About the Game
Bad Bots is a side-scrolling shooter that tasks you with destroying hordes of killer robots in order to avoid a huge catastrophe. It comes from indie developer Point 5 Projects and released on both the PC and Mac.
Bad Bots is not only just another 2D indie title, but another that exhibits how its developers neglect understanding basic platforming fundamentals. Although the gameplay has its moments, it doesn't take long for the experience to turn one dimensional, repetitive, and inducing instances of mental exhaustion. The lack of music gives a feeling of a game incomplete and although the story is short (thankfully) and predictable there was enough leg room to further flesh it out. No doubt, Bad Bots is a creation that came off the assembly line prematurely and even for indie titles that's still undeserving of cut slack.
