A top-down action fighting semi-roleplaying game.

I played quite a bit of it until early 2015. Spiral Knights is an exceptional game, but unfortunately as of the last time I played it, it lacks balance and so it lacks variety.

This is an exception to Java sucks, therefore everything made with Java sucks.

Build and fight with robot vehicles.

I played a bit of it, and it was interesting but didn't really do it for me.

They won't stop spamming me. Their mailing list unsubscription doesn't work for me.

A tower defence game with space ships.

I didn't play a whole lot of this, because the novelty wore off with the first one. However, it looks like this is more of the same: Highly customizable and extremely fun, but with poor replayability. Worth a bit of coin if you're a fan of tower defence games.

I was able to utterly blow away the first two practice missions. It does look like it gets a lot harder. I think maybe this isn't really for me right now or perhaps isn't my thing any more. I think I would like this game a moderate amount if I spent more time with it.

Playing a few hours in, the UI is really annoying. That alone makes this game extraordinarily hard. I hate having to fight the game itself to figure all my shit out. I'm giving this a pass.

Like its predecessor, bonus points for the author throwing away all sense of storyline. Fuck all that shit, I just want gameplay. I'm not joking.

I didn't take notes from back then. All I have are some saved fleets. Some of the game gets extremely hard, especially with technology restrictions. I fucking hate having those restrictions. This was a big downer to playing all the way through.

Balloons threaten monkeys, and you coordinate their defence.

I'm big on tower defence games, and this is a very good one.

The flash version is liked. The Steam version is disliked. Maybe the more adult multiplay on the Steam version would make it worth some money, but not at its price.

If you have Borderlands 2, stick with it until you've played through it, through its true vault hunter mode and through every. single. DLC. There are a lot.

Then buy this, but only if you're a serious fan of Borderlands 2.

If you are new to the series and new to Borderlands 2, go buy and play Borderlands 2! It's great. This is just more of that, but with added obnoxiousness.

I can't describe it without spoiling it's best part.

I happen to like boring 8-bit games, so the initial moments of this game are just fine for me. I stuck it out, because I knew a little bit about what was to come. Even though I saw it coming, I was really moved by the introduction to "the game proper". Holy shit.

Great game, I think.. but I just don't get it. Treasure maps make no sense. Secrets are nigh impossible. The world map is hopeless. I gave it a good shot, based on old hype, but no joy.

A Connect Four-like game, with some goofyness akin to the various Tetris remakes.

Boring as sin. The free flash game from a decade ago is the exact same thing.
