C-Bot Puzzle – jump, dash, invert, shoot & explore this cool platform puzzler
Apr 10, 2013 11:33 AM –
C-Bot Puzzle is an exciting and enjoyable platformer that sees you guide a lonely robot through a series of levels. Each level gives C-Bot certain powers (such as jump, shoot, gravity reverse) and these must be used correctly and often in the right order to progress. On that basis the game blends Cordy gameplay with something altogether more strategic and logically demanding.
Price: Free or $1.99 for the paid version
Tested on: Nexus 4
Pros & Cons:
- Beautifully smooth graphics!
- Good sound!
- Immersive and challenging gameplay!
- Lots of levels!
- Objectives could be a little clearer.
C-Bot Puzzle is a cool little game that sees you moving a cute robot through 45 levels of puzzling fun. Essentially, there are a number of powers the robot can possess at different times which are represented by coloured orbs. When the robot goes through such an orb, he attains that power until either it is used or another one is attained. The ‘puzzle’ element of the game is to use the powers at the right time to complete the level.
For example, you will need to use the shoot power to open certain doors. Therefore you have to ensure that the shooting power is equipped when you get to the door. There are more navigational powers too, such as invert (reverse-gravity), jump and dash. You’ll need to effectively combine these to complete each level. This becomes more challenging with the complexity of the levels, plus the requirement to collect bonus jigsaw pieces as you progress.
I think the game suffers a little by not being more specific with its objectives. You can complete a level very quickly but only earn one star, so you are left unsure whether completing levels at speed is the right thing to do. This doesn’t stop C-Bot Puzzle from being a potentially great game, but it does leave you scratching your head a bit.
The game reminded me of a mash-up between Cordy and SpaceCat 3D, albeit with an added puzzle element. If you enjoy platformers that make you think, this is definitely a game you’ll want to try. Check out the video below for a demo…

The game merges fun platformer gameplay; explore, shoot, find and explore some more… with the puzzle factor; logically having to use the powers at the right time and blending them for effective level completion. If you enjoy either kind of game, be sure to try this out.
I think once you get the hang of the game it can be very addictive. There are some 45 stages to complete in the full version, plus bonus content to unlock in addition to many achievements to complete.
The graphics are neat; smooth, colourful and nicely detailed- rendered in smooth 3D with subtle perspective shifts.
Accelerometer, Vibration & Sound:
The sound in the game is very good, without being amazing. It works well and adds some immersion but there are better examples elsewhere. That said, it works perfectly with this type of game.
