Robotron 64 (USA)

Robotron 64 is a 1998 multidirectional shooter for the Nintendo 64. It is a port of Robotron X, which itself is an updated version of the 1982 dual-stick shooter Robotron: 2084. The game was originally scheduled to be released by Midway Games in the summer of 1997,[2] but the game was put on hiatus before it would see a new publisher and a release date of January 5, 1998.[3]

Plot

The player is a mutant scientist trapped in another dimension trying to save the last human family. His mutant powers allow him to defeat the evil robots that are trying to kill all of humanity.

Gameplay

Robotron 64 uses the dual-stick control scheme of the original Robotron. The player can either play with two controls or with one controller using the C-buttons to shoot.

The soundtrack consists of electronica and techno music.

Reviews for Robotron 64 were mostly positive, though many critics questioned whether the game ultimately offered anything over the original Robotron 2084. Dan Hsu proclaimed in Electronic Gaming Monthly, “Finally, a good update of Robotron! This version fixes all of the problems that plagued the PS version. R64 is fast, frantic and sure as hell hard to put down.”[5] Nintendo Power likewise described it as “just as fast and wild” as Robotron 2084, while having upgraded graphics.[12] Next Generation was more measured in its praise: “Add to that new bosses and power-ups, hundreds of levels, and a decent non-stop techno soundtrack, and this tiny 4MB cart stands as proof that size isn’t everything – it’s what you do with it that counts. It still may not improve on the original, but it’s much better than expected.”[11] On the negative end of the spectrum, Hsu’s co-reviewer Sushi-X criticized the low difficulty and the lack of the full-screen overhead view of Robotron 2084 and summed up Robotron 64 as “one last attempt at reviving a game that seems better left to fond memories.”[5] Jeff Gerstmann, reviewing the game for GameSpot, also felt it was too easy and concluded it “simply isn’t up to snuff. You’d be better off playing the original Robotron 2084.”[7] The game holds 72/100 on the review aggregation website Metacritic based on six reviews.[4]
