iRobot Roomba, the world-famous vacuum cleaning robot, is going for the iPhone users with a brand new game – Roomba Revenge. Your mission is to guide the beloved robot (I know I love my Roomba), while he’s battling the evil Dust Bunnies, gobbling up dirt, dust and debris until the floor’s absolutely spotless. However, you shouldn’t get too close to the nasty bunnies or they’ll give Roomba a stomping and thrown down even more dirt. Except if you enter the Revenge mode, when Roomba becomes invincible and can gobble up the Dust Bunnies as they try to run and hide from his powerful suction.
Other characters you’ll encounter are cats that slow you down and there’s also the human owner who picks up the robot to get him out of trouble and takes him to rooms he can’t otherwise get into.
It’s a fun little title that costs $0.99. I would expect it to be free, though. Then again, a portion of the game proceeds is going to SPARK, iRobot’s education initiative to encourage students in STEM fields…
