Silly game evolution - Which is not unduly obvious, as I am about to explain
Silly game evolution
In the beginning, there was The Oregon Trail. (more info here.)

Later on, there came the Thule Trail.
Then someone said, F*** Oregon, let's go find El Dorado! And admittedly it had design flaws. But may later be re-released with much more silliness.
Next thing you know, a movie was announced. ("We might learn a thing or two!" "You won't learn anything.")
But wait! you say. What about ZOMBIES? Zombies? You want zombies? Well then! What you want is the Organ Trail!

Maybe these games... aren't for you.
Maybe you like cats. And robots. Therefore, Robot wants kitty.
Admittedly, this is a very simple, not especially challenging game. But it's been getting progressively better. Robot wants... Puppy. Fishy! ICE CREAM!

Robots is pretty fun - low on the frustration scale, however not being able to save games is pretty much a buzz kill.

I don't know about the first game in the series, but I think for the later ones, the in-game save points allow you to go back and continue your game later where you left off, unless you've throttled your flash privacy settings to avoid saving game data.

I've played all Robot games, and it doesn't matter - as long as your flash settings are okay, you can close the tab/window, come back later, and hit "continue" - and respawn at your last save point, of which there are many.
