Review: Robot Rescue Revolution

robot revolution (1)

The toughest puzzler yet, with the wackiest robots around! Dodge flamers breathing scorching fires and deactivate paralyzing Tesla machines as you guide wacky robots trapped in treacherous labyrinths to the exit! Plan each escape with precision as every single robot shares linked controls hindering a simple escape plan, even for the creators of the game!

Pro:

  • Bright cartoon effect graphics.
  • Puzzle/Brain teaser which sees you controlling all on screen robots and guide them through the levels, Hitting switches, opening doors and avoiding enemies is the name of the game here.
  • Colourful detailed varied levels. From the jungle to the snow capped mountains to the treacherous high tec levels. All levels come with their own introductory video showing off the landscape before play.
  • Controls are basic which is good as it doesnt need any complicated controls. As you control all the robots off one stick, The buttons are hardly used early on and even when they are, They only act as triggers.
  • Level creator allows you to make/change every aspect of the game. It is a really powerful level creator and no expense has been spared.
  • Upload/download user created levels via PSN.
  • Rate levels with a 5 heart system. Filter levels to replay by rating.
  • At the end of the level you get a detailed breakdown of your performance. Usual stuff like world/friend ranking are in there as well as things like steps taken, time taken etc.
  • Easy restart option on levels.
  • Customise your robot.
  • Full 2 player co-op missions or battle levels. All Offline.
  • A lot of levels and many hours of fun.

Cons:

  • Long first time load on the game.
  • Lacking a decent robot customisation make up. At the moment you can only change the colour. Adding more options and perhaps an in game shop with coin pick up in levels could of added more.
  • Music is very generic.
  • The introduction flyover of levels is irritating.
  • No online play just offline offered.

In summary, The game doesn’t deviate much away from the script. Offering players a decent amount of levels and play time, The game does not really break out and offer much other than a good solid brain puzzler type game. The addition of leaderboards help keep it installed on your hard drive. For what it is, A puzzler it is good but with limited replay ability if you dont do leaderboard chasing. For the price vs content argument, It is worth its price and you can get a lot of pad smashing, swear word creating fun out of it. Worth a look for sure.

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!
