This isn't strictly a game but seemed too outlandish not to post...

Roby is a talking, hip-hop dancing robot, who is able to speak words and sentences that the user types on his/her keyboard. He can also repeat anything the user says into the device with a unique robo voice. Talking Roby the Robot is different from other talking apps because it features text to speech in addition to speech detection. It features funny animations of Roby's reactions, and more.
