Robot Odyssey – David Auerbach discusses the game that took him thirteen years to finish and which started him on the road to becoming a software engineer.
In Robot Odyssey, you played a character who has fallen into the labyrinthine underground city of Robotropolis. You start in the sewers of the city with three programmable robots to help you solve the puzzles you face – Sparky, Scanner, and Checkers. You must make your way up through the subway, town, master control center and skyways to get back home. Along the way the game teaches the basic concepts of electrical engineering and digital logic.
