Roboblitz has a lot of nice ideas. The ability to pick up, carry, and swing around objects is a unique mechanic, and you'll use it often and to great amusement throughout the game. Everything is affected by physics, which can lead some some really fun and dynamic gameplay.

One of the most notable things that sets this game apart is the fact that each set of levels has its own distinct theme, and will have you performing wildly different objectives from the others; the result is that each feels like its own smaller game. This is a really interesting way of keeping things fresh throughout the adventure.

Roboblitz also features great visuals, and good sound design. The game isn't necessarily without its flaws (some weird physics occasionally, a couple of the bosses are really difficult), but it's definitely worth playing through. Fun little game.

I should note that, particularly in boss encounters, this game can present quite a number of bugs, which can lead to some very frustrating repetition. If this isn't for you, you may want to stay away (or take advantage of some sneaky console commands to help you get past buggy bosses).

I just bought this game only to write a review on Steam. I finished it years ago and I still remember how fun, addicting and joyful experience it was. A game full of humor, action, and puzzle solving. If there only were achievements... I would have got 'em all for sure!
I remember I cried when I finished it. Just don't remember was that because of fun or drama... You know what, I gonna replay this gem title once again just to find that out.
Ten stars.

Not a terrible game. Decent puzzle mechanics. Bugs kill the game though. Fighting the same boss a couple dozen times because it won't properly follow its script or getting stuck in a wall for some reason. If you pick up an object at the wrong angle, you literally move at a snail's pace. Recommend only if part of an indie bundle.

This was the game that made me wish we could post negative reviews on Steam instead of just positive ones. Well, now I can!

I enjoyed this at first, as it did take me back to the earlier days of 3D puzzle platforming. The freedom to sort of hop anywhere without hitting invisible walls and just play around a little bit is nice. The levels are fairly well made. You get a decent array of tools that allowed for some ingenuitive thinking. However, once you reach the boss fights, this is all for nothing.

The boss fight are an absolute mess. They don't work. They really don't work. Try as you might, the boss encounters are bugged in numerous ways that will make it horribly frustrating if not outright impossible to win. Not because the fights are so hard or challenging. The fights themselves are just faulty in design and don't work the way they were intended. I made a thread on the Steam forum talking about how wretched are, so feel free to go check that out if you're curious as to how broken the boss fights really are.

I actually emailed the development studio about this, suggesting they patch it. The response I received was this, "unfortunately we're far past the point of being able to update the game[.]" This person is a damn liar. Roboblitz is self-published for computers. This is an actual case of the developer just not giving a crap about fixing their messed up game.

Do not even consider buying Roboblitz unless Naked Sky Entertainment actually decides to patch these horrible boss encounters to make them work. Should they ever do so, I will gladly re-evauluate the game and revise this review.

Ok, I will not lie, this game IS short, very very short, but its mechanics are very nice, and even not being long and hard it can give you tons of fun, about 5 Hours of gameplay only, what is pretty sad =/, but even those 5 hours are very enjoyable, also, it comes with a level editor what makes it even more enjoyable, I dont know if you can download and play user made levels but you probrably can.
Even with all the bad aspects such as short and kinda easy I certainly recommend that game. =)
