In my local currency this game goes for 1.70 on a 90% discount. Bought it on the premise of being a mech and fighter jet. Not disappointed, at all.

It's short, with about 4 hours of gameplay but it delivers solid fun. It's not overly complicated and does not try to be so and it's honesty is laudable.

Trust me, get it. Good arcady action that you'll lose yourself into and now it has Steam cards, for all those Steam aficionados like me.

I never played this game on the original console so my opinions are about the PC port alone and I've never played it before until recently.

The game has a very straightforward concept where you pilot a giant robot that can also transform into a jet. While the concept is simplistic the execution is good enough to make the game entertaining and quite unique. In all missions you are introduced right into the action (After a quick mission briefing) and you’ll have to destroy enemy buildings as well as their vehicles using a variety of weapons you’ll unlock as you play. If you’re satisfied by this simple concept, you won’t be disappointed. The game doesn’t have much of a plot other than having you defend your base and destroying the enemy, and sadly the game isn’t very long being a 4-6 hour experience, but it allows you to replay the missions as you unlock them, most of the missions being quite open to different alternatives to go through them due the transforming mechanic, the weapon variety and the size of the maps.

The controls might be very clunky on the start (Especially the mouse controls) and I won’t judge the people saying it felt unplayable, it takes some time and effort getting used to it but it’s worth it and doesn’t take long to get used to the controls on both the giant robot and the jet, both which control differently and have their ups and downs on their gameplay. Customizing the controls is not hard either, and it didn’t took me long to find the most comfortable settings to play the game with, and I used a keyboard all this time. Give it some time and you’ll blast enemies with accuracy soon enough.

There’s no difficulty setting in this game, but the game’s only difficulty felt fair, challenging but not frustrating. The enemies are a bit bullet spongy, but as you unlock better weapons it becomes easier to get rid of them as well destroying everything around you. Some weapons felt a bit lame, but it also counts with many satisfying weapons that makes you feel like you’re in a Michael Bay film because of all the explosions and destruction you’ll be causing around you, and this game has plenty of destructible environments.

It’s a solid experience for those fans of action games and giant robots but it’s not flawless. Some weird experiences I had with it is that the mouse doesn’t work during the steam overlay, and any key you press during the overlay that triggers an action in the game will still work, so you can still play with the overlay open which can be annoying if you need to send a message.

All in all, I’d recommend buying it during a sale considering its limited length and some of its simplicity, but it was a great throwback to simpler times and I am extremely satisfied with the game.

This is a quick game, about 2 hours. It has a few kinks that need to be worked out, but it's fun arcade style keeps you wanting to play. It's a mix of transformers meets mechwarrior.

4/5.

A short but sweet action game. I recomend it to anyone wh like blasting through a hordes with a variety of interesting weapons. It's only about 4-6 hourse if you decide to blaze right through it.
For it's length it's pretty pricey at 10 $ but If you manage to get it on sale it'll be worth your time to grab it.
Way back in the day I got this together with Battle Engine Aquila bundled with a graphics card of all things and spent a good few days playing and replaying it.
