Reviews[edit | edit source]

Shmendric: "A relatively simple gameplay, but the level of difficulty is really not easy. Especially when flying, it's easy to hit a platform and lose one of its precious robots. This is a very difficult game, especially in breakneck flights due to the lethargic reaction. Converting to a car seems to me to be absolutley useless, because the higher speed does not outweigh the the missing weapon. The very reduced field of view in running, flying or driving direction adds another part to the frustration factor - this game should have been worked on for a while - if some details had been implemented a bit more convenientably for the player then might It's even a bit of fun, but that's the thumbs down."
