I have fans!

This really is great news. I know that a lot of people around the world enjoy playing my games but every now and then I hear from people who seem to have got that little bit more out of a game than most.

I recently got a message from someone who must surely be The Legend of the Golden Robot’s biggest fan. He has reached level 218, killing 5,161 monsters along the way and plans to keep playing until he reaches level 300! That is some serious dedication! If anyone else out there claims to be a bigger fan I’d love to hear from you.

Then the other day I got a message from someone who said he had written a song about Hambo. I wasn’t too sure if he was pulling my leg or not but sure enough this morning I received an email with a link to Hambo Power Song II. Listen to the song here. Mr. Gee has written a whole load of crazy songs that can also be found on that site. Some of them are already game names in themselves so I might just have to see if we can use one for a future game…

The Legend of the Golden Robot

This game actually started development before Toxers but I didn’t get involved in the project until later. RobotJAM had started the game himself but it was too big a project for one person really so I stepped in to help out.

The basic idea of the game is an RPG where you play as an Indiana Jones style treasure hunter, Indigo Steve. The gameplay consists of fighting enemies and digging up treasures using a similar system to the classic minesweeper game. There’s also an inn where you can play mini-games, a shop where you can buy better gear, and a levelling up system so that you can improve your stats.

Fighting is turn based and we tried to keep it simple while still maintaining an element of strategy. To mix things up a bit we put some ‘special items’ in that can only be found by digging them up which have different effects. We also put some buddies in which are little animals that fight for you, giving you a bonus effect. Buddies can be found fighting for mini bosses so you have to defeat them before they will join your cause.

The Golden Robot will join your side if you can find him and is the only way to defeat the evil wizard. He has been dismantled and is buried in five pieces.

I hope you enjoy playing!

Update:
If you want to find out more about how we made Golden Robot then there’s a lovely article all about it here.
