Roboto is live in the Android Marketplace and in the iTunes store. In fact, we are the iPad game of the week !

In addition to that, we actually jumped into the TOP TEN!  No marketing, no advertising, just our game submitted to the App Store.  We are more than shocked, we never thought we would get anywhere near this ranking.  OMG!

It’s truly flattering to be surrounded by such esteemed company: Angry Brids, Cut The Rope, Fruit Ninja, and Sid Meier’s Pirates.  That’s our little game, Roboto, sitting in at number 7.

On top of that, the user reviews are really good.  There’s a few complaints about frame rates on older devices (sorry about that guys, but we need the extra horsepower to push this kind of gameplay), but overall the reviews are very positive.  It’s a little scary to put something out there and have it scrutinized so closely by so many people, especially considering we put so much of ourselves into the game.  Now that we’re here it is extremely exciting and you guys are making this a great experience.

For you Android players out there, we are working with Google to fix the download issues.  Please don’t knock us for this!  We’re doing the best we can but the downloading system is a little out of our control!

Here’s what you guys are saying:

“I was looking for a great, awesome, fun to play platform / jump&run game for a while – I FOUND IT!!!! This game is awesome, nice graphics, easy controls (don’t know what another reviewer had against them) and extremely fun to play!! PS: using an iPad one to play!” -by myKlaro
