As the floppy-eyed Professor, you're tasked with defending Mechopolis from the Iandian siege. Buckling up in the Professor's experimental defence vehicle, you tap to blast Iandian forces as they stream across the screen. Additionally, tilts of the handset move the vehicle left and right allowing you to manoeuvre around incoming enemies."
