Reviewed by Philip Chan

Looking for a creative game that blends the future with comic book style narrative and game play? Then the Retrobot app from developer Endeavor Bros Interactive Software is just the perfect game app for you! It is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad, and runs on iOS 4.2 or later.


When you initially load Retrobot, you will be lead to the main menu where you can view the storyline, check out the app store, obtain extra playtime, and fiddle around with the game options. You also have access to the game Center leader boards, social networking connections such as Facebook, and so on.

You can choose to begin a new story or continue where you last left off. The main storyline is set in 2025, where you are to assist a hand-built robot named, Retrobot. When a server crash occurs, an army of automated robots attempt to take control of Retrobot’s world. They manage to kidnap Spencer, Retrobot’s maker. In rebuttal, Retrobot seeks to rescue Spencer and rid of any other robot that gets in his way.

There are various “worlds” that you explore and you need to help your robot fight enemies from the skies above and at ground level. The game functions are shown on the bottom, with the left corner housing the movement function, and the right hand corner specifying the attack function. There are tips offered as you advance from each level such as “yellow enemies carry health pick-ups” and so on.

The graphics of Retrobot are beyond amazing. Everything from the story line animation and game play are absolutely superb. The characters and backdrops are so nicely drawn out and color schemes are bright and cheery, but not over the top. Robot movement and attack functions are smooth and background fluidity is spot on. Even the background music and sound effects are so perfectly matched with the game play and adds to the overall excitement to the actual game play.


For Retrobot being offered for 99 cents is such an excellent deal. It is such a highly entertaining game and offers hours of endless fun. It is a great game for audiences of all ages, and young and old players will be sure to flock back to play it during their spare time, and even in their non-spare time. It could not be more highly recommended, so get Retrobot today!
