In its own class. So criticism has the unfortunate effect of realizing there are no other games in second place. So, despite my periods of frustration with a variety of aspects of the game, it is impossible to find any substitutions. Matching can be frustrating, lamers, trolls, etc.., but it still is plenty of fun. Every few times, you get matches that are pretty darn exciting. Each individual in a game can win or lose it for the team. It does help to put some money into the game, to get decent basic weapons, and perhaps a hangar slot, but at any point you will be on a ladder reflecting your gameplay. You can get some rotten matches (quite a few), but the good ones can be transcendental. Wish I could find another kind of game as seductive and fun. A tribute to this game, but a sad testimony to the game industry in general. So, I got to go and fight a battle. Writing a review is fun, but not that fun....
Now a new version. Not sure why my win rate goes from over 60% down to 38% in a VERY short time, but that is part of the frustration new versions give. Hard to imagine where both sides are subject to the same changes that 1/2 the time one would end up on the winning team by accident.
Hopefully, I can make a hangar that somehow becomes competitive by changing the mix of bots and weapons and see what happens after getting more accustomed to the new interface...
So there I am writing a review the day before version 3 is released. Things are pretty good, as was stated. Then comes 3 with its rush, and once again I throw a hissy fit, also as shown above (including the poor taste ones). Then I just keep playing the rush mode and getting killed and bashed and violated, but after a while, I find that parts of me love being violated and start trying new hangar styles, etc... and so now, I begin to see the positive. Does my score improve. Well, yes over time, and dropping a league. So, I hope I learned not to bash stuff before giving it a decent chance. Now we hear about yet another upcoming mode of death-match. Sounds cool, but then again so do teleportation gates that can randomly change your position in a couple of spots, and that could be a stupid idea. I guess you don't knowe until you try, and then keep trying, and then ya still don't know. Hey don't take it from me, just download it and try it for yourself you lazy, cheap, coward!
Follow up: those still reading, get help! After a grueling two days, of the rush mode, battle after battle, dropped 3 leagues and got as low as a 26% win rate, now have regained the leagues, and a win rate up to 64% (at least for a little while).
For certain I know the game far better and can now understand why I was getting so destroyed initially. The new game made is an early look into the potential dynamics ahead, and is a serious boost to the game.
It is like getting a new game with each mode and each rebalancing of weapons. The weapons don't go obsolete (forever), nor do the robot designs. What does go obsolete is to stick with the same plan and hangar too long. Lots of ways to challenge oneself. Try using a hangar of "obsolete" stuff till you figure a way to win with it by using its strong points and minimizing its weaker ones.
Look forward to see how this game hevolves, they got a great thing going, and remain hopeful for the succession of future versions.
Ok, so now I got this cool idea. I want 6 of the lowest level players with 3 hangar slots with nothing but time on their hand.
Join 420U and do team play, and work your way up using the oldest and lamest weapons and bots. My pilot name is Bilch and my id is J01B6P. To join send me a request to join and have ONLY 3 level 1 bots and weapons...
By Idc. Just pick a nickname.
Realllllllyyyy. Why did the creators change the buttons(now smaller and more "toy" like) and when a robot is destroyed you can not see who defeated that robot. When you get a kill you want to know who got the credit or who was helping at that moment or who was being the kill steal(disappointing face).

Awesome game - One issue
Absolutely spectacular game, the newest update I think is great and the new game most is insane.
To the Devs - one issue I keep having since the update is that when trying to focus in on the enemy the screen starts shaking randomly, hard to explain, but it's a pretty massive issue, especially for when split second aiming needs to be done.
Game controls not working
I think you need to recalibrate your controls now when I try to play my finger slips off the moving pad the game glitches when I look around and 50% of the time when I fire my finger doesn't pick up so I would appreciate if you could fix this problem
Buen juego 👍🏼

Hasta ahora el mejor y con esta nueva actualizacion mas
Good Robot battle game...but needs more tweaking.
The latest version offers a Beacon Rush mode.
This provides a 'Strategic' element to an otherwise tactical game. Now players can decide the placement of their spawn units. Whether to reinforce a beacon under attack or plan a flank attack at a different beacon is now possible. This gives more value to mobile light or medium units to quickly take beacons and reinforce with heavy units. Another benefit is less down time for slow heavy units. The game has more action and plays quicker. This is now my prefer mode of play.
I want to see a true automatic victory condition, when you hold all 5 beacons for about 10 seconds the game ends immediately. This should help in having more variety of robots in your hanger.
Earlier reviews below
Game is still fun but needs the following tweaks
A) auto targeting system that assigns targets with priority. Currently if multiple targets are in front of you, the targeting system may target a robot that cannot be hit with your weapons and ignores the robot that is directly firing at you in the clear. You can cycle through your targets however, but by then it may be too late if you are in close range of your opponent.
B) target locking with some weapons takes too long. Needs a faster locking time......given the recent update in other weapons (pina...). Also load times may need to be reviewed.
C) it would be nice to have faster games, 6-8 min or less. Speed up the beacon control countdown.
Previous review below
It a fun game overall, however.....When I started playing this game over a year ago, there was a better balance between beacon (game timer count down) and brute force attacking. That balance is changed with later versions, so mobile units (light units) are less useful at the higher levels. The current game format promotes heavy robots only, at the higher levels. AG is more valued, at levels 9 and above. Collecting beacons does not run down the clock fast enough, so heavy units have more time to destroy lighter units. This leads to the lack of variety of robots at the higher levels. Also, if you decide to concentrate on collecting beacons and your squad loses, you will be penalize in ranking points heavily. Lastly, every now and then, I end up playing against champion players and clans. I don't mind the challenge, but a better point system is needed to compensate for the mismatch. Hopefully the next version release addresses these issues.
Been playing for about a year and loved it. I have not spent money and still enjoyed, but new update it trash.

Runs great on iPhone 5s and up, and is extremely addicting! The only issue is battery usage!!! Kills my iPhone 6s Plus battery faster than any other app I have!!! Please optimize for better battery
Great game, but addictive and glitchy at times
By Mike Stengel
The glitchy part is the most frustrating part of the game. While I like the game the glitching causes the user experience to be less than desired. Especially when they run updates. The game will tell you that there's an update but when you go to the App Store it does not give you the update but it just says open. This just create a very large loop that you can never access the game because of it. I will increase my rating once they figure out the glitches and lag in the game.
