Daily Alpha Update: Robot Thief

Posted by Sir Max on November 10, 2013 at 2:00 PM

The Toon Council had another meeting last night- it took some persuading, but I was finally able to get back in. (I'm telling you, these people just don't understand the beauty of Crane Dozers.)



They opened up the meeting by congratulating everyone on their hard work these past two weeks on getting every Trolley Game completed, and that it was time to move on to the next thing. No, no, seriously. They said that every Trolley Game was finished. We hadn't even completed the new version of Cannon Tag!

"Fellas, fellas! Come on! There are still tons of possibilities. I know that you haven't been fans of my work in the past, but just sit back and listen to this one. Robot Thief."

I then continued to tell the greatest game ever conceived. The Toon Council stared in awe I told the story of Robot Thief: It was a story of love, of live, of death- and of explosions. It was truly beautiful. Some of the members began to weep softly, unable to imagine the magnitude of this. "Sir Max," they said, "When can we begin work on this game?"

I then showed them the budget needed to build Robot Thief and was instantly rejected. These guys. One minute they are in tears of joy, the next they are shooing you out the door. I can't wait for the elections to get these guys out. I was on my way out to find some more "public" property to build Robot Thief on, however one of guys from Loony Labs stopped me and told the Council that he believed the idea was worth the money. He even volunteered to have Loony Labs manufacture the parts needed!

Thanks to him, I'm pleased to announced a brand new, completely not the same as any other game you might have disliked, version of Robot Thief! The Toon Council has agreed to put this one last game in, however they are pulling it out in an instant if you Toons don't enjoy it. Please send in any feedback you have about this game, as we will greatly improve it if it becomes popular.

November 10, 2013 [ttr-alpha-9c8b4ff]

Maintenance:
? Tons of new administrative features for us to "test" with. Please inform us if you see a staff member having too much fun!

Bugfixes:
? Fix a district reset when clicking "Bingo"
? Fix a bug where the Bingo reward would be listed as 0
? Fix a bug where previous spaces would be carried over to the next card
? Make Toons shout "BINGO!" when winning

Features:
? Update Whitelist to include even more community-suggested words
? Reworked more of SpeedChat based on community suggestions
? Completely redo "Robot Thief" to improve gameplay.
Hopefully you find it more fun than the original! If you like it, we will be making many improvements to the game in the coming days. If you don't, we will put the original "Robot Thief" back in. Please remember that it is only experimental, not a finished game.

Yay! Haha Sir Max has such an animated way of telling these updates!

Violet said on November 10, 2013 at 2:03 PM
Robot Theif? Never thought of that name before... I like it! Although I would rather be playing Crane Dozers...

colonal oscar said on November 10, 2013 at 2:04 PM
cogs...sounds like a lot of progress! keep going on updating!

Super Toon said on November 10, 2013 at 2:09 PM
Wow this is so cool!

Super Peppy said on November 10, 2013 at 2:10 PM
I could tell from the word Robot that i would like this

DogMan said on November 10, 2013 at 2:20 PM
Great work!

Master Alvin Thundertoon said on November 10, 2013 at 2:25 PM
Yay cog thief is back! Can't wait to play when public release comes out!

Captain Rickey said on November 10, 2013 at 2:47 PM
Wow I just saw gameplay of "Robot Thief" and it looks beast! :D

Funny said on November 10, 2013 at 2:53 PM
Robot Thief looks AWESOME!

Boo Boo said on November 10, 2013 at 2:55 PM
Robot Thief looks like a good idea :3 Could you guys put photo fun back in?

Boo Boo said on November 10, 2013 at 2:55 PM
I think that Robot Thief has a lot of potential!

Fireball said on November 10, 2013 at 3:04 PM
It's great that you guys are implementing new trolly games!

Dave said on November 10, 2013 at 3:16 PM
Can't wait to see that mini game! ((Hope there's a 'skip' button to Toon Memory Game)) Oh well. Toontown Rewritten is going great! Keep doing your best guys!

Huigberts said on November 10, 2013 at 3:17 PM
Great, I can't wait to play it! It sounds like a fantastic game!

Carmel Apples said on November 10, 2013 at 3:19 PM
Can't wait to play the game and see my toon best friend! (blue cat)

Crimson said on November 10, 2013 at 3:26 PM
Aww, yeah! Toontown Rewritten's trolley is going to be a blast. I'm actually looking forward to seeing the trolley games when it comes out! (:

Lilsoccergirl01 said on November 10, 2013 at 3:30 PM
You guys are the best!!! :)

Mayor said on November 10, 2013 at 3:52 PM
How about photo fun and the other removed minigame. but good work

Tooner said on November 10, 2013 at 3:55 PM
i dont really complain too much about ttr but can you please put back the old cog thief

Tom McTeeth said on November 10, 2013 at 3:57 PM
I saw a video of Robot Thief of YouTube. It looks pretty cool, but the game seems a little easy and not too challenging. If the "robots" moved faster, I have a feeling the game would be challenging just the right amount.

Duke Moe Zillerquack said on November 10, 2013 at 3:58 PM
I saw a video of it and it looks WAY better!

Spell Caster said on November 10, 2013 at 4:06 PM
I love this new idea of a game! But please add back Photo Fun! :)

Wilbur said on November 10, 2013 at 4:12 PM
Finally a new trolly game that came! It looks quite great :-)

Wilbur said on November 10, 2013 at 4:12 PM

Andy said on November 10, 2013 at 4:19 PM
Bring back Photo Fun please!

Daphne said on November 10, 2013 at 4:38 PM
Crane Dozers eh? To bad it wouldn't happen. I would have LOVED it!

J.C Fumble Flapper said on November 10, 2013 at 4:39 PM
Best part about this not being controlled by a major cog company is that you guys have the freedom to make things out of the box and a very important thing that is unlike most major cog companies you consider us, the players first.

Golden said on November 10, 2013 at 4:41 PM
YES FINALLY this was my favorite game of all and i just cant wait to play it plz hurry with getting the game out i cant wait!!!!!

Flippy said on November 10, 2013 at 4:56 PM
Make sure to cast in your votes for me to be President! And I promise that soon all Toons receive free housing and more neighborhoods and streets to explore! ~Flippy, Toontown President Candidate.

Captain MacQuack said on November 10, 2013 at 5:34 PM
Are you guys going to add the original Cog Thief as well? That was favortite Trolley game!!!!!!

TruGamer said on November 10, 2013 at 6:10 PM
Could the Cogs invade Toontown Rewritten Too? I hope the Cogs come *Cog laughing*

Cliff said on November 10, 2013 at 6:18 PM
Can you guys please add at least add random toons that gives tips instead of the Disney characters in each street? And in instead of Clarabelle, you add another toon? I don't think that's copyright. Or at least convince the attorneys to let you guys use the Disney characters; these are one of the fun things in Toontown!!

Gwen's Hero said on November 10, 2013 at 6:21 PM
Robot Thief, hmm. I can't wait to see the gameplay! I still can't believe you guys are doing all this, devoting all your time to it. We're all so grateful! So all the trolley games have been put back in now! Except Photo Fun. ...we don't really need that one, do we? :P

Mews-A-Lot said on November 10, 2013 at 6:35 PM
Could you make the friends list bigger?

Hannah said on November 10, 2013 at 6:40 PM
I CANT wait for it to be open to public!!!!! :)

Princess Ginger said on November 10, 2013 at 6:45 PM
I too saw a video of it and it seems like a really good improvement! I always thought the old Cog Thief was hard to play and kind of annoying... so I'm glad you guys changed it, hehe. @Tom, they're probably gonna make it harder for the other playgrounds... remember how TTC had the easiest games and DDL had the hardest? Also I agree with putting back in Photo Fun! I remember it being a lot of fun.

Daydream said on November 10, 2013 at 6:48 PM
I am absolutely loving these updates, I grin each time I read them! ^^ Toontastic work Toontown Rewritten Staff, I can't wait to hear more! ^^ I get more and more excited each time I read one! ^^

PigGuy said on November 10, 2013 at 6:58 PM
This seems as if its going to be a great game Max! I love what you are doing and are glad to see you are working very hard to fix the bugs and come with unique content every day. Keep it up!

Chester Crinkletoon said on November 10, 2013 at 7:06 PM
I always thought this would be a good idea: Make trolley games that are sort of simplified, mock VP, CFO, CJ, and CEO boss battles so young laff toons can know what it's like when they actually get to that level of play. Good idea?

Rhubarb Fuzzyberry said on November 10, 2013 at 7:06 PM
I love how Sir Max tells the story of developing TTR! It's such a fun and creative way to keep us updated! I liked Cog Thief on old TT, but I'm sure you guys will be able to make it even better! Keep up the good work guys! :D

Doggenpop said on November 10, 2013 at 7:13 PM
It looks great! But it could be better if it was bigger because its a little cramped it looks, and looks like its hard to see. But otherwise this idea is awesome!

Clover said on November 10, 2013 at 7:55 PM
It's so touching to see you guys working so hard for us! Keep it up! :')

Interference said on November 10, 2013 at 8:32 PM
Hi, I'm Interference, a small, royal blue cat with brown arms :). I'm so exited about TTR, I cant wait for TTR to be released to public, couldn't get an Alpha Key :(. But, who cares :), Sir Max is awesome, and nice, enough to bring it to the public! I can't wait to have my toon's story, REWRITTEN!

King Megawig said on November 10, 2013 at 8:49 PM
I'm amazed on how quickly you guys are re-building this game. I can't thank you enough. But as everyone has been saying, "Add photo fun please" :). Keep up the great work.

Laffy said on November 10, 2013 at 9:19 PM
I LOVE Robot Thief! It's much better than Cog Thief in my opinion! You should definitely keep this one, all the way! Please do!~?

Fuzzy said on November 10, 2013 at 9:40 PM
What if the toons on the trolley could vote on whether they wanted to play Robot Thief or Cog Thief Original? Like you had both available and majority wins? They seem really different even though they aren't (I watched gameplay).

Isabella said on November 10, 2013 at 11:07 PM
How creative! You guys never fail to put a smile on my face!

Max Sparklez said on November 10, 2013 at 11:31 PM
The new wide screen kinda messes things up. You see stuff you're not supposed to and it looks broken :(

Princess Marigold Crunchengrooven said on November 11, 2013 at 3:23 AM
I'm not an alpha tester, but i just noticed there is 1 game missing. Toon Escape!

Hope said on November 11, 2013 at 4:47 AM
Keep it up!! I cant wait until we're smashing cogs again! You're doing great! :)

Rainbow Berry said on November 11, 2013 at 5:35 AM
Robot Thief!? I am at a loss for words. This is so cool! All I have to say is: Thanks a million!

Super Dog said on November 11, 2013 at 6:09 AM
I hope the next update would be some cogs because I want to see how would Playgrounds and streets could be improved.

Cutie said on November 11, 2013 at 6:37 AM
Wow this is really cool. My favorite trolley games were always cog theif and toon escape. Not toon memory game, though...

alicat132 said on November 11, 2013 at 7:02 AM
i cant wait till it comes out :)!!!!!!

Sirflapjack Sourfidget said on November 11, 2013 at 7:04 AM
Sir Max, I love what you are doing. Before ToonTown closed, i had been playing for about five years! I was very sad when TT closed. I wish i had an Alpha key to help TTRW fix glitches and bugs. I am truly amazed at how much you guys have accomplished in a short period of time. The ToonTown community thanks you for your efforts.

Misty Swiss said on November 11, 2013 at 7:20 AM
I hate to complain, but I like Cog Theif better. Not only that, but I saw a video of it and it looks to easy. Please add Cog Theif in substitute :3

Captain Dusty Snorkelmouth said on November 11, 2013 at 9:37 AM
Robot Thief sounds like a good idea! Can't wait 'till it releases to public!

Huigberts said on November 11, 2013 at 9:41 AM
I saw the old and the new version on youtube and the new one is much better, defeat that cogs! I should like it to see that you are making a lot more of new versions of cog games, maybe a 3D version of the pacman like game, that would be awsome.

Princess Trixie Sparkleberry said on November 11, 2013 at 9:52 AM
I am so excited for Toontown Rewritten to come out!!! :D

Dudley Sparkledoodle! said on November 11, 2013 at 10:52 AM
I hope Robot Thief has more barrels and level 2 cogs! I love level 2 cogs because you get a fun challenge, unlike the regular one-hit cogs that just explode on contact with a cream pie! I still love the stories to go along with the updates, and I too hope the council gets re-elected. Oh, and will you make a door into the lab where the gorilla busted out in Toon HQ? I loved that glitch!

Never Leaf said on November 11, 2013 at 11:26 AM
As one of the few toons that liked cog theif (only cause the trolley gave me the game so much that I save all barrels each time when playing it), I bet this minigame will alot more fun and can't wait to try it out whenever ttr comes out! :D

Starfire said on November 11, 2013 at 12:01 PM
Super Excited for all the new updates!

Sheriff Frizzy said on November 11, 2013 at 12:20 PM
I honestly find the third person view of Cog thief A LOT more better than the original one. Great job guys!

Tas said on November 11, 2013 at 12:40 PM
I watched others playing while peering over the tall green hedges. The game looked awesome, but I'm having mixed feelings about those robots...

Lily said on November 11, 2013 at 1:22 PM
Sweet, keep up the good work! ^-^

Mikey said on November 11, 2013 at 1:23 PM
Oh my god, I havent played Toontown and years and cried when it was down. I dont care if im 18 This was the game!! Im so glad you guys did this, Ill make sure my children carry on the legacy.

Mister Fluffy Dynoteeth said on November 11, 2013 at 2:06 PM
I like the new Robot Thief game, it is much better than the original Cog Thief game! I really hope it sticks around! Though maybe the name is a bit unfitting at the moment--maybe it can be renamed to Gag Thief or something like that sometime in the future?

Trixie said on November 11, 2013 at 2:07 PM
sadly we have to remake our toons atleast its free to play and will be way way better then that other toontown this is gonna be the best game ever!!!!!!

Tixie said on November 11, 2013 at 2:11 PM
flippy will be the best president and I vote for you flippy! thank and thanks to all the toontown rewritten construction workers!!! keep up the good work and thanks sirmax!

Dialga said on November 11, 2013 at 2:16 PM
Hi peeps! is this where cogs get added to the streets?

Spike WildFlapper said on November 11, 2013 at 2:20 PM
I still don't understand why people hated the original Cog Thief. I personally loved it. It was my 2nd favorite trolley game (Ice Slide was 1st) and found the controls really easy. I always could solo it and not lose any barrels (maybe one.. heh..).

Golduck said on November 11, 2013 at 2:43 PM
Aww, wait. There's no more games being put in? What about Toon Escape? Robot Thief looks like a ton of fun, though.

Dark Knight said on November 11, 2013 at 3:14 PM
Weren't those the original Tag Game models? I find it interesting that they were implemented into Cog Thief instead. :p Anyway, I love this new remodel. Once all the bugs are tested out and fixed, I'm sure it will be a great game! I'm all for it. :)

Mecha Soniic said on November 11, 2013 at 4:57 PM
Love the sound of it alreay!!! (sorry to bring back memories but) In the old Toontown, (the one made by Disney) Robot Theif was one of my FAVORITE trolly games! WOOHOO nice to know its in TTRW!

Maxy Rewritten said on November 11, 2013 at 6:52 PM
I hate the way Disney's company reimagined Disney, Disney was all cartoons, then replaced Disney, using it for what they call those evil little "Reality TV Shows" DEUUEAUGH I can't stand saying it.

Scootaloo said on November 11, 2013 at 8:49 PM
Can't wait for the game to be out so I can try it out. It looks like so much fun!

Aeiu said on November 12, 2013 at 7:36 AM
Robot Thief was my top 5 favorite games on the trolley. My least favorite game was the one with umbrella and landing on the targets. That mini-game takes too long to end lol. Also the memory match is annoying as well.

Snivy The Purple said on November 12, 2013 at 11:10 AM
What an amazing update! :D

Coronel snuffy said on November 14, 2013 at 7:26 AM
I LOVE YOU!!!!!!!

raven said on November 14, 2013 at 11:14 AM
cant wait for the full thing and i think this will be cool to see what your team has added!

Flippy said on November 14, 2013 at 2:36 PM
What are cogs?

Big Beak said on November 14, 2013 at 11:08 PM
I don't have an alpha key so I can't rest it but it sounds like a lot of fun! More so than cog thief was, for. What I hear on Youtube and stuff! I still vote photo fun tho :P thanks for ur hard work guys!!!

Miss Marry said on November 15, 2013 at 2:46 PM
I remember a toontown Japanese trolley game called dodge a cog, I never got to play it but I saw photos and I heard about it It reminds me of a mix of this game robot theif AND the tag game
