Game Impressions

Cute fun from what I've seen in it so far.

Tilt your little guy left and right to avoid hazards while picking up coins and power-ups. You then use these coins to upgrade the effects of power-ups or unlock new characters (not only different looking but bestow unique abilities).

The game is free and the coins seem to come in pretty generously just from play and as mission rewards so, while you CAN buy more coins via the IAPs provided, you really don't need to (unlike most IAP based arcade games that allow you to earn some 10 coins a run as you try to get the most basic power-up in the game for some 5,000 coins!).

Fast app switching is not working at the moment and there are a few bits of rough translation but they hope to get these all straightened out in the first update or so.

5/5

P.S. Hey Antony, what does leveling up do for my character?

Sounds good. Was wondering how the IAP system would work into it. Glad to hear you can play to earn rewards.

Unlike new power-ups which can be unlocked by enter new and more dangerous galaxies on the go, leveling yourself will help to unlock new character to play (with different ability to play depend on how your strategy is: play for score, for coins or for levels).

Beside, level will show your friend how much you stick with your Robot in online leaderboard.

BTW, there's another way to unlock new Robot during game, I hope you can figure this out soon.

yup, really really enjoying this game.

The only bad thing I can say about it is that it seems to favor tilting to the right a bit more than to the left.

But aside from that, for being free, it's awesome. I haven't bought anything in the store yet, but I've got enough coins to get a few things... been playing for about 30 minutes and I've got 20k coins, with upgrades costing 5k, and unlockable characters costing 4-8k...

there's objectives that give you experience and coins, which help out a lot. There are certain power ups that are unlocked once you reach certain levels... not sure if it's levels in the game, or the level of your character yet... but either way, there's tons of content for being free. Thank you Antony! =oD

Thanks syntheticvoid for noting us the control issue, which is kind of new with us. We got some trouble while implementing calibration into Sad Robot, this is why we have to make it in the next recent update (very soon).

@LorkGek: Not like our previous game while you complete quest for score multiplier, now you complete quest for money and experience, level you up and save some coins you can buy new character with score multiplier ability, or even other interesting abilities.
