REVENGE OF THE ROB-O-BOT
Fantastic physical feel, great sound and realistic gameplay. Rob-O-Bot is classic pinball at its best; It’s even a bit rugged and worn from its years in the arcades.
“The Intergalactic Rob-O-Bot has invaded Femtopia and is laying waste to this once peaceful city of the future. No-one knows why or where he comes from. It’s not important. Just help Bazooka Commandrix Betty save the metropolis from destruction! But beware, the Rob-O-Bot is programmed for REVENGE!!”
Revenge of the Rob-O-Bot is a new and fresh yet classic pinball game, made available in a digital and pocketable format. The game has that great feel you're looking for in a pinball game, it looks realistic AND there are robots. How cool isn’t that?!
The game has is made possible by the collaboration between two great teams
Some of us at Color Monkey grew up spending way too much money on pinball machines and loved the opportunity to work with our friends at NENA to design a new digital pinball game. They already had a pinball platform, some games on the AppStore and wanted our help with some textures and 3D but after talking we decided it would be more fun to simply design a completely new game. So we did and hopefully it won’t be the last.
NENA provide software design and development services and technical expertise within the field of graphics intensive applications and games for embedded systems. Rob-O-Bot is built on NENA’s own super duper pinball platform.

"I love this game, and I think you will, too. It's a steal at $2.99. [...] I’ve played nearly every pinball table in the App Store, and this one's my new favorite."

"This game is AMAZING. Easily one of the best pinball tables in the store. The theme is great, graphics and sound are fantastic, the table design is absolutely done right. I really can imagine this table being real. Would love to see that thing in an arcade. The lighting is fantastic. […] Physics are spot on as well. And you can play in landscape and portrait. And since I always play with moving cams, I have not a single complaint. 5 star pinball app. Need to go back playing."

"Wow! One of the best pinball games! - I bought this on a whim and I'm really glad I did. Fantastic graphics and displays along with truly excellent pinball physics make this one of my very favorite iPhone pinball games. The devs clearly put tons of work into this and it shows, so thanks. It's been a while since there's been a pinball game this good in the App Store."

"Technically, the game is top notch with great ball physics and many nice touches including support for landscape and portrait modes. Artistically, the game is extremely appealing to me. I love the graphics style and sounds. The theme is awesome too. […] Rob-o-bot is certainly that! 5 of 5 stars."

HOW TO PLAY
Shoot the ramps and hit everything that blinks, especially blinking arrows. Combos are the best and so are jackpots. And don’t forget to increase your bonus ‘cause that will certainly give you a lot more points in the end.
Your main goal is to defeat the evil Rob-O-Bot and you do that by completing all the missions. There are five of them and you start them all by entering the Mission Control. If you are not in a mission, the Mission Control is always open. Hit it, and follow the instructions.
General Tips and Pointers
* Use one flipper at the time
* After you've flipped, drop the flipper back down immediately
* In general, don't flip any more than you need to
* Push the device upwards to tilt
* Watch and listen to the game while you play to learn the rules
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
iPad 1 issues
We want to apologize to all iPad1 users out there that get a blank DMD-display. We have fixed this issue and it will be out in the next release. Thank you for your patience.
Extra Ball - Why don’t I get any bonus before the Extra Ball?
Well, this is just wrong isn’t it. We have fixed it and the extra ball will work as a normal extra ball in the next release.
Bonus and points
There are some tweaks needed in our points and bonus system. We have noticed some things that allows you to get way too much points for some simple things. For the next release the points and bonus system will be better balanced.
Bonus Multipliers - Why doesn’t it reset between balls?
It should, right? We think so, so in the next release it will.
What triggers the kickbacks on the outlanes?
It's the two roll-overs on the inner outlanes. You have to activate all 4 yellow lights with them. So switch between them. With all yellow lights activated you get both kickbacks back.
Will this be available for Mac/Steam/Xbox/PSN/etc?
We plan on releasing the game to all major platforms. When? We don't know.
Can I buy some Extra Balls at the end of a game?
No. Of course you can’t.
I haven’t completed a single mission. Is it supposed to be this hard?
I still need more help!
