  • Summary: Spare Parts tells the story of courageous robots Mar-T and Chip, who find themselves dumped out with the trash on a strange planet. Working together in co-op mode (either local or online), the mechanical duo must find a way to repair an abandoned space ship and escape the planet before evil Lord Krung can dispatch his henchmen to destroy them. Searching the hostile environments for ship parts and currency, Mar-T and Chip will also collect upgradable action parts – such as Rocket Boots - to unlock new abilities that will aid them as they rescue other stranded robots, and battle countless enemies including the relentless Krofax troopers, hostile spider monkeys and even a Super Huge Mega Laser!

    Spare Parts actually is a 2D jump'n'run with an additional third dimension. The bad camera work spoils the whole fun and the coop mode. Apart from that, the atmosphere, sound and gameplay are pretty well done and also proper for younger gamers.

    Spare Parts is a very simple game, aimed to the younger audience, which will like the design and charm of its characters. Taking into account the audience of the game, we miss some more help in certain puzzles of final bosses, as some players might get stuck.
  3. No more than a rusty, slightly warped clone of the Lego games. [Apr 2011, p.101]

    Spare Parts has a good concept and a clumsy realization. The idea is nice but the big number of technical problems transform a potentially good experience in a missed opportunity.
  5. Sloppy. Lazy. Derivative. That sums up Spare Parts, from its level and character design to the actual coding. [April 2011, p.80]
  6. Feel free to scrap this short, bland adventure. [April 2011, p.75]

    Spare Parts is a game with a fun premise and solid ideas, but the execution of that premise and those ideas are, at best, entirely muddled.

    - Fun, cheap game for a quick playthrough
    - Lack of camera control can be annoying
    - Controls sometimes act odd
    - Some "what to do" cues are missing
