    It is the same game... well... it's the same GROUP, anyway. Both are Armor Games. I played the first two levels and they were the same as I remember from the flash version... since it's Armor Games it's pretty quality stuff, and it's free. Very nice. :)

    Also: my first post. I just wanted to reply to this thread.

    Yeah I just spent some more time playing it, it's got a very nice polish on it. Only thing is when I exited it didn't seem to save my level progress.

    Edit: Nevermind. I'm blind. And probably need coffee. Or sleep. One or the other.

    I just checked... it did save my level progress. If I go to Load I see that I can start from level 3 if I want to.

    Reminds me of lego mindstorms. Very cool. And it's free you say?

    Its in the same genre as RoboLogic. This says has 15 sectors of play. Wonder if thats a full game? Plays well. Checked other games that Armour Games has and found Open Doors (free) and seems like a nice challenging game as well although just started playing the first few levels. Its has a simple layout but ok.

    I'm confused by this game... thank God it was free... seems like there could be a great game behind it, but i don't know if it's for me personally.. I'll revisit it when i have time but as of now i wouldn't recommend it

    also the reset level option doesn't work, the formatting is off, this game makes me angrier by the second :(

    and now going to the second level it's locked my iPhone up for the first time ever.. so after this i say fvck this game, i'm out

    The music is interesting, moving background is a great touch.

    The robot and it's movements aren't nearly as cute as the web one though. :(

    Bubble Tanks would be great.

    The robot in this game reminds me of the one from that movie wall•e.

    Finished all 15 levels in under 30 minutes... fun enough for the asking price. It only gets a little more interesting on the last few levels (11 to 15).

    All in, it's not a bad puzzler. I'd be willing to pay for an expanded version with, say, 50 levels or so.

    This is way too easy, but it's free and well done.

    If the levels were somehow randomly generated, I'd be in love; this would easily be a top game.

    Solving level 11 was a lot of fun, took a little time, but it finally clicked. ^ ^

    Well if you can get the dev's email address, i'll write him personally!

    PS I agree the robot looks very similarly to EVE (i think that's the name of the girl robot)

    Now being a "designer" and someone that's fairly familiar with copyright law I'd say that they might not have changed the main character quite enough to escape Pixar's legal team.

    All I have to say is "WAAAAAAAALLLLLLLL•EEEEEEEEEEEE! NOOOOOOO!"

    ALso, LightBot (which is free) looks 99.9% like iBot (which is 2.99), from the loading screen, to the interface, to the EVE character ripoff, and even the app icon!

    What's the deal here, I wonder?

    EDIT: iBot doesn't specify how many levels its giving you for 2.99; LightBot has 15 easy ones.

    Don't forget the levels, judging by the screen shots from iBot, the levels (at least the ones shown) are the exact same.
