Bad Bots is a game that features many different styles, mostly focusing on a retro side-scrolling shooter feel with a fun and engaging story. Like most games in this genre there are many areas that are done beautifully, and some areas that are lacking some innovation. The game stars Sam McRae, a mechanic on the “Titan Hauler” a cargo ship, and to no surprise of the player, must face several bad bots who are programmed to kill all humans! With the story being simple enough, the game is fast paced enough to keep it intriguing. The cutscenes are all done in a comic book style way, which is a great way to show the story with the period, and the writing is clever and witty at times.
