Robotron: 2084 - Cane and Rinse 273

“DUE TO A GENETIC ENGINEERING ERROR, YOU POSSESS SUPERHUMAN POWERS.”

Robotron: 2084 – by Williams’ ‘Vid Kidz’ – may not have been the first twin-stick shoot’em up, but it was perhaps the one that most clearly defined the genre template which would be followed for three and a half decades (and counting). Leon, Michiel and returning guest Dan Clark attempt to understand what makes this most challenging of games so enduringly compelling, and also enjoy a collection of your Three Word Reviews from Twitter (follow us @caneandrinse).

I really enjoyed this one, gents. Probably my favourite of this volume, in fact. Perhaps because I played it so recently, and at an arcade, I really connected with a lot of what you were saying about the sheer physicality of the game. Also, it was one of the most enthusiastic and expressive episodes in a good while, I could sense everyone straining against the measured house style - and in a good way! Obviously a lot of love for this one. Cheers.
