<<set $robot = 4>>This robot is creeping me out, what do I do about it?\n\nThis one is a little tricky. Wherever you go, the robot turns to face you. But it does have a blind spot--directly behind it.\n\nYou can't run around to the blind spot because once the robot spots you, it will keep turning to face you. You need to teleport to the blind spot. You remember how to teleport, right?\n\nOkay. When you're not around, the robot is facing south. So you need to teleport to the north end of the room. Save your game, open your save file, and change your LOCATION to 2,6. Load your save. You'll now be able to turn off the robot. (Alternatively, add "deactivated robot" to your ACCOMPLISHMENTS.) Make sure to investigate the room afterward.\n\n[[Back|Contents]]
