It may look like a game from yesteryear, but don’t let its visuals fool you; Gato Roboto is undoubtedly one of the best Metroidvania games on Switch.
After your ship crash lands on a strange outpost, all hope rests on your cat. It’s not just any old cat though, it’s a cat that can take control of various mechs to get things done. And so your adventure begins, taking control of the plucky feline to explore an alien labyrinth in an attempt to save your stranded owner.
Gato Roboto isn’t the biggest Metroidvania available, but that’s reflected in its budget price. It’s gameplay is great though, and there are many upgrades for you to find that will not only make you more capable in battle, but also give you access to new areas. If you’re after a retro-styled Metroidvania to pass away a few hours with, be sure to add this to your collection.
