Rated 5 / 5 stars

First off, I want to say the game is awesome, and I have made this my go-to game when I'm sitting around doing nothing. The only bugs I still encounter is the game freezing for me or my opponent at seeming random times (while in the match), which really stinks when you were winning the match.

As for the money issue, I see lots of people complaining about it, but I think that it is implemented well. If you make sure you buy the things you need, and just save up for a level, you will have plenty of cash to buy at least most of what you want at the new level. And if you just can't seem to beat anyone, play against the computer for awhile and get some cash. If you dont spend anything for a whole level at around lvl 20, you can save up about 50,000.

My only complaint is that It seems that platinum gets worthless after awhile. having fought and won alot, getting to rank 17 Ive gotten alot of platinum, and when I spend all of my credits, I still have like 20,000 credits left.

I very much like the diversity of mech types that you can make, but at different level ranges different things work better, causing alot of frustration to people on here. However I have so far found bulltet weapons to be extremely worthless, they all have a short range, and do decent damage, but there are always better options.

To address the reviewer below me(judgementz) alot of the higher lvl torsos that have seemingly lower stats also tend to have more modules, allowing for more customization, so if you plan right, you could even have a better mech by getting one of those, being able to do just about whatever you want.

I definitely see why you have the option to buy credits and such, and I have no problems with that. My only concern is that when the game gets up and running you might make a bunch of epic mech parts that can only be bought with money, making all the free players second class.

The friend system seems kind of awkward. Right after you get beat or destroy someone you're just like "hey wanna be my friend so I can keep killing you and boosting my rank?" If a chat system was implemented during and between matches, it would be pretty cool. I don't know what is involved in making this happen, and it will still be an awesome game if you don't.

So all in all, great game, it deserves the full 5 stars, and thank you for making this awesome game for us newgrounders to enjoy!

Thank you very much :)
We are about to remove the platinum.
The next patch will place gold as the only currency for items.
We will check the balancing of physical weapons and we are still looking into adding a chat system.

Cheers!

fun game, good upgrades...could use a bit more balancing though. some weapon combo's are completely un-counterable, no matter what upgrade combinations you choose. I can basically overheat my enemies in 1-2 turns to the point where they're shutting down the rest of the game and I can just beat them up until they're dead.

also, previously purchased weapons should be available for any other weapon slot, rather than having to buy them for another slot. it's not like which slot you have something in matters strategy wise.

there is potential for some better and more versatile upgrades. say for example, the ability to disable/destroy parts of your enemies. some more melee combat options would be nice too.

currently I cannot login at all due to some error, but when I enter in the wrong password, it just tells me its invalid. enter in right password, I get an error and it tells me to try in a few minutes.....been like this for a while.

game could also use some detailed mouseover descriptions for upgrades.

user interface could be of a better design, and better looking avatars for items (smoother, less pixelated, more photorealistic). the in-game graphics could use some sprucing as well. the particle effects are very taxing for what they are, so that needs some optimization too.

Excellent game. I became addicted to it rather quickly and now play it every day. The bugs and glitches don't bother me because I understand the game is in beta but there are some none bug related problems that I think needs attention.

First off, The cost of items. Usually I would agree that the pricing is fair and that it makes you work hard for the items you get. However you can now buy credits with actual money. While this is a great feature and I understand that the game needs actual cash support, It is unfair that a rich 11 year old boy can suck $20 - $50 out of his fathers wallet once a day for upgrades and be a level 20 fully geared up godlike super mech with every upgrade available to his level, While the rest of us at level 20 have to lose/win countless battles in order to gain the credits needed for those upgrades, And by the time we get that many credits we would be level 25 and no longer need those upgrades, But rather need even MORE credits to buy the latest, and by the time we get enough credits for level 25 upgrades.... Etc etc. it just keeps going.

Also, The upgrades are a bit out of order. By leveling up you should be granted access to bigger and better upgrades, Which most of the upgrades are like this, However... There are some upgrades that actually deal less damage/Have less stats than its previous upgrade. Take the Cobra torso -level 21- and its following ruby torso (I think that's its name) -level 23- for example. Compare the stats of the two closely and you will see what I mean. The latter is more expensive and yet alot less valuable.

On another note, Being as there are only 3 types of ammo (Bullet, Rocket, Energy) It seems unnecessary to add torsos that have absolutely no bullet/rocket slots. I was looking at the stats of the torsos yesterday and thought to myself "Why on earth would I buy a torso that provides less defense/Energy/etc than my previous torso, PLUS has absolutely no bullet/rocket slots?" That would mean that over half of the guns available for purchase would be unusable. perhaps you could edit the "no bullet/rocket slot" torsos to only take out one of the two. Maybe no bullets or no rockets depending on the type of torso, But never empty slots on both types.

Other than that, I only see minor things that need tweaking. and being as its in beta everyone should understand that it takes time to fix issues and add in more content. I am by no means complaining about the game, I'm only reviewing the errors of the beta version and I am in no way saying the the final outcome of the game is bad. This is by far one of the best browser based games I have ever played and I can't wait to see the outcome of its beauty and glory once it is finished. Of course I will make a new account by then because due to the bugs as of now I have lost countless battles due to the screen freezing :P But I don't mind.

This game is still worth the full 5 stars. Congrats on making something so epic and addictive. I can't wait to see what you do with it in the future.

PS. the game needs a chat system XD

Thank you very much.
We will attend to all the issues you have mentioned.
As for the purchasing of credits and other virtual goods, please understand that this game is free while its deveopment and maintenance are not (to say the least).
A player wont be able to buy an online ranking. But as for buying credits, items, mechs and levels, these are virtual goods we will enable. :)

A very nice game indeed ! Will make it 5 Stars as soon as the biggest bugs are solved (like random action/animation launched by itself, losing complete control over the battle).
I tried to play on Heat (mighty), and i will soon switch to Energy to check if it's balanced...
By the way, is the server down or something right now ? I can't log in...

P.S: Forgive me my english mistakes, i'm French ;)
