Summary

Monobot is a charming puzzle game, it tells the story of a runaway factory worker bot. You explore the world getting upgrades to allow you to traverse the land. You don’t have a lot of actions available to you and for that, the game is very slow and methodical. It does do a solid job of getting you thinking, add in stealth and the game begins to take shape. You can easily find lore stations which is a nice distraction. I liked the game for a short while but Monobot is a game that gives you very few breadcrumbs and for that, I started to get frustrated, I never knew what I could or couldn’t do in the game and my enjoyment suffered. Overall I found Monobot to be a game that you either love or hate, in the mood for or not in the mood for.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
