É RoboGol!

Newsfeed 896 via

We have covered a couple of Brazilian made arcade video games in the past, notably Senninha GP and GP Brasil, both racing titles. I also got a look at several arcades when I made a trip down there earlier this year. This new game however fits more in-line with Brazil’s national passion – futebol (aka soccer). Called RoboGol, it’s a robotic amusement game where four players participate in robotic soccer, controlled by joysticks and buttons. It’s fairly similar to MaruBot Football (which we saw at IAAPA and Amusement Expo) but it uses different controls and the robots themselves are of a unique design. It does come down to control with these kinds of games – from what I played of MaruBot it required a few attempts to get used to how the robots would react. From what I read, it appears that the company behind Robogol is trying to distribute the game into other territories in South America but I can’t find a price on the unit.

Here’s a trailer for RoboGol. The second video is from the popular TV program Globo Esporte where they explain the game a little better – it’s a three button configuration and one button kicks, the other two spin the robot quickly in either a clockwise or counter-clockwise direction. The one thing missing from the game is an announcer yelling “GOOOOOOOOOOOLLL!” when a goal is made but I guess they decided to leave that up to the players.

You can find out more by visiting Xbot (creators of the game) or the RoboGol website.
