STORY

ElRoboRick (a modest Twitch Streamer) has managed to win the 46th presidency of the United States... Three months into his Presidency he learns that no one can be trusted and the United States finds itself under attack by "Some Assholes"...

Now it is up to "The Cyborgs" (ElRoboRick's Chat Moderators) to save the day... Can they do it?

ABOUT THE PRODUCTION

I built this game from scratch, while streaming the experience over at http://twitch.tv/elroborick. For the past decade, I have been a server-side/web engineer and I wanted to do something a little different.

All of the Artwork was provided by some amazing people! @TheRealCornelius, @digitalfudge, @SnackerBoy, and @Lukasz123x

The music and sound effects were done by @ORI-TAGGART, @teodorattt, and Richard Brunton!

I've also got to give a major shout out to my viewers, who kept me motivated and who also helped me become a better Game Developer :)

Boring.

The best part of this game was humor, but only 50% of the humor. The apparently pro-Trump and pro-America self-conscious humor about a Trump like figure and America was fun. The other part of humor seems to be an internal joke from some internet group and doesn't make much sense to most audiences.

The gameplay was a mess. Levels are arranged in reverse difficulty with 1st being the most difficult and last one being the easiest. The last level has no boss which suggests unfinished design. The keyboard controls are bad and all over the place. Why use K for shield? Shift or Z or Q or E or almost any other key would have been better. Why not allow arrows as alternative to WASD? Arrows are easier to combine with space as attack you know. WASD is better if attacking happens with mouse. The function of pickables was not explained and it was hard to understand what is a pickable and what is enemy bullet in first level. The side planes with their slow and unreliable help were not enjoyable and in last level it seemed that the side characters did nothing at all.

RoboRick responds:

Thank you for the criticism, I made this game from scratch on my twitch channel, and no boss on the last level was just poor design on my part. I haven’t made a game in 15 years, I’ll try to do better on the one I am releasing for Christmas

The plot is funny, but gameplay is boring and graphics are tasteless. Not to mention other flaws. For example: you can fly off the screen, boss bullets blend with the background. This game needs much more work and polishing.

All these guys from credits write positive reviews about this game. Really? If you intend to rig your game's rating you should try harder.

RoboRick responds:

I'll do a patch fix to change the color of the bullets (that is a common complaint).

There was no intention of "rigging" anything. Keep in mind that I was the main person working on this game and the people in this credit were supplying assets and didn't really get to see it "come together" until yesterday.

How fun is this game??? LOVE! IT!

Love the tongue-in-cheek story and the nostalgia. It's like going back to old school arcade games and getting a healthy dose of homestar runner-esque art.

Was a blast to play!

RoboRick responds:

Thanks Hellaninja! And thank you for doing the beta testing on this thing, it wouldn't have been nearly as good without you :D
