"Blocky Girls really like blocky Robots".

The Square University has sendout its blocky students to discover different places in this weird world.
Firstly everything seems very easy. Girls like Robots but dislike Nerds. So you have to manage the seats in a bus that nobody gets annoyed. With each level the complexity of seats and possible combinations raises.This little action puzzle game has probably not the greatest visual animations but it's still lovely designed and the logic puzzles feel quite comfortable. Highly enjoyable gameplay.

And then it goes crazy. Suddenly you get an Teacher character who loves bugs, ladybugs, fishes, fires, pies, and mustache robots. But that is still not the best. In the end you fly to space and handle space seals, alien slughats, alien girls and ofc alien nerds. Fantastic. Before you can think who likes who you must act to build up your laserproof shield. The endboss is quite challenging.
This game simple makes fun. Also to mention the endless squaredance soundtrack and that it is now in Japanese avaible. There must be some fans out there ...

It's actually logic puzzles; nothing to do with robosexuality. The art and the cutscenes/transitions can get abrasive, but it's entertaining enough, although it never gets very challenging.

This is one of the most insane puzzle games I've ever played. The mechanics are simple: you have a grid of X by Y squares, place your pieces down in a way that everyone likes who they're seated beside (the basic rule of the game: Girls like Robots. Girls don't like Nerds. Nerds like Girls, Robots, but not other Nerds).

Except then suddenly you're learning that June actually really likes Bugs. But Bugs don't like Girls. And Ben likes June, so make sure to leave a space near June for Ben so he can ask her out, and...

The game's complexity builds slowly, and it comes through adorably quirky cutscenes. It also has 3 tiers of medal per stage, but in a twist I absolutely adore, "gold" does not mean "perfect" - it just means "the highest". This is one of those games where the designer didn't go through and mathematically 'solve' every stage and expect you to do the same, and that goes a long way for me in saying "This is the kind of game devoted to fun first, humor second, and everything else is just a bonus".

Plus, if you score enough golds and things, you unlock alternate silly modes. I'm waiting to see what Nerd Drop is.

edit: Infinite Nerd Drop is everything I wanted from the name.

This game is pretty hilarious. The puzzles get more difficult as you get further into the levels, but the hilarity of the 'plot' and the reasoning.... Girls like robots, nerds like edges, girls are only okay with nerds if there is an adjacent pie.... Just a quirky unrealistic logic game, but hey, who knows! Maybe some girls really do like pie THAT MUCH. Turn it around from a way to a man's heart is through his stomach.... now it's a way to sit next to a girl is through an adjacent pie. It's definitely some good laughs with some 'wtf logic' moments.

After eight hours of enjoying the small storyline, smiling at the art, rubbing my forehead in frustration at the occasional level, trying to get gold for all of the puzzles and giving the nice message I gave to one of the developers, I finally have my review for Girls Like Robots.

I was not disappointed.

I don't play many puzzle games, but I'm happy that this one was the one off. Basically, you have to arrange the people in the way the game demands; Girls like the robots, robots like the girls, nerds like the robots and the edge of the playing field and, last but not least, the girls don't want to be near the nerds. It's all straightforward until you begin to realize that this isn't a linear, repetitive game. No, the developers keep throwing new things at you in order to keep it fresh. This made it extremely entertaining the entire playthrough.

The music isn't too bad, but at times it could be repetitive. Then again, I was focusing like a madman on the puzzles and the art (the square people are cute, ok!?) so the music didn't really capture my attention that much.

All in all, a good puzzle game for the price and an enjoyable one at that. I recommend it to anyone interested and I hope they find the same amount of enjoyment that I did in the game.
