Astro Bot Rescue Mission is a 3D platform video game developed by SIE Japan Studio's ASOBI Team division and published by Sony Interactive Entertainment for the PlayStation 4's PlayStation VR headset. It stars a cast of robot characters introduced in The Playroom, where they appeared as robots that lived inside of the DualShock 4 controller. The player teams up with Captain Astro and goes on a quest to rescue his lost crew scattered across 5 worlds and 20 levels. In total, there are 212 Bots to rescue. In a VR space, the player uses their body to lean and see past obstacles or headbutt parts of the scenery. The DualShock 4 controller is used to control Astro, but exists within the VR space as a virtual gadget to help Astro on his way. The game counts 20 stages, 6 bosses, 26 challenge stages, and a collection room on board the Astro Ship.
Astro Bot Rescue Mission is a 3D platform game in which the player takes control of Astro Bot, a small robot using the DualShock 4 controller. Astro is able to jump, hover, punch and charge his punch into a spinning attack. The game is in VR; one of the particularities is that the camera is controlled by the player's head's movements rather than the right analog stick. As the VR player, they also exist in this world as a giant robot following Astro, with the ability to interact with the environment; for instance by destroying walls with head-butts, dodging enemies attack or blowing in the headset's microphone to spread flower petals. The goal of the game is to rescue Astro's crew scattered around each world. There are 8 lost robots in each level and finding them requires skillful jumping and looking carefully through the environment. The game utilizes 3D audio so the player can locate the voice of Bots. At the end of every world, a boss waits and requires a certain number of bots rescued to unlock, occasionally prompting the user to return to previously cleared levels in order to rescue more of the lost bots. Just like Bots, Space Chameleons are hidden per level, and the player can find them by relying on 3D audio. When a Space Chameleon is found, a special extra challenge stage is unlocked, doubling the game content. In some levels, Magic Chests can be found that contains controller gadgets. There are 7 gadgets in total (Hook shot, Water Gun, Shuriken, Tight Rope, Magic Light, Machine Gun and Slingshot). The water gun, for instance lets you grow plants to make platforms for Astro to jump on, activate turbines or cool down lava to create a safe path for Astro Bot. Using these controller gadgets, you are able to help Astro through his journey, combining the 3rd person platforming with the gadget use in 1st Person. This duality is one of Astro Bot's unique points and makes it a mix between traditional platform games and VR positional gameplay. At the end of every world, a huge boss awaits requiring you and Astro to work as a team to defeat.
The game was created inside Japan Studio by ASOBI Team. Due to popular demand and fan feedback of the mini game called "Robot Rescue" in The Playroom VR, SIE Japan Studio decided to make a fully fleshed game based off the mini game. Astro Bot Rescue Mission was developed in 18 months by a team of 25 people. The music was composed by Kenneth C M Young. The game has been bundled with fellow VR game Moss.
The game was released on October 2, 2018 in Europe and North America and October 3, 2018 in Asia in both digital and boxed formats.
