    It's easy for many to dismiss Shoot Many Robots due to its repetitive nature, but seriously, what modern day shooter isn't repetitive? Those that stick with it and delve a little deeper will find a diamond in the rough offering hours upon hours of shootery fun.

    Highly fun. Apart from some minor annoyances in the inventory system and difficulty balance, its challenge, sense of humor and deep customization options make for a great game with long legs and huge potential for future expansion with DLC. Old school shooter fans should take heed.

    A frantic side-scrolling shooter reminiscent of classics like Metal Slug that may become tiresome in long intervals, but is more than enjoyable in short bursts.

    It's really hard to not enjoy this game. Its great gameplay will surely satisfy any fan of the genre, especially in co-op.

    Although it doesn't reach the top of the genre, fans of Alien Hominid and Contra Hard Corps: Uprising have, here, a cohesive game.

    I'd argue that Shoot Many Robots would've done better as a straightforward, linear shooter with regular acquisition of new weapons, rather than having you buy everything, but it's a relatively minor complaint. The rest of the game's fast, funny, and incredibly well-designed.

    As team-carnage games go, you'll get some mileage out of this one. Grab a few of your drinkin' buddies, and have yourselves a fun (and cheap) night of gratuitous hillbilly firepower and richly deserved robo-death. Preferably with your beer goggles on.

    The title sums up Shoot Many Robots, a kill-crazed co-op shooting spree that offers a lot of action for just $10.

    There's an accessibility to the gameplay mechanics that will appeal to dabblers, and the variety of gear, numerous leaderboards, and late-game difficulty cry out to a hardcore fanbase that enjoys those classically sadistic shoot-em-ups.

    Overall Shoot Many Robots is a game that takes an existing genre and builds on it, without ever trying to reinvent the wheel. It does what it does and it does it rather well. It isn't the best shoot-em-up you'll play, but it is one you'll get plenty of enjoyment from.

    Too bad the game doesn't offer much variety outside of its weirdo flea market.

    From the addictive loot gathering to the endless slaughter of robot overlords, Shoot Many Robots offers hours of chaotic and entertaining gameplay. Unfortunately, issues of repetition and a difficult single-player experience distract from the overall experience. Shoot Many Robots can only be recommended to gamers that are willing to take their fight against the robot apocalypse online.

    Big guns, big explosions, big waves of enemies, and full co-op support. A bit like a side-scrolling Serious Sam, then, only with more guns and more fishnets.

    Though not very original or innovative in terms of gameplay and level design, Shoot Many Robots is a solid shooter with a good amount of replay value due to the smart levelling, looting and customization systems.

    Though Shoot Many Robots is just missing that very slight edge to make this a classic alongside Metal Slug and Contra, it's a damn good competitor, and the kind of game that thrives life into the run-and-gun genre again.

    This year seems a good one for sidescroller arcade games. Shoot Many Robots keeps the bar high for this type of game, offering lots of content and a good online cooperative mode in a game that will test our fingers.

    If you are into games such as the classic game Metal Slug or other 2D side scrolling massive carnage action style games, then listen to RIP OFF and purchase Shoot Many Robots!

    Of course, if you do find a level to be too challenging, you can always jump online with some fellow rednecks and have a blast cooperatively. If you're looking for a fun little shooter that is not only enjoyable alone but also with some friends, you really need to check out Shoot Many Robots.
