Robots. Who understands them? Apparently not kitties, since Robot jettisoned the last one into outer space. Now, Robot has set the cold, clicking mass of circuits that functions as his heart onto a new, tastier, creamier goal. That's right; Robot Wants Ice Cream, and that's an objective I can get behind. Together with Puppy, Robot will brave the dangers of a whole new world in this epic finale of the Robot Wants Series from Mike Hommel (Hamumu Software). It's a platforming adventure with power ups, baddies, missiles, and more!
Controls are the same as before, using the [arrow] keys to move around, and the various power-ups you acquire will tell you how to use them. Some special abilities require you to use special atomic energy to activate them, which can be collected from enemies and stored in batteries. In a nice change of pace, Robot can actually take three hits before being destroyed and respawning at the last encoder station you touched. If you wind up accidentally leaving Puppy behind, or if he falls off the screen, don't worry; the power of Robot's love will make Puppy magically reappear beside him shortly. At least, that's the explanation I came up with. Press [P] at any time to pause the game.
As the last game in a wildly popular series, Robot Wants Ice Cream shows a considerable amount of innovation over its predecessors, introducing all sorts of new things to ensure that you stay entertained for the duration. Not only is there a whole host of new power-ups that grant Robot new abilities and make use of your canine companion, but you'll also face-off against new baddies and bosses. The only real downside is that the enemies rarely feel as challenging as the platforming is. This is definitely the most fleshed out of the Robot games, and it keeps pulling out new things to surprise you the further you go. Robot has come a long way from his humble beginnings, and you couldn't ask for a better end to his adventures than this fun, bouncy, creative adventure. Mind you, I don't entirely agree with Robot's loyalties. Everyone knows that dogs drool and cats rule.
