In GravBot by Team Phobic, the story behind how an emoticon-displaying tv with wheels can manipulate its personal field of gravity and why he's collecting batteries is left up in the air. But honestly, who cares when you're having this much fun trying to help this cute balancing box to get his job done?

As you'd expect from the title, your little robot can manipulate gravity to make his way around each of the game's maze-like structures, filled with lasers, deadly robots and traps ready to force you to restart your progress. Careful manipulation of the gravity can help to circumvent these dangers and the small amount of air-movement and smooth acceleration of GravBot prevents players from cheesing their way past obstacles while remaining responsive for tricky maneuvers.

Once you're beyond the game's set of training levels, GravBot quickly settles down in to a fairly complex sequence of areas that require you to unravel the best possible way to reach each improbably placed battery. Purchasing additional levels adds more graphics and music to the game itself, but the overall theme remains one of a crazy industrial complex.

Right from the outset, GravBot is an easy title to enjoy thanks to the charming expressions on the little robot and the clever and complex physics based puzzles that only get more dastardly as you progress. Definitely take some time to check out the free levels, but beware as resisting the temptation to buy the remaining levels may be hard once you do.
