Critic Reviews for Insane Robots

Insane Robots is one of the closest things to perfect I've seen in quite some time when it comes to card battlers, and I can't wait to see more from Playniac. They say the Tetris Effect happens when you start seeing Tetris blocks everywhere, but I'm starting to see Insane Robots chips and circuitry wherever I go. Does that mean I'm addicted?

With its near-flawless design, Insane Robots is one of the best indie titles of this generation without a doubt.

Insane Robots is a deceptively simple card battle game with roguelite turn-based strategy elements that thankfully rejects a pay-to-win model.

Insane Robots is a classy and fun new spin on a tried and tested concept. It runs like a dream on the PS4, looks nice, and is entertaining both solo or in local multiplayer.

For those who enjoy card battlers, you may find something to enjoy with Insane Robots, but if you're looking for a little more depth, you may want to look elsewhere.

All in all, Insane Robots' character and map designs are cute, and the grid overworld meta keeps the downtime interesting. The wide smattering of augments are a neat way to differentiate each fight. It's hard to ignore that the experience is marred by a trove of RNG dependencies. It feels a little too random at times, bordering less on “cool card game” and more on “Pengu1n of D00M.” But when everything falls into place, it's a fun, tactical experience that rewards smart, risky maneuvers. If you love card battlers and you've got time and patience to spare, Insane Robots deserves some attention.

Insane Robots would be a great minigame in a bigger title or mobile game. It wasn't a smart choice to make it for consoles.

8 / 10

Insane Robots is a strategy game with simplified gameplay mechanics, which isn't a bad thing since the challenge is still there as you juggle your energy and deck to try to outsmart your opponents. Playing against the AI or against online opponents is a blast, and there are plenty of trophies to unlock on your road towards adding a new Platinum trophy to your collection.
