iRobot releases Roomba Revenge on the iPhone

iRobot, the company behind the Roomba (you know, the robot vacuum that cleans your filthy floors so you don’t have to) has just launched a game for the iPhone – Roomba Revenge.

Danger, excitement, challenges, and dust. The Dust Bunnies have taken over and it’s up to Roomba to clean up this mess!

Control the world-famous iRobot Roomba vacuum as he battles his way through 20 levels, riddled with filth-spreading, ill-tempered Dust Bunnies. Enter Revenge Mode to suck them up and reveal the treasures they hold captive.

If you’re wondering whether iRobot is planning on branching off into game development, it appears the answer is no. According to TechCrunch:

“No, iRobot isn’t becoming a gaming company,” writes media rep Jennifer Kohanim. “They did this just because having fun and making cool stuff is part of their DNA. In fact, the idea for a game featuring the world-famous robot was born via a casual text-message conversation between two iRobot employees.”

What would be cool is if iRobot came out with an app that’d allow you to remotely control your Roomba via an iDevice. Just imagine how much fun you’ll actually have vacuuming your floors. But alas, Roomba’s Revenge will have to do for the time being. The game sells for $0.99 and a free lite version is also available for download. Check out the video trailer of R.R after this space.
