What have we cooked up now? A robot that forces complete strangers into mortal combat. As in Combat from the Atari 2600.
Sophisticated in its immaturity, Combat demands quick reflexes and a knowledge of how to drive a 70's-era tank while providing non-Euclidian geometry and highly questionable physics.
Interestingly (or, maybe, obviously) everyone over 25 flipped out and loved re-living a cherished and long-forgotten piece of their childhood. Teenagers hung around, looking angst-y. Kids 11 and under thought it was awesome, but couldn't figure out how to play the game. It was too simplistic for the Generation of Wii.
Plus, robots are a big hit with the ladies.
Stay tuned for more Robot sightings!
