Shoot your trusty Mekabolt to deactivate the robots, use them as platforms, ride them to new heights, and burn pesky underbrush to reach the battery at the end of the stage.

The robots can be manipulated to help you reach your goal. Watch out for dangerous traps, waiting to impede your progress. Only you can save the day!

Mekabolt is quite an enjoyable little game. Yes, it's simple, but there's no shame in simple if a game is fun. I just can't ignore the short length and lack of replay incentive, though. Hopefully, a feedback-shaped sequel can let Mekabolt become fully realized. Meanwhile, you'll have to decide if $4.99 is worth it for 90 minutes of entertainment on your Nintendo Switch.

This game is simple and easily kills time. There is a charm to the retro, old arcade machine gameplay. In the current landscape of visually stunning, it is nice to go back in time to videogame roots and just play a plain game with basic controls. For a break from the intensity, Mekabolt is a good breather, especially at the value of the low price it is selling for.

Mekabolt is generic. It's not great, but it's not terrible either. What's fun at first quickly turns into a chore.

Overall if you like retro platform puzzlers then you can’t really go too wrong at £4.99 for this especially if you are looking to boost your Gamerscore.
