Mobot the robot is expected to mindlessly labor at his job deep inside the bowels of a corporate production facility while his monkey boss vents frustration by throwing obstacles Mobot's way.
Help Mobot stick it back to the system while avoiding being replaced by a cheaper model in this deliciously retro 80s style electronic handheld game rehash.

Still the best handheld LCD device remake
I wish OS X had Game Center so this version could be as great as on iOS, but gameplay and presentation are still at its best, so it's a good retro title, especially at the lower price.
