Idea #14142: Replace Robots Game with Frozen-Bubble
Help promote this idea!
the 6 Oct 08 at 19:36. Related project:
This is some of the result of my findings on converting my housemates to Ubuntu:
"This Robots game really sucks!"
"Yeah.. it does. Here, try Frozen-Bubble."
"This is like crack!"
In short, Robots isn't fun and looks like it was made by a high schooler and Frozen-Bubble is addicting and looks professional.
It's amazing how much time people spend on the default games that come with a computer, so please replace the lame no-fun stinker with the best F/OSS puzzle game out there.

Just an issue, robots is part of the package Gnome-Games or something like that. If you remove robots, also remove all the other games, so I think is best idea to include Frozen as default.

"This is like crack!" lol

Any other crack users willing to try Frozen-Bubble and compare the two?
wrote on the 7 Oct 08 at 01:09
Robots is stupid, but some of the other gnome-games programs are essential to my survival (Mahjongg and Tetravex, in particular).

Robots is like crack to my kids. Keep it.

I love robots.
There is no reason to remove it for frozen bubble.
Frozen bubble is a great game, but really, -1 because robots should stay.
wrote on the 7 Oct 08 at 01:36
(I mean, frozen bubble can easily be added without having to remove robots)

I don't get robots...
The game doesn't really make sense (I get how to play, but where's the skill?)
Although my and a friend laughed for a few minutes when we got to the first "Yahoo!!"

I would actually support switching it out with Monkey Bubbles, because it is more integrated with GNOME.

Robots its great! there is another game like robots called pirates! but you must pay for play... so.. i keep installed robot ^^

Unfortunately, Frozen Bubble has many dependencies and it is itself 30+MB, So it wouldn't fit in live-cd.
But on live-dvd or some live-flash images (if they will exist) it may be good idea... But Robots are also good and almost weightless.

I spend a lot of hours playing Frozen Bubble in my school days and I love this game.

I love playing robots. I would hate if they removed it.
