The Adventures of Robby Roto! (Robby Roto for short) is a 1981 arcade game produced by Bally/Midway.

It is one of the few games made available to legally download on the official website of MAME, a video game emulator.


Robby Roto was unsuccessful, selling less than 2,000 units and much less popular than 1982's Dig Dug. Its developer claimed with David Nutting "it was a very complex game and those who played it found themselves on the defensive — most were intimidated. Gamers like to be aggressive."[1]
