Not a bad game, it has some problems with camera and it's a bit repetetive at times, however it's still a decent game.

An extremely shallow, poorly balanced action game with good controls.

-Clean controls
-Variety of weapon types

-Storytelling scenes were fair.
-Level design is bland.

-Combat mechanics are awful. Since the enemy hits you almost instantly, the *vast* majority of combat is just trading hits with the enemy. Note: due to poor combat mechanics, you *have* to just trade hits with the enemy until they die a lot of the time.
-Balance is awful. You take 1 damage from environmental effects and 1-2 from enemies. Health packs which are EXTREMELY abundant provide 20 health so you never have an issue with health. However, near the very end of the game there is a "quarantine" room (see below) which throws way too many melee enemies that simply chain-stun you to death. Until this point in the game I did not even come close to dying (except on one boss where you just trade blows as usual). However, I was unable to get past this room despite several attempts since the mobs just chain-stun you and there is nothing you can do.
-"Quarantine" rooms: These are rooms that lock the doors on you and continuously spawn enemies at you until you kill them all. The concept is fine, but the problem is that there are way too many enemies spawning in each room, they spawn one by one, and there are way too many of these quarantine rooms back to back to back. Most of the time, you just sit in the corner holding the mouse button could do it with your eyes closed. Its more a test of patience than anything else.
-For a game with a metroidvania-esque map, there are no real collectibles, secret areas, etc.

Terrible game-design, quarantine parts are cancer (you pretty much just have to kill hordes of robots, nothing else), cliche story and repetitive after 10 minutes playing. Waste of time, even for free.

This game is like the best project out of videogame production class for highschoolers. Not bad, but not great either. I guess I recomend it. I had fun, though there were a couple almost impossible parts in the game if you play on regular difficulty.

This style of action adventure game was a dime a dozen already 20 years ago. Bad Bots doesn't really do much to make itself stand out in anyway except for in one really negative way. This is a standard side-scroller game that has elements of metroidvania to it, but only in a superficial way. You're dragged by nose through the plot which leads you directly to new areas that were closed off before. Where this game really ♥♥♥♥♥♥ me off were the sections where the room is sealed and you have to fight off a huge wave of enemies that try to swarm you. This seems like a cheap way to extend the length of a short game anyway and some of them required moving the controller in such a way that it was causing my hand physical pain to correctly jump around the screen to avoid death.

I'm giving this a negative reccomendation, but also suggesting if you really want this... get it while it is really cheap on sale.

To be completely honest... the game is competent at best of being a sidescrolling shooter.
It is short, about an hour, has a variety of weapons that differ just enough to warrant them, and the shooting itself isn't too bad. The most glaring issues are the overpowered stunlocks that can screw you over on higher difficulties, the sheer volume of enemies that are thrown at you at times (stacked on top of the stunlocking), and especially a couple bosses that basically are all about stunlocking you (see a pattern here?). After a bit, you will bunnyhop as often as possible to avoid this problem (or at least, try to, it can still get you.

Bad Bots ist ein 2D Shooter im Retro-Look. Die Story wird im Comic-Stil erzählt. Anfangs macht das Spiel noch Spaß. Man findet neue Waffen, entdeckt neue Räume und besiegt Bossgegner. Doch leider hält dies nicht lange an, denn nach einer Weile wird "Bad Bots" zu einseitig und damit langweilig. Das Spiel zeigt dann einfach wenig Abwechselung. Ausserdem stört es nach einer Weile auch, dass man manchmal im Level zurück gehen muss um weiterzukommen. Das kann auch schnell dazu führen, dass man sich verläuft. Das Spiel ist zu Anfang gut aber schon nach ein paar Stunden wird es zu einseitig.

Habe das Spiel durchgespielt und muss sagen es ist besser als viele andere schreiben.
Das Gameplay ist recht gut ausbalanciert und die Story ist ok für einen so "einfachen" 2D sidescroller.
Die steuerung mit dem Xbox360 funktioniert gut und die Boss kämpfe sind machbar und ausgeglichen.
An einigen stellen kann das Spiel dennoch manchmal frustrierend sein aber dafür hat man ausreichend Speicher möglichkeiten sowie genügend checkpoints, was man von manch anderen Spielen dieser art nicht behaupten kann.

Im ganzen:
Grafik => 3/5
Sound => 4/5
Gameplay => 4/5
Story => 4/5

Fazit: Im ganzen einen Blick wert wenn man ein gutes 2D sidescrolling game sucht für zwischendurch.

Extrem schlechtes Spiel. Eines der schlechtesten Spiele die ich in meiner Bibliothek habe. Steuerung ist unglaublich schlecht, sogar die Controller Belegung ist eine Katastrophe!
Bei solch einem Spiel muss man sich schon beschweren, wenn man es kostenlos erhalten hätte! Aber 10€!!! Das ist ein verdammter Witz!

Dieses Spiel macht spass und süchtig!
Fordert Geschick und Forschergeist, kleine
Türen oder Luken, hinter denen sich praktische
Munition oder Heilung finden lässt...

Es gibt einige Specialweapons und eine Nahkampf Axt,
diese noch ein Powerup erfährt :)
Die BadBots sind dumm aber hartnäckig und die Monition
sollte nicht verschwendet werden... Auch einige Bosse im Spiel
können dich fordern!

Alles im allen ist es ein schönes Spiel, jedoch SCHNELL VORBEI, doch
die Errungenschaften und Survival-Mode machen dies wieder wett :D

Viel Spass beim Zocken!

The premise for bad bots is the standard sci-fi trope about robots that have been programmed to kill, with you, the main character, being the only one capable of stopping them. The story isn't very good but it isn't terrible either, it's kind of just there to move the game along. The set pieces and art style are servicable - you end up seeing a lot of the same sprites and textures, but there's enough variance that you don't feel like you're going down the same corridor for the hundredth time. The music and sound are, well, below average at best, but it wasn't so bad that I felt like I had to turn it off or anything.

Now, as for the actualy gameplay. It's a side-scrolling shooter, you have your axe, a rifle, and can pick up various "special" weapons along the way. The axe and rifle work well enough for most enemies, and the different special weapons each behave a little differently, which spices things up a bit. I played on medium difficulty, and it wasn't too difficult, but there is one fatal gameplay flaw that kind of ruins the game. Whenever you get hit by anything other than a gun, you have to go through a 1-2 second "getting hit" animation where you can't move. Now, for the first half of the game, it's not really noticable, since there aren't too many enemies at one time, and most of them are shooting at you, but in the second half when the game locks you into rooms with 20-30 melee enemies? Yeah, not so fun. There are multiple times where I would get "stunlocked" by melee enemies to the point where I couldn't even move, and I just had to watch them slowly drain my health to zero while I repeated the "getting hit" animation for god knows how many times. The only way to clear those rooms is to never get hit, which, when there are 30+ killer robots in a locked room with you, is harder than it looks. This is also especially frustrating for the few "boss" sequences, in a game, where you're locked in a tiny room with a robot that's as big as your jump height, making it almost impossible to dodge, and each time you get hit you go through the "getting hit" animation so that the boss has ample time to hit you again, making you stunned again, ad infinum.

So yeah, an average game ruined by a fatal game flaw. I wish it wasn't so because for the first hour or two I played, it was actually enjoyable, which is a pleasant surprise for bundle fodder, but during the second half I was cursing the game and wanting to get it over with more than I was having fun.

Worth checking out?: Maybe
Likeliness of being bundled: Medium
Price you should pay?: ~$1 or less

With so many negative reviews it was hard for me to make the choice of whether or not to buy this game. I spent a great deal of time combing the forums to get a feel for what Bad Bots exactly was. Not to mention starting a post that insisted that games such as Bad Bots should have a demo when mixed reviews come into play.

Once the demo was made available, I spent about an hour playing Bad Bots, got a feel for the dynamics, and quickly realized that I needed this game ASAP.

That being said... The game is great. Bad Bots has an old school vibe that reminds me of a SEGA game called "Slime World." If you're into murdering blood thirsty robots and trying to save Earth from being attacked by the Titan Hauler, this is the game for you. As the only living human survivor aboard the ship its up to YOU to save the Earth from being overrun by millions of murderous robots.

Bad Bots has several different weapon upgrades and choices, tons of hidden rooms, and a great story that keeps you on your toes and guessing the whole time. Plot twists and hard bosses round out the game and make it a must have for anyone who enjoys a good platformer.

In Bad Bots you're a mechanic who finds himself on a spaceship that's overrun by berserk robots. The story begins promisingly: you find yourself in a compactor akin to Star Wars and have to escape there with a portable AI who aids you on the way. Story advances in static cutscenes like a comic.

Then you meet the first knife bots. Their animation is annoyingly clunky. The bots will be armed with guns soon, thankfully with a better animation, and so are you: they will shoot you from behind boxes and will take cover if shot, which is cool. However, it is soon realized that their damage output is appalling: if faced with a single bot, it would take forever to die, for most attacks cause 1 HP of damage and you have 100 HP. Coupled with the fact the spaceship is full of health packs with 20 HP heal each, you probably won't die unintentionally during the story campaign except maybe to the final boss (or that death trap of a compactor along the way). You can effectively charge any non-boss enemy. To amend this, the game later throws at you tens or even hundreds of melee bots, electrocuting service droids and wall-crawling critter bots whose purpose is not explained.

These "waves" become easy when you start to understand the controls. Those are at times rather quirky. Jumping, you might hold on to a ledge you did not want to. Character defaults to climbing ladders, during which you cannot shoot, and you can't fall off the ladder except by jumping sideways upwards. At the top of the ladder the character might not take off the ladder at all to the direction you wanted, requiring awkward multiple tries to get it working.

There's no music except in the title screen. The game could have benefited from some eerie music, but now it's just awkward. Maybe you could put some scifi-style music on the background.

One thing that works is the spaceship interior design. The ship has everything a dreadnought is supposed to have from living quarters to storage to waste disposal, and it's used as well within the story. However the story, while beginning nicely, quickly proves to be rather stereotypic. And due to the bots' damage output being so low, it is implausible that the bots ever succeeded killing the rest of the crew.

As a basic platformer this game is okay. I would not call it a good platformer game though and can't recommend it. There's nothing new to the genre and it's otherwise too basic and simplistic to stand out. If you're still interested and/or just love platformers, I'd advice to get it on sale. For achievement hunters, it's quite alright, as it is fast to get them all: 4 to 5 hours should do it, unless you miss some on the first campaign run like I did.

Pretty decent side-scrolling platformer. A fun and short game if you want to play something more casual. Nice comic-book style cutscenes for the story, but don't expect anything too in-depth. Pick it up if it's on sale.
