Sluggish, not rewarding, it's shooting is horrible, feeling of cringe.

Oh yeah, the devs abandoned the game as well, not fixing any bugs, mechanics etc. Still alot of things needs fixing and they abandoned a high potential game.

Good game - Good concept - Greedy Developers

The game in itself is fun and enjoyable. However the developers are too greedy and as a result ruined the experience.

When I say 'sparks', it means bought currency.

Two major gripe I have with this game:

Inventory Slots
The one biggest problem I have is inventory slots. You start off with a tiny inventory which requires 'Sparks' to unlock FIVE slots. Then each additional unlock, the amount of spark needed to unlock an additional five slots becomes higher.

Currently I have 40 slots in my inventory and to unlock the next 5 slots, it will cost me $4+. Even parts you have equipped on robots count towards inventory so this gets filled up very quickly.

Robot Slots
So you unlock a robot slot with sparks. But wait, they limit your inventory so you can't build anything with your new robot slot! Thus making you spend on inventory in addition to buying new robot slots.

Crates
You would think the game had enough money sink? No. When you win matches you have a chance to get crates. To stand a chance to open these crates you will have to use sparks otherwise the picklocking tool has 0.1% ~ 5% chance depending on crate level. I have no problem with this in games but when you add in the other two money sinks then this makes the game have a bad f2p model.

Conclusion
Stay away from this game unless the developer gets their head out of the gutter. Too many money sink. With the inventory limit it literally forces you to use sparks to progress. Yes you do get sparks in-game but no where near enough to make the game enjoyable on being free. I have no problem spending cash on a f2p game but there are too many money sink that are not really optional.

Pros:
. gameplay is nice and fun

Cons:
. One of the worst microtransaction games i've ever come across. Seriously 8000 sparks for a bloody paint? That's almost $100 for a paint...A PAINT.

A concise review...of course, mileage may vary (different people have different experiences, values, and expectations which will result in different opinions):

PROS:
  • Great art style
  • Good combat mechanic
  • Good bot custom creation system (except for upgrading parts, which is one of the worst in any game I've played, see below).
  • Devs are active in the community
CONS:
  • Most importantly right now: In-game purchases of boosts (credits for example) DO NOT WORK. The devs are aware of this complaint but insisted it is working fine. I have evidence to the contrary (several screenshots during and after the 24hr boost, there is no difference in credit gain whatsoever. It was a wasted purchase.
  • Tutorial is severely lacking (lobby chat has a never ending supply of new players asking what to do, how to build a robot, etc.)
  • Limited to small skirmishes of 5 v 5 (some may not necessarily mind this, but for others, it just feels to small, too "quick."
  • It's very common for players to go AFK because they get rewarded either way (even if it is a loss). This creates a serious imbalance in the small 5 v 5 match.
  • VERY limited inventory space (devs want you to buy more), which means there isn't much room for customizing or building bots. Creativity is discouraged.
  • The price increases (it isn't static) if you want to increase your inventory. Again, another discouragment of creativity.
  • Player is nickel-and-dimed for almost everything imaginable in game (customization, extra space, being able to form a squad/group with more than 2 players), etc.
  • Chat Lobby has no filter, there is no way to mute/ignore/ban players (people spam porn sites and obscenities quite a bit, again, screenshots taken).
  • Upgrading your parts is expensive, yet adds very little value. Almost all parts gain minimal durability and durability only. Each part already has numerous properties, but none (w/ exception of damage for just a few weapons) ever get upgraded. It's absurd IMO as a higher tier part ought to have a relevant increase in quality...in Guns and Robots however, it does not.
  • You get random bonus chests at time, but have to pay a lot of sparks (purchased with real cash) to unlock them.

Summary

The game is worth playing as long as the player understands that this is a game in which the player is expected to spend quite a bit of money to enjoy the full experience. However, spending money in-game (vs DLC Starter Pack) just doesn't work (for me) and the devs don't seem to be concerned with it.

It's a game I'd play casually, for kicks, but would not recommend to friends and definitely would not recommend spending money on, a lesson learned the hard way after purchasing the Starter Pack and spending sparks in-game. It's a cash grab through and through.
