Over dit spel



McDROID, een hectisch "arcade" torenverdedigingsspel, begint rustig en bouwt zich daarna op. Je zult zowel op je vaardigheden als je verstand moeten vertrouwen terwijl je multitaskt als een robotische spinhond: je rent, schiet, bouwt je basis, bestuurt, geneest, oogst, repareert, plant, upgradet en onderzoekt - en dat allemaal tegelijk.

Bescherm je shuttle tegen een verscheidenheid aan krankzinnige muterende aliensoorten, die de grond verderven of zelfs je gewassen tegen je keren. Maak je klaar en speel de solocampagne of bevecht de vijand samen met drie anderen in survivalarena's. Als het je te gek wordt, kun je je defensief verschuilen achter je turrets en de directe controle van de turrets op je nemen.

Na een crash op de thuisplaneet van McDROID de robot en haar broer Shuttle vinden ze alles toch wel iets te stil. Hun normaal bewuste Planeet is nu stil, bezeten door iets kwaadaardigs. Op hun missie om haar harten te genezen komen ze verschillende vreemde wezens tegen en moeten ze creatieve strategi�n gebruiken, waaronder... het planten van bomen.

Kenmerken:
  • Verhaalcampagne waar elk level een nieuw spelmechaniek en onderzoeksblauwprint blootlegt en je een planeet geneest.
  • Erg moeilijke survivallevels met blijvende voortgang: je torens en economie blijven bij je van dood tot dood, maar dit geldt helaas ook voor bombomen.
  • Blijvend onderzoek: focus je eerst op het verbeteren van je lasers of ga je voor de Bliss-motor tijdens je weg door de onderzoekstakken?
  • Co-op met 'drop-in/drop-out': als je wordt overweldigd in de singleplayercampagne, kunnen een aantal robotvrienden met je mee komen spelen.
  • Blijvende basis: nadat je een level op Normaal hebt voltooid, kun je het in de Uitdagings- en Nachtmerriemodi spelen. Je basis en economie houd je daar ook, maar je zult dodelijkere aanvallen moeten weerstaan!
  • Unieke torens die krachtige samenwerkingen opleveren, zoals het boosten van de kracht van automatische robots of het verbinden van teslaketens.
  • Cartoongraphics uit het ruimtevaarttijdperk.
  • Geen rock uit de jaren '40, '50 of '80, maar uit de jaren '60!
  • Oogst de enige zinvolle bron van de toekomst: ontzettend grote aardbeien.
  • Prestaties die worden toegekend voor zowel gevaarlijke als krankzinnige taken.
  • Vind stickers en verf om je McDROID aan te passen. Ze liggen overal verspreid.
  • Ondersteunt de Xbox 360-controller.

OPMERKING: Er is geen gamepadondersteuning voor Linux.

McDroid Is a very fun and addictive game that is in its own category. It is part Tower defense, part 3rd person shooter, part RTS. It has good graphics with good game mechanics as well. You can play for any period of time to either kill some time or just go BALLZ OUT and just destroy everything and everyone to see how far you can get within the levels. The best part of this game is that it is actually very challenging.

Each level has its own style and you have to find that sweet spot just to clear it. of course you will never be happy on how you did on the previous level, so you'll want to retry it yet again and do a different build. And the best part is, each level has a challenge level and a nightmare level where you get to play from where you left off at in your previous playthrough instead of starting from scratch. So if you end up getting your butt kicked (and you will) you can go back and redo the easier mode to set yourself up better in the harder difficulties.

And just when you thought you had a good strategy and build, you unlock and upgrade more and more towers and weapons, which is awesome, but is also like throwing a wrench in the gears, because you have to rethink everything you have just learned. But its all good, that is a great feeling and adds so much more to the game.

I would recommend this game to anyone who has just the slightest interest in Tower Defense, Challenging games, building games, cutesy games, ect. This game may not look like much, but it has more than you can imagine. Try it, buy it, get involved. Lets get this game on the map and hope for a sequel.

McDroid is simply delightful!

Blending old rock music, cell shaded graphics, kwerky humour and fresh take on old tower defence mechanics; it's a gem a game many can enjoy. Rest of review below.

http://youtu.be/LOHDHqzm0yI

In it you're a little rover returning home with your rather silly shuttle, only to find your once beautiful planet has been ruined and its spirit silent. As the two of you set out on a quest to not only find out what's happened, but to restore the planet to its once beautiful self.

This is done planting trees, and of course lasers, along with varied other weapons.
The planet has been fracked, and its resources drained. Leaving it barren and its fauna and flare horribly mutated. The game might be rather linear in its story, but it lends itself to it very well and never having a boring spot.

The shuttle is the voice of reason; to some extent. Telling what to do, how to do it and why. It's you're job to save the world, and protect not only the shuttle but yourself. As a little rover you can mount any item you can make, whether that's a little bonsai tree, a robotic repair arm, or a set of lasers!

During the missions, aliens, and mutants are hell bent on stopping you. They've become rather accustomed to the horrible lava filled and corrupted world. This is where the tower defence mechanics come in, although you simply do not drop a turret and leave. Oh no, the creatures will happily destroy them on their path towards the shuttle, and you have a lot of micro managing to do. Running around repairing turrets, upgrading them, planting trees, and harvesting strawberries and diamonds.

The two things that you depends on your fuel, and research. During the hectic battles you still need to try and harvest as many strawberries as possible. They are they currency with which you buy much needed items, and weapons. Take to long and they either disappear, get eaten, or the dreaded Strawberry DRM kicks in. Each mission has an undisclosed countdown, to when the DRM kicks in. Effectively turning the strawberry plants into crystals and halting your supplies.

This makes the game quite hectic as you have do all this, your objectives, and fend of hordes of mutants.
Adding to this is the collection of diamonds, which are used to research newer weapons, and items, along with upgrades for current ones. Not only this but they're also used to buy special items that can only be used during missions. These are vitally important. Especially for the later missions that feel almost impossibly difficult.

My biggest complaint is the severe upgrade cost for items. Some need 1000 diamonds, and they're already hard to get and keep. As once you've used them for a mission item you need to earn new ones. This is done through the various arenas and challenge missions, although they can be even more difficult than the last missions.
This forces you to have a nasty grind in the quest to get diamonds, especially since the early challenge missions only reward you with around 25-30 if you do very well.

Also you can only pick up and carry a set amount of diamonds and strawberries, and they all go into the same pouch. Meaning that in a rather difficult fight you need to try and pick up the correct ones, while managing your defences.


Overall the game blends all these things extremely well, and it's a very addictive game. I simply could not stop playing, even despite the bit of a diamond grind. I would easily recommend this game to people that just want a good fun game, with some weird humour, and lots of lasers.

This is a wonderful little game. Played this co-op in beta with my son and nephew, then 10 and 8 years old. It was a joy to play then, and it has only improved since. It combines Tower Defence with strategic action. You can place towers in pre-determined slots on the map, and additionally carry one tower on your back.

As you defend your spacecraft from attack, you have to consider repairing towers and your spacecraft, and defending and gathering of ressources. This is where co-op is particularly fun, as you can divide tasks between you, and devise a strategy together to beat a level.

The graphics are colorful and cel shaded. As with all cel shaded graphics, this can become tiresome for the eyes. On the other hand it creates a nice display of colours, and makes items and entities easy to identify.

The music is simple and excellent, fits the theme of the game well.

The story is a little generic, but is suitable and when everything combines, it makes for a great game for adults and kids.

Even in beta the game was well put together, something not always the case these days when it comes to Greenlit games on Steam. The price may be a bit too high, but the three years in the making shows, so maybe it's reasonable after all.

What if the Lorax was a robot, and his friends a shuttle and a sick planet?

That's the premiss of McDROID, where you multitask a lot - install turrets, plant trees, and seeds, farm strawberries, build factories, place a giant talking laser on your back, kite monsters, plant more trees.

Its main mission is made up of 12 levels, most can be replayed in challenge and nightmare mode with different waves and usually require vastly different strategies.

After level 5 it becomes more of an action game than a tower defense but really you can play it different ways.

I like the cell-shading, the sound design and the look and feel remind me favorably of Rochard.

It's an odd tower defense, because you play in a confied space. The pace is on the slow sid. It is fun and can be occasionally challenging. It can also be slightly confusing. I am enjoying it, picked it up in a bundle a long time ago, and it just recently hit Steam. It's a unique tower defense and I give it a cautious thumbs-up for introducing some new ideas (and plenty of nods to other tower defense games, especially the strawberries of Defense Grid.)
