  • Summary: Players take on the role of the young hero Bolt, a quick thinking agent who has discovered some friendly, highly advanced robots called "Tokobots" during his explorations of ancient ruins. With the help of the loyal Tokobots, Bolt will reveal mysteries and save the world from a horrible plot, as the Tokobots faithfully follow him on his journey, helping him to avoid obstacles, traps and enemies, by working together to create "team combos". During these actions, the Tokobots team up to take on different combinations in order to simulate everything from a ladder that Bolt climbs to wings that allow him to fly over large obstacles. The player will have to use strategy and skill to create these team combos in order to complete each level and succeed in the game. [Tecmo] Expand

  1. Tecmo has shown once again that it doesn't take mega licenses or millions of dollars to make a great video game. [Jan 2006, p.50]
  2. Video games work best when you never once question your suspension of disbelief, and Tokobot scores high marks with its winning charm and ease of gameplay.
  3. Although there are times where you may just smash the PSP out of frustration (I bit my PSP), the game of course offers very many puzzles that will keep you thinking and will be more than rewarding on its part.
  4. But if you're looking for a somewhat new angle on the old platforming formula with a little taste of Pikmin thrown in, then Tokobot is worth checking out.
  5. Tecmo produces a light-hearted and quirky action platformer that charms us with its simple but highly strategic combat and adorable characters.
  6. It's good to see developers trying something new but this is more of a solid template for a sequel than a top game in it's own right. [Mar 2006, p.84]
  7. 50
    Divested of any real spark, Tokobot runs out of steam quickly, mires itself in mediocrity, and never manages to rise above it.
