Worth It?
Yes I know its only $2.50. But is it worth every penny?

Man ! I bought it few hours ago and it's fantastic. For 2.50 it's a theft.

^ agreed. I thought the game would be good, but it's fantastic. Some might find it a bit short, though. But I think it did havea good number of puzzles and places.

they should release more campaigns to it, with the upgraded robot

I actually wish I hadn't bought it. The puzzles are just way too obvious.

First time around the game took me about 4 hours to beat. I played it a 2nd time to get all the Steam achievements and it took 1 hour. For 2.50 its a great deal. For 4.99 its pretty good. But I dont know that I'd pay the full 9.99 for the game. But overall, its a fun puzzle game

I enjoyed it. Definitely worth a play. Fun physics based puzzler. My only issue was how it ended. I experienced 2 different endings (one after a brief replay) and was hoping for a little bit of explanation of what was going on - but it just... ends...

I would say it’s worth it on sale but probably not at full price. The world is beautiful and lovingly built but there is no real depth to it. All you get is a cute robot and a bunch of puzzles. I would have liked to see some semblance of a plot or more character/amusing antics from the robots. It doesn’t need to be an epic but a bit of flavor goes a long ways towards making something more enjoyable.

It’s also very short. I finished with both endings in a little over 2 hours.

I would have to disagree with both of yall on the "lack of depth" to the game story and ending. It's definitely one of those games where you can make it be what you want. I had no qualms with the ambiguitity of the story, since I think back-story as to what the flying thing is would only ruin what I built in my head as his story. Most good art doesn't force-feed you all the pieces you need to make sense of it; you're left with your brain and imagination to fill in the gaps. In fact, it was the ambiguity of what was happening that actually compelled me to continue playing until I reached both endings.

I don't think you we're playing the same game. There's no ambiguity about a puzzle game, you either solve it or you don't. The "protagonist" is painfully one dimensional as far as story goes... I have no idea what you mean when you say "back-story"... it was a 5 second introduction. I'm a bit upset I paid $10 for this game. I wish I had waited until it was on sale at apparently $2.50.

This game cannot be replayed unless you get lobotomized. This was a fun game, but way too short, no story, and the puzzles were logical. Not worth $10.

There is a ridiculously frustrating skill-based puzzle about halfway through the game that really sours the experience in my opinion. Because of that, I can't recommend it. Up until that point, it's a slow-paced puzzle game that requires thinking. I've beaten games that are known to be hard, and for the life of me I can't beat that one part, and it simply made the game not fun for me. So I would say no, unfortunately it isn't worth it.

I don't remember a skill based puzzle...

as to the OP - for $2.50 this is an incredible steal. I will say I'm glad I wishlisted this game and waited for it to go on sale - but yes, I wouldn't (and didn't) hesitate at $2.50. Great experience.

I'm here a year later and I would recommend it C:

It's a great game. Short, but great.
