'Go Go Bots' is a Facebook Gaming exclusive from Ustwo

Race against the clock in a glitchy cyberpunk future.


Ustwo Studios — a division of the creative company behind Monument Valley and Assemble with Care ­– has dropped a new title on Facebook Gaming: Go Go Bots. It’s a fast-paced, strategic climbing game set in a glitchy, cyberpunk future — choose from one of five mechanical characters, each with their own special powers, and race against the clock (or your pals) to navigate hazard-strewn obstacle courses.

There are two game modes: Seasons lets you play solo, while Grand Prix lets you compete against others. Getting into the game itself is pretty seamless — it’s playable straight from the Facebook app, no downloads required, so you can dip in and out without any hassle or commitment.

It’s not a ground-breaking concept by any stretch, but it has all the hallmarks of a successful mobile game. It’s fun, it’s brightly-colored, and most importantly, it connects people. Platforms like Twitch and Mixer are generally geared towards the more serious gamer, while mobile games are more accessible to occasional gamers, and have a wider reach. It’s a formula that Facebook is clearly keen to hone, too, given the site’s recent redesign and its increased focus on the gaming tab. Go Go Bots is available exclusively on Facebook Gaming around the world today.
