When no-one can figure out how to open it, the Bots sneak out and try it for themselves. Join the robots as they outwit mischievous children, curious animals, and dysfunctional inventors in their quest to find the truth. Will the Bots solve the mystery before it’s too late?
• Play as 5 different robots, each with their own abilities and quirky personalities
• Help the bots work together as a team to solve puzzles
• Bomb, burn, push and swim your way through 17 intricately designed levels

...then sit back and watch the chaos unfold!

Unfortunately, in this case graphic style totally compare with the style of the whole game - developed for the younger audience. It's hard to missed especially, when we're watching the relations between human characters in the game - they're rather simplified, naive, not to mentioned that they're quite trivial and without any depth.Surprisingly, the most "adult" characters are the robots we're controlling in this game.
The gameplay is noticeably inspired by such games as Gobliiins, becasue we've got a couple of characters (five, but they're not all available from the beginning), and everyone has some unique abilities. The puzzles are also fitted to the abilities of our robots, so it's rather not too hard to solve most of them, especially with lack of the "moving between locations" and totally simplified inventory (we could even say, that there is no classic inventory).
I don't know why, but even with all these lacks, playing in this game was quite pleasant experience for me. The humor is not something extraordinary (and rather adapted for younger audience), but still brought me some nice and relaxant moments. And solving the puzzles, even with its simplified model, still gave me some fun.
There is not too much to tell about graphic and music. It will be for sure some relief for people, who don't like "retro-style", present in most of Wadjeteye games (like "Gemini Rue" or "Blackwell" series). Music is... Decent. Nothing worth to mention, but also nothing I could complain.
To conclude - it's for sure not one of these "must have" games.You probably won't regret too much if you'll buy this one, but as I've mentioned, don't expect too much. The choice is yours.
