About This 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...

This is the worst game I've ever paid money for. Maybe the worst game I've ever played. Do not buy this for any reason. I can't believe they're asking for money for this crap. Its totally dead. Gameplay is totally uninteresting and nauseating. Design is crappy. I haven't found a single redeeming quality of this game. Total garbage.

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.

The only reason I can't recommend this game is that the multiplayer is completely dead.

If the multiplayer was alive and kicking, it would be a blast. But, unfortunately, it went the way of so many other indie online games and the multiplayer died.

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.

Community is currently lacking, but new developments may change that. It's fast and enjoyable, good fun with friends or whoever. Combat is fun and interesting, as getting killstreaks will make you more valuable and vulnerable but more powerful. There are tons of fun modes. Clean style, fair for the price especially on sale or in a group.

Excellent game, Love the Ninja gamemode! The only issue I would find in this game is that the multiplayer community isn't reall good. So that still doesn't matter because there is single player and servers with bots but not much people though, So I'd say maybe if you want to play this game singleplayer then go ahead and buy it for sure! However if you are looking for a multiplayer game with lots of people I don't recommend this one but you can just buy it along with a few friends and join a server with bots and go like that. Some bots and players would make it cool enough, or just host your own server and choose if you want bots or not and how many!

This game is awful. There is nothing positive to be said about Plain Sight. I bought it for 75 cents and regret every penny. 0/10

this game is interesting. If you like playing as a suicidal ninja robot killing other suicidal ninja robots, this is the game for you. (also it's SUPER fast paced and can give motion sickness).

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.
