Summary     : Port of an once famous game named Robbo from 1989

   + Scoring has been removed: goal is level advancement
   + Bears don't endlessly spin around themselves
   + Capsules don't spawn from question marks
   + Solid laser fire is not left live after the gun has been destroyed

Update Information:

* Adding gnurobbo-tronic free skins to requires so that the game works out of the box after the non-free data removal
* Removing original levels as these are very probably also non-free
