independent game developer Fishing Cactus (Epistory – Typing Chronicles, 2016) announced today that Algo Bot, a pan-galactic coding-based adventure puzzle game is available on Steam for $9.99 USD.

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

Algo Bot is available now on Steam for $9.99 USD in English, French, Spanish, German, Russian, Polish and Italian and on sale for $8.99 on launch day.
