Robotco ($1.99)

Hey Guys,
Noticed there wasn't a thread for this game yet, seems like its exactly like the bomb mini game in Super Mario 64 DS, but with robots, one thing that is cool is that you can move up to 4 robots at a time, instead of just one bomb like in the DS mini game. Seems like it could be a really fun high score game like Flight Control.

Wow, you're right. Regardless, this game is not worth $1.99. Don't get me wrong, this is a fun game (at least the DS one), but you get get way better bang for your buck.

Thanks for the video, just as I thought, its just like the minigame in Mario 64 DS. One thing it lacks though that made the DS version so intense was that if you left a bomb on the screen too long they would start to get larger and eventually blow up, ending the game, to me from the video it seems there's no repercussions for having too many robots on the screen and you could just leave them all there til the level ends. I'll wait for a lite version to try it out.

New game mode!

The price hasn't dropped but they added a new insanely addictive game mode called Expert. Sort four colors instead of two... as you get more finger dexterity you can get lots, and lots of bonus points...

I haven't seen a youtube video of it yet, but I tested it last night.

Keep up the good work tA!

It's a fun little game. I recently reviewed it and had some fun with it, and was just informed about the update, which sounds like it might get a bit crazy. But I'm going to download the update just to try it out. I'll probably suck at it.

Haha, I love it!

It gets game over quicker than Normal mode but I think expert mode is about learning finger dexterity. I'm already getting much better now.

Still a bit too hard on expert
