Bots Are Stupid
A 2D game where you try to maneuver robots through different platforming levels. It sets itself apart from conventional platformers by offering an alternative, more precise way of user input. Instead of directly controlling the character’s movement, the player has to write a set of simple instructions telling his robot what to do. The bot will then follow those instructions precisely and maybe (or maybe not) finish the level.
The commands for the robots are designed to be as simple as possible in order to make the game accessible to anyone. This means that you are not required to have any prior programming/tech knowledge to be able to “program” the bots. The game might also have an educational value by introducing players to the very basics of scripting/programming in a playful way.
18 uniquely challenging Platformer Levels
Ultra-precise control by writing instructions

Get-A-Grip Chip is a fun platformer for people who know one obvious truth: The grappling hook is the best part of every video game.
Launch yourself around the screen navigating terrain and avoiding hazards. You can’t jump, but you spend the majority of the game airborne. The mechanics and sound design feel crisp. The art design is fun without being overly cutesy. The difficulty is intermediate. If you sometimes play games casually with friends/family this is a game that can be picked up pretty quickly and where you can make meaningful progress without being super deftly handed. The game has full controller support, but it plays fine with a Mouse and keyboard. The checkpoints are frequent enough not to inspire extreme frustration. At the same time, each level has secrets and collectibles that require stronger play. It also has a global speedrunning scoreboard for every level, and achievements for completing every level without dying so beating levels without using the checkpoints at all and finding the fastest possible path is rewarding and gives very strong players something to do after completing the main game.

I really enjoyed this title - the mechanics are smooth and easy to employ. I played it on keyboard and mouse and the game itself recommends that the player should use a controller. I really liked keyboard and mouse. Its a great platformer to speedrun; for a greater challenge try to find all of the battery bots. There’s 8 per level and some are overt, others are hidden. There’s a fun rhythm grab, pull, and release. Building momentum is part of the fun. The set pieces on each level keep the game interesting. The highlight is the cute character design and the soundtrack, which I loved.
You feel the inspiration in the classic platform. It is a challenge each level I recommend it if you like games like megaman and super meat boy.

It’s an excellent game with an awesome art and amazing soundtrack.
Are you looking for a good challenge? This game is definitely for you!
Robo’s World: The Zarnok Fortress
Robo’s World: The Zarnok Fortress is yet another low quality retro pixel platformer infesting Steam. In this one, you play a robot or something, but it’s hard to tell because the controls don’t work properly. I couldn’t even use the menu to see if I could get fullscreen going. Could it be because I had a HOTAS plugged in and it assumed it was a gamepad? Irrelevant, because that kind of laziness from the developers isn’t acceptable.
If you can’t get the basics right, you don’t get a thumbs up in your reviews.
Great gameplay, challenging but rewarding. Love the retro platform style, and the sound to accompany it is fantastic. The adventure itself is open-ended, leading to all sorts of paths through the world as you progress towards the ship’s core. I would definitely recommend picking this game up and seeing for yourself. Tons of fun!

A demonstration of how to annoy player just for the heck of it.
Lucky me gets to write the first review for CUBE-e 2, which is a 2D retro pixel puzzle platformer/shooter from known asset flippers, Piece of Voxel. This is a basic retro pixel shooter/platformer game where you guide a robot over various platforms on some planet, dodging spinning blades and shooting robots that float from the sky before they can shoot you. Ho hum.
They chose to use obsolete retro pixel “art” as a substitute for contemporary PC graphics. It’s unclear if this is due to lack of budget or talent, regardless, the overall visual quality of the game is extremely low as a result. Resolution and controls are locked. These flaws push this game far below minimum acceptable standards for PC. There’s also an insulting $10 USD price tag for this garbage. Yeah, $10, the same money that would get you one of hundreds of AAA games on sale. Or this trash.
Excellent game. Lots of variety of character and scenarios. It brings an innovative gameplay. congratulations, I indicated to all my friends.
Target Audience: Those looking for a unique shooter with friends to play with
Gravity Heroes is one of those games that has an interesting concept on the surface that actually does live up to how you’d want it to play out in terms of gameplay. The ability to move gravity does help a lot here without being overly powerful….as long as you use it correctly and skillfully. You’ll struggle a tiny bit at first as your brain needs a period of time to sorta “reset” how it thinks, but if you adapt, you’ll be matrix dodging and zooming across the map and dealing with the interesting problems put before you in level design and enemy placement. The game is easy to follow and look at for the most part and enemies have clear attack animations and readable tells, even if you end up running into them with the chaos of everything around you.
Short campaign but great replayability especially in local coop with my son. (No technical issues.)
June 4th, 2020: this is an update of my initial review from May, 26th, 2020.
After having played the game in 3 distinct sessions for a total of 14 hours-ish, I unfortunately feel like I can’t recommend this game ON STEAM.
The game itself (for 95% of it) is GREAT.
Unfortunately, the game is really broken on Steam and the developer doesn’t seem to be able to fix it to run a stable version that everybody can run and play….
Either the game doesn’t start altogether or it starts painfully but then crashes hours into it and is a hassle to restart.
Bananas Academy’s Psyber
I saw the trailer for this and was intrigued at the idea of teaching someone the fundamentals of programming while being a puzzle based 2D platformer game. Played it for 1 hour and let my 12yo niece play it afterwards. She finished all the 4 chapters (4 chapters available in the game as of writing this review) and she wanted more. I was fascinated how the game kept her engaged and had her attention throughout. Being an Indie developer myself I want to support up and coming developers. I can see how good concepts like these shouldn’t be compared to titles from established developers. Truly nice work and idea on the part of this developer for bringing this concept into fruition. Looking forward to the future expansive updates or possibly new titles on this concept soon.
Okay, so first of all I’d like to start with what I liked in the product.
1. This is a very cool concept of teaching programming. I am a competitive programmer myself I regularly
attend monthly challenges in websites like Codeforces and Codechef. I remember how I struggled to learn the fundamentals of programming as none of my school text books had a proper exposure to build a base towards coding.
2. Game is buttery smooth even in my Intel HD 5500.
Here’s what I saw in the product which I feel needs more attention
So… this is a free game, and it starts out feeling ok. The basic gameplay isn’t a problem. The issues begin after playing for 15+ minutes and you realize that you’d like your player to die in case there is an upgrade to add variety to the overall gameplay. Well, the upgrades are ridiculously expensive and that means grinding for at least an hour or two before going for the cheapest of them… The overall experience is negative due to the lack of variety. I can’t suggest to anyone spending more than 15 minutes playing it.
Best game i’ve ever played
