When WWII Vets Control Robot Soldiers

Game Informer
22 September 2009
  • Excerpt: Given its unique dual screens and touchscreen interface, the DS should be flush with quality strategy titles, but they scarcely find their way to the handheld, likely due to hardware limitations. Robocalypse relies on action flags (marks players position on the battlefield to give your troops general orders) to circumvent this problem. It's a workable solution, but not nearly as thrilling since the game ends up doing most of the work for you.

Humor makes real-time strategy game a winner.

Common Sense Media
30 March 2009
  • Summary: Parents need to know that this real-time strategy game takes more time and thought than most other games. Players take on the role of a good guy trying to save the world from an attack of evil robots. The game has turned-based combat, where you will see explosions and shooting but no blood. There is a lot of humor and some flirty dialog between your character and the female science officer. One scene shows a character smoking a cigar.

Robocalypse (DS) Review

  • Excerpt: If real-time strategy games on consoles have historically been worse than their computer counterparts, imagine what a challenge designing a successful one for a hand-held must be! This is exactly what Vogster attempts with Robocalypse. Does it work out?

When Robots Attack

Cheat Code Central
14 February 2009
  • Conclusion: Indeed, Robocalypse may give other RTS titles on the market a run for their money. It's forming up nicely to offer what looks to be a solid RTS foundation with a healthy dose of robot-oriented humor. With Vogster using phrases like "the first true RTS on the DS" and "a technological breakthrough for the DS" to describe the game, one would hope it will hold up on closer scrutiny. We'll have to wait and see how the action unfolds.

What’s So Funny about an RTS?

Cheat Code Central
8 February 2009
  • Conclusion: Joe Commando sports dual chainguns, while Sergeant Payne cracks skulls with his Head Cracking Gauntlet Gloves. Various scouts and snipers round out the rest of the heroes but it’s the Warlord General that commands the most respect. He’s got the most experience and is incredibly powerful. An oversized chainsaw is attached to his arm, so he can reach out and shred someone.

Expert Review

Kikizo
8 January 2009
  • Conclusion: THE VERDICT: An intriguing marriage of direct and indirect control plus a serviceable gather-build-annihilate template don't quite redeem Robocalypse from a sheer lack of substance. As droll as Jay Lender's script can be, "serious" RTS fans should look elsewhere. More easy-going individuals, on the other hand, may find this to their liking. Robocalypse is out now n North America. There's no word on a European release as yet.

Robocalypse review (DS)

HonestGamers
8 December 2008
  • Excerpt: is much easier to grasp than it sounds and includes a very thorough tutorial (interwoven with the first few missions) to ensure that gamers know what they’re doing. The instruction booklet is quite helpful in this regard, as it details almost everything you’ll need to know to get started.
