|RoboBlitz. Naked Sky Entertainment, Inc.|
RoboBlitz is a humorous, physics-based action game full of inventive gizmos, weapons and environments.
Players become Blitz, a multi-talented robot who must activate an aging Space Cannon in order to save his world from a band of maladjusted space pirates.
RoboBlitz is inspired by some of our favourite classic games like Megaman, Zelda, and Mario.
We then added physics to the formula to create a new kind of experience. We wanted the game to appeal to players of all ages and genders.
As an independent developer, we had a lot of freedom in creating RoboBlitz and we look forward to creating more fun and innovative games!
