RoboSport is a 1991 turn-based strategy computer game. It was created by Edward Kilham and developed and published by Maxis Software.

The player creates teams of robots and maneuvers them around a board to map out one "turn" of movement. The other players and AI do the same and then all movement is played out simultaneously. Different robots had different weapons, like rifles, grenade launchers, and so on. There were various modes such as capture the flag and a "hostage" game. It bears a superficial resemblance to the Richard Garfield tabletop game, RoboRally.

Maxis developed this game for DOS, Macintosh and Windows 3.x. In 1992, it was released for the Amiga.
