TEST IT - BLOW IT UP - REDESIGN IT
Robotics is all about problem analysis, design, engineering, testing, prototyping, breaking down, starting over, redesigning, retesting, etc, until you eventually have a robot that solves the problem.
Roboteer1 brings this process to a non-technical game level where the player is the Robotics Engineer, i.e Roboteer, who has to perform all the tasks of the Robotics Engineer, including:
- analyzing the challenge
- formulating a design,
- constructing the design,
- prototyping the robot,
- testing its operation,
- blowing it up and starting over,
- repeating this prototyping cycle until the design and operation can successfully complete the challenge.
WHAT PLAYERS THINK:
“Whoever designed this is evil”, High School student, on his 8th prototyping cycle.
“I did it, my robot won a medal”, 8 year old who completed his first challenge.
“I love blowing up my robot, its so cool”, 5 year old who is still learning
“ I could use this in class”, School teacher with unruly, bored students
”Oh, this has girly colors”, young teenage girl who likes robots.
“Roboteer is like the Minecraft of Robotics” , a confirmed gamer.
only 2 things matter in this game.
1. build your robot by dragging your components onto the “Power Cube” or other components.
2. Play button to operate your robot, and touch the screen to activate the virtual joystick. All other components have touch buttons.
What's New in Version 1.2
- 8 New challenges
- New playground area to test builds
- New components
- UI improvements
- Fixed some physics issues
Fun but needs work!
Great concept, super fun levels, still buggy. I really enjoy this game but it needs a bit more polishing till i would call it finished. Sometimes girders go on wrong or wont angle correctly and for some reason wherever I load it its upside down. Still having a blast playing it though!!
I love the concept and the gameplay is pretty good just needs to be less laggy it's really laggy on older devices that needs to be fixed it also sometimes crashes over still like it
EXTREMELY IMPORTANT:DO NOT IGNORE THIS MESSAGE SVP
Ok so I played it like,2 times and it was perfectly fine everything was ok and I really liked the game.But then after I came back to play and it suddenly started to be laggy...:/ There was no update,just to say.It would be better if you could please fix this bug(if it is one),aaaand maybe add a superior maximum number of like girders and everything else,maybe it could be infinite on 'Playground'?It would be really awesome to build giant robots and all this cool stuff!!Thanks!
