Free Puzzle Game Created by the iPad for the iPad

Cargo-Bot is being called the "first game programmed entirely on the iPad using Codea."

However, showing that your code editor works by using it yourself isn't really reassuring. Especially when you are trying to convince people to drop $10 on an app. At least iPad users get a free puzzle game out of the developer's attempt to prove that their pay app is a worthy investment.
