Description

Control a droid on the planet Andromadous trying to herd Ramboids (alien sheep) into a teleporter. First the droid has to travel through a chamber filled with constantly moving Ramboids. Then the Ramboids must be herded towards the teleport receptor in a particular order. As well as the droid's standard movement mode, it can also tunnel or dig through the caverns. In later levels, the cavern designs become more complex and moving blocks create further problems.

Trivia

Sequel

Clive Brooker wrote the sequel One Hand and His Droid II for ZX Spectrum, unaware that it had already lost its market share to more advanced computers at the time. Because of this, he was turned down by several publishers after he finished the game in April 1991. About ten years later, 05 August 2001, he released the game for free on his website.
