Editors’ Notes

Kids (and kids at heart) can unleash their inner scientists with this captivatingly clever robot-creation kit, which features millions of different combinations for mechanical inventions. Whether you’re assembling a wheeled bot with laser guns for arms or a jolly jumping automaton with pogo-stick legs, taking your new bot on a walk through the woods will highlight the success—or the rough edges—of your design. While The Robot Factory teaches some nifty physics basics, we like to play around just for the pure fun of it.

An excellent gateway for future robot-builders


Hi everyone! Even though I am an adult- way above the age range of this game- this game is actually quite fun and inspiring! I love robots, and this game really floats my boat. The only thing that could make it better would be a “free-roam” mode where your robots are also able to roam free and interact with you and each other (but no fighting! I agree with a previous reviewer and I also like that this game has no violence).

Developer Response

Hi & thank you so much for the review! We're so happy to hear that you like the app. We'd love to hear more about the "free-roam" mode that you would like to see. Please email us at Thanks! 🎉 😀

Lots of fun


My 5-year-old really enjoys this app and figuring out how things work. It could use some more scenery options to move bots around in. Some reviewers want a bot battle option, but I love that it doesn't have one. Please keep it that way! There are plenty of fighting apps out there people can get. I'm tired of kids' apps being violent, and I'm glad this one isn't!
