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.

Game: Droid Assault
Summary: Addicting game with some interesting mechanics, but suddenly turns into an endless, unsatisfying run for points
Rating (5/10 = failure): 6/10
Multiplayer: Local
Completion: 3 hrs
Cards: Yes
Cloud: Yes
Cost: ~1 USD bundled

Droid Assault might be the first game of its kind that I've played. It's your standard top-down twin stick shooter, but with the fascinating ability to completely hijack and become your enemies.

I particularly enjoyed the discovery of different powers of various droids. They range from being able to hover, to shooting lasers. Outside of that gimmick, though, I'm not sure what else there is to say.

I would have liked a way to scan the droids I am about to take over. As it is now, you have to remember what droids have what powers based on their appearance, which is kind of hard to tell since they all look vaguely alike. Also, the AI for your allied drones is just awful. I have no idea how to keep an army alive for any sort of boss.

There's a rudimentary upgrade system that is based entirely on random things dropped by the levels. I would have liked a way to upgrade things between levels as well.

Curiously there tends to be little reward for blowing up enemies. I guess survival is its own reward, but would it have been too much to ask for experience or cash? Something that makes me stronger.

I feel that the game suffers from its sheer lack of story or ending. At least Ultratron and Titan Attacks had a final stage before it loops to the beginning again. This game just goes on and on. It harkens a little too far back to the Atari days where we do nothing but play for points. I'm sure that style of gameplay appeals to some people, but definitely not me.

Overall, fun at first, but becomes completely and utterly pointless.

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
