Gato Roboto is a retro production of metroidvania type. The title was developed by an independent studio Doinksoft, and was released by Devolver Digital.
A man travelling on board a spacecraft had an important mission to complete. When his ship crashed on a foreign planet, the misfortune not only was seriously injured, but also got stuck inside the vehicle. Having no other choice, he had to rely on the help of Kiki, the accompanying cat, in which the players play during the game.
In Gato Roboto the action is shown from the side. The game is about crossing vast levels resembling labyrinths. According to the rules of the species, in order to get to the locked rooms, we must first get certain equipment.
It is worth noting that soon after the adventure begins, Kiki gets access to an armed moss. With time we can equip it with, for example, a rocket launcher, which destroys less durable walls, or even a special module that allows you to perform double jumps. Moreover, thanks to the weapons he uses, we can eliminate opponents standing in our way; we are talking about serial adversaries like frogs or worms, as well as much more powerful bosses, such as a mouse with a similar machine.
At certain moments, however, Kiki is forced to leave his safe cabin. When controlling the pedal directly, we must avoid numerous obstacles and avoid confrontation with the opponents. Our cat's ability to swim or climb onto elements of the surroundings helps us to reach our goal.
The monochromatic graphics of Gato Roboto were made using the pixel art technique.
