Description: The object of the game is to save the last human family (although it seems they had a really big family) and kill anything or anyone who gets in your way. Two joysticks are used for play control; one for movement and the other for firing. The enemies in the game are called Robotrons and there are five different kinds of them: Grunts, Brains, Enforcers, Tanks and Hulks. There are also three different kinds of human family members who must be rescued including women in pink dresses, men in blue suits and boys in red shirts.

" Since this came out in '82, I never understood why they didn't just call this game Robotron: 2082...But rather than go 100 years into the future for the title, they had to get all fancy and add two more years. But anyway, this title never really got the love that Pac-Man, Donkey Kong, or even Q*Bert got, but it did inspire Geometry Wars, which in turn inspired waaaaaay too many low-quality iPhone games with similar gameplay...So we've gotta give it credit for that, right? RUNNERS-UP: Pitfall"

"A dual-joystick control scheme was developed for Robotron (1982) to provide the player with more precise controls. Most modern video game systems employ a dual-stick design. Other games, such as Inferno, Smash TV, Total Carnage, Geometry Wars, Everyday Shooter, and Super Stardust HD, all borrow the basic gameplay elements."

"Arcade - 1982 "Robotron is the id of arcade gaming--all impulse and instinct and reflex. If you take the time to wait for conscious thought to move from your brain to your hands, you're dead--simple as that. It's just so pure...probably why it still holds up and will likely never feel dated.""
