    Let me be blunt: this game is a joy to play. Making these adorable little fellows happy is a delightful experience.

    Popcannibal has crafted a wickedly clever puzzle title that looks and feels fantastic. Who'd have imagined playing party planner could have been so fun? Girls may like robots, but we really love this game.

    A charming puzzle game based on the passions of different types of people, and the optimal seating arrangements for them.

    It is silly, and it's strange, and it's simple -- and the truth is that aside from a couple of technical quibbles (and a bit of sadness, for obvious reasons, that girls don't like nerds), it's also really good. If you like puzzles like girls like robots, then you'll like Girls Like Robots.

    Girls Like Robots is as charming as the title suggests. There's depth to the intricacies of the puzzles and creativity in the various gameplay types.

    There are small gripes – having to use an undo button rather than pick tiles back off the grid irks in 'standard' scenarios, for instance – but they slowly melt away in the face of such eclectic gameplay. Seating arrangements have rarely felt so intelligent, knowing, or inventive.

    Girls Like Robots is a quirky seating arrangement, or rather relationship simulator set in a high school love drama. It is perhaps the most serious game to be published by adult swim. It does however have a sense of humour, and despite not having anything fart or die horribly it is a fun game. There aren't many games on the App Store with this kind of gameplay, and as such it certainly fills a gap between Joining Hands and Triple Town.

    Very original concept. Not as engrossing as other puzzle games can be, but definitely enjoyable to play through. Changes and twists areVery original concept. Not as engrossing as other puzzle games can be, but definitely enjoyable to play through. Changes and twists are introduced often enough to keep things feeling fresh/new to the very end - highly suggest buying this, [a s] did well with this title! Expand
