General Information

How to Play

  • The aim in each level of the game is to solve a series of tasks using the special skills of one or more robots.
  • Each robot is introduced with a three-level tutorial where the special skills are demonstrated. After this, you can switch over to play as different robots either by clicking the tabs at the bottom of the screen or by clicking the robots in the game window.
  • Move the mouse cursor and left click on useful objects to perform actions. The default cursor is the green arrow, which is used to move characters around and also to switch between characters. The cursor will change to a magnifying glass icon over objects that can be examined, and a character icon over objects where a special skill can be used.
  • The hint button becomes active one minute after it has been used. Pressing the button gives a basic hint about what should be done next.
  • The menu button displays buttons to save, load and quit. There are sound options to adjust the volume levels of robot voice, human voice and music, and there is also an option to display subtitles. The extras button shows how many of the 8 bonus items have been unlocked. These bonus items can be selected to display concept art from the game. Finally, there is a bloopers button that can be selected after all 8 bonus items have been found.


The Robots

  • Hero: Has the ability to pick items up and use them on objects. The item that is currently being carried appears as an icon above Hero's head. To drop the item, click the icon.
  • Ultrabot: Has the ability to push certain objects. Arrows will be displayed if the object can be moved in more than one direction.
  • Kelvin: Has the ability to burn certain objects. Some heated objects cool down after a while, so following actions may need to be done quickly.
  • Ibi: Has the ability to swim underwater. Ibi can tow certain objects while she is in the water and use them on other objects. Ibi can also roll around in a ball shape while on land, but no objects can be towed while she is in this state.
  • Bomchelle: Has the ability to bomb certain objects. Doing this normally opens a new section of the level or reveals an object.
