Conclusion: Tokobots alone won't get you through this game, however; your skills will be tested as you make precision jumps, battle an assortment of enemies, and try to figure out what you must do in order to continue deeper into the game's stages. Be assured–at times, you'll fail, and you'll die.
Conclusion: Tokobot Plus doesn’t really have much going for it at all. It’s not that there’s anything really badly wrong with the game – well, expect for the camera – it’s just that there’s nothing that’s terribly exciting about it either.
Excerpt: Tokobot Plus: Mysteries of The Karakuri is a platforming puzzler from Tecmo that features a group of little robots who can work together to help you out in a number of tricky situations. These robots were apparently created many, many years ago by a prehistoric civilisation.
Excerpt: For all the crap that the PSP gets for being the home of endless PlayStation 2 ports, it's actually managing to spawn a few creative games of its own, some of which are starting to make the leap to the PS2.
Conclusion: Karakuri attacks at the push of a single button. There is also a new point upgrade system added into the game to allow players to power up their combination attacks as well as increase their life bars.
Conclusion: If you're a 3D-platforming fanatic and you have a PSP then I can see you perhaps picking up the PSP version, albeit largely thanks to a lack of much else on the platform. However, stretching the game out to the big screen doesn't do it any favours and on the PS2 there are plenty of other games out...
Pros: Presentation is nice
Cons: It's a conversion from a PSP game and it shows

Excerpt: It’s Platform Jim, but not as we know it. Let me make this clear before I start, I have listed this game as an action adventure, but it is more adventure/puzzler Well I am no stranger to the platform / adventure genre but this game is unlike most others I have played.
