They released several games, mainly for the BBC Micro and Electron computers from Acorn. Though ports for some of their games were made for the Archimedes, Amstrad and Commodore 64. The games were famous throughout the Acorn world for having large amounts of text squeezed into the tiny memory (32K) of the BBC Micro and Election.
The Engine used by the games seems to use a standard database for objects and descriptions but used hard coded 6502 machine code to perform actions.
Robico released the following games:
- Saga of a Spy Trilogy:
- Realm of Chaos Trilogy (only the first part was released):
- The Hunt - The Search for Shauna (Ian Muriss; 1987).
