Okay game, but boring story, and buggy.

Story: who knows? The "background info" text at the start faded away in maybe a second or so, as if it was just some tedious message to get out of the way so the game could begin (hint: if you're going to do that, don't bother with the story at all).

The game was generally okay (so basically you fire a "hard light bridge" or whatever it';s called, from Portal 2!), except (starting ~level 6 or 7 maybe) there were various situations with the blocks you pulled around, that couldn't be reset and meant you had to go kill yourself to re-do the level and be able to complete the game. Or, you could sequence-break to avoid this issue. It's kind of annoying both ways, though.

It's nice that you actually mentioned what the hell you're supposed to be doing, after only ~5-10 levels, with the whole "rescuing the princess" thing. That general story is incredibly uninspired, but it was nice to have a general justification ("he figures he can use the princess as a meat-shield to protect his fortress!", "I can't tell you Jack Schitt, because the general might be eavesdropping! Just keep going forward, for some unspecified reason! You're pretty screwed if you don't have radio contact, by the way!" ~I may have added some stuff that wasn't in the game, there).

Although the game seems to have only one soundtrack, looped, at least it's a *decent* loop. The graphics were quite polished though.

So basically, this seems fairly average. So, a 7, apparently.

Steampunk ftw

This was a very good game. The steampunkyness was put in very well and the platforming was very fun. 9/10

Great Game

Great game, love the steampunk theme...
As for Catman72 are you really that big of a fucking idiot? Really? First thing is first, have you even looked at the hands of the drivers? The hands are fleshy pink. Their suits are black. Use your fucking brain idiot!
All in all it was fun and interesting game. Lots that could be improved but otherwise good fun.

Not bad. But people are missing the point.

The color of the drivers has NOTHING to do with this game, first off. There's no "racism" here. That's like saying, "Oh, how racist. There is no other ethnicity in Feudal Japan except for the Asians." This game, however, at least tried to give us something fun and challenging.

Boring and buggy. :I

It was ok game,but after level 7 it started hetting boring.
I found some bugs,like sometimes,when you die some sounds start to loop and it sounds annoying.And I think its a bit...racist...
Why are all those train-tank things drivers black?I think that is a bit racist.
It was a good game at start,but then it started being boring&stupid. :(
