Robotek makes the move from Windows 8 to Windows Phone

If you have a Windows 8 /RT device chances are you’ve seen a game called Robotek in the Windows Store. It is personally one of my favorite games to play on my Surface, so I was happy to hear it has been ported over to Windows Phone. One of the nice things about Windows and Windows Phone sharing a kernel is that it’s very easy for developers to make one game for both platforms. Robotek, by Hexage, is the latest to take this approach.

Robotek is a unique game that blends many genres. At its core it is a strategy game. You are matched up against an opponent, one-on-one, and you have a plethora of actions you can take to defeat the enemy. Each move you get to take a turn on a slot machine to choose between reinforcements, defense, or attack. When you spin you are rewarded with whatever results. Get three of a kind and you earn another spin. Defeat the enemy by draining their power bar. To win the game you must defeat all enemies on a map, enemies range in difficulty. Full list of features below:

  • Unique blend of strategy, action and RPG.
  • More than 200 levels spread all around the world.
  • Rewarding skill system with more than 30 levels.
  • 9 upgradable slot symbols to fit your own style of play.
  • 4 special abilities including the devastating Nuke.
  • Play thrilling hotseat duels with your friends!
  • Online hall of fame – Your scores can only grow.
  • Signature sound by Kubatko

Robotek is a very fun and addicting game. It takes a lot of strategy to decide what type of move you want to take. Sometimes it pays to be aggresive, other times it pays to be safe. The choice is yours. Robotek is free to download.

    I have played this game on Android before. Never got far, though. There are better strategy games out there.
