Are you noticing more apps and games from iOS and Android making their way to Windows Phone? Here’s another one. Girls Like Robots is a puzzle game about seating arrangements. The goal is to make everyone happy by seating them next to their friends.
You can’t please everybody all the time, so it can be challenging. Head past the break to watch our hands on video and walkthrough.
The logic is simple. To pass a level, you need to keep everyone happy. You have to keep a few things in mind. Girls like robots, but dislike nerds. Robots like girls, but can’t handle being surrounded by 4 of them. Nerds like girls, robots, and edges, but don’t like sitting next to other nerds. The game does a great job explaining the likes and dislikes when introducing new characters.
It all starts easily, but new and surprising elements get introduced as you play. While still taking care of the likes and dislikes of everyone, you may need to leave one seat open or deal with characters that are constantly moving around. Some levels also require you to push bugs towards a student that likes them.
The happiness meter on the left side of the screen has three levels. At the end of each stage, you get tokens depending on how high the happiness meter has reached. The heart button on the lower right corner shows the general relationships between the characters on the grid. If you need to be reminded of their likes and dislikes, just double-tap or press and hold a character.
Girls Like Robots offers over 100 puzzles to solve and includes a storyline to make it more interesting. Another feature is the Face-a-mizer which lets you customize the characters.
You can download Girls Like Robots from the Windows Phone Store for $2.99. There’s also a free trial available. If you have room for another puzzle game, definitely check it out.
