Description [en]

​McDROID is a surreal Action Tower Defense with - mega frikkin' lasers that talk - upgradable robots - Gattling turret - crop and monsters that mutate - an economy based on giant strawberries. - levels hand crafted like they used be. - Cute cartoony Borderland graphics, but it's hella tough so you may have to co-op with your friends to take down that insane Mutatosaurus.​ ​ Imagine the hectic big boss fights of RTYPE combined with the smarts and resource management of Dune 2. That's ​McDROID, our first game, made in homage of these awesome classics. It's original, with gorgeous cell shaded graphics, boasts 100 enemies on screen at once, the most badass weapons (linking teslas, wave canons, bot factories...) and unusually challenging enemies. It's a tough game, not for the faint of heart and it's got co-op multiplayer. ​

Battle robot McDROID and its friend SHUTTL fly back to their home planet M but something has gone wrong.
McDROID's family gets cut off, fending off monsters and the entire planet has been mutated by Monsanto.
Armed with an arsenal of skills, pet robots and talking giant teslas, McDROID rushes to save them.
But first, fix up SHUTTL, weaponize a little, upgrade, research and harvest those juicy giant strawberries.

Features

☑ Control the McDROID farming/combat modular robot and protect your shuttle in story mode.
☑ Co-op mode: Gather up to 3 friends to play through the story mode together OR Stand against an overwhelming army of mutants in special co-op challenge modes OR If you are stuck on a level, press the “CALL FOR BACKUP” button and someone can join to help.
☑ Simple to pick up controls mean anyone can play.
☑ Choose your strategy! Like to turtle up while sipping a brew? Deploy everything and stay behind the perimeter, Rather get your hands dirty? Charge in with your favourite weapon on your back.
☑ Persistence: after finishing a level on normal you can continue where you left off on a harder difficulty keeping your modules, plants and consumables.
☑ High on personality! Each enemy has their own personality so you’ll have to adapt. Even your weapons love to chatter - so you can tell which one is being eaten, how much of it is left and which way the enemies are coming from.
☑ Mutation everywhere! Don’t leave your strawberries unattended or they’ll mutate, and if they don’t, monsters will eat them and gain new powers. Corruptors are the worst as they’ll turn your fields into something really nasty.
☑ Location based damage : shoot the monsters in the legs to slow them down.
☑ Bliss and Corruption! Double your harvest and weapon output with bliss. Beware of corruption as it’ll damage your gear, kill your crops and boost your enemies.
☑ 6 upgradable module types: build laser, missile launchers, tesla coils, BOT factories, bliss engine, and repair pods to help defend and harvest.
☑ Research : use blue diamonds to research upgrades and unlock new sub-routines like the punching BOT.
☑ Consumables : spend blue diamonds on land mines, bliss pods and missile bots.
☑ Upgrade : buy upgrades from MK1 to MK4, increase the number of chain attack of your tesla coils, the range of your lasers to the mighty rail gun, from micro missile to massive damage grenades
☑ 22 monsters: melee, ranged, mutator, toxifier, monster generators.
☑ ​Put a factory module on your back and little droid helpers will follow you like puppies. But the cool kind of puppies, who can zap down mutants with micro tesla coils.
☑ Zoom out to a birds-eye view or right up close to use third person controls (not for the faint of heart!)
☑ Cloud saving: Start to play on your PC and when you’ve really gotta go, switch to the iPad.
☑ 60s rock: It’s the new dubstep, but if you prefer the old dubstep, hook in your iPod and turn off our music.
☑ DMC : Control nearby turrets directly, you can even draw your name on the ground with a few lasers.
