    A well made port of the game. I especially like the PET-mode it offers. As running the PET-version in VICE is a bit more of a hassle to start I like it to be able to play it under ZX Spin very easily. The GFX-mode adds some more detailed (non PETSCII-) elements to the game. The two “micro” modes I found interesting to see but almost unplayable as they are extremely zoomed out. This way they show you more from the game world then you are supposed to see so I also regard it as a bit of a “spoiler”. Anyway, a good port overall.

    This is an excellent port, all elements are there, it looks very good (I really like the Color Bots version) and the beeper tunes are just mindblowing. Still, gameplay is the main attraction here, and PETSCII Robots really delivers, it’s very easy to get into and play (the keyboard layout works like a charm) but a challenge to beat. A minute to learn, a lifetime to master, that’s how I like my games! Highly recommended
