GREETINGS! I AM TRIBOT. ACCORDING TO MY SPECIFICATIONS, I'M A
CLASS 2 RETRACTABLE LEG BALANCE ROBOT, S/N#3958388. THEY TOLD ME I
SHOULD SHOW MY DIRECTIVES TO YOU.
- GATHER GEMS
- GATHER MAGIC BOXES
- LOOK AS AWESOME AS I CAN
THERE IS ALSO AN ATTACHED MESSAGE THAT I SHOULD DELIVER.
"Hey there! We're deVoid Games, indie developers of TriboT!
First of all, sorry for all the screaming in Tribot's log - we had
to cut off all lowercase characters to fit the hat coupling code.
We told him it's for achieving "screaming speeds", but his pun
module is still kinda buggy.
TriboT is our brand new game for iOS devices. In the game, you
pilot a three-wheeled bot running through several environments
(each with its own soundtrack), avoiding obstacles and gathering
gems and mystical magic boxes! And it's retailing at the infamously
low price of US$0.99!
Here's the AppStore link:
Also, here's the official trailer that shows some of the
And a few cool screenshots to go with it:
The road is bumpy and full of holes, so here's the catch: you
can go over a hole with a single wheel, but two or more wheels on
holes make you crash. Therefore, you must use your retractable legs
to work your way around them and get as far as you can!
There are upgrades and utilities to help you along the way, and
a ton of customization options - totalling over 400 possible
Thanks for reading this far - we hope you find the game
interesting! Feel free to get in touch via Facebook (

I MUST GO NOW. MY PILOTS NEED ME. APPARENTLY THEY DECIDED TO
DROP ME IN A CONTAINER FROM MILES HIGH IN THE AIR BECAUSE SOME
OTHER BOT CRASHED WHILE TRYING NOT TO HIT A COCKROACH. THIS IS
OBVIOUSLY SOME KIND OF MISTAKE.
WAIT - WHY IS MY VERTICAL SPEED COUNTER INCREASING?
