It is most easily compared to the Nintendo “Smash Brothers” series in its gameplay. It is a platforming brawler, with hidden powerups, color options, and variety of enemies that keep it interesting for a while. The AI is generally mediocre, but the quantity of enemies evens out the difficulty as you progress through the game. The format of the stages is typical- Beatread more 3 generic lvls, then arena boss fight. Bosses are somewhat challenging.
Multiplayer allows co-op mission mode arena battle . Co-op allows players to explore, find hidden objects, and get more customizing parts for your fighterbot. The arena battle allows you to knock the enemy/other players off the map, or to outright destroy them through damage.
The highlight of this game is the Character customizations. You can swap out several- each fist, foot,shoulders,hip,head, etc. Each part also comes with a special ability, whether it’s a special move, more armor, or increase in speed. Each swapped part also changes the physical appearance of your fighterbot and is reflected in gameplay immediately.
Physics and gameplay are nearly identical to smash bros, and is nearly flawless on gamepad.
Overall, if you’ve wanted Smash Bros but do not own any of the systems it’s on, this is a solid alternative. It’s fun, and addicting, though can also be repetitive over time. Any fan of Smash Bros for gameplay/style will also love this game.

Many have probably came up with the idea themselves but here's the first it has been implemented where you can battle robots for their parts and some of those parts give different unique and abilities and several can be added at one time for various combinations of robotic warriors to meet the current situation at hand. Split screen local co-op allows your kid brother to run offread more tither and yon without dragging you along the screen with him. I've been a supporter since the beginning (I believe on Indivania) the developer not only pro-actively granted me a key for Desura upon Mega's release there he/she/they made sure early supporters were informed whenever there was a new update.

This is basically Super Smash Bros with little robots... or better, it's Super Smash Bros with little robots you can create and customize the way you want, the options are many, the gameplay is simple yet incredibly entertaining, and the controls are among the simplest i ever seen (the directions to move, and two buttons to attack, and the "special" abilities combinations can beread more customized).
Like to say, it's a very simple yet incredibly fun game to play, especially if you have some friends to battle with.
The only thing that bothers me is the savefile, which is in the registry folder and is still unclear it's denomination and if it is possible to export it to other hard drives too, i hope they'll fix this somehow.
