As stated on previous review, the control of this game is a joke. Font is too small on iphone, oh... and Game center achievement didn't work. Luckily I got this game when its free

Lame, tedious and boring

im usually forgiving on many games, especially if the graphics r this nice, but wind up robots isnt worth the try right now. 2 stars go simply for the great graphic and sound which r quite detailed, but gameplay really fails here. All robots, while having different functions, seem to be just as useless as the other and their attack method is all the same with just a few minor changes between them. The worst part tho is the controlling, its non existent. Having large groups of enemies spawn and start dashing towards the base is almost impossible to comfortably counter. Touch responsiveness is sluggish and often fails, and the screen is too cramped u end tapping the wrong thing. controlling a clumsy camera with all this action going on doesnt really help. Needs a lot of work!

Half finished

This game has potential, it just looks like the developers went, look it works overall but forgot about several key things.

The controls and camera view are a joke. You can either zoom really far out, or awkwardly zoom in to only the middle of the arena. Tapping or dragging to move one robot somehow results in another one moving.

The bugs. Every stage I play I encounter a bug. Whether it be robots deciding not to attack, not to move, or not to go back for repairs, just making this game less playable

The slow paced nature of the game. Whilst the waves are okay, the power ups and coins are extremely slow to gain. For most of the items they are 1000 coins+. Given that you get 1 coin per monster killed, and then have to tap the coin it's too slow paced, taking hours to get even a single costume.

Overall I'd use this app in the future if improvements were made but atm, it's far too unplayable.
