A gigantic space cruiser was slowly gliding through the vastness of cosmos, when suddenly disaster struck! The ship flew straight through a magnetic storm, causing all the robots and machines onboard to go crazy. Luckily, Robb and Otto, the ship's top maintenance robots were putting out a fire in the ship's shield generator room, and didn't get affected by the storm. Now the two unlikely heroes must travel through the ship and disable all the malfunctioning machines. - Classic Arcade Action - 100 Levels - 20 Different Enemies - 10 Huge Bosses - Single Player or Local Co-op

While it's as much a tribute act to Bubble Bobble as it is a game in its own right, Robbotto still manages to offer a fun trip down retro memory lane.

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.

These issues negatively impact enjoyment of the game. You can work on setting a high score and there are basic achievements to complete, but these add little to the overall experience—the achievements consist of completing the game on the three difficulty modes, finishing the boss rush mode, and doing both of those tasks in 2-player mode. Robbotto is fun and simple, but it lacks the charm of the game it's trying to replicate.

If you're looking for a fun arcade-style 2D platforming game and are a fan of the classic Bubble Bobble, then you should certainly give Robbotto a try. The minimalist but charming look, its chiptune soundtrack, enemy and boss variety and the dozens of levels to offer, not to mention a challenging Boss Rush Mode, and its local co-op option, make this a fun game to play on Nintendo Switch.
