LEVEL (Czech Republic)May 9, 2012Great action platformer at the beginning soon becomes stereotype. Fortunately there are many weapons and tools to try so it keeps you bit longer. [May 2012]

Shoot Many Robots is simply about the endless decimation of mechanical foes, that can come in many shapes and sizes, using a vast variety of weapons and worn equipment. I can go on about how the RPG mechanics were implemented flawlessly into this title, or how their effects made absolute sense to an action shooter, but what really drives the entire experience is the challenging, fast-paced, engrossing combat all for the price of just ten measly US dollars.… Full Review »
Apr 19, 2012At last, Ubisoft see the light!!! NO more Uplay or DRM... Good riddace!!!...... Only annoying thing (nothing can be perfect) is a FacebookAt last, Ubisoft see the light!!! NO more Uplay or DRM... Good riddace!!!...... Only annoying thing (nothing can be perfect) is a Facebook gimmick when you start the game for the first time: It opens a browser and ask you to log your Facebook account, and accept a program for Leaderboard and finding friends to play and such. Click the grey 'start Shoot more Robot without it', and the game won't start. So, you have no choices but to accept it and open (or create if you don't have) your Facebook, then start the game at least once, then you can delete this nonsense an turn it off in the game's Options. I found it unacceptable business practice (especially offering a broken button that's supposed to bypass all this process) and punish it with a -2 score....... That put aside, the game is a solid 2D Solo or Coop Scroller with fast gameplay and a 'Borderline' graphic style that is quite welcome. However, controlling your beer and gun lover 'toon' is kind of limited to Up, Down, Left, Right and 2-3 angles between them. I suspect it's more designed with Controllers in mind than a Mouse (-1!...), Definitely a solid game, that don't take itself too seriously, but with enough fun and unlocking (tons) gears (by collecting bolts from dead robots)... You choose the unlocked gears you want to use (2 guns, 3 gears) then you choose the map you want and 1 of 3 difficulty level and hop you fight... You can play the same maps again and again or try a new one you just unlocked, you choice... Also, the game is scallable: the more people plays, the more robots will be spawned...... The basic moves are right, left and jump, but depending of the gear you choose, you can, for example, jump higher, slide or even fly if you wear a jetpack....... I can easily see more DLCs, in the future, offering more gears, maps, etc...... For the price, it's a nice little time killer, to enjoy with or without friends... And again it's, at last, a Ubisoft game that isn't burdened with moronic DRM! Buy this game just to show them they're on the right track... ;-)… Full Review »

Seriously, get the 4 pack and bring some buddies around to play it. If you are not having a lot of fun within 10minutes there could be something wrong with you.
Smooth 2.5d shoot 'em up action with leveling up and gear finding with a heavy dose of humour thrown in the mix.… Full Review »
