Robot Master is an easy to learn puzzle game from the mind of award-winning game designer, Dr. Reiner Knizia.
How does it play? Take turns placing numbered cards down on a 5 x 5 grid to score lines both vertically and horizontally. The scores for each line are determined by the sum of the cards. Here’s an example:
(1 + 2 + 4 + 5 + 0) would score 12 points.
Sounds easy, right? Well, here’s a couple of twists:
First, pairs of cards anywhere in the line count 10x their face value. Here’s an example:
(1 + 2 + 4 + 2 + 0) would score 25 points.
Second, triple cards anywhere in the line count 100 points regardless of face value. Here’s an example:
(0 + 1 + 2 + 0 + 0) would score 103 points.
That’s all there is to it but remember that your final score is only your lowest scoring line, and you want the highest score possible!
So build evenly and don’t neglect weak lines…
* Solo play: compete against players from around the world as you strive to be the best on the online High Score table!
* Versus play: challenge a friend (Pass’n Play) or the AI to go head to head. This time, one player takes the columns, and the other takes the rows. The player with the lowest scoring line loses!
* Not feeling our music? Play your own and still enjoy the game’s sound effects.
Please be sure you’re running firmware version 2.2 or higher on your iPhone or iPod Touch. For best results, please reboot your device before playing Robot Master.
For 1 to 2 players.
