So, you've had a bad day at work. The coffee machine has broken down again, the cafeteria is only serving yesterday's black pudding with hog fat vinaigrette and your boss has chewed you out because the company server is down and he hasn't been able to get his daily fix of JayIsGames. Well, spare a thought for Anbot, the protagonist in Pencil Kids' latest point-and-click adventure game.
Reliable and trustworthy Anbot has fronted up for work as usual and found himself injured because of someone else's negligence. In a split second he kisses goodbye to his dream holiday and knows he has to flee the factory floor, because robots don't get worker's compensation; damaged robots are swiftly annihilated to maintain efficiency and economics. Using your mouse, help Anbot to escape the factory and its destructive OH&S policies by clicking on objects and locations, solving puzzles and outsmarting giant robot-monsters.
It's always a good day when Robin Vencel, the creator of flash game gems we all love like A Dralien Day and many more, releases yet another appealing game to brighten our otherwise mundane working lives. He's made our day yet again with Anbot, an unfortunate robot who knows what a bad day at work is really like.
Anbot is a simple, short and sweet frolic that places you in the role of over-worked robot needing to escape, and along with its lovely diversionary qualities, may just serve to remind us that no matter how bad a day at work/school we might have, it could be worse.
