After stumbling on the game here on TV Tropes
, I gave the demo a play. It was fun, lots of explosions, so I gave it a buy. This was three years ago. During that time, there has been only one update, and all it did was fix a few minor bugs.
As it stands, the game is basically a tech-demo that plays like a physics-happy version of Worms. You control a brain. You drop in bodies that you control and tools/weapons for them. Then you either destroy the other player's "Brain" or meet some sort of objective. However, there is no single player campaign, and only a few scenarios, so most of the action is in Skirmish or Survival and that can get repetitive.
The action is fast-paced and explosive, but buggy. Many weapons are too heavy and will have your character literally sinking into the dirt as he tries to walk around. Many others are just slightly-modified copies of each other with different sprites.
Your character controls like some sort of marionette. While intentional, it's absolutely alienating to beginners and frustrating to even seasoned players, especially when you factor in physics. Your character has a jetpack, but it's far too weak to be of much use.
The AI is also abysmal. Your opponents will randomly drop in (Often dying due to bad landings), and walk/jet towards you blindly. They'll stumble into deep pits and die from falls constantly. Many players report they've been able to win matches by simply digging a few pits and watching the A Is
stumble into them endlessly. Once in range of you, they quickly sight in on you with flawless accuracy and fire until you're dead, you somehow run away, or they need to reload. Considering that a few bullets usually kill you, it's usually the former.
Allies are no better, as they will have them hop in front of your shots or even land on and kill YOU.
All in all, the game has potential, but it's developer has basically abandoned it and shows little sign of returning. The developer still claims to be developing the game, but if he's doing so, it's at a snail's pace and he's outright rude and combative to his fans when they ask about progress. I can't in good conscience advise someone to purchase this right now. Perhaps later, when/if it's actually finished. But right now, a purchase would just be rewarding a developer for abusing the "In-development" concept.
