Traditional arcade shmup Atomic Robo-Child is again on Nintendo Swap
As a part of Hamster’s unending pledge to convey traditional retro titles to fashionable platforms, the writer has re-released UPL’s mini-mech – and fantastically-titled – shooter Atomic Robo-Child on Nintendo Swap.
Launched within the arcades again in 1988 and finally discovering its solution to house computer systems, Atomic Robo-Child has gamers pilot a cutesy mech character in opposition to throngs of lethal enemies, utilising a number of diverse weaponry to remain alive and attain every of the stage’s domineering boss characters, the “Governors”, whose epic dimension and scale blew us away again within the day.
Not solely did Atomic Robo-Child have nice bosses, but it surely and nice graphics and results, branching paths, neat music and even duels between fellow Robo-Youngsters. It was fairly a step-up again in ’88, although I am but to see whether or not the gameplay holds up underneath fashionable scrutiny. If you wish to check out a slice of retro shmup historical past, then Atomic Robo-Child is offered now on Nintendo Swap, priced at round $8.
