If you haven’t heard about ZeptoLabs, then you probably are just like the rest of us mobile users. However, just like the rest of us, you probably have played their most famous game for mobile, which was Cut The Rope. CTR was easily one of the most popular games of its time, and crossed download records set by previous titles without much issue. It was once on every teenager’s and adult’s phone, as it was considered a great time pass - just like Instagram is now. ZeptoLabs also made CATS, Crash Arena Turbo Stars, which had physics based mechanics, and now the developers are building upon that and are bringing us another fabulous game that might not be as low-maintenance as CTR, but it seems like it definitely be every bit as addicting, as it looks to build upon the foundation laid down by CATS as well. It's rather straightforward in its name, as it's called Robotics!.
The game will have you first make a robot out of spare parts, and then make it learn how to walk using different controls. Once you’ve got that covered, you need to apply those techniques, and make it fight against other battlers in the game. The game might sound and seem simple, but it’s actually harder than you think to fully make your robot a decent fighter.
Max Petro, who is the COO of ZeptoLabs had this to say about his company’s latest game:
“We’re very proud of this project, Robotics! takes the elements that made C.A.T.S. a global success — it's “easy to learn, hard to master” type of gameplay, quick battles, variety of content and a cute art style — and provides them with an extra layer of depth by adding an ability to program your robot’s moves.”
He then talked about how well the game was received by the public:
"The reception seems to be great so far: Robotics! was announced on July 16, and in less than a month got more than 1M pre-registrations. The game’s been in soft launch in key markets for more than a year, and since then we got half a million installs with an average rating of 4.4 on both platforms. Robotics is also boasting a 53% D1 retention and 70% organic user base. We’re excited about the launch and hope that it’s just a start.”
