It’s rare that a video game will come out of the wood works and really offer up something new, different, original and unique. Moonpod, however, has managed to do just that with the release of their new title, Mr. Robot. Yeah okay, so the name is strikingly poised to go platinum, but that doesn't mean the gameplay isn't.
Moonpod recently made the announcement about the release of their highly anticipated casual, RPG adventure game. It’s somewhat of an interesting take on something you might expect from the literary works of Isaac Asimov. A more accurate description of the game comes from the press release, which reads... ”Mr. Robot is a 3D action-puzzle-adventure-rpg. Inspired by classic filmation games such as Knight Lore and Alien8 and mixed with'Ghost Hack' - an abstract RPG in which the player hacks into computer terminals and battles defensive computer programs. Featuring over 200 rooms, more than 20 different enemies, 7 friendly robots to aid in your quest, numerous medals to unlock and a built in editor so you can create your own adventures.”
The visual aspects of the game are actually pretty snazzy, insofar that the 3D models kind of look like toys. Special effects and battle sequences play out rather spectacularly as well, which should keep graphic-hungry gamers fairly entertained. Actual gameplay is a bit of a throwback to classic Japanese RPGs when battling in an alternate mode called “Ghost Hacking”. It’s a really cool concept and a great design that many developers aught to echo when it comes to originality. Maybe in the next-generation of gaming, eh?
