About the Game

Plain Sight is a multiplayer arcade game about suicidal ninja robots.

Fly through space, leap over planetoids and destroy opponents with your trusty katana.

Killing fellow robots lets you steal their tasty, tasty energy. Packed with spinach-like goodness; energy makes you bigger, stronger, faster and generally more awesome.

Being all big and badass is great, but in this game it doesn’t win you the match. It makes you a target.

To win, you have to convert your energy into points...

How do you do this? Simple. Kill yourself.

Press the button and turn your happy little robot into a vicious ball of enemy-absorbing plasma. The more opponents you take out, the better.

Upgrade your robot, respawn and get stuck in again...

Plain Sight is fast-paced and the gameplay mechanics are easy to learn, well thought and provide instant fun. The controls are very smooth: no mouse lag, nor mouse acceleration, nor any stupid things like that (I'm tired of horrible console ports that suffer from these kinds of issues). The music fits the game nicely and it's refreshing to hear something different (jazz should be used more often in video games). Unfortunately, there's no music in-game, only in the main menu. Graphics-wise, it's simple (grey geometrical forms) but pleasant to watch and the lighting effects are eye-candy. The UI is small and clean so it doesn't prevent you from seeing what's going on.

If I had to choose 2 words to describe Plain sight, it would be "simple" and "fun".

Excellent game, but unless the dev pushes to strengthen the multiplayer community don't buy this unless you have friends also buying it. A real shame the playerbase isn't bigger, this is one of the freshest multiplayer games in a decade.

This game is multi-play (or bot play) only; however, everytime I tried to play there wasn't anybody else online. I think its due to the fact that the game is interesting mechanics-wise, but there just isn't enough here to justify more than 20 minutes of play.

This is a very fun little game. Single player, the bots become a little too easy to mash, but the levels are fascinating, the mechanics of the game are innovative and different. The graphics are very simple, and ensure that you're not having that modern-game problem where you didn't see an enemy coming because of the foliage or mental textures.

The only thing I'm not overly keen on is the shallowness to the play. There doesn't appear to be any tactics, or good spots to learn, etc.. Wherever you are, and whatever you're doing, it all comes down to: Who can spin around and attack first. Because you spend so much time in freefall, and that the enemies have auto-lockon, it sometimes feels that it's just a click-fest.

That aside, it's whiled away many fun hours, and I've enjoyed all the levels (I think)... If you want to have a LAN party, and need something light to fill a while between heavier FPS sessions, this is a very fun little game.

This game is awesome and super fun. Sadly there is no multiplayer crowd left. So unless you are planning to have a super fun lan party then don't buy this game.
