Fun but needs a fix
I had this game when it was just on my iBook, and still enjoy it. Robots, flying saucers and giant brain aliens - what's not to like? But the iPod/iPad version needs a little fix. The computer version gives the option of controlling Otto from his POV, not just the camera's, and that's actually easier - I'd like that option back. But I could live without it if not for the lag in the POV shift when Otto changes direction. It takes a second or two to shift, making things tricky, particularly on level 3 - still not able to get thru that one yet because of the POV delay, and normally that's an easy one. A couple seconds, but we all know what can happen in that time - zap, boom, die. So if we could get a fix for that, it'd be helpful.

Still great
Played this on an old laptop and thought it was going to be hard on here w/o cheats but was a nice difficulty. I had just as much fun as the computer. I would HIGHLY recommend this game to anyone who wants a nice retro style 3D adventure game. Runs fast with highest graphics on an iPad 2 so it should run well on any iPad and and iPhone newer than a 3Gs.

A Classic!
I have fond memories of the original Mac version back when I was a kid, and it's great to see this game is alive and well on the iOS after over a decade! Pangea's Brian Greenstone considers this to be his magnum opus. I'd have to agree with him, as it is a perfect blend of action, exploration, and platform hopping. It's probably Pangea's most unpredictable game, with new challenges and enemies around every corner. If you miss games like Bugdom or Nanosaur but don't have an old PowerPC Mac to play them, Otto Matic for the iOS is the perfect alternative to jump into Pangea's action-adventure genre.

Great Game if you played it before
When I was little this was my most favorite game of all time (on a computer). I can see why people complain about the control layout but to me, this game brings back memories. If you're like me and played this when you were little, on the computer and loved it, get the game. If not, I wouldn't recommend it.
