Buy? Maybe. Admitedly, this is my least favorite Puppygames title so far, which isn't to say it's bad at all, just mainly a bit less of my type. A top down action game where You control a droid with WASD and aim with the mouse - left to shoot, right to hack/transfer. The idea is to destroy all enemy droids while keeping your party alive, which is MUCH easier said than done. The game is a bit less about action skill and more about the managment of your droids, as some are faster than others, or have better defense, or have different weapons more suited for a situation. It's fairly easy for your droids to die, but it's also fairly easy to hack other droids if you have enough transfer points. The AI that commands friendly drones is fairly competent at killing enemies, but not so much at staying alive, so there is a constant need to keep them out of harm's way. Things get real challenging with boss battles and danger areas that throw tons of bots at you - I Think it's expected that you will loose some droids, which will unfortunately loose any upgrades they had. A very clever tactical, action game that use simple mechanics that just work. A challenging game, and I think I got to at least level 30 before I died, but I don't think I can improve much on my skill after my team nearly got wiped out the in the previous couple levels. If the idea of the game appeals to you, definitely get it, just realize there is a big challenge ahead of you in the later level (Ironically, the game seems too easy at the beginning).
