A very, very good game, which is quick and fun, with indefinite possibilities and therfore indefinite playability. It does need some re-weighting and polishing, but the developers are still adding to it.

Gimbal is a 2D multiplayer shooter where players build their own high altitude ships from an assortment of parts. Build high speed scouts, sneaky stealth bombers, flying tanks, laser snipers, and more! The combat is varied and there are multiple game modes. When you don't feel like fighting people online, you can set up your own bot matches.

As you collect bounties and win matches, you'll build your operating budget up and unlock new parts. Currently there's a budget cap of $6000 Trillion, but the upcoming update will lift it and add captial ship class parts!

Gimbal is an amazing top-down 2D shooter where you build your own ship! It is amazing. Not only is the combat smooth, but the physics in this game are the best of any game I have ever played. The building is fun and customizable, and in my opinion more fun than actually fighting. There are infinite possiblilities so buy it, and let your mind get to work!

I tried hard to like this game. I really did.

So, the basics of the game are as advertised. Build a ship using a variety of parts (the higher the level, the more you unlock) and fight.

Things break down pretty fast though. First, there is a cheat to get yourself to maximum level virtually instantly. (Check the Community Hub for details.) In fact, you apparently need this cheat because any other players out there are also max level, and if you want your ship to be competitive you need the best parts.

Single player mode (set up your own server and fill it with bots) exists...but really the game is supposed to shine in multiplayer. The problem is there's no such critter. There are only a handful of public servers/maps, and the most players I've ever seen on at one time are two.

In the end, there's no value here. There are plenty of games out there where you can upgrade your soldier/fighter/spaceship, with a cheaper point of entry, and more players. Nice idea, but if three months after release (as I write this) the community doesn't exist, it's not going to.
