    An intensive action game with amazing customization options and a funny cooperative mode.

    An enjoyable shooter with hidden depth. [June 2012, p.103]

    Shoot Many Robots' loot system is so over-the-top that it's immediately charming.

    It's a manic shooter designed to be played in co-op, but this is a small game from a little studio and the chance of it getting enough exposure to interest you and three of your mates online will likely prove problematic.

    Shoot Many Robots is not really the kind of game that you should buy full price. But if you're looking for a game with a nice co-op to play with you're friends, then look no further.

    Killing robots with the trigger-happy hick Walter Tugnut is good old school fun and includes big weapons and tons of power ups. If only it had more variation.

    These issues with pacing and balancing are compensated by the manic euphoria of the action, so if you have three reliable friends with a penchant for manic gunplay and surreal RPGs then Shoot Many Robots can be an enjoyably unpretentious distraction. Those who prefer to play solo should steer well clear, however.

    The name says it all. You definitely have many robots to shoot. Unfortunately dozens of enemies on the screen can't save this title from long-term boredom, especially if you're hunting the metal beasts alone.

    A fair co-op shooter, full of funny moments but not standing out in any particular area. Only for side scrolling shooters uber-aficionados.

    Fun with four players and amusing in parts, but nothing we haven't seen before. [May 2012, p.87]

    Inoffensive and competent, but not exceptional. [June 2012, p.67]

    You'll certainly get your money's worth by going for all the unlocks and partaking in the chaotic four player co-op mode, but it's hard to shake the feeling unfulfilled potential and lack of diversity.

    The title says it all: you do shoot many robots in Shoot Many Robots. There's still some subtleties in the game's gameplay, but they fail to dim the overall repetitiveness of the ride.

    The complicated controls and frustrating difficulty make Shoot Many Robots tough to enjoy on your own and only slightly less so in a group. If you're really craving the next Alien Hominid then this one might do for a quick fix.

    Borderlands 2D sounds like a good idea on paper, and this certainly looks the part, but it's an experience as vacuous and unrefined as its protagonists.

    Beyond an amusing style and excellent presentation the game is as deep as a particularly dry puddle, and while I have nothing against games that offer simple thrills Shoot Many Robots doesn't make levels interesting enough to make them feel anything but repetitious – and the occasional Survival levels only exacerbate the problem, not offer a reprieve.
