Side scroller idea

Hey i was thinking that maybe if we all expand on my idea, a dev will come along and make the game.
Every system has their Mario... except for the iphone

When i bought spy bot, i realized he wasnt really a spy.
i think it would be cool to have a real robot spy

this is my plot idea. it is 2020 in the distant future and robots are now used to accomplish hard labor jobs. robots are also be used for bad purposes. robots are looked down on.
robospy (needs name) is on his first spy mission: rescue the worlds best spy (also needs name). The Agency sends out the team (robospy, the proffesor (his creator and gadget maker) and the team leader) to rretrieve the agent, but it turns out that he is working with a member of a secret terrorist organization.

robo spy must fight robots and use rockets (limited) his laser (unlimited) grapple, invisibility (stealth) and other gadget upgrades
add on to this and make it a game

I think iPhone has plenty of platformers, though I would love a sequel to Spy Bot, because I absolutely loved it. The physics make it awesome.

I think the iPhone has plenty of good platformers, Bounce On, Castle of Magic, Toy Bots, Spy Bot, and others. Though I wish it had more ones involving physics like Spy and Toy Bot.

I have all of the Toy Bot series (incl Spy Bot as well). They are great platformers but I was really hoping for more of the rope levels like in Toy Bot Diaries 1. That was what stood out most for me.

Not another robot game...why. Spy Bot is there.
But I also think, the iPhone needs its own uber-hero!
There still is none... the Rolandos are too many
The Edge Box has got no character. Lizzy is sweet
but the role would be too big for this little guy.

So, yes, somebody should invent THE iPhone character

Sounds pretty cool, The best agent in the world's name should be 0007(pronounced triple07)
The guy you control(currently known as robo spy should have to be agent 4. After every world, you should gane a rank, ( add a zero to four after every world to make it 04, 004,0004.)

This sounds very like smackBOTS. Honestly, please check out smackBOTS and let us know what you think. We've also thought of making a version of smackBOTS that incorporates survival mode, side scrolling like zombieville.
