Developer: Iuri Fiedoruk

At first glance, the game doesn’t look too bad. Only when you start playing, you’ll realize how shallow it is. Most stages are littered with Mets, Shield Attackers and Tellies, including the late game levels as well. You’ve essentially seen the whole game after beating two levels.
That is not the main problem with this game, however. Rockbot was originally distributed via the Google Play Store, but got removed due to having copyrighted content in the game. The developer blamed this on “trolls” via his website. At the time of this review, the website is full of hostile blaming towards people who got the game banned from the app store. These people are right, however. Copyrighted material from Nintendo, Capcom, HAL etc. can be found in the game. This is enough reason for its removal. Play Store or not, Nintendo doesn’t look kindly on stolen assets.
The developer encourages people to tell him if they find any copyrighted material in the game so he can remove them. That’s right, it’s now your job to let the developer know. Only problem, there is almost no original art in the entire game. In my opinion, Rockbot is one of the worst examples of a fan game today. Why even bother if almost none of the material is yours?
The attitude towards reviewers and critics of Rockbot, urges me to tell other players to not get involved with its upcoming sequel, Rockbot 2. Anyone attempting to provide any criticism and/or feedback for this game should be warned as it may be misconstrued and/or misinterpreted.

I played this game 2 years ago and already watching your review brings back some bad memories of this game and the creator’s attitude towards those who criticise or report his game for copyright. To say the least, levels go on for WAY too long and have nothing to amount to or show apart from stolen or crapilly assets. And speaking of…

Everything here except the player sprite, boss sprites and some enemy sprites are stolen or badly drawn and I don’t think people should be able to this crap online.

This only reason I’m giving it a 0.4 is because some things in the game are competently made and with some effort put into them.

For a game which is inspired by Megaman, this game is very very underwhelming. The levels in this game are just platforms after platforms after platforms without any clever use of gimmick and when there’s any, it’s from some of the level design which is directly copied from other Megaman games. There’s no challenge whatsoever that could make me think to solve the puzzle, add that with armor upgrades that make this game a complete cakewalk. Most enemies here only move left and right, and the others don’t have much variety. Everywhere you go, that’s just it. There’s nothing really interesting from beginning to the end. Unoriginal and unfun are two words I can use to sum this game up.

If there’s something good I can say for this game, it doesn’t make me want to punch my monitor out of sheer frustration, and the music is better than the previous version.
