The Legend of ROOMBA

by limmmmm - Jam Entry

Saving the world is messy business and you're here to clean it up. Take control of a hero's ROOMBA and.... vacuum. Watch out for your battery, dirt cup, and home furnishings while you shoot for the high score.


- reduced sizes of physics bodies for both the player and the plant. should be a bit easier to move around now.

Hilarious but frustrating to control. My high score is 57. I took the bar in the top left as a challenge (thought it would be a special of some kind), so I was pretty disappointed to see what happened when it did fill it up. Especially because it's not easy to fill it up.

Fun Game! Audio is a bit choppy, and i like the referencing to The Legend of Zelda.

Nice theme, always wondered who cleaned up the rooms when Link leaves them.

Interesting! Forget to charge every time.
The house plant's physics collider is too big.

Pretty cool! :)

I also did a Roomba inspired Game :) but your game has way better graphics and sound :)

I enjoyed this!

I liked this a lot. Got 55 on my second try. Controls were fun, and I figured out that arrows hurt me after a while. I wasn't sure what the bar at the left vs. the hearts at right were. I liked that you could recharge, and shove plants and stuff out of the way with repeated collisions. Neat idea, great looking, and perfect for the theme.

I really liked this, way more that I should have for a game about a vacuum. Well done.

I love the idea of Link having a Roomba! Pretty fun, but vacuum audio loop sounds choppy and the hatboxes on the couch and plants can be a bit unfair sometimes

Pretty fun. Although being stopped dead by a wall when hitting it in a very shallow angle is kind of annoying, making it slide at small angles would be nice.

Great job! I always wanted to be a modern vacuum, and this game fulfilled that fantasy!

Some background music would have bee nice.

This took a few tries to get down, but it was fun. It reminds me of watching my Roobma bomb around the room running into things. I am a much worse Roomba than an actual Roomba.

Great game with that "one more go" feel. Very well made and looks cool.

Dec 18, 2016 @ 6:33pm

72! I like the fact that you can't turn the roomba until it hits something.

Pretty decent. Frustrating controls. Looped, non-looping audio ended up being annoying.
