New free game - LightBot - looks interesting?

Seems like an interesting concept. No time to try it now, just wanted to point it out to you guys.

I had thought about doing a port of that. I wonder if it's the same dev that did the Flash version: http://www.kongregate.com/games/Coolio_Niato/light-bot.

It is the same game... well... it's the same GROUP, anyway. Both are Armor Games. I played the first two levels and they were the same as I remember from the flash version... since it's Armor Games it's pretty quality stuff, and it's free. Very nice.

Also: my first post. I just wanted to reply to this thread.

Yeah I just spent some more time playing it, it's got a very nice polish on it. Only thing is when I exited it didn't seem to save my level progress.

Edit: Nevermind. I'm blind. And probably need coffee. Or sleep. One or the other.

I just checked... it did save my level progress. If I go to Load I see that I can start from level 3 if I want to.

Reminds me of lego mindstorms. Very cool. And it's free you say?

Its in the same genre as RoboLogic. This says has 15 sectors of play. Wonder if thats a full game? Plays well. Checked other games that Armour Games has and found Open Doors (free) and seems like a nice challenging game as well although just started playing the first few levels. Its has a simple layout but ok.

I'm confused by this game... thank God it was free... seems like there could be a great game behind it, but i don't know if it's for me personally.. I'll revisit it when i have time but as of now i wouldn't recommend it

also the reset level option doesn't work, the formatting is off, this game makes me angrier by the second

and now going to the second level it's locked my iPhone up for the first time ever.. so after this i say fvck this game, i'm out
