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 Playing After All These Years

I bought this like ten years ago to play on my iPad 2, and I've played it on every device I've had since then. It still works great on my iPad Pro, and remains a speedy retro break. It's a wonderful nostalgic recreation, and a fun little action game.

Early 80s Handheld Magic

Ever played any of the old Game & Watch series? This is just like that. Fun, hectic, endless action just like those little handhelds. 5 stars in my book!
