Ratings and Reviews
Pretty, but far too short
When you play this game for the first time, all difficulties besides "Easy" are locked. On "Easy," almost every level in this game is a cakewalk, with the exception of the actually-somewhat-challenging final boss.
Then, when you beat the game, all the other difficulties are unlocked. Now, you can play the exact same levels you just breezed through, except presumably harder. I say "presumably," because after a d*** move like that, I'm not touching this again.
The sad part is that there are still a lot of collectible in-game logs to find on higher difficulties, and they're actually entertaining to read. But they're not worth playing the game itself. In retrospect, maybe the developers should have asked themselves whether, out of all the game mechanics the App Store sorely lacks, "cover shooting" was the one that desperately needed to be adapted.
I’ve played this on my old phone when the game first came out. I played it for ages and now I’m playing it again on a new phone. One thing I’ve noticed comparing the older version of the game is the lighting. In the old version, I could actually see what was going on on the screen, and in the scrapyard I could see what my robot looks like with different equippment. The new version of the game changed the lighting so much that everything is unnecessarily bright, there’s so much white on the robot, and it doesn’t look cool anymore when I put on different equippment. I wish there was an option to change the lighting effect.
Great 99 cent game
After you beat the game on easy, the Bots get tougher and tougher. Playing through the levels over and over is fun. Plenty of variety since there are ten levels with varied Bots to fight and weapons to dodge. Roll, jump, or take cover. You can customize your own Bot with upgrades. Seriously great game for the low price.
