IUGO has just dropped the price of their Toy Bot Diaries game series to just $0.99 per episode [App Store]

Toy Bot Diaries is a three-part series of games originally priced at $3.99 each. The game follows the adventures of a tiny Toy Bot who is trying to regain its memories:

Tiny Toy Bot has awakened within a strange machine and now he needs your help! Use Toy Bot’s handy grappling hook and magnet boots to navigate him through environments teeming with physics-based challenges as he plunges into an unfamiliar world. Search for Toy Bot’s lost datapads to recover his memory and guide him on his top secret mission.

The price drop promotion also corresponds to their $10,000 Excellent Adventure Giveaway which gives game owners an opportunity to win $10,000 after collecting 25 datapads in each episode.

We reviewed episode 1 back in August and described as one of the first true iPhone games. This gameplay video captures the early portion of the game which is best described as a physics platform puzzler.

At only $0.99, we consider these titles to be a "must buy" and you should certainly try at least one episode. For those who are still a little gun-shy, a Lite version of the game remains available [App Store]

    I just bought the final two chapters this weekend so I missed out on the sale, but I can't really complain. They're both a huge step up from the first chapter and I'm having a ton of fun.

    are the 2nd and third chapters better?
    i bought the first one, which was okay...i kept wanting to tilt the device for some gravity physics controls because that seemed more natural...so that led to some frustration...dont think i ever finished the first one

    @lynch I think the later chapters are better than the first. I don't think the controls are improved as much as the puzzles are far better suited for them. I admit the contest got me interested in getting past the first chapter, but I was very happy once I moved on.

    Been holding out on this game for so long, mainly because the lite version didn't hold my interest.
    Can I simply skip purchasing the first part? Or is it crucial to the experience?

    There's a story recap at the beginning of the second and third chapter, and the first level of each has quick instructions on the controls. Although part of the gameplay involves piecing together the backstory, this isn't Memento - the plot is extremely simple.

    It's a shame they didn't release a single app with all three chapters for $2.99, so we could save a bit of precious home screen real estate while we're at it...

    first one is not horrible but pretty bad compared to 2 and 3. 3 is the best and 2 is pretty close behind 2.

    And there it is.

    Been waiting for this. I liked the lite version way back in August, but wasn't willing to part with $4 at the time, and wasn't willing to part with $12 after the other two came out.

    This is essentially a drop from $12 to $3. I'm in.
