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.

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

Droid Assault is a charming and addictive "tactical arcade shooter". With a little luck and help from your droid army you will move from stage to stage taking down other droids or assimilating them and using their unique abilities to help you progress.

From the tight controls, music, and 8 bit graphics. Droid Assault was a game I thoroughly enjoyed. But why do I not recommend droid assault?

It seems the only thing that puppygames has been developing over the last couple months has been a victim complex rather than another uninspired robot game. Seems a series of poor decisions is leading them to close their doors

"But we’re not allowed to say it, because it makes customers feel bad. Customers all think they’re worth everything in the entire world to us. The funny thing is, you are. Without customers, we’re dead in the water, homeless and living in a cardboard box outside Berko sewage plant. But individually, you’re like ants. And all of developers secretly know it and don’t talk about it. You’re not worth supporting. It’s far, far better to completely, totally ignore support, if you want to make a living."

I use to support puppygames they made some really clever games in the past. But I can't support you anymore and I won't. Perhaps while you are looking for work in the next couple months you'll learn how to be a little more humble. People have enough respect to support you and you should do the same.

This is actually a really cute game. There are a TON of different droids, varying from: movement type, weapons, power output, battery size (for weapons), hull, armor types, and on and on. You start with one simple droid, and gain the ability to hijack others for your cause, assuming you have enough points to do so. Droids often drop permanant upgrades on death, sometimes armor and health boosts for your droids. Each level is all about domination, whether you do that by turncoating the enemies or simply killing them outright, you win. Droids you hack to your team stay on your team from level to level until they are killed. You can also swap between any droid in your little army.

Very, very fun.

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
