Description: BadRobots VR is an action shooter where your goal is to stop the boss from turning robots bad (they were not always bad you know). By fighting off robots in different environments and progress forward the “factory” you have the ability to slow down time a.k.a bullet-time. You’ll encounter lumberjacks, hunters, police and other types of robots on your journey to the boss who controls all the robots (who are now bad).
The game itself is straight forward, you shoot waves of robots and get score points to progress in the game and unlock more levels. When the game is finished you can always go back and try to beat your old high score, find all the hidden secrets (did I say that out loud?) or why not try the bonus never-ending-level where there will be no resting between waves.
Review: BadRobots VR is a first-person shooter of the likes we have seen a thousand times before. But what I like about this game is that it doesn’t pretend to be anything else. You download it, shoot until you get bored, then maybe challenge a friend to beat your score. There is no real storyline, no strategy, nothing to side-track you. I’m not sure this game is worth anywhere near the £5.99 asking price, but if it was a fraction of that price I might consider trying it. Sure, it’s just another shooter, but it keeps things fun and simple which I like.
