A Robot Escape

by TravisTX - 48 Hour Competition Entry

You are a robot attempting to escape from a robot prison. Enlist the help of deactivated robots for assistance.

Arrows or WASD to move
Enter or Space to upload your A.I. to deactivated robots
Escape to pause or get help

This was kind of an experimentation for me in using Silverlight as a game engine. Let me know how I did.

Nice! Takes a mean jump in difficulty suddenly, but I like it a lot. The CAPTCHA joke is great, too.

Challenging, but it is very hard to give in to defeat! Very nice entry though. And I agree with lilserf, 'you are a winner' text is hilarious.

I liked it! It could really have done with a restart button, and I think the levels could all have been about 4 times smaller, but I too thought the CAPTCHA joke was great and the gameplay was enjoyable.

Thanks guys. FYI there is a restart button in the pause menu. Hit ESC.

I love the captcha joke! The game is smart and well realized! I really like it!

A fun idea that looks and feels very solid.

It would be helpful if you could see the layout of deactivated robots' rooms before activating them so there isn't a need to remember exact positions from previous attempts.

A quite good puzzler. Easy introdutction, then the difficulty ramps up, and introduces new variations. good work.

The jokes are quite good as well :-)

Interesting concept. Captcha was a nice touch. :)

I'm not fond of the "multitargets control" game, but the fun ending sentences pushed me to level 8 :)

This was a new concept for me! Was a bit confused first, but as soon as I grasped it, it was a fun challenge! My only complaing would be having to count squares to exactly match the patterns I desired (perhaps alternating between gray and white regurarly would solve this issue?). The sound was there and did it's job. I say stick to Silverlight! =D
