RoboZone is an action platform game with lost of shooting, released in 1991 for the Commodore Amiga, Atari ST/E, Amstrad CPC, Commodore C64/128, PC (MS-DOS) and Sinclair ZX Spectrum by ImageWorks.
The game's story takes place in New York, 2067 AD. Mankind has been forced to abandon the polluted cities of the world leaving behind their only guardians, the Wolverines. One by one, the Wolverines were destroyed by the ruthless Scavengers until finally one remained. It's your task to battle to the heart of the Scavengers' lair and destroy them before it's too late. The game is split into three levels and each is implemented differently. The first level is a multi-directional scrolling platform shooter inside tunnels (of a maze), in which you must fight your way through and find the exit to the streets. The second is a 3D scrolling blast section requiring fast reactions inside a 3D scavenger-infested labyrinth. The last is a horizontally scrolling shooter, time-limited, side-viewed section as you close in to destroy the pollution emitter. It is a quite difficult game to play and, honestly, you'll be lucky if you reach the second level, as you will suffer from a severe perseverance from the enemies that keep re-spawning and from the dangerous pits that you'll fall into!

The graphics on the Atari ST version are good, with large sprites but rather repetitive backdrops. We would expect better results in terms of variety, especially when ImageWorks offered several state-of-the-art games (The Killing Cloud, Mega-lo-mania etc) for the 16bit home computers. All screens are limited to the standard ST color palette (16 simultaneous colors, in comparison to the 32-colored screens of the Amiga) but still is giving a nice feeling of a ruined city somewhere in the future. The sprites move fast and smooth and show no particular problems with or without the Blitter chip (STE) except of some slowdowns at the stage running in 3D perspective (Level 2). Level 2 is quite impressive and spices up the action. Unfortunately the impressive Amiga introductory sequence is missing.
The game's sound is decent featuring a cool intro theme and a few catchy in-game tunes but no simultaneous sound effects. You can select either music or sound effects at the main menu.

On our video below you can watch both the Atari ST and Amiga versions of the game.
