Robotron: 2084 Arcade Strategy Pt 1

robotronthumbnail

I’m joined with Darrin to bring you a 3-part series about the arcade game Robotron 2084. This first part in the series is an introduction to the game, and general strategy for waves 1-9. Darrin is demonstrating the game on difficulty 5 (default. sometimes MAME defaults to difficulty 3). He has a video on http://www.scoreground.com showing difficulty 10 (max) and reaching 10 million, then he walks away from the machine like a boss (14 minutes of extra men dying follows).

About ArcadeImpossible

Gregg and Mike have known each other for over 20 years, and they've been gaming the whole time. Gregg's first gaming experience was playing Pitfall on the 2600 with his mother at the age of three. Mike's gaming craze started with Mario Bros. on the NES at the age of four. Both of them collect console systems and games too. Arcade collecting began in 2008 when Gregg picked up a Dig Dug machine for a MAME project. Inspired by all of the great gaming channels on Youtube, in May 2012 the guys filmed their first arcade pickup (Galaga). Now they film and pickup one arcade machine a month, and release the episode on the 1st. Gregg is remodeling his basement to resemble an arcade from the 80's, and both hope to have all of the great cabs that they remember from their youth. Gregg: Favorite Arcades: Donkey Kong, Donkey Kong Jr., Smash TV, Ms. Pac-man Favorite Systems: Atari 2600, NES Favorite Games: Resident Evil Series, Heavy Rain, Final Fantasy 3 Mike: Favorite Arcades: Galaga, Blasteroids, Break Thru Favorite Systems: NES, SNES, PSX Favorite Games: Super Metroid, Twisted Metal 2, SkyShark

    This game is so freaking hard. Great guest to have on Gregg, and I loved how you edited it all together. Nice work, and I look forward to the other two parts.

      Thanks John. It is one of my “grail” games now for sure. We recently went and got a deal on a few games, but for our 20th machine I’m holding out for a perfect Robotron. I can’t wait!
