In this 3D Rotoscoped landscape the player controls Rotox the robot, which is required to to eradicate any form of mechanized existence on each of the levels. Each level is comprised of nine sectors, which are not all linked together. At the beginning of each level you drop in from above and get a general overview of the level. Planning a path from sector to sector often involves using moving pathways. The sectors are heavily defended, but weapons can be picked up throughout. When a sector is cleared of robots, the screen flashes and the player is free to move on to the next sector.
Rotox is a fun top-down shoot'em up with decent 3D/bitmap graphics. Your objective: navigate the Cyborg Class 2-A over the platforms while dodging and shooting the deadly machine-enemies. Don't fall off the platforms or the tricky passages; they are sliding through space! What sets the game apart from other top-down shooters is that the landscape is fully rotoscoped, i.e. you can rotate 360 degrees around the polygonal 3D landscape. Quite nice, but the novelty wears out after a while, leaving you with an average shooter with some good ideas, but nothing truly spectacular to draw you in. An okay mixture of pure shooting action, with some skill elements thrown-in. Worth a try, although I doubt few arcade fans will find it fun enough to persevere to finish all nine levels.
