  • Summary: The action combines familiar arcade shooting gameplay with a unique possibility to switch gravity. Colorful graphics appeal to both younger and adult players while first-class music by Simon Viklund makes the adventure feel even more epic.

    Robonauts is one of the most fun games I have ever played on the Switch. It is very accessible, vibrant, and great for gamers of all skill sets. Also, its character designs are really fascinating and, in some cases, adorable at the same time.

    Under its early bird sale price, Robonauts is one that you should pick up. The developers should consider retaining its initial price point as it looks to stand out in a sea of quality Switch indie titles hitting the system at the moment, but if you do want that hard-hitting, swear-inducing arcade shooter that just about everyone loves, you'd be doing yourself a favour in checking Robonauts out.

    Robonauts reworks the conventions of a classic arcade shooter by pairing the timeless genre with basic platform game action. The pick up and play nature also remains intact. With two difficulties and some challenging objectives, this game is no pushover. Unfortunately, one shortcoming of arcade shooters is often the repetition that comes with eliminating wave after wave of enemies, and Robonauts is not exempt from this. Still, it is a well-crafted Nintendo Switch eShop game that could provide fun play sessions in-between bigger releases, and even a new co-op experience for family and friends.

    Robonauts was a fun game with some glaring faults. As a single-player game, it really isn't that strong. The mechanics shine but it lacks a meaty experience to enjoy. Where it makes up for this deficiency is in its multiplayer offerings, which provide a lot of excitement. It changes up the campaign maps in a significant matter as well as offering a fun time anywhere you are. If you are up for that, then Robonauts could be the experience you’re looking for.

    What Robonauts lacks in charisma and story-telling it more than makes up with its gameplay. Intense, fast paced and with a demanding difficulty level, Robonauts will keep players close to it for a long time and its recipe of adding platforming action to a shoot and run game works like a charm.

    Robonauts is a game that knows precisely what it is: a classic arcade-inspired shooter with unique mechanics to keep it fresh.

    Early on Robonauts is a nice little blaster, but a rote mission structure and a headache inducing core mechanic let it down.

    Neat little shooter. It was free for a while, so I decided to check it out, and it's good fun! Played it solo, but you're better off with a friend.
