Cute adventure game get! Robo Quest is an adorable point and click adventure created by Glauzer and Adm244 using Adventure Game Studio. One could easily compare it to Machinarium in general layout and style, but the story, setting, and artwork are something else entirely. It's a short experience but an uncommonly engaging one, and you'll fall in love with the little robo's plight from the moment you see him napping!
As the game begins, you see our robot pal's floating island/house puttering through the skies. Then, t crashes into a land mass, setting off alarms and waking the robot from his recharge station. The crystal that powers his ship soon shatters, so he has to head out in search of a replacement. And fast, too, or he'll be late for the party! The controls are fairly standard for a point and click adventure game, just click on objects to use or examine them and slide the mouse to the top of the screen for the inventory and game menu.
One creative feature in Robo Quest is the use of modules. Double click the robot and you'll get a close-up view of his front panel. Here, you can activate or deactivate modules to give him special abilities, such as super strength to lift heavy objects. There are some puzzles you'll need modules to solve, so if you're stuck, turn on the muscles and see what happens.
Robo Quest is a simple game of logical puzzle solving and a charm-filled atmosphere. The text mentions a "full version" of the game, but at the time of writing only this free version exists. With a little hype and a little luck, maybe the developers will be inspired to create more in the future. Either way, Robo Quest is sure to tickle your adventure spot and make you crave more of the same!
