Coming soon in 2011, is a new game for a new app platform. Maze Racing Robots, developed by Abstract Worlds Ltd, is a downloadable game app for Samsung Internet@TV, the internet ready app platform included in many recent Samsung TVs and Blu-ray players.
Watch robots race against each other to solve the mazes, or race against a robot yourself. This game features replayability, randomly generated maze levels, both interactive and sit back and watch game modes, 3D graphics and animations, and robot artificial intelligence, all in an app just over 1MB in size!
When sitting back and watching the robots race, guess (individually or as a group) which robot will win. If you are studying form, the left robot tends to turn left, and the right robot tends to turn right, this can help you make a more informed decision based on the maze designs for the current race.
When racing against a robot, you control the robot on the left using the Up, Down, Left, Right and Enter (to stop) buttons on your remote control. The Return button brings back the menu.
But don't forget, there is plenty of fun to be had just sitting back and watching the robots race. After all, plenty of people watch horse racing, whereas not all of those people want to be jockeys!
Mazes are randomly generated to provide an almost limitless variety of mazes. Robot AI (Artificial Intelligence) helps the robots solve the mazes.
Features replayability, both "sit back and enjoy" and interactive game modes, 3D graphics and animations, randomly generated maze levels and robot artificial intelligence.
