Japan’s Simple Series isn’t all about escape-adventure titles. There’s also plenty of fun and cheap gems that pop up such as the latest title, Simple DL Series Vol 32: The Battle Robo: The Great United Front Scramble.
The budget game is just 520 yen (US$5) on the Nintendo 3DS eShop but has a good chunk of content, starting with some 100 stages to complete. You pilot a mech into combat in real-time against multiple enemy robots on 3D stages.
There are three different base frames of robots to choose from: Balanced, Power and Speed. You can guess what each does. These can then be kitted out with one of seven different classes of weapons. When the special meter is filled, you can also blast out with a special attack different for each weapon type.
If you finish off normal mode, you can also take on additional challenges such as a beam sabers swords only-mode. There’s even a survival mode where you’ve only got one life to make it through all 100 stages! It also has local multiplayer for up to four players.
Simple DL Series Vol. 32: The Battle Robo: The Great United Front Scramble is available now on the Nintendo 3DS eShop.
