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

After the recent addition of parts duration, I don't recommend this game. For you can no longer can keep your parts permently. Meaning you can't keep that custom tank build you spent hours trying build. Forcing you to either buy the premium and to begin grinding all over again.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

So 'Gear Up', a free to play PvP mulitplayer tank game where you build your own custom futuristic tank and drive it out to battle other players. The game to me is more similar to Cross Out, less than World of Tanks. The game lets you create all sorts of wacky tanks and is less serious compared to War Thunder and World of Tank.

For the graphics of the game it does not have realistic or polished as triple A games. Though it does produce a nice cartoon feel. Your vehicles mostly look like a mash up of hot wheels and those toy tanks that you played with as a kid. The environment often comes with a bright and colour palette. Textures are very good for a simple game. Light reflextion can be seen of the water, glass dome, and the polished metalic finish on your tanks. Lighting in the game feels natural. The enviroment generally feel like your fighting in some toy box with your custom hot-rod tank toy. I find this is very suiting for game, due to its arcade gameplay style and matches well with the fast game pace.

In terms of sound and music the game does suffer a bit. Propulsion sound of your tank doesn't vary with the terrians and each propulsion just have one sound looping, though this is minor compared to the weapon sounds. Weapon often sound they lack much punch and power, generally sounding weak. The mini gun for example sounds more like those airport flight boards than an actual machine gun. For music, the game doesn't have much. Three songs just comprises the in entire songtrack, the title menu, the defeat end and the victory end. They are good songs, but personally I do not feel it matches the atmosphere. The music is mostly trumpet orchestra playing a heroic tone, that I feel clashes with the wacky future punk tank game.

For gameplay, Gear Up does a good job. Customisation is the key feature of the game, and it does it well. Customisation is simple use and navigate. With a large selection of various parts for your tank the customistion option is almost unlimited. Some these parts come with wacky designs like a shark turret, allowing you to have fun in making a frankiestein out of your tank. Though each parts can affect how your tanks function. I feel this is very good feature, for it allows players to build tanks that best matches their play style. Weapons also come in a large range of a sortments. Ranging from your basic cannon to harpon guns. Intially you only get parts to build a basic tracked tank. More parts can be gained by playing matches and earning credits. Those credits you earn can in turn be used to purchse more parts. You could always purchse the premium to unlock all the parts, but then I feel you lose the insentive to continue playing the game. For free to play players, customisation is a bit limited due to a limit of one load out solt and limited parts inventory space. Though one can get around this bay purchasing the basic pack for ten dollars, which a I feel is a bit too much. I well explain this a bit later on.

So enough about customistionation, what about the game modes? So currently the game has three modes for multiplayer: team death match, team conquest, and free for all. Little explaination is needed for these modes, and most of them are your basic PvP game modes. It is fun for the first 30 minutes or so, but then quickly feels trying and repetive. As of now their is no single player mode and any mode to test drive your creation, which I feel they should include. The lack of varity of maps is also a problem. Maps are generally the same, most of them consisting a pile of crates and some simplistic low rise buildings with a bit of vegitation. Balancing is also a bit of a problem with certain weapons being a bit overused and overpowered. While other weopons have been rendered generally useless. For me, the game also has a problem of running smoothly all the time. Quite a few times have encountered some strange bugs where entire matches wouldn't start, or where players become invureble statues.

With its current build, I overall feel this game is a fun little arcade past time. Variety of customistion is definently abundent in the game, but it lacks that variety in gamemodes and maps. The game still needs some polishing for it still suffer with some game flow stopping bugs. I would not recommend the basic pack at its current price, due to the lack of some content and partially unpolished gameplay. For players who want to play for free, I highly recommend it. For this game is a nice fun break from all the realistic and serious tank sims.

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.

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.
