Quote:
The year is 1957 and a fleet of flying saucers from Planet X have come to Earth. These saucers are under the control of the evil Brain Aliens who are abducting helpless human beings and taking them away to strange alien worlds to become slaves of The Giant Brain. Luckily for the human race there exist the Otto Matics, robots who police the galaxy in the name of all that is good and decent.

You are Otto Matic, the robot who is given the job of saving Earth from the clutches of The Giant Brain from Planet X. You must rescue as many humans as you can while defeating the Brain Aliens and all of their evil minions. Your mission will take you to strange and fantastic alien worlds which are often treacherous and will require Otto to perform amazing feats.

Your rocket ship will take you to each of the planets, starting with Earth. While on each planet you must save as many humans as you can, but be careful because the Brain Aliens will try to abduct the humans before you can save them. To escape the planet you must also collect rocket fuel. Once The Giant Brain has been defeated and peace has been restored to the galaxy, you will return to Earth with your human cargo where they will be freed.

In Otto Matic...

10 levels on amazing alien worlds!
Battle 25 different alien creatures!
Attack with 7 different types of space-age weapons
Fight off giant radioactive killer vegetables!
Ski behind giant metal sea monsters on a river of toxic ooze!
Ride soap bubbles across noxious lakes of slimy goo!
Get shot out of a cannon!
Rescue humans from flying saucers!
Ride bumper cars!
Drink radioactive potions to grow to 50ft tall!
Ride a zip-line to escape mutant radioactive robots!
Pilot a flying saucer and lay waste to an alien fortress!
Battle the Giant Brain from Planet X
And much, much more!

Otto Matic is simply the best game that Pangea Software has ever produced. This game really puts the action and adventure in the action-adventure genre! Great concept, great gameplay, and great visuals and audio make Otto Matic our finest achievement for both the Mac and the iPhone.

The screenshots look great. It looks like it uses a d-pad for controls.

I agree that tilt would be nice...I'm just wondering what that would look like in this game.

I would imagine that it would work exactly like Bugdom.... somewhat of a letdown...

I'll definitely be buying this one. It looks similar to bugdom which I enjoyed, but better. I think Pangea gets an undeserved bad rap, they've got some decent games (and plus a 99c price drop is inevitable)
