    A delightfully silly concept and presentation carries it through its disappointing lack of challenge in the early levels.

    Maybe the poison is in the dosage. This slightly frustrating and quite hard stealth game for patient players seems like it's more suited for a quick go in between something else than for extended sessions.

    Not The Robots is a little game that will probably entertain some puzzle/stealth fans, and those who are looking for a very challenging roguelike game... However, for most people, it remains repulsive and unattractive, mostly because of a cold and limited visual rendering.

So without giving too much away (since the game developer clearly loves his secrets!), this is stealth game, where you are moving around randomly generated levels eating furniture.The fantastic twist is that the furniture is also your cover, the only thing keeping you hidden from lasers, levitating skulls of death, and as the levelling system has assured me 'nastier things'. So that's twist #1. You have to eat furniture very carefully, since any cover you yank as cover is permanently deleted. Yet to leave the level you will have to grab a certain amount of it.Then it starts getting Nuts. For one thing, new objectives get added. You will have to go through a series of ordered points, scattered randomly through the level. Then you have to 'tag' every enemy on the map by getting close and using an item scary stuff. Mysterious laptops provide a gateway to the game's cryptic story of business skullduggery and a strong feeling of conspiracy. There is a level up process for the game itself instead of the player. You unlock different challenges and operations and more.All of this is to say that Not The Robots is a fantastic, fun, panicky stealth game, pure and simple. There are no weapons (at least, so far), there is limited cover, and there are plenty of lasers and drones to end you. The game seems to have a tremendous amount of game play and deep story for and indie game. Expand

    A damn good stealth game, with good graphics, randomly generated levels, a fantastic level up system, great mechanics and a well-told story.A damn good stealth game, with good graphics, randomly generated levels, a fantastic level up system, great mechanics and a well-told story. All of this makes Not The Robots something very special. I'd strongly recommend this, although it's not perfect. Still a great game, and one I'm going to spend many, many hours on. Expand
