Talk:robots (computer game)
|WikiProject Video games||(Rated Start-class, Low-importance)|
I would really like to know who invented the first Robots game. If anyone can add this information or suggest a place where I could find it, that would be wonderful. It occurs to me that some versions of the Robots game could have credits with them, but none that are immediately accessible to me do.
- I'm guessing that Robotron: 2084 and all of its many clones were originally inspired by Robots. Drutt 21:27, 8 March 2007 (UTC)
- I based my version on a Pascal implementation from 1981, shown here. JMatthews (talk) 10:47, 21 May 2008 (UTC)
- I also remember a version from an old Apple my father used to own... —porges(talk) 09:41, 28 November 2009 (UTC)
Playable version online
- I have to say - the game is awesome. I play it all the time, and I think it belongs in external links. I'll add it in. It works great in Firefox, btw. --FeldBum (talk) 12:39, 18 December 2007 (UTC)
- I agree. I changed the entry only to match the other cross-platform versions. JMatthews (talk) 10:47, 21 May 2008 (UTC)
Fair use rationale for Image:Robots text screenshot.png
Image:Robots text screenshot.png is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.
Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.
If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

Proposed change to the relevant guideline
In the light of the above RM, I've started a discussion on the talk page of the guideline we decided to ignore.  Please comment at Wikipedia talk:Naming conventions (video games)#Use of (computer game) as a disambiguator. Andrewa (talk) 08:36, 19 September 2015 (UTC)
