If you ever just desire strongly to play a game that makes you say, “Oh my god”, over and over again, Robotek by Hexage is the game for you.
You will be awed by the sheer depth to which a [mobile] game company can and will stoop, just to make a dime. You will be amazed at how Hexage seemingly has NO shame, whatsoever. This is a game in which you may spend 15 – 20 minutes strategizing, nearly defeat your opponent, but just due to the fact that Hexage wants to penalize you for not having forked over some cash, your opponent will do something ridiculous, like rolling 6 or 7 triples in three rounds, steal all of your robots in ONE round, and blow you away.
Maybe it’s just me, but this sort of all-too-common, pathetic scenario never ceases to make my jaw drop. Most game devs would be WAY too ashamed to pull a stunt like this, but not our beloved David Peroutka, and his ‘small studio’ of ass-clowns, otherwise known as ‘Hexage’.
“Beau Dawg” is a player (or bot?) whom I encountered three times a few days ago. Each time, s/he rolled over 10 triples through the course of the game. In one of those games, I rolled one triple. I rolled two in the other two rounds. Almost none of my hacks were effective.
Again, what can account for this?
If you are a non-paying customer, you have no doubt noticed in Robotek multiplayer that you see this message a LOT. So often, that it soon becomes pretty humorous. Add to that the frequency with which the enemy is able to succeed repeatedly, even with single hacks. To add even more to that humor, you could try reading the so-called strategy guide at hexage.net.
David Peroutka, you are the epitome of what it means to be a dickhead.
Dear David, you truly are scum of the earth in its purest form. That being said, I think all that many of us would ask of you, is to make the rigging of your games less blatant, and just not so damned cheap. The reality is, David, Pay-to-win just isn’t cool anymore, and you have got to be the shittiest game dev that mobile app markets have ever seen.
