Roboteck, from developers Hexage, is hands down the most addicting and fun game I’ve played yet on Android. Just like one of Hexage’s other games Evac, you’ll find a perfect chill soundtrack from kubatko as well as their signature neon graphics which are quite stunning to say the least. The game is based on a world campaign where you must win and take over nodes scattered across the world map. The difficulty is marked for each node and the “power” required to enter each. You’ll start off with 50 power points and gain more along with experience points, more is awarded for defeating a more challenging node than you might be ready for. You can go through this whole game without paying a dime, but if you choose to, you can purchase upgrade coins that will unlock a recharge node to gain power back. OK, enough of that let’s get to it after the break.
In the actual battle, you and your opponent start with your own lone robot where, in turn based style, will start a slot machine after selecting your type of move. The yellow mode lets you protect yourself with firewalls (a shield), hack your opponent to steal their robots, and drain your opponents energy to replenish yourself. The blue attack mode lets you fire off powerful lasers, microwaves that can penetrate your opponent’s shields for damage, and shocks to disable them from firing back until they repair themselves. The important red mode lets you call in robots to help protect you from fire and add to your arsenal of attacks with more fire power, each having their own unique characteristics. Don’t get caught without any helper robots though as you’ll be finished off by your opponent within minutes. The more matches you get in the slots, the more powerful that action becomes or multiple lesser powered actions will be performed (up to three). There is a lot of luck built into this game in conjunction with skill, and with coins you can upgrade your actions luck factor that will greatly help you out in the game. A new addition is an on-line multiplier mode to challenge others which is a huge bonus for Robotek’s replay value. I have no idea how this awesome game is still free, and though it can be challenging and frustrating at times, this is the only Android game I’ve ever continued to play over and over again for months. The battles can be short and rewarding or lengthy and stressful.
