Robot Dinosaurs That Shoot Beams When they Roar
Robot Dinosaurs That Shoot Beams When they Roar is a short, character-driven side-scrolling shoot-'em-up, controlled with the mouse. Hold the mouse button to fire, but be sure to release the button to let your power meter recharge. Due to the thematic complexities in Robot Dinosaurs That Shoot Beams When they Roar, the following review will take the form of a dialectic between myself and 5th-century Greek philosopher Socrates.
Psychotronic: There is only one level in this game, and a short one at that.
Socrates: Robot dinosaurs that shoot beams when they roar.
Psychotronic: Including lives and a health meter seems to have been merely a nod to convention, and not a considered design decision. Rather than implementing collision physics, the developer has allowed the protagonist to fly through solid walls, thus breaking the illusion of a persistent game world.
Socrates: Robot dinosaurs that shoot beams when they roar!
Psychotronic: Most players will find the difficulty level low and replay incentives limited. The artwork barely meets the minimum requirements to be comprehensible. The sound effects appear to be improvised vocalizations. Gameplay depth is non-existent.
Psychotronic: I concede.
