Robotz DX – A PC Remake of the Atari ST classic

A long time ago I announced that I wanted to do a remake of a classic Atari ST game “Robotz” in Flash. Fast forward to today, and I still haven’t got around to it. However James Monkman (Heavy Stylus of RGCD) wasn’t as lazy as me, and set about creating this awesome re-imaging of the original.

Although it’s for Windows PCs only (as it was created in Game Maker 8) it’s a mighty fine game indeed! A lot of the limitations of the original have been removed, and the gameplay is faster, more frantic and basically more fun as a result. Check out this cool video to see what I mean:

The graphics are lovely, a faithful blend of rips from the ST original and some new pixel art. 505, Crazy_Q and Damo provide the stomping soundtrack.

If you remember the original, you’ve got to try this version of it.

Hell, if you just enjoy quality games – you’ve got to try Robotz DX :)

    Hey! Thanks for mentioning my game, and I’m glad you like it :)

    I’m currently working on a follow-up, which will play like a cross between the chaos engine, escape from the planet of the robot monsters and alien syndrome 😉

    wow i have been looking for this game forever, my brother and i used to play this when we were young , hahahahaha they dont make the games like they used to. I love how simple yet addicting this game is. Its funny how when you look at the games made back then they are programmed to repeat itself on certain moves, now in the newer games they adapt to your movement. Anyways love this game and glad i finally found it again .

Make yourself heard
