Publisher description for Robby

Robby program icon

Robby is a small logic game with original idea and smart interface. In this game you are acting as an engineer of robot programming team. Your goals are to design program for robots and help your robot in completing missions. After your robot completed one level you can start another one. To let your robot go you have to create appropriate cartridge configuration and sometimes control robot's gun. To learn more about programming procedure please see "game rules" section as well as "interface notes" section to learn more about your programming environment. Game rules The game itself contains a sequence of labyrinths (levels). Each labyrinth consists of walls of two types - solid walls and fragile ones. There are a number of items in each labyrinth that are to be collected. After your robot picked up that items, one or more exits to the next level occur. To control your robot movements you need to set up the cartridge. Robot has a very simple logic. Being in a labyrinth, robot in each moment "knows" in which direction it have just moved (to the left, to the right, upwards or downwards) and on which side from it the walls are visible. The program specifies a direction of a further movement in each of these situations. This program looks like a programmable cartridge. Cartridge represents itself a set of 32 arrows. 32 arrows are formed into 4 basic groups; it means that all 4 possible directions for robot moving (left group controls further direction of robot when it moves to the left, upper group controls further direction of upwards current movement, etc.). Each group consists of 8 arrows that show further robot direction; it depends on the arrangement of the walls surrounding the robot. Here are some examples to illustrate this procedure:
