I will be honest, this game could use some polish, and maybe a new soundtrack, but it has managed to draw me in. It's soo hard! And something about the simplistic gameplay makes me want to keep pushing on to see what those upgrades can really do.
This game is challenging for many reasons, good and bad. On the down-side the controls and movement are not particularly optimized, the level collision is very tight and you are often getting caught and the audio is not really worth having on. But on the positive side Robot King is providing a difficulty that is rarely seen in a 2017 release, and there is real depth in the progression of the player and the challenges. A big part of it for me was learning to manage my repairs and saves.
If you long for the pain-staking progression of the NES era, and you can tolerate the blemishes, Robot King Part 1: Rebooted and Ready will definately be worth a play through since the price Steven Taylor is asking is nothing at all.
This game will not be for most people but remember before you write it off that it was free, and took a great deal of time and effort to make.
