Louis Bedigian writes "In the real world robots are used to make our jobs more efficient. In the world of entertainment they're used to obliterate anything that moves in a battle to save mankind. Star Wars made them cool, Terminator made them tough, and Robocalypse – a new RTS designed exclusively for Nintendo DS – makes them an unstoppable army while being tame enough to achieve an E (10+) rating.
Robocalypse begins when a group of extremely polite killer robots (who knew there was such a thing?) invade the world, supposedly because of a freak accident at a local lab. To eliminate this evil-but-well-mannered threat, an old professor, a dumb blonde and a geek with glasses turn to the only defense they have: three retired veterans. They're old, clueless and are about to become guinea pigs for a device the geek developed. Using a brain pattern scanner to mimic the veterans' former skills, new robots are created to combat the enemy."
