Solve physics puzzles using cranes, switches, teleporters, and boxes to rescue your girlfriends from certain doom! The Story Mode features 25 Levels spread across multiple environments such as Frobot’s Disco and the Microshaft Lab.

Special Powers

Each one of Frobot’s girlfriend imbues him with a special power in the battle against evil. You must rescue them all in order to restore your powers and destroy the mysterious enemy who has captured them!

Dynomine

A remote mine that can be used to destroy enemies and obstacles.

Robo Hustle

A short speed boost useful for evading enemy attacks.

Jive Stalker

The first few videos I seen of this game looked uninspired and pretty boring. It's polished up pretty nicely and I like the humor. I might give this one a try now. That tutorial looks fun.

Looks much better than it did in the last few videos. I'm glad they changed that horrid music =]

I'm skipping the demos for now, but I'm pretty excited to see how the final game turns out. I've had my eye on this one since it was announced. I hope it turns out as well as I think it will.

I actually enjoyed the demo. Very cool gameplay and a lot of variety. The 70's groovy theme is cool too. I'm thinking the Wii controls will make it even more intuitive.

Nice to see something from Wii Play being expanded on. Nintendo comes up with all these ideas for how the Wiimote could be used, but then hardly any developers take those ideas and run with them. I'll try out the PC demo. Looks interesting.

No, thanks.
I'll download the demo and see what I think of it. I DO love Wii Tanks (not to mention the LoZ! :D).

As I thought the demo is confirmation that my PC sucks and I'll be getting it when it comes out on Wii.

What are the system requirements for the PC demo? Is a Notebook with Windows XP SP3, Pentium IV 2,66GHz, 512MB and integrated ATI Radeon IGP 345M enough?

Edit: Apparently not. The program doesn't seem to like the graphics card. I have graphic glitches in the third room. Too bad. At least the uninstaller works perfectly fine. Phew!
