Everything About Fiction You Never Wanted to Know.
Jump to navigation Jump to search

  • Excuse Plot: You fell out of your bed and ended up in Robotropolis. Have fun!
  • Gameplay Derailment: Many of the early puzzles can be solved through brute force, such as programming a robot to bounce randomly around until it eventually bumps into and picks up the object needed rather than the more time-consuming programming for it to follow the walls. While you can progress this way, in later levels you will regret not thinking your programming through.
  • Good Bad Bugs: In at least the TRS-80 version, when faced with a button on the opposite side of a wall, you could put something in your robot's grip, take hold of that item and then simply shove the robot through the wall to reach and activate the button. You could use the same tactic to drop a robot further on into a puzzle than where you were intended to start.
