At first, robot wanted kitty. Then, robot wanted puppy. Next, robot wanted fishy. And now, robot wants ice cream.

Robot should have remained satisfied with kitten.

If you can't figure out how to fly, you're not holding Down long enough while on the ground. Took me a few minutes to figure that one out.

Robot is awfully high maintenance.

Shut up and make me a car, Robot.

Also, don't hit 'r' to try to perform an action, unless that action is "restart everything over again from the beginning" :(

I am a little wary of what robot's intentions may be towards kitty.

And, now, robot wants to deceive human beings.

Oh look ... isn't that cute?

I suppose that, so long as it's not this robot, having a kitty wouldn't be too bad.

I played Robot Wants Kitty when it was first making the rounds, but had no idea the creator had kept pumping out new games in the series. It is fascinating to see what alterations to the game mechanics slip in as the series progresses.

Wow that little maze to get the key for fishy was tough.

It's a robot, not a penguin...

Man, even when I have focus on the game, up and down keys move the web page up and down. Frustrating. Any one else getting that in Chrome?
