Hate dust? Love robot vacuum cleaners? Then you'll probably adore a silly game called Roomba Revenge — because it challenges you to assault as many dust bunnies as possible by controlling an iRobot Roomba vaccuum.
The full version of Roomba Revenge will set you back a buck and you can purchase it in the Apple App Store.
The game is pretty basic.
You steer an angry Roomba vacuum cleaner in order to suck up as much dust as you can. You get to do this for 20 levels worth of dust bunny assasinating missions full of achievements, sneaky cats who take a ride on the Roomba, tricky gates and furniture items which block your paths, and a ticking clock.
Overall, the game's a pretty neat little time waster — though for a dollar I'd expect more levels. (This issue could be fixed with an update, of course.)
It's worth noting that you can try the first five levels of Roomba Revenge for free by downloading the "lite" version of the game from the Apple App Store. That should be enough to give you a decent idea regarding whether or not you'll enjoy the paid app.
