    Robox tries to be a good Metroid-esque game, but it falls short in the fact that, for the average gamer, it can get frustratingly hard.

    A lot of effort has gone into designing the game, it's just a shame about the poor execution.

    Robox is a game with some good ideas that unfortunately aren't capitalised on nearly enough.

    Undeniably inventive ideas are spoiled by a steep learning curve, poor signposting and duff controls. [Issue#232, p.89]
