Conclusion: Robo Jam isn’t going to win any awards, but it’s nice to see Sony catering to a market that can enjoy this type of game. You don’t see this everyday from a big-wig company. It’s also nice to see them actually use the buzzers; because at first we were somewhat worried they might only be for one or two games and then never be seen from again.
Excerpt: Back in October, the first Buzz! Junior game, Jungle Party was released. You might have read my review on it then. Well now, the Buzz! folks have been kind enough to provide us with a second one, Buzz! Junior: Robo Jam . The graphics in Robo Jam are the same cartoon style as Jungle Party except this time, instead of all the games being set in a jungle, they're set in a futuristic scene with metal and robots everywhere. Your characters are robots now.
Summary: Parents need to know that this is a party game geared for children. It's composed of two dozen brief mini-games that require no reading and take mere seconds to learn. There is violence, but it is cartoon-like and directed only towards robots (there are no people or animals in the game). The mildly aggressive shenanigans include pillow fights, rocket cars that smash into targets, and pistons that squash robots.
Excerpt: If you have a collection of Buzz! games already then you can mix between general knowledge and just some general playtime with the addition of this title. Or, if you are just after something fun for the family, this would probably do the trick. Forget that it looks like a kid’s game and just play it for what it is, a fun-for-all Buzz! game.
Pros: Builds on the same model all Buzz games have: it's simple, easy to use and great for gatherings of family and friends.
Cons: Instructions for each round need to stay on for a set period before they disappear or can be skipped. People who have played before can easily skip the instructions and have an upper hand during play.
Summary: Buzz! Junior Robojam is a great alternative to the many trivia games that use the Buzz! controllers. Sure the games are simplistic, but that means that anyone from a 4 year old kid, to a 90 year old grandparent can enjoy this game. Recommended.
Excerpt: Po rewelacyjnym Buzz! Junior: Zabawa w dżungli nasze buzzery nie zdążyły się jeszcze zakurzyć, a na półki sklepowe trafiła już druga część serii, czyli Buzz! Junior: Zabawy robotów . To dobrze, bo walenie małp po głowach czy kąpiel z hipopotamem już się znudziły i trochę świeżości z pewnością się przyda. A w tajemnicy powiem, że twórcy już pracują nad kolejną odsłoną, w której pobawimy się… potworami. Póki co „robociki” już są, a co oferują - pokrótce przedstawię.
