@ Anon 14:00,

That is one of the best comments I've ever seen on here! :)

Nice, but after some screens robot is repeating known ways again and again. Is there some hidden way/object/"update"?

I can't find the rihgt way after the upper tree with the little bridges on the left side. The only way is to jump down into nothing to the left and fall down to one of the first checkpoints. From there I can only find ways I already visited ...

This is aggravating as all get out! I'm in a section where you have to drop down with spikes both over and above, attempt to use the steam pack to get to the other side to try and climb a flat wall on the left, but the steam pack doesn't last long enough. GRRRRR!

Agree with 18:33. Don't know if we are at the same spot in the game but I hear ya on the aggravation level.

Is there a search box on this site where I can type in a game name and click "search" because I don't see one unless I'm overlooking it?

@ Anon 22:27,

The search box is on the left-hand side of the homepage. It has "Search This Blog" above it and "Game Design" below it. I hope that makes it wasier for you to find. :)

This requires more coordination than I possess, so I gave up pretty early. Doesn't seem to be much to do except navigate.

Its not impossible, but there are more than a few hair pulling out moments.

Whew! Finally got it! Some of the screens with spikes/jet-pack usage were a little crazy! But I promise you it is possible. I finally managed to phone home! :)

Reminds me of Knytt Stories but with a robot.

Wall jumping is one of the most annoying platformer move and this game is just about that

- Oh, Earth?
- Yeah, the planet of steam rocket packs and stuff.
- Why do they need these steam rocket packs again?
- Well, looking at all their flying islands they just didn't manage to build enough bridges.
- Oh, i see...
- And they need to avoid spikes tactically placed on the floor so...
- Ok, I get it.
