I got this game this morning using a promo code. So far, I'm enjoying it, but can't quite figure out how to push the ball in the right direction. I know you can double-tap on it and it'll move if the character is next to it (as I understand it anyway), but I'm also told I can swipe in the direction you want to push it to. I tried doing a double-tap and hold, then moving in the direction I wanted after hearing the three-beep sound from VO, but nothing appeared to happen. Can someone please explain how this is done?

Kelly, Try using the three fingers swipe in the direction you want Robo-E to move or pursh. HTH

I got passed levels one and two perfectly. I can't seem to get passed level three though. There are two energy rings so do you have to get one ball over each ring? If that's the case, how do you go about doing that because there are walls right in front of the rings which means the balls have no where to go once they are on the rings. Or is it just that the energy ring is large, which makes it seem like there are two rings? Anyone have any ideas?

Hi. I just uploaded a podcast demonstrating this game. Hopefully it will help people understand how to play. I hope I explained it good enough so that people can get the general idea of how the game works.

So like I'm hooked on this game. So far I have completed quite a few Puzzles.

 

The one Puzzle I'm baffled with is Level 7. The initial start of the Level is that that one of the Ball is already on the Energy Ring. Sort of towards the top right corner of the puzzle.

 

Now have you notice that you can only move this ball by doing the triple finger swipe? Otherwise, you jump over the ball. Yes, doulbe tap on the square you want to push the ball and it goes right over the ball and lands Robo-E right in to that spot. Doesn't eveen touch the ball at all?!?

 

So my question to everyone. Have you noticed this and is this part of the game to keep you guessing and trying to figure out things?

 

Also, lastly below is what I have done to complete Puzzle 7. You will noticed that He states I have made 34 Moves. Technically, I did it in 31 Moves. What gives?

 

If no one answser here I'll shoot off an email to the devs but I'm certain they probably get questions all of the time. How do you solve this puzzle and such. So hopefully one of you fine Robo-E fans out there could help me on this.

 

Here are the solutions and what I did for this puzzle:

 

Level 7: 5 Pushes 34 Moves
Up
Left
Left
Down
Down

Left
Up

Push Right

Any help be greatly apprieciated!

Let's say Robo-e is to the right of a ball. To move the ball one square to the left, swipe left with three fingers or double-tap the ball. If you want to move Robo-e to the square to the left of the ball, double-tap the blank square to the left of the ball. Robo-e will move directly to any blank space in the puzzle as long as there is a clear path to it, I.E no walls or balls blocking the path. Since Robo-e can only push balls, it has to be on the opposite side of the ball from the direction you want the ball to move in. So if you want the ball to move down, Robo-e has to be above the ball. If you want the ball to move to the right, robo-e has to be to the left of the ball. So again, double tap the ball to move the ball. Double tap a blank square to move robo-e to that blank square if nothing is blocking its path. One hint for anyone struggling with some of the puzzles is that robo-e can use the energy ring as a blank space. I did that to solve a couple of puzzles. I first thought this game was pointless, but have found it to be addicting. It has been fassinating to learn this game is based on an early 1980s game developed in Japan called Sokoban. Is this the first accessible version of Sokoban? Also, I was curious to see how many puzzles are in the game, and was amazed at the number. I don't think I will ever be able to solve all of them because there are puzzles from other authors you can select. I would have paid more for this game given it's not something you win in 10 minutes and have nothing else to do with it after that. Replay value is huge!.

I have a long history of wanting to like games, but not really getting into them. Recently, I've been getting into puzzle games, and so far, this game is continuing the trend. The puzzles are challenging, yet not so consuming I lose track of what's going on around me. I can work out the logic at my own pace. I like the lack of sounds as they can be distracting. I think this is a great game, and look forward to lots of fun with it.

As echoed in a comment abuv, I hadn't found an Iphone game that I wanted to pick up a second or third time. That was until tonight. I can safely say, I'm hooked!! A fantastic way to spend free/travel time while offline. I'm on level 8 after an hour or so.

Happy gaming to all!
