In a fictional world of the future the infamous super villain Dr. Lacroix schemes to seize world supremacy with his army of robots. You take the role of Nikki and try to cross those evil plans on behalf of a secret organization. Your quest will take you to various locations: from futuristic metropolises to submarine facilities, floating islands, and even as far as orbital space.

Nikki and the Robots renders homage to the classical platform games of the eighties and nineties, while at the same time realizing a unique gameplay idea. The main character Nikki refrains from using any weapons or equipment during the whole quest, and can only jump and run around the levels. However, it is possible to hack into Dr. Lacroix's various robots and to take control of them via computer terminals. The nifty use of the robots and the combination of their characteristic special abilities enable Nikki to solve puzzles, overcome obstacles, and complete the level tasks.

The Story Episodes of "Nikki and the Robots" are now available!

Hey there! This is Flo from Joyride Laboratories and behalf of the studio I would like to welcome everybody to the new IndieDB page for Nikki and the Robots! Our presentation here is still a little rough around the edges, but we are working on it...

We have been developing Nikki and the Robots for just about one year and anticipate a release in 2010. We will soon be able to show you our first trailer. Also, we would like to invite you to our website and to our development blog!

Best wishes, Flo
