The early morning car ride, the smelly waiting room, and scary needles are the worst part of a trip to the doctor. Let's face it; robots have it easy when it comes to medical care! Defective 'droids get their medicine in quite a shocking way in the mobile word game RoboFlu. You think electroshock therapy wouldn't be the best method of healing, but those viruses need to be purged somehow, right?
To remove sick "cells" from the robots, tap letters on the grid and combine regular blocks with infected blocks to spell words, then tap "submit". Valid words are instantly zapped away, curing these 'bots one shock at a time. There's no countdown clock or anything, so you can take your time spelling bigger and better-scoring words. Once you clear the infection, your next patient will come in, sick and ready for you to work your magic!
RoboFlu doesn't offer any crazy extra modes outside of the main game, but with multiple levels of difficulty and a large dictionary of recognizable words, it's easy to play until your brain gives out. The adorable (yeah, I said it) robots are another excuse to keep playing, as you'll always wonder what the next one will look like. An easy interface and plenty of challenge, RoboFlu has all the elements that make up a great mobile word game!
