Lost Robot is a new iOS game about — you guessed it — a lost robot. The eponymous automaton moves about to and fro with its trusty wheel. And it's your job to guide it toward its destination in every level of the game. As relayed by Pocket Gamer, Lost Robot is the debut iOS release of a former Nokia employee named Benjamin Hald. Hald describes his brainchild as "a mixture of arcade, action and puzzle games." Moreover, he says that one of his friends has favorably described Lost Robot as a V8-powered Contre Jour. Indeed, Lost Robot shares Contre Jour's basic gameplay mechanic of collecting three of a certain kind as a level-by-level challenge. If you can't see the video embedded above, please click here. In the case of Lost Robot, you have to collect the three green gears in each level. To do so, you must be able to manipulate the different levers, bridges, and other thingamajigs for the robot's safe and passage. Lost Robot for iPhone and Lost Robot HD for iPad are available now in the App Store for $1.99 and $2.99, respectively. Want another physics-based puzzler to lose yourself in? If your answer is a resounding yes, then look no further than the newly released (or should I say newly found?) Lost Robot.
