Robbery Bob 2: Double Trouble Game Review
The first release of Robbery Bob was well received by critics and fans. It was the perfect follow up to the hit original, Robbery Bob. In fact, this game was so well received that it spawned a sequel right before the original’s release. Now we are dealing with the second Robbery Bob 2: Double Trouble. This time around, we are getting a follow up to the original game, featuring all new story elements and gameplay.
The premise of Robbery Bob 2: Double Trouble is exactly the same as its predecessor. You play as either a male or female robin (yes, even luckless burglars). You have to rescue the damsel in distress and go on the crime spree to make some fast bucks. The first part of the game is basically just your standard robbers vs. cops scenario. But as you progress through the level, you will also encounter two new characters, namely; a princess and a cowboy, and you also get to explore other cities like Vegas and Muscle Park.
The story revolves around a certain blue blur who can change into different people depending on what he wants. He then kidnapped the first lady of Muscle Park (you play as her uncle) and took over her restaurant. But thanks to your rescuing the restaurant owner, she has enough knowledge about the Robbery Bob character to alert the police. The two forces try to apprehend Robbery Bob, but they soon realize that his powers are beyond their reach. They soon learn that he has also captured the true king of crime, “The Crime Lord,” a very dangerous guy who will do anything and everything for money. With this information at hand, you must save the damsel and get back to town to thwart the Crime Lord once and for all.
Some of the more interesting ideas in Robbery Bob 2: Double Trouble include several time-based challenges, such as trying to save a boy from a burning building or preventing an attempted robbery by a bunch of heavily armed security guards armed with machine guns. In addition, you get to learn about the real nature of robbery and the old-fashioned values that make people who live in this world a little scared sometimes. The developers have incorporated a variety of different elements from the first game in this sequel, which gives each level an authenticity that makes it feel like the game is telling a true story. Even though the storyline is just as engaging, you will still have to work your way through some of the same stages that you’ve already seen before.
One of the biggest advantages that you get with the second game in this Robbery Bob franchise is the inclusion of hidden items and other features that you can only obtain after completing part of the story. This helps you advance through the levels faster and allows you to get rewarded through these little extras. You also get the chance to try out all of the new secrets that the developers left out of the original game and to take on more difficult versions of some of the challenges that are featured.
However, despite all the improvements that you find in this game, one thing that people criticizing it tend to forget is the fact that it’s simply a port of the first game. Don’t let the similarity between the two trailers and the first game fool you – the second game in Robbery Bob 2: Double Trouble is as much a faithful representation of the first as any other platform game could be. If anything, the game is just as hard, if not harder than the original. The goal remains the same, and you’ll have to find all the hidden items and other secrets throughout the game to complete the game.
Critics seem to think that the lack of any kind of multiplayer feature may be a turnoff for some players. Fortunately, developer Crave Entertainment has addressed this criticism by including a single player mode in the game. This single player game is available only to those who bought the original Robbery Bob: Collector’s Edition. If you’re familiar with the first game, you will have no trouble understanding this new mode – the game does a great job of recreating the magic of the first release while introducing new challenges that are harder and will challenge even the most seasoned of gamers.
If you like your old games, you’ll love this one. It’s definitely not as tough as the original but it’s still challenging enough to give you that sense of accomplishment when you finally get your prize and complete all the levels. Many people who played the original version thought that there were far too many bugs and glitches to be happy with the game – they thought that there were too many areas to explore and too many items to collect in the game. However, this version improves upon almost all the complaints that had been raised about the game, and in fact makes the game a lot more fun to play than ever before.
