[BEGIN TRANSMISSION]

INITIALIZING GREETINGS.TB

…......DONE.

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.

[DIRECTIVE LISTING]

- GATHER GEMS

- GATHER MAGIC BOXES

- LOOK AS AWESOME AS I CAN

THERE IS ALSO AN ATTACHED MESSAGE THAT I SHOULD DELIVER.

[ECHO $DEV_MSG$]

"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 gameplay:

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 combinations!

Thanks for reading this far - we hope you find the game interesting! Feel free to get in touch via Facebook ( http://fb.com/tribotgame ), Twitter ( http://twitter.com/tribotgame ) or email ( tribot@devoidgames.com )

[END ATTACHED MESSAGE]

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?
