"Microchip Monsters has a striking minimalist visual style... pretty hardcore stuff!" - IndieGames.com
"Have to say it's wicked fun, give it a chance." - neogaf
HAS STAGES 1 TO 35 FROM THE FULL VERSION OF THE GAME (FULL VERSION HAS 60 STAGES, INCLUDING A BOSS FIGHT!)
Microchip Monsters is a unique game with a futuristic vibe. Part arcade, part puzzler, part casual. Viral invaders have taken over the Bots’ microchips and destroyed them. But the last Bot has come back as a ghost looking for revenge. Help him launch torpedoes and lay mines to destroy the virus infestation.
FULL VERSION WITH NO ADS & MORE ROGUE STAGES AVAILABLE!
Inspired by the classic Bit Generations games for the Gameboy Advance, Microchip Monsters is a nod to those addictive retro games. Gameplay has some Peggle-like elements, or freaky-futuristic pinball, minimalist presentation like pewpew or tron - but you'll have to try the game to see how it plays!
Includes pre-designed levels and a special "Rogue" mode with procedurally (randomly) generated levels. This FREE version has a small sampling of the Rogue stages - upgrade to the full version for nearly infinite replay value!
Note to other indie Android developers: this is the third Android game I've made using my port of libmodplug to Android (AndModPlug) to play MOD/XM tracker music. It's free and it's pretty cool. Check out the website to learn more.
Special thanks to tracker artist Mr.Lou for permission to use his song "Electric Memories" in the game!

More info about the controls:
FIRST DIRECTION TOUCH
Touch the screen the first time to set the direction of the probe (Photon Torpedo!). It will launch from the little green robot up toward the touch point. But very quickly it will start bouncing off silicon walls, bending around black holes & being sucked into worm holes.
MINE LAYING TOUCHES
Tap ANYWHERE ON THE SCREEN after that (up to 5 times) and the probe will lay mines that explode after one second. Use timing, great aim and your eye for geometry to make the probe fly where you want, drop a mine and blow up the pesky enemy!
Disclaimer: this game doesn't have zombies or cute cuddly characters, it is pure retro fun not a port from the iphone, dedicated to Android, watch the ghost robot dance (bob his head) to the music as he shoots wave after wave of invaders. Yes, black holes are normally in space, but this is a fantasy mash up game. Great colorful game for a mid sized tablet (Kindle Fire, Galaxy Tab). All original techno soundtrack. Games should have music. End of stream of consciousness section...
