Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that 3bot is a sci-fi puzzle game that plays like a 3-D version of Q*bert. The goal is to guide the 3bot across the surfaces of three-dimensional structures to light them up without retracing your steps. A combination of strategy and timing is required to achieve a good score, but the game allows players to progress at their own pace. The game offers 45 levels with no objectionable content, although users who opt in to OpenFeint face privacy and safety risks with the open chat function.
Is it any good?
With its distinctive 1950s sci-fi theme, 3BOT is stylish to look at as well as fun to play. The game is forgiving of mistakes and lets players move on to the next level regardless of how well they did, which cuts down on the frustration for players with less-developed motor skills. Players prone to motion sickness might experience a little vertigo from the rotating 3-D objects.
