Deep inside the Europa, a pan-galactic colonization ship, the sleeping crew dreams about their new life on the far side of the galaxy.

But there can be no rest for Algo Bot, a service droid working on the junk deck. When a routine recycling mission with cantankerous line manager PAL goes horribly wrong, crisis strikes at the very heart of the Europa.

Unless PAL and Algo Bot can restore the Europa's systems and recover the shipboard AI quickly, there'll be no waking up for anyone.

As the player, you will take the role of the operator and use a visual programming language to issue a sequence of commands to Algo Bot. Will you manage to solve all the puzzles?

In Algo Bot, players control the movements of a lovable but down-on-its-luck robot, using basic programming skills to solve puzzles. Set aboard the pan-galactic colonization ship Europa, over 46 levels, players must devise algorithms to carefully control Algo Bot’s path, borrowing concepts from the programming world - including variables and subroutines.

In the rich single-player story campaign, Algo Bot meets PAL, a cantankerous and aloof line manager, and Gemini, the cheerfully eccentric shipboard computer. When a routine recycling job goes horribly wrong, Algo Bot and this unlikely band of heroes must work together to save the sleeping colonists on board the Europa.

Algo Bot is a unique futuristic adventure puzzle game, delivering a one-of-a-kind programming gameplay experience, teaching basic programming concepts in a fun and entertaining way.

Algo Bot’s features include:

  • A bittersweet story with two lovable heroes
  • Over 40 programming puzzles set in 5 unique environments
  • Easy to understand for beginners, but difficult enough for puzzle enthusiasts
  • Play with various programming concepts
  • Backtrack to already cleared levels to optimize your solutions
  • Stunning 3D graphics
  • The British Touch: we’ve teamed up with Epistory’s writer, Joseph J Clark, to give Algo Bot a light storyline with a touch of British humor
