At its heart, Robot Rescue is a cheap and cheerful DSiWare game that looks to steal your attention and make your brain ache with its catchy, old-school music, cute visual touches and interesting flourishes. As with all the best puzzle games, it offers a simple control scheme, with gameplay that is easy to learn, but difficult to master.
Using the D-pad you control robots who must escape from a computer, all at the same time. As the levels get steadily harder, you must think multiple moves ahead, with new gameplay ideas being introduced the entire time; glue, traps, conveyor belts, to name a few. There are 40 levels to beat, which should keep you going for a while, and for the price range it is at, it is a very commendable game. However, it feels like the gameplay has not been fully explored, as so many other ideas may have been used. The touchscreen is dubiously used to control aspects of the menu, while the A button is used for others. However, these are only little niggles and the game as a whole is great!
Overall, this is a nice little game that could be a lot more. I lot forward to reviewing Robot Rescue 2
