In Crashbots on Nintendo Switch, you have to reach the finish line of each level before your battery runs out. World Mode takes you through 6 different worlds that each have their unique contraptions and enemies that will try to destroy you. The final level of each world is a big boss fight. In Endless mode, you have to run as far as you can before your energy runs out. Crashbots features 5 different robots. Each robot has its stats and a unique heavy attack. The robots can be upgraded to improve their durability and fighting power. You can unlock new robots by finding all of their parts that are hidden in the various worlds and game modes.
Crashbots – Nintendo Switch Release Trailer
Crashbots feels very much like a ported mobile game. There isn’t any story, this is to get you right into the action. You play as a robot completing tasks and collecting stars. This means that if you want those 3 stars you may need to play the same level back a couple of times.
3 challenges are built into each level, which allows you to (when completed) upgrade your robot.
There is an energy bar that depletes as you move or take damage. This is made to make your move more carefully and avoid damage. What it does is make a simple game very frustrating. You can top up your energy via collectables littered through the game.
The game looks great, with sharp edges and a comic book colour palette. The layout of each level will be the same, but the background and colours will be different. Repetition of the levels will cause them to start to look the same, but I find this will happen with any game. The robots look good, with detail in the joints and movements. The music is average, much like mobile games, this could be played on mute and the game would still be the same. Performance is crisp and stable. Loads quickly and gets you playing in a short amount of time.
Overall, this is a great pick up and play game. It’s nice to look at, and you can play a couple of levels while you go to the toilet. Finally, please check out our gaming reviews. Also, don’t forget to connect with the Jabba Reviews team on Facebook or Twitter.
