Summary

Robot Odyssey is an educational classic.

The Good

I love the fact that the game is both a fun adventure and a learning experience. I also think that the sophistication of the player programming is impressive for such an old game. There are also some great tutorials which explain how to program the robots using logic gates.

The Bad

This PC version didn't look too good with it's CGA graphics. The earlier apple version looked better.

The Bottom Line

The player must program their robot helpers to solve various puzzles. The programming involves "soldering" electrical circuits inside the robots. It's LOTS of fun, and truly imaginitive. It is also surprisingly difficult. There still hasn't been any game like this one.
