It's alright in a frontline commando epoch style. The graphics are nice and it's Robocop. And it's free it'll be fun until you can't get any further without paying! If it was a proper walk through the city shoot em up it would be worth buying it as it is it's free and it'll pass some time.

I liked Space Monkey but that hasn't been updated in nearly 5 years so that's dead, was a sweet game though.

On the contrary, the game runs damn-near flawlessly on my iPad2; the game seems to use 100-150MB+ RAM, but I'm running 5.1.1, so no problems here.

Since my most recent post about this game, I have this to add:

After playing for 3+ hours yesterday and 3+ hours today (not counting STAMINA recharge wait time), I finally was able to grind through Tier 1 without spending any real money. That being said, the Breakthrough Node system should be either fixed to a 50:50 ratio without the need for nodes (success chance increaser) or removed completely because the payout for missions is too damn low to compensate for a failed Breakthrough Node attempt especially with this game's incessant demand for upgrading almost after every completed mission.

Also, unfortunately the OCP and Escalation missions are one-timers; once completed, there's no going back (even to the last mission). Challenge and Daily missions are always available though. If you're patient enough, you can continue to grind the Tier 1 'HARD' Challenge for $800 every 45secs when you reach Tier 2....just keep grinding cash and watching videos for gold to progress through Tier 2, which is brutal, but possible.

Pretty cool game, should have played it earlier. Too bad it has wait timers. Has some cool graphics, reminds me somewhat of Epoch.

The way they drunkenly lead you through clumsy menus and such feels like a game that was abandoned when it ran out of money. The sound is quite muted and dull, some of the animation (like when Robocop runs) really needs a once-over, but the actual aiming from cover and using various power ups is quite fun and very different from the static 'choices' in Epoch.

I don't see good things happening for this game, unless they are going to be putting in a lot more hours. It feels like it could be a fun romp if they cleaned it up and kept the action flowing. Some of these IAP disasters just fall apart when they start the game by leading you around by a nose ring and force you to just upgrade and upgrade and hurry and finish and... Yeah, we get it - let the game stand for itself already. There is a way to do IAP right, but forcing it so hard just ruins the game from minute one.
Wait what? Epoch is way better than this. There more choice in epoch, a better upgrading system, and there also isn't a giant paywall...
