This build-your-own beat-em-up robot battler has some appeal but a lack of variety slowly bogs it down
One of the most satisfying parts of playing so many indie games is how often you get tastes of compelling variations and improvements on formulas you know. There’s no question that Robo Revenge Squad points itself in that direction with its ambition, creating a sort of “build your own brawler” sort of beat-em-up experience, giving you the opportunity to unlock new parts to use or upgrade existing ones to create your own Frankenstein that moves, attacks, and plays the way you like. There’s no question that it’s fun to play with your components, tweak them aesthetically to match your tastes, and knock your way through the game’s levels… but I’d say that after a few hours it ran out of juice for me and fizzled… though as always results may vary. That said, if you’re able to play with some friends, and each of you diversify your builds, it could probably remain more engaging and add a nice layer of strategy. Regardless of my qualms there’s no doubt that for a reasonable price it delivers a slice of refreshing variety to the Switch eShop.
