CoLoBot CoLoBot (Colonise With Bots) is an educational programming game with a third-person view. It includes missions on different planets, many useful machines, helpful robots and angry aliens.

Your mission is to use your robots for successful expeditions on other planets. You will have to search for the raw materials and energy you need in order to survive. You can build robots and machines from raw material.

Your robots can be controlled directly, but it's a better idea to program them. In a simple programming language similar to C++, you can write a program for the robot that it will then perform automatically, allowing you to sit back and watch as it collects materials and fights enemies.

Most of the planets you'll be visiting are crowded with primitive and insect-like lifeforms. You may be forced into fighting them if you want to stay alive. [source:mobygames]
