Critics around the world are already getting into this retro run-and-gun romp. Here’s what they have to say about Bad Bots:

  •   “Bad Bots is a well put together and highly enjoyable retro styled indie title... They have successfully married the chaotic visual and combat elements of the side scroller shooter against proven modern control schemes to create a deeper experience.- Capsule Computers
  •  “Bad Bots offers simple but fun gameplay reminiscent of platformers from the ‘90s.- The Leet
  •  “This is definitely worth picking up for people into the retro scene.– Halfbeard’s HUD
  •  “Bad Bots lives up to everything it claims to be...  When you have a solid game like this, time flies while you’re killing bots and trying to save the world.– Gaming Shogun
