About the gameMicrochip Monsters is a casual/arcade hybrid game with a futuristic vibe. 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.
It has a sort of Peggle-like or "Freaky-Futuristic Pinball with explosions" feel - watch the video to get an idea of the gameplay!
Inspired by the classic bit Generations games for the Gameboy Advance, Microchip Monsters is a nod to those addictive retro games.
Includes pre-designed levels and a special "Rogue" mode with procedurally (randomly) generated levels 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. Check it out on the AndModPlug page.
There's also a FREE version to try out!

Be sure to go through the in-game tutorial, but here's a more thorough explanation of the controls & game mechanics.
Game strategy involves bouncing the probe off walls, anticipating "virus" movement and Blackhole/Wormhole gravity effects. Many stages require a keen geometrical sense and involve several of these effects to get the probe in position to destroy an elusive virus.
Note: the minimalist design of the microchips actually draws inspiration from a VLSI design course way, way back in my university days. :)
