Cobalt WASD gives the quirky platformer a competitive second lease of life

One of the stranger side-effects of Microsoft buying Minecraft studio Mojang is that quirky sci-fi platform shooter Cobalt has just quietly continued to exist. Published by the now-mighty Swedish company and made by Oxeye, development on it continued for years, eventually resulting in a low-key release accompanied by a broadly positive critical reception, like inĀ our review here.

Viewtiful Robo: Cobalt Shows Slow-Mo, Level Editor

Mojang may or may not be going forward with its plan to become some kind of indie developer/publisher mega-hybrid, but 2D robo-biffer Cobalt's still hopping, bopping, and blasting along in the background.
