Robot Rising is actually a Facebook-bound ARPG, featuring robots. But do they rise at all? Well, maybe a little bit, but mostly they kill other robots on a
2D 3D plane. Not much rising involved there. But anyway, even if you think social games are at an “evolutionary dead end” there’s still a glimmer of hope in the likes of the Robot Rising devs, Stomp Games, saying that they believe Facebook needs “core” games for more traditional gamers. Perhaps it does. And ARPGs might be a step in the right direction for that. Gunshine wasn’t too bad, either.
