This game gives you three save slots to chose from, and it helpfully saves your game whenever you start a level or return to the main hub after completing that level.
Robots fight each other in this game, and all of them seem to somewhat sentient. This means that despite them being "just robots", they are intelligent beings, and that makes destroying them morally dubious.
You control Blitz, a multipurpose robot designed to manage and repair a massive railgun station in Earth orbit. Railguns like these provide defense from spacefaring pirates. Speaking of which, one such pirate ship just decided to attack your station.
Normally, you'd just fire on them and call it a day, but when they ambushed you they managed to disable each of the six main systems that run the base. Blitz now needs to repair the damage, chase out any NOADs that are still causing trouble, and fire the cannon.
Each system is comprised of three challenges. These resemble the missions seen in older educational games, as they consist of things like aligning mirrors to deflect lasers, balancing weights on scales, positioning conveyors, and so on. The third challenge is always a boss battle against an enemy NOAD.
Overall, you can see that the developers tried to make a decent game. The main problem stems from the fact that they were a little over ambitious. There are many types of challenges, but few challenges per type. The boss battles are very unbalanced, sometimes bordering on impossible. Then there's the massive problem with the physics engine, and if you can't fix that yourself, the game is unbeatable. Ultimately, I can't really recommend this one. There are too many games in the same price range that are far, far higher quality.
Points of Interest
The final boss is the worst of the lot, as it features multiple phases with no checkpoints. You'll need to survive all of its attacks and those of any NOADs it summons as you perform every step of the battle perfectly or you'll need to restart the fight from the beginning.
Concerns and Issues
The NOADs are a different story, as they act with a clear level of intelligence before you blow them apart.
