The second ever IndieDB Spotlight video now will more VO! This month we bring you six of the best Independent releases found on, both retro and modern, action and puzzle. Also let me know what you guys think of the format, I'm more then happy to change things.

July 2010 IndieDB Staff Selection

Robotz DX

Screenshots of the game
(these guys need more screen shots :P)

Robotz DX is an unashamedly old-school, single-screen shoot-em-up with strategic game play. Although simple in concept, it is a difficult game to beat; you will die many times before you master all 30 arenas - and even when you do conquer the game, it's randomly generated level layouts will provide a new challenge on every subsequent play-through.


Till next time mod away my good friends and watch this group for updates.

Nice one. I like the way you do the comments, it's nice to listen to, but I do suggest another microphone...

Keep it up!

For some reason I can't watch this video.
In fact, I can't watch any video from this site today, even though I've watched spotlight videos yesterday just fine.
Seems like player fails to load video properly

Here is a screenshot

Try another browser or watch the video from the "Videos" page of the group. For some reason the embedded player doesn't work with Opera :(

Cool, my game showed up there!

Too bad the short section of music shown was with buffer underrun (I fixed that only yesterday, and I still don't uploaded the version with that fix)

I know I'm going to get flamed for saying this, but, why are you speaking with no emotion? Again, no offense, but your voice is so boring, and it sounds like you just woke up and had to quickly finish the video. Anyways it's a nice recap...I'll have to check out Rebotz DX, it looks sweet.

Yes I was pressed for time this month, otherwise the video would have been out at a more reasonable time. Next month will be better.
