This is my submission for the Newgrounds 2011 Robot Day Contest. Your goal is to lead the robot probes into a portal by removing pieces of ground, rotating the probes' center of gravity, along with the center of gravity of some pieces of the ground. But most importantly, you must use your wits to lead the probes to the portal, and stop them from floating aimlessly into space, or into a death trap. Play through all 49 exciting levels!

Though the controls are listed in the game, here's a small list to remind you:

Left Click - Remove piece of the ground, or select a probe or rotating piece of ground.
Arrow Keys - Rotate a selected piece of rotating ground.
Q - Adjust Quality
R - Retry Level
M - Menu

Just as a side note, the game also saves automatically, so there's no rush to finish it all at once.

Thanks for playing!

I admit this game was quite hard, but I didn't think it was bad at all. It's mostly because it works great as a puzzle game. The animation could probably be better. Is this animation or graphics? I was surprised at how complicated it got. I thought it was quite creative.

The music is pretty good. I guess the backgrounds could be better. It really did create some elaborate set up. I can always appreciate that. I think the rating should be higher.

Nice Game

I really enjoyed it. The unique gameplay and interesting level design combine to make this a very enjoyable game to play. I am surprised that the score is not higher, because this ia a very nice game. The graphics were a little bit lacking, and themusic got a little repetitive on some of the levels that take longer, but it was still very nice.

Pretty good

The change gravity idea was the best element in this game and made it more special than other games of this kind.The music sometimes was annoying.And the graphics were always the same grey robots and blocks and it didn't look very nice.Pretty nice game though...

This is pretty good.

I like the premise of the game. It looks like your skills have improved since your "Divine Comedy" game, this one seems to look and feel better.

good game

I found this game to be a lot better than I expected. I almost quit when I started the tutorial - I thought this game was going to be a copy of Red Remover, but it wasn't. The gameplay is exceptional, but I had one small error. To select anything (be it a block, a robot, or a button to turn) I had to click slightly above it to "click it". But overall an exceptional game.
