A second game from the creator of Sweep Man,Â TomTom (Poppy F) has just been releasedÂ Giant Metal Robot. Adopting yet again gorgeous, retro, pixel art-y style, this time around it isÂ â€˜LisaLisaâ€™ and her dog â€˜Pinkieâ€™ who are attacked by wicked skeletons. Â Your job is to crush every skeletons within the time limit but being careful not to killÂ â€˜LisaLisaâ€™ or â€˜Pinkieâ€™ or throw them off the roof.
What is wonderful in the games byÂ TomTom is that they are simple creations where most effort has been put into the visual elements. Each game is a form of a comic strip, a simple idea that evolved into an interactive game. It’s hard to call these just games as in their own right they are very personal exploratory creations. It is best to think of them as designer toys, keychains, mini apps to enrich your iPhone app collection. Collect them all and you win – pure joy.
