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 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.

This is a game from the creators of Revenge Of The Titans, a top-down shooter at it's core and so much more once you get into the depths. Each bot you can control has a generally unique description and use, some are good at tanking, others good at firing missles from a distance. This game encourages exploration and essentially is a score attacker's wet dream.

Breaking down the mechanics, you can control up to 8 different units at a time, although doing so is risky. Once you release control of a certain droid, you've handed it over to the AI which isn't entirely tantamount to suicide for the bot, but damn near close. Either way, you'll be doing most of the work unless you simply don't want to. There's a variety of playstyles that Droid Assault caters to, from the sniper to the tank, and better yet.

There's upgrades. Not all upgrades apply to all bots, but the vast majority do. Speed, defense, attack damage, armor. Powerups litter the field and the game pushes you do pop open every single crate for that either special overleveled bot, or a weaker variant that might just drop that piece of salvation you've been looking for. Crates themselves serve as holding containers for random bots geared towards the level you're playing on. So you won't be getting a massive boss-esque bot out of one in your first level or two.

Moving onto Bosses, there are a slew of them in the game that all follow the same archetype. Two to four guns on each side which are destroyable for further powerups, and a primary weapon. Tactics mean everything or nothing depending on how well you've progressed. There's a defenite rougelite element to the game and it's worth replaying over and over if only to get that final ending.

Basically, buy it. It's good, fun, and a new update just included local co-op which supports the gamepad wonderfully. You wont regret it unless you've forgotten there's a demo out as well: http://www.moddb.com/games/droid-assault/downloads/droid-assault-demo
