Wow, this game is neat. I adore the idea. My only issue with it is that it's so difficult. I always die right before I hit what I assume is the end of the level!

This is a pretty enjoyable game. I like the central mechanic of it, with the activating robots. The soundtrack is pretty good too. It could have used a few more levels, but I understand that's sometimes hard with the time limit.

Nice concept and graphics. I only wish the camera centered on the newest robot that you picked up instead of the oldest alive robot, plus it was a tiny bit difficult, but fun nonetheless.

Well done, thi sis a rather interesting take on the timelimit - just run out, you got spares. Sometimes the platform detection is a bit wonkey though.

Love the interpretation of the theme. I found the best strategy was simply to focus on the robot with the highest number above their head. Were there any cases where you would have to sacrifice one robot to get another? If not, that might be a cool addition.. :)

Great game. A little tricky but the balance felt just about right for me. The mechanic works well and it's capped off with some nice fluid animation on the 'bots.

The plataform mixed with selfdestruct robots like checkpoints is a awesome combination!! The psicodelic music and the psicodelic scenario hynotize me :|

The music was a nice touch, so it was quite short making the looping a little...much. But overall the game was a pretty awesome concept and it played really well too. Awesome job on the graphics and gameplay!

Finished it. Very cool. So psychedelic.

Aug 26, 2013 @ 7:00pm

For some reason this is reall fun! But short!

Very nice concept! The game is very fun and has a great idea to it, robots that explode after 10 seconds is awesome, just the idea gives this game a very nice feel imo, the robots control well and very responsive. The game is very fun in it self, the graphics fit this and go really good. the audio was great. The game is kinda humorous, and the mood is very well done. Overall very fun and well executed game!

The little robot guy is well done and I like the game mechanic. I especially like the name of the game - one letter short from the name I chose :)

Instant smile when playing this :) great music and graphics too, well done :)

Clever usage of the theme! Nice work! The jumping was bit odd, but otherwise I didn't think it was too hard.

Awesome art on the robots, and loved waking em up

This is definitely one of the most complete end to end games and the theme is well represented. The fact that your ten seconds resets with each robot and you are simultaneously controlling all of the robots at all times is pretty awesome.

Good controls, good graphics, good music, great theme - I liked everything about this game except how I kept dying :)

@josefnpat Added Linux build :)

Aug 28, 2013 @ 4:55pm

This is great! love the music and gameplay. The idea of extending your life is pretty neat too. The effects cool too :)

It did get really difficult though after some time.

I like the theme interpretation and the robot animations are really cool! Levels are challenging in the right way. :)

Cool use of the theme, the multi-character controls really open up a lot of possibilities. Great visual effects as well.

rylgh says ...
Aug 28, 2013 @ 8:03pm

Nice job, works well. The multi-character control didn't have much effect on the gameplay, though (maybe it does in later levels, though). I always ignored all robots I was controlling except the most recently activated one.

fantastic! the concept was great. the background and visual effects made me feel like I was in an 80's music video... which was pretty amazing

Nice game mechanic. Loved the shaders here and the music added a nice Heavy Metal mood to it. Solid entry :)

Smart concept. Nice graphics!

I think the robots should not collide with each other. Sometime they create unnecessary blockage and the time runs out.

Love the music! gets somewhat tricky later, but its awesome

Good interpretation of the theme. It was original and fun. The robots look cute the levels are bit too blocky. Excellent music for a compo game.

That game was cooperative and amazing :D ... Loved the graphics and effects. Great job on this.
