Ratings and Reviews
Great Game, Terrible Timers
Super fun game, the controls in particular are terrific! Maneuvering feels responsive and the stick/button layout is really nice. The art style is fun and has some Gundam vibes which is a plus for me.
But the timers. And the bot battles. Which are on timers. Everything but campaign missions are on a timer which has limited my play time to a couple 2-5 minute sessions a day. I would much rather pay $5 once and be able to play without waiting for multiple timers to reset.
The bot battles are broken in their current state, I’ve never lost a round even on higher levels by simply staying in one place and holding the fire button. Additionally, I’m not sure what purpose they serve other than to give you small amounts of in game currency so you can speed up the bot battle timer and do it all again.
It’s ok, but nothing worth your time
This game is decent, it has some nice features, but also a lot of bad features like the timers and the fact that mech battles are way to hard. I can easily go through the entire campaign with the ship, but the mech must get up close, and when you are up against enemies that are both faster than you, and destroy your shields like butter, it’s just a waste of time to attempt the mission. That’s really the only thing holding me back, not to mention that the only reason to level your ship and mech is to get another bot, which takes too long with the way the game is set up. How are you supposed to both grind out upgrading your ship and mech, if at the same time you have to wait on a 1 hour times to get a relic opened. And on top of that, depending on if you have the ship or mech varies what the bot does. So if you have the ship, all the bots get right up in your face, but if you have the mech, they all run away so you can’t hit anyone without taking a decent amount of damage.
Fun But Freemium
So this game is a buttload of fun, and I highly recommend the gameplay, graphics, simple-yet-fun retro storytelling, and deep systems.
Everything is timers. This game is bogged down very quickly in every direction. There are containers on a timer, PvP arenas on a timer, ship repair is on a timer, quest refreshes on a timer, and so on. If you want to progress, you have to wait. I, for one, find this tiresome. Don’t make it hard for me to play your game or punish me for wanting to play it a lot. It defeats the whole idea.
Keep in mind that none of these things directly relate to playing the game, but are vital for progress. You can, in theory, just screw around and try to get as far in the story as you can, but the game really wants you to spend the extra effort to unlock and upgrade and open and repair. Something has to give, and it sure as hell isn't going to be me making endless purchases in-game so that I can continue to play unimpeded.
