"Calling it the first Cartoon Network game is a little bit dubious."
Cartoon Reviewer

Dexter's Laboratory: Robot Rampage is a 2000 action game developed by Taito in association with Altron and published by Bay Area Multimedia for the Game Boy Color only in North American regions. This is actually a reskin of Elevator Action EX, which was also developed by Altron on the same year as this game.

Why It Sucks

Note: A few of these points also apply to Elevator Action EX and the original Elevator Action.

  1. The music in this game feels rather generic and doesn't feel like it's from the TV show that this game is based on.
  2. The levels in this game just revolve around taking elevators up and down and taking the stairs, and it gets extremely boring quickly.
  3. The robot enemies are all the same with different paint jobs.
  4. All you do in the levels are just opening up doors to get as many points as possible, making it similar to Hotel Mario in a way.
  5. Cheap deaths and instant game-overs. Plus, Mandark's evil smile in the Game Over screen is pretty creepy to some extent.
  6. Really bad storyline: Mandark reprograms Dexter's robots, and all you need to do is search the lab for "secret codes".
  7. Similar to Dexter's Laboratory: Deesaster Strikes, you can't really run at all.
  8. As mentioned above, the game is a reskin of Elevator Action EX, which was also released in the same year.
  9. When you lose a life, Dexter ends up in his underwear, which is very bizarre for a death animation.

Redeeming Qualities

  1. The idea of having Mandark as the villain is still true to the original show despite how generic he is in this game.
  2. The graphics are nice for its time on the Game Boy Color.
