When it comes to video games, nostalgia is king. Many of us have fond memories of the games we played when we were young, and of those retro aesthetics that captured our imagination and became synonymous with a sense of play. Robbotto, the new 2D co-op adventure from indie studio JMJ Interactive, captures the spirit of retro arcade fun, and is out right now on PC and Nintendo Switch.
The story of Robbotto is simple and engaging: join Robb and Otto, two intrepid maintenance robots, as they travel through a malfunctioning spaces cruiser in an effort to shutdown the machines rampaging through the ship. Controlling either character, the player must master platforming and shooting to conquer each level. Tackle the adventure alone, or with a friend through local co-op. On the couch, in the park, at a bar — the possibilities for solo or co-op play are endless.
“I have put a lot of heart into Robbotto, so to finally be able to release it feels great,” said JMJ Interactive founder and Robbotto developer, Marten Jonsson. “Creating a game is like laying a puzzle, every piece has to fit together, and I can only hope that people will appreciate the complete image. So cheers to the game being released, I hope you have fun!””
- Retro aesthetic: Inspired by retro arcade titles, Robbotto is a nod to classic bar games.
