[prMac.com] Granada Hills, California – Sanctuary of Darkness Design today is proud to announce the release of MechBot 1.3, its first game title designed specifically for iPhone and iPod touch devices. MechBot takes place in a machine world miles underground on a far away planet. Due to the destruction of the surface by humans (long time enemies of the machines), the machines were forced underground, and while they once ran on solar power, have adapted to now run on steam power using coal deposits to generate heat and deep-water wells for water. Electricity is generated in the same fashion by boiling water to make steam that in turn runs turbines.
MechBot is a small robot designed to do maintenance tasks. Due to an electric overload, his control rods are shorted out and he at last free to make his escape. It is the job of the player to help MechBot escape from deep underground to the surface. The game is fashioned after the popular Steampunk culture and in that vein, MechBot is completely steam powered. The player must obtain water to fill his reservoirs and then land on portable burners scattered along the way to make steam, which in turn powers the bot. In addition, he must avoid obstacles and traps on the way to the surface and freedom.
