About this game
Content Rating: Everyone10+
Far in the future, advances in artificial intelligence have created the first truly sentient robot ‘System 2’. Fearing for its safety it escapes into deep space where on a distant planet it begins building a robot army and plotting the inevitable invasion of its former masters. Use a mighty array of devastating weaponry and rack up combos and upgrades to inflict maximum mayhem on the robot army, fighting your way through its massive manufacturing plant. Circuit Breakers revolves around collecting energy crystals that power your weapons. Killing robots causes them to explode violently, leaving you to collect the shards flying across the room. Featuring Aldo, Shelby, Samson and Tay, each of them is in a class of their own with bespoke weaponry for maximum impact.

There is fun to be had in local co-op, which supports up to four players, as there’s something of a tug of war that goes on when it comes to collecting the dropped energy and keeping your weaponry leveled up. Again though, it isn’t something you’ll come back to very often. Online play would have been a nice touch that might have furthered things and given the game some legs, but it hasn’t been included. With Circuit Breakers, what you get for your money is a very, very basic twin-stick shooter that is missing a lot of what makes the best in the genre so special.
I don’t want to end on a downer, though because, if anything else, Circuit Breakers is incredibly good fun. It might not entirely scratch my gaming itch but if you’ve got a love of arcade action or you’re after a pick-up-and-play game to dive into for a few minutes at a time, Circuit Breakers is absolutely the time-waster for you.
Overall, Circuit Breakers is a decent arcade shooter with a nice retro style aesthetic. I wish there was more variety and more extras, considering there are a good amount of titles similar to this already available on consoles and PC, and because of this it becomes hard to fully recommend as a purchase.
