Gato Roboto official artwork with logo

As you might imagine from the name alone, Gato Roboto stars a cuddly little cat piloting a heavily armored mech through a variety of simple yet stylish environments. When it comes to the actual gameplay, Gato Roboto is a Metroidvania that will have you cleave your way through hordes of enemies in search of upgrades and secrets, all of which will then further enable you to blast away at even more baddies. 

Since gameplay is king for any sort of Metroidvania game, allow me to share with you the recently posted launch trailer. It should give you a pretty good idea of what to expect:

While certainly interesting, it is important to mention that Gato Roboto is a fairly bite-sized game, mostly meant as an introduction to the genre rather than something hardcore players could dive into for months on end. That said, the price tag is appropriately low for this sort of experience, so if you don't mind a bit of a simpler adventure, it does seem like Gato Roboto is worth at least checking out.

You can learn more about Gato Roboto, as well as potentially grab yourself a copy, over at Steam or the official website. Have fun being a cat!
