Roboto is an action-packed side scrolling platformer from the crew over at Fenix Fire that will be making it’s way onto Android very soon. Build with Unity3D, Fenix Fire has a graphical look similar to Samurai II: Vengeance for Android Tegra 2 devices with the whole cartoon-ish look to it but in 3D and it pulls it off just as good too.
The game combines action-platformer gaming with some physics and a touch of gravity reversal just to throw you for a loop while you are playing. Every time you pass through the blue sections of each stage, gravity will reverse and instead you will be running upside down on the top of the level. The goal of the game is to find your mystery robo-girl who will hopefully not reject you once you find her.
Features (if similar to the online version):
- 30 Levels
- 6 Different Weapons
- Epic end boss battles
- Stunning Physics
- Character Upgrades
- Great 3D graphics and effects
As you may have guessed from the features list’s title, there is an online version available for you to try out over at Fenix Fire’s mini-site for Roboto which you can get to here. You will need to have the Unity WebPlayer installed in your browser to play the online version. No exact date as to when this will be available for Android, all we know is that it is ‘coming soon’ which could be anytime. Until then, check out the screenshots and the official trailer we have for you to enjoy and tide you over till it is available.
Official press release below as well for your reading enjoyment. If you have finished Cordy then you’ll be looking forward to this platformer.
