The game has potential but it feels like it's still in its second draft. Happily, there are no bugs (pun not intended). It was easy to learn -- though there were a few upgrades/structures that weren't very clear that you would only learn by experimentation. Traps were cool but the fire trap was the only one that proved useful. Likewise, the cannon was the only useful building. The gameplay is easy enough but I didn't feel like there was enough to do. There are only four levels, five types of units, and a handful of buildings. Many people complain that the AI wasn't smart enough but I didn't experience any problems with that. This was one of the more enjoyable aspects of the game. The builders just automatically did their thing. I'd like the developer to allow me to purchase and place my own bases, traps, and weapons instead of finding them on the map (or both). This would add tremendous strategy to the game, along with replay value. Perhaps, then, the other traps/buildings would be more useful. I think my largest gripe is the graphics. I think this "8-bit" style was cute a decade ago but now it just seems lazy.

The game is an excellent example of easy to learn, hard to master. Each round lasts about half an hour to an hour before you get overrun. It's lacking in a few ways, like the fighters and defenders disengaging after killing a target even if there's more right there. So long as this game gets a bit more polish and maybe a few options concerning troop movement/targeting then I see no reason to uninstall

The game is alright.... it's a good concept except whenever you reach late game then that's it... you can have all the energy you want and not have to worry about losing. The bugs have too much health while your robots do little to no damage to them. Turrets help a little but it still takes several shots just to kill one bug but it doesn't help when you have a swarm of them coming. Game could use some improvements.
