Ms. Pac-Man

Despite its origins as a bootleg modification for the original Pac-Man, 1981's Ms. Pac-Man eventually became the most successful American-produced arcade game of all time. It's more than just the addition of a bow and mole: Ms. Pac-Man features four different maze layouts and introduces a degree of randomness to the ghosts' patterns.

It's February and that means it's COOKIE SEASON MUCKLEFLUPPERS!

As part of Girl Scout cookie month in Manayunk, we're donating a portion of the sales of our Cookie Season sundae to support local Girl Scout troops.

Cookie Season starts with our own Chocolate Mint Chocolate ice cream and is topped with homemade hot fudge, cookie crumbles, and two Thin Mint cookies. It's everything you could hope for, and, quite possibly, more than you deserve.

We'll be using half of WALL-O-VISION this week to stream Awesome Games Done Quick, a wonderful charity event focused around video game speedrunning.

The speedruns are streaming non-stop day and night, but we're particularly excited for Crypt of the Necrodancer on Thursday at 6:19pm and Super Mario Odyssey on Saturday at 7:49pm.

On the other half of WALL-O-VISION you can play Strider, because anyone can Strider.

In this episode of Tubby Talk, Terry, Steve, and Chris talk about the vast world of failed video game mascot games. This dark path takes us to some unexpected places, ranging from manufactured "cool" characters to blatant advertisements to lifeforms composed entirely of balls.

Topics discussed include: Plok, Earthworm Jim, Boogerman, Zero the Kamikaze Squirrel, Gex, Bubsy, Bonk, Rocky Rodent, and so very many more.

All of us here at Tubby Robot hope that Santa Karnov was good to you over the holiday!

We're taking a one-week break for the holiday season: the shop will be closed starting today until January 2nd, 2019. See you in the new year!

December 13, 2018

It's mid-December, so that means it's time for our limited-edition holiday menu items to make an appearance!

This year we're bringing back our homemade Pizzelle Waffle Cones, which are seasoned with anise to evoke the classic Italian cookie.

We also have Peppermint White Chocolate ice cream, which now contains both white chocolate striping AND crushed candy canes.

Supplies are limited for all of our specialty items; we hold no responsibility for crushed dreams caused by dawdling.

Eagle-eyed patrons of our shop may notice a new Easter egg as part of their ice cream experience: we're now appending a random zany video game quote to the bottom of every receipt.

If you have any favorites you'd like to see added to our list, let us know!

November 24, 2018

It's one of our favorite days of the year: Small Business Saturday!

We're selling hand-packed pints of our homemade ice cream at a special price of $6. Load up your freezer so you don't have to leave the house when it gets colder out!

November 22, 2018

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! We're closed today, but we'll be back to our regular schedule tomorrow. Eat heartily!
