Robbotto is fun… when played with a friend. Solo is less enjoyable in the long-run, as the substandard hit detection comes to the forefront more. With things such as uneven difficulty, missed achievements, the odd glitch here or there, and more, Robbotto is just okay. At $9.99, you really best make sure you have someone play with.
All in all, Robbotto is a decent but unfulfilling attempt at trying to replicate the whimsical Bubble Bobble. Robb’s jumping is too floaty and makes certain levels and situations more difficult than they should be. The charge shot moves slowly and can only be fired one at a time and is frustratingly coupled with extremely short range on the water hose.
The simple chiptunes will have you longing to dust off your Commodore 64 or ZX Spectrum, while its 20 enemy types (and ten bosses) do a decent job of keeping you on your toes as the difficulty starts to ramp up. It’s just a shame starting a co-op campaign will wipe your single-player progress and vice-versa. It’s a bizarrely backwards issue in an otherwise positive retro celebration.
