About the iBots

The iBots live on a planet far away. A planet made up entirely of machines. During your space travels you've crash landed on their planet. The iBots aren't happy about it. After all, you are not a machine and are not compatible with their architecture.
They see you as a virus. So they've assembled an army dedicated to hunting you down.

iBots aren't very smart. They can move in any direction but they don't know how to avoid obstacles very well. Also, they get angry pretty easily and when they do, they come straight at you ignoring everything in their path.

To survive, you need to trick them into running into the walls. On occasion a power-up will appear that will help you defeat the iBots. Hm... it appears that someone or something on the planet is trying to help you.

About the Game

iBots is a turn based game of strategy. You make a move, then the iBots will make a move, and the cycle continues until all of the iBots are dead or until they catch you. The iBots game supports Apple's Game Center for the iPad. There are 5 leaderboards and 30 achievements to acquire.

iBots was originally written for the 1st gen iPhone way back in 2007 when they first came out. It was programmed in Javascript as a web app and it's still playable using your Safari web browser here.
