Review - Droid Assault

Droid Assault is a independent game available on Steam for $5. Droid Assault is developed by PuppyGames and is a ingenious piece of work that combines old gameplay with new effects and abilities. The game follows a traditional "get as far as you can" method of scoring found in arcade machines, though it is divided into sections, so you can start the game from any one section after completing it.
