Robocraft is a free to play multiplayer title developed and published by Freejam based on creating and upgrading robotic vehicles. A few years ago this game was one solid free to play game to play on Steam but now updates seem to have worsen the experience.
Its main objectives hasn’t changes but the constant addition of more fluff stuff in addition to loot boxes and cosmetic unlockables has made fans all over the world wish it was back to basics.
What makes Robocraft different than any other similar game is the fact that you don’t know if the design you created even works. You just mix and match blocks that you think could achieve victory in battle and just hope for the best. Overall, mistakes will be made you just have to learn from your mistakes until your vehicles are perfect every time.
Getting in battle is the easy part. You just march or float around shooting at enemies until you see their driver out of the vehicle. Every battle awards Robot Points (RP) and Tech Points (TP) as well as experience towards your rank, which is pretty much grindable. TP is spent on the tech tree, determining what items are available to you to build your robot while RP is your currency for purchasing those blocks.
After the addition of loot crates and flying blocks, Robocraft has been taken to a totally different level. While this could have been a great change and could boost the player base by quite a lot, most of dedicated players are frustrated with where this game is headed to.
Overall, Robocraft is a creative and fun to play shooter game. As every game out there, this too has its flaws but to be honest no free to play game will give you as much freedom as this one. You should really consider checking it out if you are into some strategic vehicle crafting.
