JMJ Interactive has announced that upcoming retro platformer Robbotto will be available on the Nintendo Switch eShop next week.
Inspired by Bubble Bobble, the arcade and NES classic that actually made its way to the NES Mini, Robbotto is a retro-based, co-op arcade platformer in which you must travel through a malfunctioning star cruiser. You'll be doing this as Robb and Otto, two intrepid maintenance robots, in an attempt to shut down all of the robots and machines rampaging through the ship.
The game aims to provide players with a simplistic, retro feel that takes away the complexities of recent gaming trends. “I feel that many games these days focus heavily on online gaming, and focus too much on complex mechanics,” explains Robbotto developer, Mårten Jonsson. “That’s fun and all, but there is always going to be a need for classic gaming with fun, straightforward gameplay. I’ve put a lot of effort into this game in order to provide the kind of gaming experience I enjoyed when I was a kid, and I hope people will have as much fun playing it as I had making it.”
Here's what you can expect to find in the game:
- Classic Arcade Action
- 20 Different Enemies
- 10 Huge Bosses
- Single Player or Local Co-op
Robbotto arrives on the Nintendo eShop on 16th August, priced at £8.99 / $9.99. Do you like what you see? Let us know if you'll be picking this one up with a comment.
