RobotoNext up is another great little mini-game from GlobZ that offers addictive gameplay with the press of only a single button. Rotobo is a top-down platformer where the object is to find and land on a green ore block hidden in each level through a succession of jumps.

When each level begins, Rotobo will continuously rotate its head. When the eyes are pointing in the direction you wish to jump, simply click the mouse button—alternatively, you may press the space bar. The longer you hold the button down the higher (and farther) Rotobo will jump, up to a maximum height. Release the button to land.

There are power-ups hidden throughout each level, and completing a level under a minute awards a time bonus. Complete all levels for a high score.

The only problem that I noticed with the game is when you want to start a new game after finishing, or losing, a previous one. The Flash app seems to get stuck re-loading itself. So, if you want to play again, you will likely have to reload the window manually.

Rotobo is yet another charming, simple one-button mini-game from the very talented folks at GlobZ. Click.

This game is fun, but it seems that you need to be really precise on your jumping to not fall off. I keep getting stuck on the fourth level.

I was having the same problem (in fact I always died in level 4, as well), but then I realised that if click/press space whilst in the air, you land immediately. Made it much easier as I didn't have to be as precise on apogees, etc.--I could just press space when I was over the spot on which I wanted to land.

I was doing pretty good until I started noticing that in almost every level after the second there is a bonus heart. It occurred to me that these meant big points in the long run ((5xno of hearts)xno of games). When I started hunting I started losing

Once I figured out that if you hold down the button you jump higher I got a lot further

I don't understand why they don't let you control the direction the robot is looking. The jump mechanic alone is worth the game. Making the player unable to direct the robot is just irritating.
