Looks like a fun game but afterglow XB360 controller support is bad on Linux. Puppy's solution is to edit a text file by hand to fix it. One bad button choice in the text file makes other buttons not work. Hey Puppy thanks for putting so much time & effort into controller setup. I would give this game thumbs up if it would just start with a decent default controller setup or a screen that let me configure it in game. This kind of game definitely needs a controller!

Droid Assault... I like it. This game plays nice until the end. Then it gets nasty mean. The graphics are just right. A simple retro style that looks sweet without adding excess details. There isn't much to the music tracks here but the sound effects more than make up for it as the game sucks you in. In the start you start as only as a harmless droid with a nasty vitus. As you hack other droids, your army grows. More powerful droids require more 'hacking' points. But to keep your army from growning too powerful... well the boss levels are pretty good at wiping out your friendly droids every ten levels. The other factor is harder levels are loaded with more deadly droids that their 'hacking' points allow you to only hack one powerful one or a few less powerful ones but easier to destroy droids. In other words, your very strength in the beginning of the game turns into your weakness. After level 40, if you don't hack the most powerful droid, you just wont last long but your friendly droid may fight with you but is all too easy for enemy droids to take out even if it's more powerful on the simple note it's outnumbered and trades shots instead of dodging and shooting. Near the end this game turns into a nightmare as the game simply out-numbers you with tough droids that you can only hack one or two and the hacked friendly droids die quickly under the enemy firepower. Your best chance to beat the game is to hack the most powerful droid in the game but even with that the final board still mows me down in seconds by overwhelming firepower and droids on level 56 with no walls to hid behind and widdle away the enemy army. I don't know if that's the last level because I see it very unlikely that I wi be able to beat it. Recommend this game? Yes, it was very well done except that cheap ending. Fun to play until the ending kills you with shear numbers , firepower and no dodging or hiding space at all.

I could tell you all about the gameplay, the controls,the graphics,the soundtrack...

I'll add in that I know that this (or,at least I've heard) is a modern spin on a commodore game titled "Paradroid".

I've never done paradroid...

I probably never will.


I'll just say...


This is one of the greatest games ever.

Droid Assault is a fast, tight, and fun arcade shooter. With slick graphics and addictive highscore chasing gameplay, it provides most everything you'd need to enjoy this kind of game. It's moderately challenging, with a slight spike near the ending levels, and a great local co-op mode. It is however a bit lean on content, so, although ten dollars is a fair price, perhaps wait for a sale. Certainly recommended.

Droid Assault does, for a veteran gamer like me, evoke fond memories of Paradroid from the C64 platform back in the eighties. The game is, of course, modernized properly to fit better with what people enjoy in these times. It is rather entertaining and offers a decent challenge for most people. Definetly worth getting.

Droid assault has a definite charm to it, with its fun sounds and music and simple graphics. But that's about where it ends. The controls are simple and work well, but they're almost too simple, it almost feels like it's too easy to master. There isn't a story or really anything with depth. It's a game that would keep you entertained for short amounts of time, but not much more. If you can get it for cheap I'd give it a go, but it's not worth full price.

Well.
Can't say I put a huge amount of hours into this one.
Seemed like a good idea at the time.
Robots etc.
But not really a rich world, story line, soundtrack and effects are forgettable.
I feel this appeals to a very niche' audience.
So far from being an unremarkable game, this is just one that will be loved, fanatically, by some and disregarded by the many.

Rogue like game where you command a small army of robots and shoot or capture other robots through some increasingly difficult levels. Pretty nice. The camera is a little close in for this one and also aiming with a mouse on another robot for some time to capture it is pretty fiddly. No complaints otherwise. Runs fine on linux.

Droid Assault, ça se vend comme un jeu d'arcade rempli de robots qui se tirent dessus au milieu d'arènes variées, avec un superpouvoir pour notre "héros" : pouvoir prendre le contrôle (à l'aide de points limités) d'autres robots pour les ajouter à son équipe de choc (de 1 à 8 robots), que l'ont peut améliorer avec divers power-ups ramassés au sol.
En vérité, c'est un jeu dans lequel on gère son propre robot, gardant en général tous les power-ups pour lui une fois qu'on a trouvé un modèle qui nous convient (les robots ont différentes vitesses/armures/armes), sachant que l'IA de l'équipe est débile à souhait et que la plupart du temps les robots recrutés partiront de toute façon se faire buter dans leur coin à la première occasion. Les power-ups sont confus, il faut deviner ce qu'ils font, ce qui est plus ou moins clair selon les power-ups, les niveaux répétitifs, la gestion des sauvegardes catastrophique (et ce malgré de nombreux posts sur les forums depuis la lointaine sortie du jeu), avec votre progression qui se supprime dans des tas de cas qui n'auraient jamais du passer le moindre contrôle qualité.
Les graphismes sont dans le style habituel des jeux puppygames, du pixel neo-futuriste, avec les musiques électroniques et les bruits de lasers qui vont avec.
Bilan, un jeu qui promet plus qu'il ne délivre accompagné de problèmes techniques et de niveaux répétitifs, on préfèrera zapper.

Attention : ce jeu est un bon shooter, mais dont les perspectives et le potentiel sont gachés.

Droid Assault vous met dans le rôle d'un petit robot qui se mettra rapidement à semer le chaos dans la corporation à laquelle vous étiez attaché. Le gameplay consiste donc à un shooter classique mais dont le tempo est bien plus lent, plus calculé, plus froid : les bonus sont rares et si l'on n'utilise pas savamment les couvertures et le refroidissement de son arme principale, le game over arrive rapidement. Puisque notre petit robot - simple droïde parmi ses confrères - n'est pas spécialement costaud, il faudra alors utiliser son deuxième atout : le hacking. En hackant ses semblables - contre des points engrangés avec le score - ceux-ci pourront vous défendre passivement mais aussi pourront être contrôlables - l'intérêt étant qu'il existe différentes classes de droïdes - MAIS surtout serviront de vies supplémentaires quand votre leader rendra l'âme.

Et là où le bat blesse c'est que vos droïdes ont une IA inexistante (Simple Core) ou limitée concernant leurs déplacements et au mieux seront capables d'aller chercher l'ennemi (Quad Core) mais pas de sauver leur peau. Et pour un jeu qui se revendique tactique ça le fait mal : les robots alliés resteront cloitrés bien souvent dans leur zone et il n'est pas possible de leur donner d'ordre. Et si vous espériez les micro-gérer, c'est votre robot principal qu'il faudra laisser à l'abandon. Le plus frustrant arrive enfin : le tir ami fait que la plupart du temps vous subirez des dommages de votre compagnon "spé-shotgun" qui aura décidé de tirer dans la même direction que vos alliés. S'ils peuvent servir de bouclier vivant, leur utilité est moindre puisqu'ils subiront aussi les dégâts de vos tis. Enfin, n'espérer pas vous servir de vos compagnons comme fidèles membres d'escouades, puisqu'ils rendront l'âme dès la fin du niveau très probablement, étant similaires à vos ennemis, et donc pas spécialement plus costaud qu'eux - et qu'ils ne bénéficient pas, de plus, de vos upgrades ramassées auparavant.

Si j'ai l'occasion de tester le mode coop ainsi que le mode RPG à venir (qui peut-être apportera un aspect roguelike au titre, allez savoir) ou que le jeu subisse des mises à jour - parce que aussi, marre de rester bloquer après la complétion d'un niveau, quand l'interface ne se décide pas à apparaitre et que la seule option reste le ALT+F4, faisant perdre toute ma progression en jeu - j'espère pouvoir sincèrement changer mon avis ... Poppy Games m'avait habitué à un arbre de technologie entre chaque phase d'action (Revenge of the Titans et Ulratron principalement), mais il n'est tout simplement pas présent ici. Dommage.

Plutôt fun et dur !
Poussé à l'extrème je dirais même un jeu de tactique, car selon l'équipe que vous avez au fur et à mesure il vous faudra bien choisir quoi prendre, car vous pourriez être bloquer.

Bien réalisé et plutôt joli à regarder ce jeu est un petit bijou quand à ceux qui aime le Hack&Slash et les powers ups, ainsi que le côté RPG (upgrade des robots via les powers ups que vous ramassez)

FAIT PAR PUPPY GAMES, la firme qui à aussi fait d'autres jeux épic.... je vous conseil d'aller voir leurs jeux !

Droid Assault is a modern-retro arcade shooter in the typical Puppy Games visual style (other Puppy Games: Titan Attacks, Ultratron).

In this game you can experience running blaster battles with hordes of rampaging killer robots!
The player team can contain up to eight droids at one time. Player control can be quickly transferred to any of the units by hitting the assigned numeric key assigned to the drone, or by launching a transfer beam to a nearby friendly unit. You can hack enemy droids into joining your squad, collect upgrades, choose different droid types and go through the floors, fighting bosses and and and.

The first few levels are pretty quick but get progressively more challenging…

Droid Assault is constructed for players that crave the adrenaline rush of dodging a searing hail of enemy projectiles. Droid Assault is smart, nerve-wracking, and intense. Worthwhile for when you need some minutes of action.

I really like the game but the original price (9,99 €) is not adequate in my eyes. I advise to wait for a coupon or a sale.

A great mini game with retrocute graphics from Puppygames. Your task is to start out with a small robot and clear enemy ship's levels one by one at same time upgrading yourself by capturing and taking over enemy robots.

The robots vary with speed, armor and armaments and once you have captured an enemy unit, it then follows you assisting you with clearing the rest of the level. You can then easily switch between your robots while AI controls the rest of your group.

Game is very entertaining, easy to hop in and out, while the difficulty level between levels slowly increases. It gives me nice flashbacks from the old Paradroid game in C64, though Droid Assault is much more action oriented and doesn't require careful planning.

It's made by Puppygames - of course I recommend it to everyone.

Really fun action/strategy hybrid. You start with a crap droid and capture others, which in turn act as allies that you can switch to, but act autonomously. Droids themselves can move around and shoot in any direction, with various speeds, weapons and properties. It's really easy to get in to, really hard to master. The checkpoint system is more than fair, though, so you can always head back to a previous checkpoint level to use the squad you had when you last made it to that level, so if you really screw up a run, or are aiming for an achievement ("Flush" is a nightmare), you can slowly push the odds in your favor, as sometimes your AI buddies can march to their deaths when they have multicore brains.

It plays very well, has local coop and offers gradual challenge jumps to ease you into the more chaotic battles that can occur. Just keep in mind how the checkpoint system works, and you won't end up with a fist through your monitor.

Wreck enemy droids. Earn 'transfer' points. Use them to transfer droids under your command. Wreck more droids. Yes there's some tactical considerations but those are mainly important when you're injured or spot a healty droid you'd like to steal. Squad management is minimal, but don't let that fool you into thinking the game is mindless, chaotic and dumb. It's mindless, chaotic and fun!

The game is simple and short. Hectic to the point of overwhelming chaos, well designed and presented in a 'puppygames' style that is both charming and epileptic. Or 'just right' though your mileage may vary. I personally enjoyed the audio/visual aspect of the game, though it can be irritating or mind-breakingly confusing. I just like that stuff. Again, your mileage...

Recommended for fans of fast-paced, bullet hell shooters games.

I have a lot of games in my collection but few essentials and this one is by far one of my favorites. One of the most brilliant minds in music once said, "keep it simple stupid" -J.B. (it’s also origin of K.I.S.S.) and the simplicity of Droid Assault is brilliantly done on so many different levels, from its game play, to graphics, to sound. With this title Puppygames does "K.I.S.S." proud.

The gameplay is too damn fun and it's simple, you're a droid (no, not a phone, a robot) who can take control over other enemy droids to make them friendly or you can just blast them away, friendly or not. Once the level is cleared of all enemies, repeat in the next level. You can literally create your own army of droids, that is, if you do not shoot them. There are a lot of different droids all with different attributes, abilities and weapons to make this game even more fun and interesting, along the way picking up a multitude of different power-ups.

The graphics are always very well done with Puppygames games and Droid Assault is no exception, as the contemporized old school graphics are very well designed with that Puppygames genuine style that give this game its beautiful unique flare.

Though there is no sound track to this game, which to me is the games only downfall, the atmospheric backgrounds and sound effects are immersive and well done, though you may wanna get an appropriate playlist together before you jump into this game. I do sincerely wish that Puppygames did a little more with the sound track like they did with Ultratron.

Controls are a simple WASD and mouse aim combo, or recently added by Puppygames, twin stick controller enabled. Though you do lose some aiming control using a controller. This would be my only other complaint about this game as it implores a lock on system that tends to make shooting distant or faster enemies hard to hit. This also cannot be disabled unless you are using the mouse and keyboard combo.

Also recently added by Puppygames is local co-op which gives this game additional value and replyability. Though there is no online co-op, local co-op sometimes makes fighting go beyond the computer player but with your co-op player for screen space.

Gameplay: Top Down Arena Shooter (could also be considered Twin Stick)
Graphics: Great Contemporary Old School.
Sound: Great sounds effects and atmosphere though missing the music making it overall okay.
Controls: Great with mouse and keyboard. Okay with twin sticks (the aiming is more difficult than necessary).
Replayability: OMG YES!
Overall: 9/10 (-1 for disappointing controller aiming and lack of sound track)

It's an awesome and solid game and its old school arcade-ish simplicity has me coming back time and time again. It's a great buy for any collection!

Buy? Maybe. Admitedly, this is my least favorite Puppygames title so far, which isn't to say it's bad at all, just mainly a bit less of my type. A top down action game where You control a droid with WASD and aim with the mouse - left to shoot, right to hack/transfer. The idea is to destroy all enemy droids while keeping your party alive, which is MUCH easier said than done. The game is a bit less about action skill and more about the managment of your droids, as some are faster than others, or have better defense, or have different weapons more suited for a situation. It's fairly easy for your droids to die, but it's also fairly easy to hack other droids if you have enough transfer points. The AI that commands friendly drones is fairly competent at killing enemies, but not so much at staying alive, so there is a constant need to keep them out of harm's way. Things get real challenging with boss battles and danger areas that throw tons of bots at you - I Think it's expected that you will loose some droids, which will unfortunately loose any upgrades they had. A very clever tactical, action game that use simple mechanics that just work. A challenging game, and I think I got to at least level 30 before I died, but I don't think I can improve much on my skill after my team nearly got wiped out the in the previous couple levels. If the idea of the game appeals to you, definitely get it, just realize there is a big challenge ahead of you in the later level (Ironically, the game seems too easy at the beginning).

Droid Assault is the perfect "coffee break" for the videogamer, a tasty indie game to drink and sip between an online multiplayer match and an intense session of your favourite MMO.With its retro-themed visuals and sound effects, Droid Assault looks sharp and plays like a dream. The deliberately simple designs of the droids and levels are heavily accentuated with stylish, mood-enhancing glowing light effects, lush explosion and fragmentation emitters, and sleek, pulsing damage animations.Droid Assault is smart, nerve-wracking, and intense.

Droid Assault is a top down shooter whereby you're a virus capable of hacking and taking control of enemy robots, from this you can produce your very own team of interchangeable robots as you progress through stages and tackle even tougher enemy robots! Initially, it seems like a great idea but unfortunately, it's pretty poorly executed, mainly due to how loose the team management is but otherwise due to how poorly the allied AI perform.

There's many ways this game could be improved, giving the player more control over their team would be a given, making the stats of each robot a little clearer so it's possible to identify the advantages and disadvantages of having them as part of your team as opposed to just hopping system to system blindly hoping for the best would be another, it's also possible to upgrade robots via pickups however they're incredibly vague too, perhaps if it was possible to equip each system individually and change their upgrades?

I'd suggest giving this game a miss and checking out another of Puppygames works, they're definitely great developers and Droid Assault is simply not on par with their other three games.

This game is a great arcade style game like the old coin ops. You play as a robot and you have to eliminate all the enemy robots before you can exit a stage and move to the next one. As you play you get powerups that make your robot shoot faster, recharge faster, have more armor, do more damage per shot, and so on, but you can also capture other robots which allows you to switch into them. There's walls in the level that you use for cover while you try to destroy the enemy robots and there's a bit of a stealth component to the game too because robots won't come after you and attack you unless they can see you or a security camera can see you. You can capture other robots and use them so it acts almost as a class selection would in another game and lets you adjust your tactics to the particulars of the level. There's also occasionally boss robots at the end of the levels, around every 10 levels or so.

This is a blast for ten minutes to an hour here or there when you just want to do a little shoot em up and you can save at any time and come back for later so its a perfect game for casual play. This isn't a hardcore game so don't go into it expecting to play it for 20 hours. Its an arcade shoot-em up so you'll get a similar amount of play time to those kind of games, but you won't be dragged down by tedium just designed to slow down gameplay to make a ten minutes of action take 4 hours.

I tried to like this game, I gave it so many chances (because I just love other Puppy-games), but I don't see anything fun here.
In a few words, Droid Assault is a game about dodging bullets. Of course, there are other gameplay elements which may seem interesting at a glance, but believe me, they are not relevant to success in the game.
The developers tried to make it look like there is a lot of strategic thinking involved in the game, but I will try to show why that's not the case.
You think that having an army of droids is cool? Trying to come up with different combinations, etc... Nope. You can control one droid at a time and the others do whatever they want (read: stupidly die all the time). Having one buffed droid is the only valid "strategy".
When you transfer to a droid, you don't know what you're going to get. Even when looking at a droid's information screen, the only thing you know for sure is how much health it has. Other pieces of information are either "ciphered" ("armour: kevlar", what does that tell you?) or just "lore" (affect nothing). At the same time, you have different ways for droids to interact: maybe some weapons work better against some armours... but we may never know, because there is a huge lack of information. Well, you could spend tons of time and compile a table with information on all the droids, deduce the meanings... but who wants to do that?
From what I remember, the bosses are just big droids with big guns, nothing too special.
But it's not all that bad. The game looks cool, I guess. Upgrading the droids can feel nice...
Droid Assault can be fun for a few hours, maybe for one playthrough, but it is not worth the full price.

IMO, the best of these Puppy Games retro style games. Clearly inspired by the 1985 classic Commodore 64 game Paradroid. Bit less about arcade twitch reflexes and more about tactics and squad management than the other Puppy games, just a bit. You roam around with your bot, destroying other bots or taking them over with your transfer beam. Cleaning the building floor by floor. Unlike in Paradroid, you get to keep the old bodies as allies and transfer control at will to them as well. You could still play this game much like Paradroid keeping the control on and getting all the powerups for your best chassis and using the others as cannon fodder.

What I miss about Paradroid is minigame for taking over the bots. Bit more elaborate than the concept of "transfer points" used here. Maybe they felt, it'd break the flow or something. Still a good game, though.

Droid Assault
Droid Assault is a game where your goal is to destroy all the droids
gone haywire within their Production Company , starting only with one
unarmed small droid and the abillity to "hack" other droids to posses them ,
you have to go though the entire game dealing with all different sorts of droids
from plasmagun reapeater wielding police droids to massive behemoths armed to teeth !
A Fantastic and well-made Game i must Say !
