Ever feel like a bot in a maze? Well, now you can be one. That nasty hoverbot has swiped your teddy bear, and you have to keep solving puzzles to get it back.
What is it?
Create simple programs (patterns of movement) to make the robot traverse the grid in order to reach his beloved teddy bear, Bobo.
The only problem for you is that once you get your bear back, along comes the hoverbot to swipe it again.
How does it work?
The game requires you to create a series of movements from a menu of options. Once you have created what you believe will be a correct pattern, press the play button and wait for success (or failure). The patterns are basically a simple program the robot executes.
The graphics are fairly sophisticated for a simple puzzle game, and the background sounds are well balanced.
Is it contagious?
Robo & Bobo may have a silly premise at its heart, but it is still an enjoyable puzzle game. There may be more than one way program a solution, so you get to use some creative problem solving skills. The graphics are nice and the gameplay is engaging.
The only downside is that the command placement on the iPod touch screen can be a bit tricky, but that is simply due to the size factor.
This is a well-done puzzle game that’s good for almost all ages.
