A must have for every puzzle game fan. Excellent graphics, sound and gameplay to create something of a masterpiece.
Kiki the Nano Bot is probably one of the best and most creative 3d puzzle games I have ever played. The storyline is a little bit hard to describe. You control a small robot named Kiki and your ultimate mission is to help repair your maker, whose master control program has been destroyed by a parasitic capacity. Each level consists of a 3 dimensional cube. The aim of each level is to get to the exit by rolling along the walls, jumping on the platforms and moving various objects around.
At first the controls are quite disconcerting and frustrating, but if you practice during the first level, they become a lot easier. You can literally roll anywhere on the cube walls and if there is a platform within jumping distance, you will be able to latch on to it, with the 'camera' following close behind.
It may also take you a while to figure out exactly what to do - the game has a fairly steep learning curve. Fortunately it does offer you some help - if you press ESC while playing and go to HELP you will be told the process which you will need to follow to complete the level. Even with this help the game remains extremely challenging and unless you are an experienced puzzle game player, it won't take many levels to become rather difficult.
To be blunt, the sound effects are superb and the graphics are a stand out. Both surpass any expectations I might have had. This would have been a pretty decent game even if the graphics had only been half as good as they are and the sound had been absent, purely because the game is such a joy to play.
This game is pretty as close to perfect as a game gets – unless you aren’t a puzzle game fan. Highly recommended.
You owe it to yourself to play this game. It's really simple, yet can make you feel stupid. To give you an analogy - it's like beating a water bottle against the wall until it explodes so you can drink it and then later realizing all you have to do is unscrew the top. It has straight to the point directions but in some cases you find yourself not sure what to do. Seriously, it's a great game - the graphics are high quality [reminiscent of GLtron, for those of you who have downloaded that game] and the gameplay is flawless. I recommend it to anyone who has the internet and 4 MB of space on their computer.
Sure, just interacting and solving puzzles to get to the exit would be pretty sweet but add in a 3d environment - the choices and complexity skyrocket. Though the earlier levels are fairly simple, the later ones force you to visualize and think in a 3d setting. Probably the most bizarre reason for this is that the direction of gravity is entirely dependant on your position. Get too carried away thinking of one direction as down and you completely miss obvious solutions. A truly amazing game.

This game is so amazingly powerful! The graphics were awesome (worthy of PS2 possibly), the sound had no glitches (Sony would be proud) and the game play was intricate, without the slightest bit of boringness to it! I swear.. if this game got any better, it would kill you. It would make you burst into flames at its awesomeness! Play it! It is amazing!
Wow! How could anyone think of such a game? Excellent music, graphics and of course a totally new idea. It's sure difficult to tell anything about the game, so you've got to try it to get a feel of how good it is!
The idea is very simple: reach the exit. Yet the game is complex! Confused?? Then just download it and you will know what I mean!
Though I am stuck on level 10, I still think this game is fabulous work. The concept it spectacular: a robot, moving around! And the gameplay is stupendous, I've yet to find a glitch! And it's tricky, then it's not, once you get how to play it's easy, like some puzzle games get. I'd pay for this game, excellent, pure excellence.
Great graphics, excellent gameplay and good sound make this a 9 out of 10.
