About Replica Island
Replica Island is a free, open-source game for Android devices. It stars the Android robot, who happens to have a pretty devastating butt-stomp attack. With 40 levels, an intriguing story, and high-end 2D graphics, Replica Island is a unique entry to the Android game catalog.

Professor Kabochanomizu needs your help. He has spent his life hunting for a mysterious object of amazing power called The Source, but in his old age he is now too feeble to continue the search alone. So he has created you--a small green robot with rockets for feet--to carry on where he left off. Your mission is to find and secure The Source before the evil Rokudou Corporation does.

But not everything is as it seems. The Source lies somewhere at the center of a bizarre island, protected by strange architecture and stranger creatures. Generations of adventurers have tried and failed to find it; this is no walk in the park, even for a flying robot. And at least one Rokudou agent does not seem like such a bad person--in fact, she seems happy to help.

What is The Source? Can you survive the island long enough find it? Who can you trust? The answers lie in the depths of Replica Island.
