Gothenburg-based JMJ Interactive has released their retro-style 2D arcade co-op adventure Robbotto on Steam for PC and Nintendo Switch.
Inspired by retro arcade titles, Robbotto is a nod to classic bar games. Control either of two intrepid maintenance robots (single player or co-op) as they platform and shoot their way through a malfunctioning spaces cruiser in an effort to shutdown the machines rampaging through the ship.
“I feel that many games these days focus heavily on online gaming, and too much on skill,” says JMJ Interactive founder and Robbotto developer Mårten Jonsson. “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 Robbotto as I had making it.”
