About This Game

Gear Up is a multiplayer game where you build tanks and battle online opponents. Crawl the arena in devious spider legs, escape with your trusty jetpack or serve your opponents a healthy dose of proximity mines as you design with over one million different combinations.

  • Master the art of propulsion – Will you go for the rumbling caterpillar tracks, swoop across the arena using wind turbines or let loose the smell of burning rubber with go-kart tires?
  • Adapt your arsenal of weaponry – Do you prefer the cold steel of the minigun or the heartwarming sensation of the flamethrower? Will you fall for the old world charm of a thundering bronze cannon or does the electric zapping of the tesla generator tickle your mind?
  • Wage war your way – Regardless if you deploy the body of a submarine, blend into the background with stealth generators or love giving your opponents the dry taste of gunpowder with a barrage of missiles – the choice is yours to make.

Features

  • Battle up to 16 players online
  • Play Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch and Conquest
  • Massive customization with over one million different combinations of parts
  • Arcade physics simulation
  • Leaderboards and achievements

I am simply a potato

I know, I can already see the
"u only habe 4 hours nub xddddd do soemting u dunt liek fer a lung tym beferu u cen juj it xddd"
But still, in that short amount of time, I can see how terrible this game is.
It quickly turns into a "hope that you get on the same team with someone with strong stuff" kind of thing. It's impossible to find people near your skill, and has similar gear to yours. It's very easy to join a game where you will just continuously get killed by a guy camping on a roof, and is also invisible. This, I could deal with, I would just need to learn how to dodge, where to spawn, and how to find him/her. That would be true, if there wasn't someone with 300 health running around spamming rockets everywhere. The amount of kills/captures you have to get just to get 1 extra coin is ridiculous. I have to kill 10 people for just 1 coin? Why is that a thing? I would understand if that were the case for Capture the Point(Or whatever it's called), but it's for Team Deathmatch and Deathmatch too? So, this turns into a grind-for-3-hours-and-get-20-coins thing. Also, it may sound ridiculous, but, why can't we just buy another load-out for about maybe 15-20 coins? Just 1? Would that hurt? Also, another thing. Why can't items you buy be more of a trade-off kind of thing, rather than there just being direct upgrades? I can see the cheap items have that system, but why not all items? Anyways, i'm done with this rant. If you're the type of person that can stay up all night getting spawncamped by an invisible robot spider spamming pokemon macros in the chat just to be another invisible robot spider, than this game is for you.

Game is a little fun, but overall don't waste your time. There is no matchmaking system it's completely random who gets on what team and often one side way over powers the other. New players either don't bother, or expect to spend days getting one shotted as the lowest servers I could find were literally killing me in one shot. Also ran across invisible opponents so either the game has way unbalanced parts or cheating is pretty common. I didn't play long because I tend to enjoy fair play, not being completely outmatched with no options other than spending real money on a pointless game.

At the beginning, this game is okay, you get a good amount of enjoyment out of it. The ony problem is... they haven't updated it for a looooong time, so it's just repetetive if you play it. I think that they could bring this game back to life if they added new things such as maps and vehicle parts. I'd recommend this is you want to play it for about 3 or 4 days but there is really nothing to do once you have all of the vehicle parts.

People keep saying it's like Robocraft. I guess it kind of is, but...








it's actually fun.

I mean seriously, Robocraft was ruined with the updates.

I've been playing for about a week, haven't spent a cent, and now have a pretty powerful setup. In fact, I even have more credits than I know what to do with. It's a FREE game. Try it. It's loads of fun, and I keep coming back for more.

Gear up is an amazing game where you battle, level up, upgrade, repeat (Unless you didn't get the free version. In that case, you have a lot or everything unlocked). You can hover, fly, crawl, or just stick with ordinary wheels and tank tracks. There are many weapons such as flamethrowers, shotguns, machine guns and much more. You can even change the color of your vehicle. There are 4 modes: Conquest, DeathMatch, Team DeathMatch, and Tag. In Conquest, your team's goal is to capture all 6 towers by standing in a specific area near the towers. In Deathmatch, it's everyone against everyone for 10 minutes. Team DeathMatch is the same thing, except you're on a team against another team. Lastly, I'm not sure what Tag is because there simply weren't any servers for the gamemode.

Ist prety gud
translation: It's a very good game, sometimes the lag gets you over, but over-all the game is unigue with it's nice cartoon-ish style of the game. Yet the combat also fits in with this you have rockets, machine guns, chassis, movement, even cosmetics. this game is quite the eye grabber with it's nice bright enviorment and vivid colors, I recommend this game 9/10.
