Quick review:

Short Verdict: This game is an action-puzzle platformer where you control a robot trying to ready a cannon at a space station. While potentially good, this game has so many problems and bugs (random crashes included) that I just can't recommend it. I wouldn't even recommend you play it even if you already have it. Unless you somehow enjoy getting frustrated.

Pros:
  • Cute robotic/tech graphics
  • Nice BGM
  • A lot of nice ideas and unique concepts (that fall short)
  • Exploring for upgrade points adds fun and replay value to the stages
  • Nice in-game hint system if you don't know what to do
  • Different tools and weapons for you to use in different situations

Cons:
  • Very clumsy controls
  • I couldn't play it with a controller because it exchanged the right X axis for the Y axis (in other words, moving the stick up would turn the camera left and tilting it right would make the camera go up)
  • It made me downgrade PhysX in order to play
  • The game crashes from time to time without warning
  • Boring action/shooting part
  • Puzzles are way too easy
  • The stuff you're carrying often gets stuck on walls or on the floor
  • A lot of other bugs, like a shuttle door not opening when enemies try to force their way out
  • Poor upgrade system with very little information
  • The boss battle I tried didn't work as should (it should break grates, but didn't), even after watching a video and reading the in-game hints to make sure I was doing the right thing
  • Health bar is really hard to see in the heat of battle

Bought on / for: Monday Bundle 30 by Indie Gala Weekly for and average of US$ 0.34 (R$ 0,85). And that's about US$ 0.34 more than what I'd pay for it.

Similar games: None that I remember right now. Please, tell me if you have any suggestions, because I'd really like to play a conceptually similar game that's actually playable.

Heyyo, the frist Retail game to come out on the Unreal Engine 3, this is one fun action / puzzle game. It's not uber-graphics, but the physics and sound effects are fantastic. :)

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).

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.

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.

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.

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. =)

RoboBlitz started off being a pretty cute puzzle based game with occasional shooter elements, then it flipped 180 into a crazed action frenzy challenged by 6 different enemy NOEDs. They didn't bother to make them easy to kill, nor did they make it obvious how to go about killing them. Beyond that subtle difficulty, the game holds interest with its basic story, handful of weapons, lasers, a spin move, barrel throws, tractor beam, levitation gun, and a few additional power ups. The game play is very consistent making it a tolerable game, but nothing stood out that would make me recommend buying it.
