HotMacApps Review:

Retrobot is a new adventure game, mixed with a comic book style story line. Its based in the future when robots are used in everyday tasks, you are a robot, which happens to look a lot like Wall-E, who is on a quest to find his master who was abducted. You and your monkey friend have to go through different stages, locations and waves of robots to find your master. However as a robot originally designed to play video games, the outside world is something new to you.

Retrobot has stunning illustrated cut scenes which carry you through the story. There is a total of 5 worlds with extra play and a retro store. You also get Game Center leaderboards and achievements. The in game graphics and gameplay are also very strong. Retrobot is definitely a breath of fresh air, its a great, enjoyable game with humor, action and a good story line. The only improvement we would like to see is Retina iPad graphics supported.

The Adventures of Retrobot mixes tank shooter gameplay and fantastic boss battles with a full one hundred panel comic book. The gameplay features strategic elements like an EMP blast and a health recharging shield. Tons of over-the-top action is fused with a comedy story holding an abundance of jokes referring to classic videogames, as well as videogame logic.

In 2025, humanity has shifted menial tasks to a network of automated robots. In the small town of Fairfax, Arizona, we find Retrobot, a hand-built robot and hero of our story. He has been created by Spencer, a socially handicaped genius, 32 years of age, and still living with his grandmother. Retrobot was built to handle all work, but is mainly used for one thing: playing co-op online videogames with his master and creator. After a big server crash, an army of automated robots takes control of the world. They come and kidnap Spencer, who’s robot building skills are deemed a threat to their domination. Together with Toto, Spencer’s pet monkey, Retrobot rolls out into the world in an attempt to find and return his master.
