    Found this game when I was on the Canadian App Store, never seen it before and it was in top free so I decided to check it out. Its actually a kids game, but still pretty fun and addicting. Not sure why TA or any others don't have any reviews, posts, links or anything about this game. Must kinda be under the radar at the moment. Hopefully this post will have TA take a look at it.

    It's available on the Canadian AppStore and one other. Download links for iOS and Andoid on bottom. Check it out and let me know what you think. Enjoy :)

    Just get a CA Apple user ID, then you can get the game from the CA App Store. It's very easy to do.

    It takes 2 minutes MAX to log out and then log back in with your CA ID, and then do a search for the title. And after that maybe another 30 secs to start DLing the app. This is FAR from being "a pain".

    It's free, totally worth a download. YMMV as far as how long it remains charming and engaging.

    Pro:
    Very polished, responsive user interface. Building bots is intuitive and fun
    You can bet parts in other matches to make them "super parts"
    Cats driving robots, what's not to like?

    Con:
    You just watch the bots fight (not unlike other Robot Wars style games), and the winner is usually decided in seconds. One of them flips over and can't damage the other, wait until it explodes. There's nothing you can do to influence it, and so far I haven't seen any genuine upsets.

    Strip away the automated battles and it's basically a gumball machine with timers. A cute one, but I have a feeling that the game is "solvable." That is, the community will quickly find an optimum bot configuration and that's all you'll end up seeing in the leaderboard. The only differences will be how much the parts and your tech tree are upgraded.

    This probably the first time I have preferred an android version over iOS. The game gives you way more stuff to collect, plus makes it easier on android.

    This one is super fun. Note: there are two versions of the game being A/B tested, one with unlimited free fights and one with "fuel" nonsense. Just delete/re download game (it resets you) to get the other version, which is super fun!
     
  11. This definitely looks like a soft launch for a new ZeptoLab game :)

    It's removed but I downloaded from my purchased list and the servers are up and people are still active.
    I think they just took it off the AppStore while they do some major updates.

    PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT: Some rando PM'ed me asking for my CA account info so he can play this "awesome game," in broken English.

    This should go without saying but if he hits you up too, DON'T DO IT. I'll give him credit for the audacity of even asking, but hell no.
