A fun , addictive shoot'em up. Easy trophies . The only thing , the later levels are about as difficult as kicking a lion in the face and surviving. Recommended .

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.

You must own this game! It's the best of the Puppygames, and a great "taking quick break" game. Definitely revitalizes me when I'm coding or writing late at night.

Great retro game, but with modern game elements.
Tactical approach is needed if you want to survive at the later levels.

You start with 1 droid, but can overtake other droids and let them fight at your side. You can switch between the model that fits best to the current combat situation. Most of the time you will have just 2-3 droids at your side, because its smart to overtake just the strongest models and destroy the weak ones...

If you are into classic arcade games with a retro touch I give you a strong recommendation!
And for veterans of the good old C64 game Paradroid this is a must buy!
Hard and unforgiving as the original, but also with the same addiction that 8-bit games gave us.
The old school graphics are great and very cute!

...did I mention it has a 2 player coop mode?!

I would like to say this was good, but It crashes all the time. And support won't reply to my email.

Another game from Puppy Games on Steam? Yes
Should I buy it? Yes!

A modern retro tactical stealth shooter where you can hack enemy droids into joining your squad.
50 Levels and a lot of different droid types like The Assassin and Guardbots.
Form a squad, collect upgrades and go through the floors, fighting bosses in an arcade style.

Great game, I give it 8/10
