Cheap and Dirty Gamer: A.R.C.S Will Destroy Your Mouse

I had fun with the A.R.C.S. and considering it’s only $1.99 on Desura, I probably got more bang out of my buck with it than I have with the AAA titles I’ve purchased recently. I’d love to see Retromite take the concept and get a bit deeper with it. The art assets and sound are already there, I just want a bit more control over my progression.

A.R.C.S Review

The art and soundtrack create a really cohesive atmosphere, the destruction is satisfying and direct, and the retro appeal is fantastic. I just wish there was more of it, and the potential exists. - Peter Redmer

RETROMITE RELEASES ‘A.R.C.S’ AND ‘ROBOTRIOT’ FOR PC, TEASES NEXT 16-BIT DELIGHT

Giant red robots, detailed fiery backgrounds, industrial settings and smoky orange explosions. Ain’t it gorgeous? We’re suddenly back in the 90s with outrageous lime green clothing and fizzy drinks with actual sugar in them. Retromite’s focus on 16-bit pixel art renders many with a sense of nostalgia, and for that reason it should certainly not go amiss. Hence why we’re making up for it now – look at it and drink it in!

RobotRiot Review



In short, RobotRiot is a wonderfully nostalgic experience harking back to the golden era of video games. It's simple platformer/shmup formula doesn't try to be at all innovative instead, Retromite have clearly focused their efforts on delivering a solid blast from the past, with a game that could be easily mistaken for a lost early-nineties Amiga classic from Renegade, Graftgold or The Bitmap Brothers.

RobotRiot Update Review

For $0.99, it's definitely worth checking out, especially considering the gameplay, graphics, level design, controls and physics are all top-notch.

RobotRiot Review and Retromite Interview

Playing as robot repo man is as fun as it sounds in this sidescrolling 2D shooter.

The setup is simple:you board ships looking to destroy the engine's power tanks, so that the vessel can then be towed by a boss robot. The bigger the ship, the more levels with elaborate map layouts to explore. - Josh Abrams

RobotRiot Review

This retro-inspired platformer is very detailed, and looks great on either the Retina Display or the iPad. There’s the requisite chiptune soundtrack as well.

This is a great blend between having levels with actual substance, that one doesn’t feel rushed to complete as quickly as possible, while keeping them short enough for short-form gaming.

Robotriot (80 MS Points): If you're looking for a good bargain, look no further than Robotriot.

For $1, it offers nice pixel-art graphics, fun gameplay, and its own little personality over 12 levels. When talking bang for your buck, I can't recommend it enough!

RobotRiot Review - Sci-Fi Platformer with a Repo Robot

RobotRiot [99˘] from Glowing Eye Games and Retromite, is a Universal 2D sci-fi platform game with retro graphics where you control an armed, hovering, debt-collecting robot, named SLUG.

And frankly, each part of that sentence sounds appealing.

RobotRiot Review

Even more pleasing are RobotRiot’s four boss battles, which are unevenly distributed across its levels; one is encountered in the medium difficulty set, and the other three in the hard difficulty set.

If the rest of the game left any doubt that RobotRiot is a love letter to the early console era, the rather tongue-in-cheek boss designs handily confirm it. Nostalgia aside, these are great breaks from the game’s toughest platforming segments, finally letting the player get major use out of that gun-firing button.

RobotRiot Review

While some games are interested in only approximating platformers from the 90s, Robotriot by Glowing Eye Games seeks to be the kind of game you'd have shelled out for on a Super Nintendo or Sega Genesis (Mega Drive).

Although it doesn't reach the par excellence of titles like Super Metroid, it does bring back memories of Summer days spent trying to knock out the next in a series of brutal, but fair stages while blasting away bad-guys wholesale.
