The Little Roomba That Could

The graphics are simple, but I kind of like it that way. What was drawn as a ChargeBot I see as a little Roomba going on an adventure to stay alive. The sound effects more than convince me that it is indeed a Roomba. The music was good, nothing fantastic, but good. Calming, not in your face, and nice for the puzzle aspect. This game kind of took me back to the "Trapped" series here on Newgrounds, you should really expand on this idea in the future. Unfortunately I was not able to beat this game, I got stuck on Level 11. Just could not get to that 7 Charge Space. The controls I liked having the option with, I chose the arrow keys because it was faster for me. My only nitpick is that when I was taken back to the level select screen I had to choose the next level with the mouse and I could not use the arrow keys, again just a nitpick though. A nice fun game with some love put into it. I would love to see this expanded on in the future.

A very fun minimalist puzzle game. I love it! It looks, feels and sounds clean. It reminds me of Flash games from the mid-2000s: minimalist games that were basic (and very effective) in their approaches to fun and functionality.

My only complaint is that the game made my browser lag tremendously. I tried a different browser (which froze a lot less), but it was something that was still occuring. Once I got the game to work properly, it wasn't a big deal, but it's still something I feel like I should mention.

Nevertheless, I'd love to see this game expanded, with more traps and levels.

Keep up the great work!

Glad you liked it! Those were the games we grew up playing, so clearly we were influenced by them! :)

But concerning the performance problem you were having, I'm curious as to what browser you were having the most problems with, and maybe a few specs about your machine. Any chance you could send us a quick PM?

And thanks for playing!

There isn't really anything interesting or fun about this game. It's pretty simple with good music and it's an alright game, but there's no creativity. :/

Of course you're entitled to your own opinion, but I have to admit that's kind of rude. :\
