Bad Bots is a retro style platform shooter with intense robot blasting action and sci-fi story.
In Bad Bots you hack and blast your way through an onslaught of truly bad 'bots to find a way to prevent a potentially planet-destroying catastrophe.
Bad Bots stars Sam McRae, a grease mechanic aboard the "Titan Hauler" space cargo ship who wakes from cryogenic hypersleep to discover the ship's robotic crew has been reprogrammed to destroy humans. Even worse, the ship has been rerouted on an explosive collision course with Earth.
You can play either the Challenges Mode to see if you can survive sixty seconds in a room with an endless supply of robots or the story-based Campaign Mode that includes boss battles, puzzles and a compelling story.
More than 170 rooms across a rich story-based Campaign Mode.
Several unique robot types including seven intense bosses.
Eight robot bustin' weapons including a rifle, explosive grenade launcher, pulsar gun and more.
A Challenge Mode where you try to survive 60 seconds against an endless onslaught of especially persistent and cranky gun-toting robots.
Fourteen challenging Achievements.
The full frackin' game! No ads, no upsells and nothing else to pay for!
Quite good platformer shooter.Furrek | June 28, 2014 | See all Furrek's reviews »
I can say it's not a great game. I did completed it once and hunted for all achiements but not sure if I will play it again. There is nothing that you can do once finished game. Sure, there is a challenge mode where you try to score as much points as possible in short time, but there isn't any world ranking. So if you wanna to compare stats with friends or some other players, the best you can do is upload screenshoot and pray if somebody is even checking them. About the game - it's not so long, it's a fun for one time. There are few nice weapons, and killing the robots is also fun. The only thing what I just wanted to be in this game is minimap - I had few moments where I had no idea where I was. It's not a big deal, but some players might have problem with that. If you are fan of retro-styled platformer shooters you can play it, but that's the only group of players I can recommend this game for 100%.
Very simple but enjoyablekardi_krueger | May 4, 2014 | See all kardi_krueger's reviews »
A rich story-based Campaign? Well, not really, the story could not be simpler and the production value (graphics, sound effects, music) overall is very low.
Yet, the game is surprisingly fun because of its fast pace and the solid controls. The design (levels, enemies, guns) could definitely use more variety, but the occasional boss fight helps to keep things interesting.
In the end, Bad Bots is a solid, albeit a bit generic game, that won't surprise you much, but at least entertains for the roughly 2-3 hours of playtime you will need for the campaign.
Great Effort!Plasros | July 7, 2013 | See all Plasros's reviews »
Bad Bots is a ton of fun and there's a lot more depth to it that what it seems most people are saying about it. There are so many nice details to the rooms. The robots become more challenging as the game goes on. I play it over and over again.
A Very Unique Indie Gamethegaminglyfe | June 20, 2013 | See all thegaminglyfe's reviews »
With lots of generic shooters and indie games trying to be just like the last successful indie game, it's hard to find a good game that can really be unique and give you an experience that you won't get playing any other game. Bad Bots is one of those games that gives you a fresh, unique experience. There are lots of weapons for you to choose from, the enemies are fun to destroy, the bosses are challenging and feel different each time. The only flaw that I can find in this game is how repetitive it gets. My favorite part of the game is the challenge horde where waves of enemies come at you. Don't expect a AAA title when you buy this, but do expect a lot of fun.
