Robot crafting sandbox. Build ‘em! Battle ‘em! A universe where you can play with amazing robots that are designed, built and even programmed by you. Everything is a robot, doors, roads, walls, bridges, safes, traps, turrets, surveillance systems, etc. Build forts, towers and architect impressive structures to protect your planets and resources. You may play solo or with friends to infiltrate, conquer planets and gather resources. Traditional keyboards and mouse can be used along with midi devices, gamepads, iOS and Android devices; the point is, any device may be used as a controller. Create your own input setups and master your designs, whether it is controlling a huge robot or entire armies of relentless minions.
Incredible robot sim. The game is already amazing in this under-developed state, and it will only get better. What really boggles my mind is the versatility of the parts. You want to build a lunar lander that can travel through space from planet to planet? I did that yesterday. Want to make a dragonfly that actually flies? Go ahead and beat me to it. If you like robotics, design, maybe a little architecture, or just like awesome robots fighting, building, exploring, mining, even terraforming, the only reason to not buy this game is that it isn't done yet. And that's not a very good reason, because this game will only get better with your support.
This is simply amazing.
With the current build the controls and parts programming is not very easy however the possibilities are breathtaking :D
Very nice graphic, physic rules (afaik getting better soon), feels like Lego Technics upgraded.
Can`t imagine how will this look with some AI enemies, etc...
Even the sandbox, as it is right now, is well worth the money!
Just be sure to view the tutorials on the website.
If you require an easy to play with game- wait untill this is finished and play Mobiloid untill then ;)
If you are not afraid of some testing and learning, go right ahead and buy this already :).
After spending much more time in"game" ;) it seems that the controlls are only getting easier with updates and it`s actually possible to make AI controlled bots already.
I really like this Alpha , even if seems to be released a bit early for my taste ...you still can spend hours in crafting and programming your robot . While its easy enough to put together cool robots in a sorta "lego" style (although sometimes parts just dont wanna join and keep bouncing off each other) , the programming part is a bit to console based for me and i hope the devs will add a interface version for that in the release game , even if just optional . Overall i dont regret spending money on this .
Still a bit buggy, but this is a pre release. Best word to describe this is WOW.
Though the game surely appeals to a more limited audiance than some of the other games on the market these days, I believe it is one of the best I have played in a long time. I love creating things, and this is probably the best game I have played to date that lets me express my creativity.
The visual programming could use some work, and copy and paste functions would be really nice ("especially for creating multiple complex robots") but the interface is still quite nice, and allows the user to get their programming done more quickly.
I bought the game (pledged my 30€ to the devs) weeeeks ago, already completed tons of bot-projects, and still... can't resist to play arround with it!
For Pre-Alpha, this game already offers enough cool stuff to really love it.
Yeah, the price is set quite high, but i never regretted that i have pleged it. If you worry about, have a look at the official fourms showroom. Have a look at what you can already do... it's freakin awesome!
And if you aren't sure what you get for your money, i recommend to have a look at the following link. It really isn't hard to learn the game controls and how to code your bot brains, but if you don't like to read simple manuals, you maybe should wait for a later state of the game ;)
Atm the devs are working on a couple of new great features... not allowed to tell *jk... physics rework, market place, battle arena, user interface... and much more... So, if you don't like it right now, you may come back later and see what's going on then =)
Why 9/10? Because the game is already one of the best games i ever bought, BUT there still are many things left to do for the devs. I am sure they wont disappoint us! Keep it up guys!
