Bionic Dues Review

GameSpot
23 October 2013
  • Excerpt: Bionic Dues takes place on the eve of a robot invasion, and everywhere signs suggest that the fault for their ascendency lies with us. This is a cruelly mechanical world devoid of natural comforts, from the city map that resembles a circuit board to the cold interface that envelops the entire experience. Aside from some illustrated avatars for mech pilots, it's not clear where the lines between humanity and robotica stand.
  • Pros: Massive potential for replayability, Failure has real meaning, thus prompting thoughtful gameplay, Catchy soundtrack, Fast-paced mech combat
  • Cons: Hideous visuals, Attempts at humor wear thin, Tough learning curve

Bionic Dues

  • Conclusion: Putting these minor gripes aside; if you can’t tell already, I really like this game. Indie devs don’t always come up with the goods, but Arcen are doing a damn fine job of it. Bionic Due is not only a necessary purchase for all true rogue-clone fans, but it’d easily be a pride-worthy addition to the game collection of anyone with even a remote interest in this sort of thing. This game is a great laugh and a good challenge; Arcen Games , hat’s off to you chaps.

Bionic Dues Review (PC)

Softpedia
14 September 2013
  • Conclusion: Bionic Dues is a surprisingly complex and entertaining roguelite title that will certainly keep players coming back for more thanks to its random levels and quite challenging gameplay. While the soundtrack and visuals don't exactly distinguish it among other indie titles, it's more than worth its low asking price based on its great gameplay, variety, and complexity.
  • Pros: +Complex RPG mechanics, +Varied levels, +Plenty of customization options
  • Cons: -Visuals aren't that impressive, -It is a bit hard to get into, -Story is lackluster

Bionic Dues Review | Dues The Business, Mechs Us Proud

Dealspwn
9 December 2013
  • Conclusion: The Short Version: Bionic Dues delivers tough decisions, sweeping tactics and enormous mech battles; packing massive replayability and unpredictability into its budget price point. A 'Rogue-lite' to remember and to savour through numerous scorched-earth defeats and hard-won victories.
  • Pros: Rock-solid, versatile and unpredictable tactical mech gameplay, Uniquely tense time limit demands tough decisions and sacrifices throughout multiple playthroughs, Staggeringly replayable and rewarding, especially on Ironman Mode
  • Cons: Ugly workmanlike visuals and art direction, Best played on Iron Man mode, but could be frustrating for some players, A few customisation UI gripes - more choice of weapons (vs upgrades) would have been nice

Robot per tutte le stagioni con Bionic Dues

IGN
4 October 2014
  • Excerpt: Robot. Tutti ne parlano, tutti dicono di avere un cugino che ne ha visto uno, ma chi sono davvero i robot? Amichevoli barattoli di bulloni o spietati conquistatori destinati a sterminare la specie umana? Due robot hanno il diritto di sposarsi tra loro? E, se è vero che il termine “robot” in ceco significa “servo”, si tratta di immigrati venuti dall'Europa dell'Est per rubarci il lavoro?

  • Excerpt: Empecé Bionic Dues ilusionado . La cosa prometía, un roguelite con mechas , escenarios auto generados, una gran personalización, varios tipos de enemigos… Un orgasmo friki , vamos. Pero tiene un gran lastre que ya ha hundido grandes proyectos: es injugable . Buenas ideas … Bionic Dues tiene una historia simple pero que nos sirve en bandeja el sistema de juego .

  • Summary: In Bionic Dues neem je als speler de controle over een leger van vier robots, de zogenaamde Exo’s. Deze Indie-game is een turn-based strategy spel in 2D van de hand van een kleine studio. In de nabije toekomst nemen de robots je stad over. Jij bent de enige hoop om deze van nucleaire zelfdestructie te redden. Is dit het verhaal van vier dappere Exo’s die vernuftig een vijandig leger robots bestrijden, of zal je uit frustratie het nucleaire einde van je stad verwelkomen?
  • Pros: Spelen met Exo’s, Strategische opties, Grappige beschrijvingen en oneliners
  • Cons: Frustrerende momenten, Upgraden enkel binnen de lijntjes, Cijfertjes bestuderen
