In OzoDraw, users can choose from multiple gameplay modes, and draw lines and patterns on the screen for the Ozobot to follow. In FreeDraw mode, users start with a blank canvas, while Playground mode offers mazes as backgrounds for a starting point.
Meanwhile, Challenge mode introduces a “simple logic exercise,” asking players to navigate Ozobot from the Start point to the Finish line using a few color codes. The mode will serve as both a game, and as a further introduction to Ozobot’s functionality.
Meawhile, OzoLuck is described as a “modern day game of chance,” which sees “Ozobot cruising through a labyrinth with customizable exits to decide the user’s fate.”
Future updates will introduce additional games for the robot. OzoPath, for instance, will offer a 1-2 player tile-based strategy game, while OzoGroove will let users choreograph “dance” moves for the robot to their favorite songs. OzoPath is due to release in September, still well ahead of the robot’s full launch later this year.
