"A really neat brawler-platformer with bright visuals and a solid combat system. A little known, but enjoyable game about robots hitting each other."

“Kicking a robot so hard that it tears through the air at high speed and crashes into the wall, destroying parts of it in the process. Beautiful.”

You customize your robot with eight parts (head, core, shoulder, hip, arms and legs). Each of the parts can have additional stats or have an active ability, up to four abilities, which means you can create your own combos. You gain these by destroying enemy robots and picking up their parts.

The bosses are played in Smash-like 1v1s where you can beat them up or knock them off the map. The bosses can be as powerful as you. The game features a fun tournament mode where you can participate in a series of boss fights.

Actually, the game is very interesting for the first couple of levels because you discover many parts that have different moves. I had a lot of fun. But as you progress further, you start getting parts that have the same attributes as the ones you already have, but either as a different part type or with a different model. After about half-way through, the level platforming becomes frustrating (one level can have you bouncing around damaging floors), and the enemies get too meaty for your combos, usually this would be alright but the way enemies fly off after a combo and not die is very irritating, especially if they go into dangerous areas and you want their parts.

Tournament mode is still fun, however. The bosses can be challenging.

The game also has multiplayer, so it could be possibly be better with friends.

Overall: 7/10, it's good for a few hours. Get it only while it's cheap!

A Smash-Bros style fighting game with elements of Custom Robo and similar games. Quite a bit of fun, though the game shines in local multiplayer the most. Campaign is nicely executed and full of collectibles, and while it's not heavy on story, I enjoyed the art themes. Has good music, though if you're not into dubstep/electronica, it can be grating sometimes. Overall, I'd recommend this.

A truly underrated gem. I decided to give it a shot on a whim and so far I'm throughly entertained.

The controls are familiar if you've played any of the recent Smash Bros games. It provides a very simple and easy tutorial for those who aren't. Chaining together combos is childsplay, but still gives you that rewarding feeling after you've landed your hits.

The robot customization is just perfect for a game like this. Your robot comes with a default set of parts that can be substituted later on for better parts with special abilities and statistics linked to them.

As you adventure through each stage, you're eventually met with a boss who provides for a decent challenge at the very end of each section. Once defeated, you're often met with a prize (a new part) with a special ability that will aid you in the next stage up until the final boss (Haven't gotten there yet).

Honestly, I didn't expect this to be such a blast to play and I'd reccommend it to anyone on the fence about making the purchase.

This is a very cool game. It takes a while to learn the controls, but the little robot is fun to play. The graphics are simple but have a very good quality rendering of the 3-d graphics.
