Tokobot is Tecmo's first game for the
PSP and is whimsical and wonderfully quirky little title.
The storyline begins thousands of years ago, in the
land of Moritari, where a prehistoric race created extraordinary
technology that revolutionized life. Now, in modern
times, this lost technology is being excavated from
the ruins of the ancients by private laboratories. However,
the rediscovery of mini mechanised helpers, called Tokobots,
has sparked interest from treasure hunters who plan
to use the robots' powers to take over the world. It's
up to our hero, Bolt, to foil their evil plan.
Players begin with just six Tokobots
but, as the difficulty ramps up, the player will have
to seek out extra robots in order to deal with the increasingly
complex problems. Tokobots are able to generate 'joint
actions' – a fusing together with Bolt to create
ladders, swings and gliders – and can unify in
Karakuri Combinations. Call one of these into action
and watch your Tokobots merge and become a larger, much
more powerful or more useful robot - such as the sword
wielding samurai or block lifting crane.
The game also features a Time Attack
mode once the player has completed the Story mode, as
well as a selection of highly engaging mini games. The
combined effect is a unique, fun and compelling gaming
experience that can be played anywhere and at any time.
