Saving cities and being a hero can be fun, but do you know what’s better? Being the one wrecking the city. That’s what you do in VRobot: VR Giant Robot Destruction Simulator, you break things and have a blast while doing it.
What does the game have to offer except an absurdly long title? A lot of fun, that’s what. You’re a giant robot with one single goal, destroy everything you can. Every single building and structure in the game is breakable. You have a time limit and everything you destroy within said limit increases your score. This does give you some sort of goal, but let’s be honest, you’re not going to stop breaking things just because the time to accumulate score has ran out.
At first, you can only use your hands to grab objects and throw them at other objects or just smash things with your fists. On its own this could probably keep me entertained for a couple of hours, but as levels progress you are given other toys to play around with, which keeps the game fresh for a lot longer. This include a tractor beam that lets you grab stuff from a distance and use it as a projectile, a transforming hand sword that gives you extra reach, a tornado gun which is pretty self-explanatory and THE HAMMER OF THOR. I find the last one particularly fun. You can use it to just hit and stuff, you can throw it and it returns to your hand after a second or two, and you can point it at the sky to charge it with lighting for an explosive attack.
Yes, VRobot: VR Giant Robot Destruction Simulator has multiplayer. Now you can play out old kaiju movies (sadly lacking the giant monsters) with your friends. In multiplayer both players have a gun that they use to take down their opponent. You can use buildings as shield or just toss them at the other guy. Whoever is better at shooting wins, simple, but fun.
VRobot: VR Giant Robot Destruction Simulator’s biggest, and perhaps only real problem is that it is lacking in replayability. Sure, you can try to beat your score or just play again and again because you like breaking things, but it will get old eventually. That being said, you’ll get quite a bit of enjoyment before boredom starts to strike so if you are considering buying the game go for it.
