Game Information

Available on:Xbox OneMay 19, 2017
PCNov 20, 2015

Developer: Sileni Studios

Publisher: SOEDESCO Publishing

Genres: Strategy, Turn-Based Strategy

Mayan Death Robots reinvents the artillery genre (think Worms) in a Mayan setting invaded by alien killing machines. Pick a robot from the roster and enter the arena to destroy your opponent's power core. Aim your weapon before the timer runs out, but don't be distracted by the pretty scenery: when the rockets start flying, you already need to plan your next move! Will you choose to move your robot to a better vantage point, or will you build defenses to keep your opponent from landing a killing blow?

Despite my enjoyment of the game mechanically, I cannot recommend Mayan Death Robots to anyone looking for a worthwhile single-player experience. For those wanting another entertaining local multiplayer game, however, it provides some unique strategic gameplay. It likely won't keep players enthralled for hours on end, but serves as a great addition to any local-multiplayer library.

An additional mechanic during the game is the use of boss battles. During these levels, the objective is the same. Part way through these levels though, both power cores disappear and I must work together with my opponent to defeat the boss, but once defeated, I go back to annihilating my opponent. These bosses are challenging and unique, each with their own style, attacks and fantastically themed music. Whoever deals the most damage gets a boost for when the power core reappears, usually a boost in attack and a higher core defence.

There's also no sort of profile system, so the only way you can track wins/losses is by hand.

Unfortunately, Sileni Studios, in attempting to present something deeper and more original than your run-of-the-mill artillery title, has painted itself into a corner.
