GAMEPLAY
Curvebot is a groovy, cunning, curvy drillin' bot on a mission to save his fiery friends from the dull, dreary drones.

Make cool CURVY cutouts of each world's unique shape.

See the 3D chunks fall away - curvy satisfaction!

You're a winner when there is 20% or less remaining. Curvebot has to deal with 72 different world shapes from penguins to ghosts, lobsters to teddy bears and frogs to crocodiles!

Levels are spread over 12 animated worlds from rippling water, 70's dance floors to the mad crazy boss vortex.

At the end of each level sit back and watch how you carved up the world with the unique ACTION REPLAY.

Play in "Cunning" mode where you can tune your cutting instincts before Curvebot's power runs out.

Curvebot

I'm the developer of this game. I'm based in the UK and didn't really expect this to go live yet (It's still the 13th here)

There is a video coming tomorrow (it's actually rendering as I write this) - but there is a full description and more screenshots on http://www.curvebot.com

Also, if anybody has any questions, I'll be awake for a couple of hours yet & back tomorrow.

Great!

You won't regret it - I'm well pleased with how it's has turned out (I've been playtesting this for weeks now and can see those drones in my sleep!)

Let me know how you get on.

Playing for 15 minutes now. Marcus, you did a brilliant job. The Retina graphics are TOP! And frame rate is smooooth. Controls work perfectly. Really the most beautiful "cutting" game out there. The one big challenge: Since it's 3D, you can't see the enemies behind you, so you never know when they cross your line. That makes this game a lot harder (or at least, you cannot go full risk)... But on the other hand, you got boost balls which give you a speed bump for a short amount of time.

So far, I'm really enjoying it. Quality everywhere! Congrats.

You pretty much sold me with your review. Looks like I'll be taking the plunge at 11 tonight.

No waste of money here. Right now, I can't see a single flaw. There are GC high scores and achievements, special bonuses to achieve, stars to earn... a lot of motivation to replay the levels. And the package looks and sounds fantastic. Great game, really.
