Hey! To start this decade right, we believe Newgrounds should be ad-free for EVERYONE. For this to work, we need people who have the means to become paying supporters. For just $3 per month or $25 for the year, you can help this happen and get some nice perks!

For the month of January we have disabled ads on all E-M content. We need 194 people to reach our January goal of 3,000 active supporters. If we hit that, we'll continue with a new goal in February!

Please check out our Supporter Upgrade and consider coming aboard!

Short but good. Puzzles weren't too difficult. Just when I thought it was going to get hard it ended. But still enjoyed it.

Great ending. Very true to life.

that ending...was just...sad. poor little roomba ;(

Restart button doesn't work.

Dividebyzer0team responds:

Sounds like an unnoticed bug!(

Can you please specify, where/when restart button doesn't work?

I was having fun until the level with the high pitch ringing. Having to figure your way out of that level is horrid.

Dividebyzer0team responds:

Well, yeah, in some rare cases that bug can appear. It seems that it depends on computer performance.
We are working on it!

Some sort of bug where the vacuum items dissapear turning it into a pixel hunt. Currently I'm at the park with a fountain. I have found a hatch and a smartphone, an automatic gate, and I have annoyed a couple out on a date with the lights. This seems cool though and speaks about how we throw away so much good stuff that still works perfectly fine just so we can have the newest. If everyone would settle for living in their means, how much debt could be erased?

Dividebyzer0team responds:

So, the last thing you need to do on this level is opening the door. To do that, drop smartphone in a tech tunnel (be sure to remove a hatch!). It will trigger a service bot, who open the door for you.
