BACK FROM THE BLACK HOLE

Long time no see, gals and guys! And like anyone who's been missing for a long time, we've got news, we've got stories, and we've got a lot of new stuff to show you!
We're glad to be able to see you again and to update our game after this long hiatus. We’re deeply sorry about this radio silence.

BACK FROM THE BLACK HOLE
Big companies have development hell. Small indie teams funded hand-to-mouth have their own hell — it’s a lot tinier, a lot more cluttered and without that much central heating, but it’s hell nonetheless. You probably know how it goes — a handful of lads and lasses hunched over keyboards, toiling away on the code, and the models, and the mechanics. Making a space game in an office not that spacious and drawing stars on a budget not that stellar. Eating junk food, losing sleep over work and doing work in our sleep... Not the best way to spend time — we barely noticed seasons go by.
We overestimated ourselves. We were more ambitious and optimistic than we should've been. But we don't give up. We’ve been working hard and overcoming difficulties — and now we're ready to show you what we accomplished. Here's the new version of our game —somewhat same-y, but very different. Take a look, take a bite, make a shot. Are we going in the direction you like? Come into our star sector and tell us — do you like what we've done with the place?

LONG STORY SHORT
We want our game to be fresh, exciting and fun in a simple and engaging way. So we did a lot of figuring out gameplay-wise. This is what we came up with — it might look simple, but that's the point!
Now the more you fight, the more ships you get to ride in. And the better you fight — the more powerful you become for the remainder of the combat. The gist of this is the same — you grow in level out of combat, your ships grows in level during combat. We reworked the balancing act our servers do to make sure nobody's horribly outmatched in combat, and we brought is some new mechanics to make fighting and progressing as fair as possible.
If that's what you wanted to hear — then please come and play. Give our game a chance and tell us what you think.
If you want to know the full story — read on, and let us explain to you how everything works now.

LET’S SPEAK ABOUT TIER
So while keeping the pew-pew and the ba-da-boom parts of the gameplay mostly the same, the whole «experience and levels» thing is now different. To make fights more balanced for the rookies and more challenging for the veterans, we separated the level of the player and the class of the ship.
Every player now has a Rank. In combat you earn Reputation, which raises your Rank permanently. Rank determines how many ships are available to you and how big and cool those ships can be. Which ships are cooler? Those of the higher Tier, of course.
Higher-Tier ships are more effective in combat, have tougher armor and scarier guns. Every Tier will have enough ships for every taste and playstyle, and in the near future, more than one. If you can't find your perfect ship, we're probably still fine-tuning it to release tomorrow.
You buy ships with Credits you earn in combat. Every combat, mind you — win or lose, you get more Credits and Reputation.
How quickly will you be able to buy new ships? A rookie on Rank 1 gets access to three Tier I ships. You fly each of those ships just once — that’s three skirmishes — and you go up to Rank 2, which gives you access to Tier II ships. And guess what, you’ll already have enough Credits to buy a new ship. We don't want you to toil for your new ride, we want you to have fun. Getting new ships as you level up will never be a slog.
So whatever you do, just fly out a few times and that shiny new ship of a better Tier will be yours.

FIGHT. DIE. REPEAT.
Which brings us to combat. In combat, your ship levels up — and this happens separately from your Rank. Combat Level grows as a fighting team gains experience and resets after the battle is done. The whole team shares the experience earned — so whoever gets more successful brings advantage for all their allies, and if you're a late bloomer, you'll never get hopelessly lost behind your pals.
As you go up some levels, new options for upgrading your armaments and systems become open for you. You fight, you level up, you get new human (and alien) technologies, and then you go fight some more.
What if the story goes a little differently? You fight, you miss a shot, you get blown up — and then it’s over, back to the hangar, right? Of course not!
If you get blown up, you respawn and fight again. And again. And again. The fight is over when someone wins, not when everyone else loses.
Will this turn every combat into a series of suicide runs? No, for that we have repair costs. The more you die in combat, the more Credits you need to pay to fix the ship and get it ready for combat again. The costs are still modest even you die a lot — we don’t want to keep you away from space battles. Also, they slow down after some time — we don't want to discourage your from playing just because you have a bad day. Sometimes if you got hit ten times, it's better to get hit ten times more — for fun!

KEEPING IT FAIR
Since we now have ships of different Tiers, we obviously need a way to pit only more-or-less equal ships against each other. For that we have a Balancing Machine. Well, it’s not actually called that, but we thought — why not add a cool name when you can add a cool name?
The Balancing Machine makes sure only ships of a comparable Tier get into combat and no odds are insurmountable. So if you’re, say, riding a Tier IV ship, you’ll meet only Tier III to Tier V ships in battle. So you will always be able to deal with a higher-tier ship if you handle your guns and engines competently. We want you to feel challenged — but challenged fairly and for fun.
Right now, the results are not always perfect — the Machine is fine, but we still need to figure out some of the finer details of ships' combat balance. We do our best, but the real difference comes from hearing what you like and hate about the game. So we'll pay close attention to your every experience and everything you have to say.

DRONES COMING YOUR WAY
Now, hard times call for hard measures. Combat can be balanced only if there's enough partners for everyone. And for a game that's not made a name for itself yet, that can be a challenge.
So for new players who come hungry for battle, we took a risk and added AI-controlled ships.
They won't overstay their welcome — we don't consider them a real part of the game, just a «launching pad». They're better than any interactive tutorial, as fighting them is much closer to a real game session. And they're always present, so nobody will have to wait long for their first — or second, or third — combat mission to start.
Of course, bots are dumb. They're just brains in jars, not real human pilots. So our Balancing Machine will take care of you — as soon as bots become too easy for you they will gradually leave your battles and human opponents will take their place.
Someday we'll get rid of those bots at all. If they don't rise and get rid of us first, that is.

BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE
We also have some more minor things you’ll like.
Or not so minor — like these two new maps we have for you.
Brand new and shiny! We're proud of them. Now to the actual minor changes.
First of all, we’ve made some changes to the player interface. It’s now more accessible and responsive.
Second, you can now change the graphics settings. Yeah, we probably should’ve done that sooner.

And this is all for today. We welcome you to play the new version of our game. Is it to your liking? Does it need any immediate changes? Do you like the shooting? Do you like the ships? Please play with us and then tell us what you think.

See you around. Transmission over.

About This Game

For victory you need only three tools - Cannons, Lasers and Rockets! Discover a spaceship MOBA game with 2D combat in 3D environment, wide variety of play styles and fun gameplay for casual and pro gamers alike.

We wanted to make something that we ourselves would like to play - a game chock-full of what’s cool about spaceships shooting each other up and with none of that boring stuff.
We set out to make a game with both a light-hearted gameplay that is hard to find today and deep tactical potential that allows for sophisticated approach to team play.
So we made Cannons Lasers Rockets - a fast-paced, bright and colorful space arcade equally enjoyable for hardcore and casual gamers.

In our game you will discover that:

SPACE COMBAT IS EASY
A videogame spaceship is usually not an easy ride - three-dimensional navigation makes you dizzy and disoriented. But in CLR you struggle against your opponents, not against your controls. We simplified gameplay just enough so you wouldn’t need to BE a great star pilot to FEEL like one.

SPACE COMBAT IS INTERESTING
No boring parts, only what you come for - going into combat to send some rockets into the other guy’s hull.
And if you eventually get a little tired of shooting, and start looking for more - be sure that we will give you more. Multiple game modes, a metric ton of different tactical situations, a MOBA core that creates many possibilities for fun and meaningful gameplay - and even more!

SPACE COMBAT IS FUN
We don’t really know what «realistic» starships will look like, so we don’t really care. A ship in a game should be fun to look at and fun to ride in, period. We want ships to be weird, plentiful and different - everyone will find one that is suited just for them, both in visual style and the distinct way of playing that comes with every ship.
We streamlined our gameplay as much as we could, and then we turned the coolness knob up to eleven!

How good can be a game you can't actually PLAY?

If no one is connected, you can't play online, that's reasonable. But, there is not a single option to play against IA. Not even a simple tutorial, or some kind of skirmish mode. These are essential options to learn about a game, know its mechanics. I am trying to play a game that is supposed to be polished, not a beta version, or an early access game. How good can it be if I cannot play it at all?

Despite the fact that i cant play the game past the Hangar... I would like to reccommend this game. It has great potential. The last/most recent review i read was negative. The player said that he/she was unable to exit the game without exiting. I think maybe that person wasnt paying attention...or maybe he got bugged. This game is very appealing from the videos; very easy on the eyes. There is just nobody online.

As was also said in a recent review the game can be played with a minimum of two people. I would love to try this game out. If there is anyone that reads this and would like to give it a go....Message me and we can play a match.

Note to the DEVS:

If you made it possible to play with nothing more than bots the game would likely game a crowd (again?). I know i'll be here. Once there is a crowd, the reviews can actually start to help you guys.

Thank you for your hard work....hopefully the Long Holiday, lol, will have helped you guys to get back to work.

On a second note: I had to use the game five minutes to post this....i had three when i wrote above, but it was worth it to me to have a couple extra minutes to get my opinion out there

Cannons Lasers Rockets is an epic 3D space battle MOBA.

...Or at least, it would be if you could actually play it. The game requires at least 2 online players to start a match, and at the time of writing I am apparently the only one playing this game.

20 minutes…that is all I can take of Cannon Lasers Rockets. This game, I’m sorry, but unbearable to play. The controls are delayed and the shooting is terrible. Some of the ships don’t have shooting sounds, you cannot tell how close and/or far you are away from the enemy. This game is just bad. I’m sorry to the devs but this needs more polishing. It should have stayed as an Early Access game then I would at least be like, heyy, its still in Early Access, they have an excuse but nope, full release and so bad. I do not recommend this game

Early Access Review
Posted: February 4, 2014
Nice concept, poorly executed. It's slow, controls are very weird, and it's obviously a "get it out the door" game. DO NOT BUY THE ELITE ACCOUNT. Give this game about a year before you even think about touching it.

Trust me, I understand Early Access. But come on, a POS with in-game purchases should throw up a red flag. And for The 11th Doctor, did I say it was permanently broken? No, I said give it a year like most early access titles then try it out. Quit being a child. I have quite a few Early Access titles that I don't really touch unless it's been a while or BIG updates have hit the game. Like I said, I like the concept. It's original, but I feel it could do more than 2v2/4v4. That's how it was when I played it.

This game has never worked for Steam for well over a year. It gives you a failed log in response and its been like that pretty much from day dot for hordes of people. For those lucky to get it to work, will probably grow old and start to see their grandchildren grow up as they tediously wait for people to join in, at the waiting for players screen. You see, to play a battle game you need four people to join and alas after 2 months where most just leave their game running in the background on the slim hope others will join, they eventually just give up with the notion that this was just not meant to be. However miracles do happen and once every blue moon a match begins. For these people thats when the true magic of Cannons lasers Rockets begin. 4 people who have absolutely no idea what they are doing because the tutorial only teaches you how to wasd move. Most people will blow up their own team not even realising it is their own team. Others will be pitted against people who have spent $15.00 on this game and so have everything at their disposal.


Developers = http://www.netgameslab.com/ who are the ones that promise so much but cant even deliver a working game. CLR really stands for Connection Lossed Repeatedly.

Tips for Developers.
Get servers working.
Single player against AI.
$15.00 for something that doesn't work does not give you good standing with the public.
Change your companies name and personal names so your not branded with this travesty forever.

This game was so bad, and so buggy, how buggy? I couldn't fly straight, hear any shooting sounds, and the other ships can kill you in seconds. I only played for like 7-8 min. Don't play this game, play Star Conflict, or dish some money on something. Don't even go near the PLAY NOW button, just leave this page and never come back.

Could be a good game, has a nice concept and feel, needs a lot of work doing on it though. I appreciate its an early access, but the game is unplayable at the moment. Also, 2 ships?! I do hope they increase the amount of ships as it will simply be another pay to win game. Like i said good concept, wait till at least the major bugs are patched before considering playing this game.

*EDIT*: Thanks to the developers for explaining their motives as well as adding patches, will try and play the game again soon :)

Havent been able to play this game in 3 weeks, it should not be sold in the Steam Store. It essentially doesnt work. There is no PVE option, and there are no people online to play pvp maps with. Dead game, should be removed from the store. Selling it is already borderline scammy, as you wont be able to play it.
