Love can make people commit mistakes, follies andádo many other silly things. Would anybody ináhis right mind risk hisálife, move under theárays ofálaser guns, break legs inátheástone conglomerations, carry dreadful bombs andáwander intoáfatal mazes? Love is aávirus; andáthereáare noáwalls which can stopáit. Even robots canĺt resistáit. Youácan now become aáparticipant ináthisáunusual love story. Tryátoáadd some logic andáconsistency inátheábustle ofáthisá hot cybernetic passion andáovercome, together with Robo, allámanner ofáobstacles such asáwalking through snow storms, scorched deserts andácold mountains. Usually only human intellect could rescue machines that areágoing this mad!
So Robo has toásave Eny, who is kidnapped byátheáevil Discharger, andánow held inátheáunderground compound which isáprotected byálasers. Ináorder toámove, our hero has toáblock laser beams that guard allápassageways orádestroy laser cannons. This objective can be reached byámoving stones toáblock laser beams, using bombs toáexplode laser cannons oráeven, forátheágaming Einsteins, making cannons destroy eacháother. Theágame rules are very simple, but theágame itself isánot, because bombs andástones are veryáscarce.
Are you ready toátest your brains ináthis cyber situation andáconquer theápath to trueálove?
I don't want to stop playing a game because I got tired of it but because I finished it... Robo has a well deserved place in the Top 5 list in its genre and it's very easy to appreciate the thought and care that was put into the game.
The graphics of the game are great and there are lots of little cool graphical touches, like the way you get to see Robo's reflection any time he's close to a mirror or the short circuiting of a laser cannon just before it explodes.
Robo doesnĺt really break any new ground. What it does do, however, is take a familiar concept, throw it in a new environment, and make it fun. For die hard puzzle fans there will be plenty of challenge in the later levels, and for the casual gamer, the concept is simple enough that youĺll probably get hooked before you realize how difficult itĺs gotten. Add on top of that some slick visuals and a decent soundtrack, and youĺve got one puzzle game that you shouldnĺt pass by.
