About

If you wanted to create a lifting machine, what would you do? You could use the human arm as a guide, but how would you copy the complex array of bones, muscles and tendons? Try to control Shifty the Robot, a machine with two joints that are controlled by pistons and three controls, and see just how difficult it is to truly reproduce a human joint. The aim of the game is to make Shifty the Robot move and dispose of the nuclear waste containers in the quickest time possible. See if you can move all of the bins in the fastest time and make it into the Hall of Fame.
