i still remember that the developers ran a competition here in the forum to match robot pictures with their abilities.

Noise brings so many things, make my tingling skin freeze.

This game never clicked with me. Definitely try it though. Very fresh concept.

Tried it and like the concept, but it's hard. Don't think it's supposed to be. It's just the movement of the robots is difficult to control to the point of frustration. Probably should give it more of a chance

Yeah, cool concept, not so great execution. First of all, the premise is very sweet, a cool Toy Story-esque theme, but the amount of grinding/money required to power up your bots in order to be truly effective is too much to ask of players, and the gameplay itself isn't all that exciting, in spite of the coolness of being able to move your bots around.

Again, lots of cool ideas there, but it needs quite a bit of polishing. Hope this receives another pass by the developer. It seems to deserve it.

^This. I found the controls to be more frustrating that enjoyable but the overall idea of the game is awesome. Some may be more adept to this style of game than me and I don't want to sway anyone from trying it, especially for free. Too many other games to play that I enjoy more. I'd love to hear others loving it though because I really wanted to. =)

I really enjoyed this game when I picked it up. I only played on iPad, but the controls seemed fine. I haven't played in a while but I think I got more than my money's worth, and I may well play again some time.

I could see that it might work better on an iPad with more screen area to work with. But, at least for me, the controls were a pain in the ass on an iPhone. Very difficult to get the robots deployed and going in the right direction. Honestly, I didn't even make it past the first level.
