Born as a joke, Robot Unicorn Attack has turned quickly into a real success story in the mobile sector, with a first chapter that brought on smartphones the eponymous flash game feeling and a second which effectively expanded and improved the formula while maintaining the ironic tone and the look inspired by the trashy science fiction of the 80 typical of the original. By the third episode it would have been reasonable to expect a step further, perhaps accompanied by some original insight that rimescolasse a little ‘cards : instead, Robot Unicorn Attack 3 ends to recline on itself, reinventing one humor begins to do some ‘mold and especially gameplay that does not seem to be in step with the times.

Whether it is ignorance on the part of developers or a gigantic Adult Swim joke designed to emphasize the emptiness mobile today’s gaming, it matters little: Robot Unicorn Attack 3 is a product of many (too many) talk and very little substance, that pales in confrontation with members of the genus are able to tackle the subject more seriously even managing to propose something new.
