Sadly this is another title from GameStop’s GameTrust publishing arm that has been subpar. I am saddened that another developer’s passion project turns into a bad gameplay experience for players.
Deformers has some great ideas, letting it stand out from the rest. Nothing it tries was never seen in a game but no game combined so many things together and still kept such an easy gameplay. I really like Deformers, if I only look at its gameplay or modes and how much fun it can be to jump in for some rounds and relax. Sure, it has flaws, like the Power-Ups or too similar maps but overall Deformers is a good Multiplayer game. Unfortunately, the price and sheer lack of content are unforgiveable, nothing Deformers offers can justify it. Additionally the micro transaction only pour salt into the wound, making the price even more ridiculous. All in all, a good game may sleep behind all these horrible decisions but I doubt it will ever be honoured, Deformers is already a dead game without a playerbase, which requires you to wait for 10-20min, until your lobby has even 6 players.
Overall, Deformers is a fun and cute release that could use a considerable boost to its online community to get things going. It's a great online party game with a lot to offer, so hopefully Ready At Dawn keeps working on this one as they patch in additional content here and there. There's a solid foundation here that would greatly benefit from a larger pool of players.
Deformers has serious problems with his servers. The consequence is a bad experience with his several failures after a long time for finding matches. The best thing of the game is his beauty and funny artistic design.

But those fleeting moments of fun are still fun all the same, and I really don't believe Deformers is a bad game. Frustrated as I was during a few Form Ball matches, I was still invested and focused on them, and prancing through a few opponents to pop the ball into an empty goal is an incredibly satisfying feeling. So is smashing into another Form and sending their soon to be carcass miles into the air will never get old, but these moments are exceptions to the rule. Deformers has a broken and inconsistent core, and I can't fathom how any future patch or update can change that.
