Despite crude graphics, bad title screen music and challenging controls, Robomaze II is a fondly remembered platformer. You are a freedom fighter in a country dominated by two massive structures known as The Tower and The Dome. Using the special "Stalker Robot", you enter The Tower through a tunnel created by The Resistance, and must fight your way through 5 levels of 20 floors each. A powerful boss robot occupies the top level of each floor. There are keys to open doors, teleporters that only you can use, and teleporters that drop enemies into the room. You have an unlimited amount of ammunition with your basic weapon, but better weapons can be picked up from time to time. You can also use money that you find throughout the game to buy skills that you need at any time, such as the ability to temporarily super jump, or just zap everything in the room. Speed can be increased or decreased with the + and - buttons, but the three speeds seem to be designed for, say, XT, AT and 286 computers, so they will tend to be too fast or too slow when emulating on a modern computer. You can save your game at any time, but you can only continue every 5 levels, so if you save on level 4, you'll continue from level 1! There are 3 volumes in this game, with only the first volume playable in the shareware version.
Volume 1: The Lobby
Volume 2: The Tower
Volume 3: The Penthouse
