ReCore is an action-adventure platforming third-person video game by Comcept and Armature Studios, and directed by Keiji Inafune of Mega Man fame. It was released on September 13, 2016.

From Steam: 'You are Joule Adams, one of the last remaining humans on the planet Far Eden, a mysterious and dangerous world controlled by robotic foes bent on your destruction. To survive you must forge friendships with a courageous group of Corebot companions, each with unique abilities and powers.'

Needs a Better Description.



  • Action Girl: Joule, of course.
  • Animal Mecha: Most corebots generally have at least a vaguely animalistic design - for example, Mack's dog shape, or enemy corebots looking like wolves and spiders.
  • Arbitrary Head Count Limit: During gameplay, Joule can only bring two corebots with her and can only have one corebot out at a time even though she can face against multiple enemies.
  • Bizarrchitecture: Eden Tower and its interior corrupted by Victor is weird and creepy.
  • Charged Attack: Joule's Weapon can do this.
  • Deadly Dust Storm: Common on Far Eden, said to be so powerful that they will last for days and make significant changes to the region.
  • Desert Punk
  • Disney Death:Kai seemed to have died when Victor attacked both him and Joule on the aerial tramway. Joule was able to escape as Kai held Victor off and the tram fell to the ground. At the end of the game, during The Stinger, it is revealed that Kai survived.

  • Double Jump: One of the mechanics of Joule's suit.
  • Interface Spoiler: Apparently empty slots for corebots on the various menus spoils the fact that Joule picks up additional corebots as the game goes on.
  • Grappling-Hook Pistol: Has a grapple which she uses to extract corrupt corebot cores or latch onto specific companion corbots to help traverse the terrain.
  • Loads and Loads of Loading: Even after the patch for Xbox One to alleviate some issues with the game, it's still prone to very long load times.
  • Names Given to Computers: Some corebots have this type of name attached to them, such as "Violet" (V1-0LT).
  • No OSHA Compliance: Justified by the levels being designed for robots, not humans. There are even little PSA posters warning corebots not to manhandle their less-durable human coworkers.
  • Robot Buddy: The companion corebots.
  • Scenery Porn: Far Eden is a desert world of sweeping vistas and rock formations with lots of bright colors.
  • Secondary Fire: Joule's Weapon has a normal fire and charged attack and she can switch between 4 ammo colors.
  • Sequel Hook: At the end of the game.
  • Terraform: What the Mandate wanted to do to Far Eden.
  • Tron Lines: Shows up inside the corrupted Eden Tower.
  • Videogame Dashing: Air Dashing is a mechanic used by Joule thanks to her exo-suit.
  • Warp Whistle: The Transfer Plates let you fast travel between them after discovering them. They are manned by a corebot designated as Violet (V1-0L3T).
  • Weapon of Choice: Joule only has her machine gun, which is aptly named Joule's Weapon.

How well does it match the trope?
