The Robot Chronicles was a game on LEGO.com. It was part of the Agents, City and Racers themes, and was also connected to My LEGO Network, in which one could earn awards connected to it.

Description

The Robot Chronicles could be accessed through agents.lego.com, racers.lego.com, and city.lego.com. The first mission varied depending on the site. If one accessed it through agents.lego.com, then the first mission was an Agents mission; if on racers.lego.com, then it was a Racers mission; and on city.lego.com, the first mission was for City. The object of the game is to unlock all vehicles by completing all missions.

There were two modes, Mission and Freestyle. the player had a certain time limit to complete the mission, and if one doesn't complete the mission within the time limit, players would be not able to complete the mission at all. However, if one did complete the mission in time, players could upgrade and get a new mission, thus getting closer to 100% completion. Once 100% completion is attained, then the player could play as Doctor Inferno's robot.

When the Agents and Racers themes were discontinued, the game and the associated awards were taken off of My LEGO Network. However, fully functional copies of the game still exist on other game websites to capitalise on it's popularity, albeit without connectivity to MLN.

Characters

  • Peelie Wheelie
  • Mechanic Stefands
  • Fire Chief Bern
  • Dr. Stitch
  • Police Chief Warner

Notes

  • During certain parts in the game, there were scenes of minifigures talking in the minifigure language.
  • If Doctor Inferno's robot is defeated in the game and afterwards a mission is played in the city's outer limits, then the robot is unleashed on LEGO City again.
  • Dr. Inferno's Forces' high speed jeeps and inferno bike could be unlocked, earned by being 1st in the Speed Inferno Challenge and Outriders Challenge. They could shoot Agents to unlock the slime chopper (100 Agent vehicles destroyed). If 100% completion was achieved (all other vehicles unlocked), the robot could be played.
  • If the player completes 100%, there is actually one more achivement: Turbocharging the fire truck. After several fires are put out with the fire truck, it will become faster and will sound like the desert buggy.
  • At the start of the game, the main section of the city is barricaded as the roadblocks would block all the bridges. After the Agents defeat Inferno the roadblocks are lifted, allowing access to the rest of the city. HOWEVER, it was possible to access the rest of the city BEFORE the roadblocks are lifted. IF no Agents missions are played and the player gets 1st place in the Speed Inferno Challenge, the High Speed Jeep is unlocked but the barricades remain. By switching between the Jeep and emergency vehicles (see below), it is possible to destroy 100 Agents and unlock the Slime Chopper before the roadblocks are lifted, and by flying over a "LEGO" garage building one can actually drive on the ground outside the roadblocks.
    Slime Chopper Glitch TRB

    Having unlocked the Slime Chopper, the player flew to Fairwind Estates, where he found a garage to change into a ground vehicle.

    Since the roadblocks are still in place, all districts outside the city lack NPCs, and mission areas aren't unlocked (because the roadblocks are still in place. However, all garages are unlocked), so the player will be the only vehicle out there.

Alone outside the city, the player's Dune Buggy looks into the barricaded city.

  • The struggle between the Agents and Inferno's troops actually seems to affect and be affected by the "health" of the city. For example, if the player takes control of a High Speed Jeep and shoots a few Agents, fires start to appear all over the City as do Inferno's troops. If the player then takes control of a Fire Truck and puts out all the fires, Agents forces appear and the Inferno's troop's disappear. Likewise, playing as Agents increases the number of Agents vehicles and decreases "emergencies", whilst not doing anything causes a cycle of a period of more "emergencies" and more of Inferno's vehicles followed by a sudden increase in "emergency" fighting vehicles (see below) and an increase also in Agents forces. In this way, a balance is reached.
  • Similarly, the City itself seems to be able to specialize vehicles to appear - for example if 10 races occur back-to-back and the city's streets are layered in skid marks, Front-End Loaders and Recycle Trucks suddenly start appearing more than other vehicles, and in no time the streets are clean. Likewise, if dozens of fires suddenly consume the city and the player does not put them out him/herself, Fire Trucks will suddenly appear and put out the fires.
    Wheelie

    The ''Wheelie'' minifigure is technically the Racer X minifigure from the Speed Racer theme.

  • The character Peelie Wheelie is actually the Racer X minifigure from the Speed Racer theme only with his visor down to hide his face.
  • Agent Fuse is the only of the original four Agents who does play a role on this game.
