  • Summary: Puzzle Bots is a light-hearted adventure game guaranteed to put a smile on your face.

The fun begins when Zander (who is possibly the world's most absent-minded inventor) trips over a metal box buried outside of Dr. Hugo's Factory for Making Robots. When he and his colleagues can’t figure out how to open it, their "offspring" -- five tiny robots, each with a unique puzzle-solving skill -- sneak out and try it for themselves. What they discover is the first step to a grand adventure, leading to a mystery as old as the factory itself. Expand

  1. Though many of us adults will only play it once due to its easy-to-remember solutions, silly demeanor and short lifespan, the kids will definitely want to replay this game over and over, so it can be recommended for people of all ages.

    Once you slip into the mindset and embrace Puzzle Bots' lo-fi charms, the initial clunkiness dissipates into a cloud of goodwill, and chipping your way through 17 stages of point-and-click puzzling seems like a fine way to occupy an evening.

    Considering the low price tag (USD$4.95), adventure fans would do well to check Puzzle Bots out. Just be prepared for a frustrating final level and silly plot twist that comes together a bit too quickly.

I wish the critics would talk about this one, it tells the story of a little robot who is going out and solving puzzles. Very fascinating cartoony graphics. Expand

    Nice little adventure game with a humorous, wacky and lengthy plot happening along the way. You play the tiny robots adventuring -solvingNice little adventure game with a humorous, wacky and lengthy plot happening along the way. You play the tiny robots adventuring -solving puzzles (not difficult, except a couple at the end)- and in the meantime you watch the story develop until you finally are directly involved. The game is short (approx. 3-4h playtime) but fun and it's interesting to follow the story, with a lot of good voice acting alongside the cartoony characters. Recommended for a casual, relaxing experience. Expand

    A surprisingly good effort. Doesn't try to be more than it is by dragging out gameplay. Keeps it short and sweet. A couple puzzles struck meA surprisingly good effort. Doesn't try to be more than it is by dragging out gameplay. Keeps it short and sweet. A couple puzzles struck me as vastly more difficult than every other puzzle in the game, which was frustrating and interrupted the flow for me and would keep me from recommending it to younger kids.
