Über dieses Spiel



A super frantic Arcade Tower Defense, McDROID starts gently then progressively challenges your trigger finger and your wits (and your sanity) as you multitask like a robotic-spider-doggy-thing: running, shooting, building base, herding, healing, harvesting, repairing, planting, upgrading, researching, frying giant snail-hammer-thing with a giant-tesla-on-your-back (it actually happens).

Defend your shuttle against a variety of alien species as they mutate, corrupt the ground or even turn your crops against you. Load up on, play solo campaign or join in up to 3 people in survival arenas and take the battle to the enemy. If it gets too crazy, turtle up behind your defensive perimeter and assume direct control of the turrets.

Crash landing on their home planet, McDROID the robot and her brother Shuttle find everything too quiet, their sentient Planet is now mute, lobotomized by something evil. As they venture on a quest to heal her hearts, they encounter various strange critters and must use creative strategies.

Features:
  • (Batsh!t crazy) story campaign where each level uncovers a new game mechanic and research blueprint, and where you heal a planet.
  • Hard as nail Survival Levels with persistence: your towers and economy stay with you from death to death, but also bomb trees, unfortunately.
  • Persistent Research. Do you focus on improving your lasers first or branch out into bliss engine as you climb through the research trees?
  • Drop in/Drop out Co-Op: if you're overwhelmed in single campaign, have some robot-buddies join you.
  • Persistent base building: Complete a level on Normal and you can play on in Challenge and Nightmare modes. Your base and economy will carry over but will have to withstand much deadlier attacks!
  • Unique towers that create powerful synergies such as boosting power of automatic robots or teslas chain linking.
  • Space age cartoon graphics.
  • Not 40s, not 50s, not 80s but 60 rock!
  • Harvest the only sensible resource of the future: Unfeasibly large strawberries.
  • Achievements awarded for tasks ranging from tricky to insane.
  • Find the decals and paint to customize your McDROID, they are scattered about.
  • Supports Xbox 360 controller

NOTE: QWERTY only on all platforms and no gamepad support on 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.

Ein super Tower Defense Spiel! Gegenüber der Beta hat das Spiel noch einmal ordentlich an Qualität zugelegt. Während die ersten paar Level noch relativ einfach zu meistern sind, bekommt man später doch schon mal dicke Backen, wenn man keine optimale Strategie parat hat. Jedenfalls ist in diesem TD Spiel wesentlich mehr Action angesagt als gewöhnlich. Man spielt einen kleinen knuddeligen Roboter, den man mit bis zu 3 Geräten und Waffen ausrüsten kann. Dazu gibt es das Mutterschiff und einzelne feste Turmsockel. Neben einer Einzelspielerkampagen mit witzigen Dialogen überzeugt vor allem der Coop-Modus, den man jederzeit einschalten kann, wenn man alleine nicht mehr weiterkommt. Somit kann also jeder das Spiel mit Hilfe durchspielen, egal wie dumm er sich auch anstellen mag. Die Errungenschaften und ein Sternesystem pro Level motivieren, ebenso die freispielbaren Challenge und Nightmare Varianten der einzelnen Karten, die andere Startvorraussetzungen und evtl. neue Kartenabschnitte mit sich bringen und für langanhaltenden Spielspaß, insbesondere im Coop Multiplayer mit sich bringen. Mit 3-4 Personen in den härteren Spielmodi macht das Spiel einfach noch mal um einiges mehr Spaß. Und wer nicht genug bekommt, der spielt halt einige Arenen und sammelt Diamanten für neue Waffenupgrades usw.. Mein Fazit: kaufen! 8/10 Punkte

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.
