Glitch? (Edit)

Made it to the numbers galaxy but I can’t do anything. It shows me roped to a silver and red robot and there isn’t a level to play. Deleted app and redownloaded everything is working fine now

Thank you for reporting the bug, we appreciate it and glad you were able to fix via downloading. We will see if we can replicate the bug and squish it.


It’s ok

I like this game, it’s a good idea. But sometimes it seems literally impossible to complete a level because the colors are no where near other same colors. Also I hate that a move that doesn’t make a match counts as a move. There are few moves to begin with. And few lives. I can only play a couple levels at a time, having to replay each at least once so I’m only on level 8. The option to choose to watch an ad & then getting told I can pay 2$ to not is annoying. Why give people the option? Ads that just play are less annoying than that. Good idea, poor execution.

Thank you for your great feedback and for giving Robots Go Home! a try :O)
The levels are designed to go up and down in difficulty as we cater for different skill levels. Sometimes it requires a thinking a few moves ahead to get a robot (color) in the right position. Think of it like a matching game meets checkers, it needs a bit of strategy and every move counts!

We've balanced the number of ads shown, so you'll see fewer ads when replaying the same level. We've allowed many of the adverts to be skipped early once started. However, we'll take on board the wording for the advert screen and see if we can improve it :O)

I immediately delete any game that forces me to wait on “lives” after failing a level so many times. These match 3 type games literally have 100’s of levels. As if failing a hard level 5 times isn’t enough you must then wait 2 and 1/2 hours just to lose 5 more times. I hate this model.
