Astro Bot Rescue Mission brings a genuinely new perspective to the platform genre.

October 5, 2018 |

I don’t know whether the lack of conversation about the game is due to the chilled reception of VR in 2018 or too many other big games launching this month. Don’t let either distract you from this gem. Astro Bot is a beautiful world and I encourage everybody to visit.

Astro Bot Rescue Mission, like its titular hero, gets the job done. Although the general tone is low key at all times, there’s very rarely any lows to speak of. It’s polished and responsive, it just plays it safe with its subdued level design, relying on the VR “wow” factor a bit too often.
