I loved Dr. Robotnix when I had it years ago. My husband surprised me and bought the last Sega Genesis systems before they retired, and this game. Double surprise. This game is reminiscent of a "tetris" high. It plays as well as a two player competetion or as a solo-player. This is like Tetris but with some huge differences. Like Tetris where you stack same color in order to cause peices to collaspe, Dr. Robotnix uses colored bean like peices. You can be very imanginive in how you set up stacks and this is where alot of the fun comes in. You, or your opponent causes boulders to be droppped on the other player when collasping a stack of beans-the more combos you have set up the more boulders! In single player mode, after each level you are given a code so you don't have to start over from the beginning. The levels are from easy to very hard with each "boss" having a different style of game play to keep from being tedious. Each level is more challenging and faster drawing you back for more competive play. The colors are bright and characters creative with characters getting mad if you win.

Makes a good friendly competitive play among friends. Hasn't lost it luster over the years. Again Sega rules!

Dr Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine is a classic puzzler from the 16 bit era. Originally available on the Genesis back in the early 90's, it definitely tried to take advantage of the popularity of the sonic franchise. However it really has very little to do with sonic. It's a tetris style stack em' up where falling "slime balls" of various colors need to be linked by matching the colors in 4+ combinations. Pretty simple, but can be very challenging and addicting! It's extremely cheap here on Amazon, definitely worth 5-10 bucks. But the best option is to pick up the "Sonic Genesis Collection" for Ps3 or 360.

If you were ever a fan of the Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog cartoon series - you have to play this game. In this game, Robotnik is trying to robotcize the inhabitants of Beanville, and it's up to you to stop him. You get to do battle with the main bad guys from the show including Dr. Robotnik himself and his S.S.S.S.S. (Super Special Sonic Search and Smash) Squad (including Grounder, Scratch, and Coconuts). The graphics and music are great and this is a great puzzle game that will keep you entertained for hours. I bought a Genesis just for the purpose of playing this game.

Falling block games reached the pinnacle of their evolution fairly quickly as Dr. Robotnik's MBM from 1993 is easily the most complex and fun example of the genre that began with Tetris, a primitive Russian strategy game from 1984 that has since become iconic. MBM is hardly an iconic game, but it is very cute if punishingly difficult.

I first played the game way back when it was first released at the age of twelve. I got to about level three before it got too hard from my kid's brain to cope with. Now, with the HD version on the PlayStation 3, I am able to save my progress and easily restart each level the moment I lose it is STILL nearly impossible and that's on medium difficulty.

There are 13 stages in total (the Robotnik level is a hidden final stage) and with each progression the falling beans get slightly faster with greater variation between them. It was certainly luck and not skill that took me to the final stage and end credits, but what a relief when it was finally over!

Like the Sonic the Hedgehog version of Wario's Woods (although it's really based on Puyo Pop, which is still a fun game), this game (although pretty old) is a blast and a classic. It's good to also have a game not based on the video game storyline, using one with the cartoon instead. This game is VERY challenging (for me) because I'm not too good with puzzle games. If you like Tetris, I highly recommend it, but if you're not the kind of person that likes puzzles, be warned. The highest level I can get up to is five,(thirteen levels in all) but it's still fun, so, even if you're not a puzzle fan, it's a fun game. I still play over and over, even though it came out in 1993. There are a lot of enjoyable classics out there, and this is one of them.

I didn't like it the first time I played it. It felt like another stupid Tetris knock-off, with beans. 3 months later I decided I would try it again, and WOW! I didn't realize that this game was based off the Adventures of Sonic cartoons! You play against all of the bad guys in the cartoon series, and they each have some funny dialouge. The graphics were really good! The only problem was you don't play as Sonic, and the AI was a little cruel, but it's fun for 2 dollars or as part of another Sonic Genesis Collection disc.

I played this on the sonic mega collection and I must say this game is fun and challenging I actually defeated Dr. Robotnik and his robots after I understood the rules of the game which at times left me baffled.

A simple, yet challenging puzzle game. I love the simple animation of it all. If you like Tetris, or Dr. Mario, or Yoshi's Cookie, you'll like this game.
