Magbot


 

 

Thirty Thousand colonists set off on a journey across the stars.

A cryogenically frozen trip that would take hundreds of years while robot caretakers and AI systems watched over them.

Except something went terribly wrong.

Now almost six hundred years late, the ship is falling apart and the fate of the colonists rest with one little Magbot.

A seamless mixture of classic platforming and modern physics.

A sci-fi adventure focused on exploration and environmental puzzles.

Featuring six unlockable magnetic and gravity manipulating abilities.

A story of a derelict ship worn down by time and corrupted caretakers and one little robot.

 


Magbot is a mix of classic platforming and modern physics. Magbot is a metroidvania style puzzle game with a focus on exploration rather than combat. The challenges come from overcoming a hostile environment and occasionally running into its powerful inhabitants.

Magbot features magnetic and gravity abilities to collect and use for environmental manipulation and exploration. The flashlight allows you to navigate dark corridors and also scan certain objects.

Magbot's magnetic abilities are Attract (pull metal objects closer) and Repulse (push metal objects away). Small blue MagPoints mounted on the walls of the ship allow you to use Attract and Repulse to pull or push yourself to areas you can't jump to.

As you progress in the game you gain more abilities such as Kinetic Blast, Jump Booster, Gravity Tether, and Gravity Bubble. Each ability unlocks new areas of the ship to explore and are needed to defeat powerful enemies.

 


Magbot is primarily designed to be played with a mouse & keyboard. It also supports playing via a Game Pad. Microsoft Xbox 360 gamepad is fully supported and the Sony Dual Shock controller is (experimentally) supported via motioninjoy. Magbot has fully remappable keyboard and gamepad buttons and switching between keyboard / mouse and gamepad is completely on-the-fly as the on-screen button prompts change as you switch controls.
