Help Robo-E in his Quest to Clean the Galaxy from Toxic Waste

Member of the AppleVis Editorial Team

In this podcast, Holly gives us a demonstration of Robo-E, a newly-released iOS game that has the title character in charge of cleaning up the galaxy from toxic waste.

To do this, he needs your help to guide him through hundreds of levels, all  of which are fully accessible with VoiceOver.

Holly shows us just the first 2 of these levels. If you want to do these yourself without any of her tips, simply stop the podcast as soon as you've heard enough to understand the concept and gameplay.

Robo-E is available from the App Store for 99 cents.

Thank you for creating this podcast. Admittedly, the workings of the game are beyond me at the moment. I'm certainly going to listen to your demonstration to receive a better understanding of it. Thanks again.

Your podcast was good. I noticed you mentioned you haven't gotten past level 3 and wonder if you have since then. If not a hint question, did you know Robo-E can stand on a square with an energy ring. Only thing about game I think it would help if the squares were labeled like in some other tile games. or is there a way to activate this feature I haven't discovered yet?

Thanks for the podcast, Holly. now I want to try this game.
So happy to hear about accessible games for the iPhone.
iOS, voiceover, and the touchscreen give wonderful opportunities for designing new types of games for us.
