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?

FEATURES

  • Bittersweet story with two lovable heroes
  • Over 40 programming puzzles set in 5 unique environments to explore
  • Easy to get for beginners and hard enough for puzzle experts
  • Play with various programming concepts (yes it’s cool)
  • Backtrack to already cleared levels to optimize solutions
  • Stunning 3D graphics
  • The British Touch: once again, we’ve teamed up with Epistory’s writer, Joseph J Clark, to give Algo Bot a light storyline with a touch of British humor.
