Customer Reviews

Only things missing are SkyNet details :-)

This was expected to be a fun app, but I confess I never expected it to be as universally appealing --across age, gender and education levels.

Very well done!

Its good

I think its a good game but there should be something were you can interact with some of them as if you bought them. Besides that I really like the game!


If you like robots, you will love this app! There are many advanced robots that i've never even seen before. Enjoy.
