A nice little indie production that creates an alloy of traditional JRPG and puzzle solving in the spirit of games such as Solstice for the NES.

The exploration and puzzle solving all takes place inside the massive space ship. As a maintenance droid the player possesses no weapons to defend himself and has to overcome adversity by problem solving and navigation skills. Some of the jumping puzzles can be agrevating but nothing that feels unfair.

The combat system comes into play whenever a security door or an opponent needs to be hacked. The electronic avatar of the player character Asimov possesses the capability to attack the security measures of the system he hacks. Over the course of his adventures he rescues a vide range of avatars that has lost their robotic bodies. They complement Asimovs Jack-of-all-Trades skills with their specialities.

There is not much innovation about the combat compared to some of the more popular Japanese RPGs out there but it does it job well and achieves enough strategic depth for the entertainment value in a product of this size.

The way the game is set up it is possible to solve many puzzles forcefully by hacking most of the opposition making the actual puzzle solving alot easier. A welcome function for players that dont favour jumping skills or the puzzles them selves.

Playtime is between 5 to 15 hours depending on how thorough the ship is searched.

It's a cute little turn based RPG with a charming story involving robots that have just enough AI as to exude personality in the way WALL-E's robot characters did. The fighting moves have just enough variation, and anyone that's played a JRPG in the last 20 years will have no trouble identifying the "physical," "magical" and "AoE" moves. There are some places where you can choose to grind up character stats by revisiting enemies in cyberspace if needed, but you also seem to be able to pursue the story without being gated. The "maze" of the ship and platforming are interesting without being overwhelming. The combat has a bit of a Shadowrun inspired feel to it which will make you grin with nostalgia.

For a cheap little indie RPG it's fun. It's not going to blow your mind, but for a casual time waster it does the job splendidly, hearkening back to simpler times. Sometimes you just need a break from modern real time RPGs that require 100% of your focus and engagement, and this game understands that.

Mr. Robot is pretty awesome. It's a strange combo of oldschool isometric platform game à la 8-bit games like Head Over Heels, and JRPG style fights.

Mr. Robot is long, the combat is tedious, the controls are finicky and yet, I keep coming back to it. It's just the right mix of story, puzzle, and combat to be engaging.

Really fun! Just SO FUN!!! Lots of fun puzzles to do and even some secret rooms! Although it's got a few glitches like all other games, you can Hack into robots you encounter and even Kill them IMMEDIATELY after the hack! Watch out for crushers and incinerators, though. They are INSTANT kill! You dont want to walk under them Especially in hard mode because in hard, you only have ONE life! Plus, Some enemies might be even stronger than they were in easy! In the Final Hack, you have to navigate your way to the very master system of the ship, H.E.L (HEL). He's Very tough, Even though I have No Idea what H.E.L stands for. But If you fully Charge Everyone's Extremes, It will go Much better than without the extremes. Not going to ruin any more of the game, so Have Tons of fun playing it! Sorry for Wasting your time. If you actually read all this without, well, Skipping any of it, All I can say is, "Props to you.". Enjoy!

While I appreciated and enjoyed the 3D isometric platforming aspect of the game (which was admittedly the majority of the game), it's dragged down horribly by an utterly one-dimensional, boring, repetitive RPG-type combat system, as well as an uninspired storyline chock full of sci-fi clichés. While I was able to look past its flaws enough to finish a playthrough of the game, in hindsight, as a whole, it's not a game I would recommend.

It's a fun little platformer puzzle game. The graphics remind me a bit of Startopia (man, I wish that game was released on Steam) and it has a certain charm. The game uses an isometric camera angle as well, so it's similar to the latest Megaman games I guess (the Battle Network games). Same goes for the battle system, which is actually pretty fun. Might be worth it if you have some extra money to spend.

This game is the ReBoot of JRPGs - it follows the adventures of computers in an odd, janky world.

Mr. Robot is a very tame RPG that doesn't try to do anything fancy. In fact, it is an incredibly slow grind with very little sense of progression. The balance is poor as well - on hard difficulty, there is very little you can do to prevent death when you start the game, and by the end, you are so overpowered that the final boss battle is pathetic.

The story, too, is very slow and uninteresting - a rogue AI has taken over a space ship, and you must take it back over using the help of robots that seem to have very little vested interest. None of the characters are appealing, or have any kind of recognizable peronality.

Overall, avoid Mr. Robot unless you can somehow win a bet involving boring RPGs.

1 out of 5 foxes.

Great little Indie Game, mix of puzzler and RPG with two very different game modes.

Steam unfortunately doesn't include the level editor.

FYI as long as you're willing to die occaisionally no grinding needed.

An attempt at putting Puzzle Platforming and Traditional RPG gameplay into the same experience. The RPG sections play out as expected and work fine. The Puzzle Platforming, on the other hand, do not. Using an Xbox 360 controller, the player character and movable objects slip and slide haphazardly. Movable blocks seem like they're supposed to lock into the squares of the playfield, but do not more than half the time. Trying these sections with keyboard and mouse feel even worse.

There's a lot to like about this game, but platforming in the isometric view was a pain. And when you solve a puzzle with a lot of block pushing, then botch the platforming and die, it resets all the blocks. Who has time for that? If you're fairly skilled or very patient, go ahead and try it - it's cool when it's not frustrating.

A weird hybrid of puzzle, action, jump'n'run, RPG and round-based combat (a la HoMaM).

A real gem, and highly enjoyable experience.

it's an isometric-puzzle-platformer-RPG, and it's very fun. The writing feels a little juvenile, but it's made up for with the unique music and platforming elements.
