Bionic Dues is a futuristic game where you have to prepare your defenses before the rise of the machines.


The game is set somewhere in the future, just a few weeks before a robots' rebellion. Rogue machines are about to wipe out a city of 12 million people. The defenders have only 50 days left to prepare before the final battle begins. The protagonist is a pilot who drives Exos, the game's equivalent of mechas.


The player controls a group of four Exos. Their movements and attacks are turn-based. During the 50-days period, the player has to gather details and HPs to upgrade his or her Exos, explore the map, prepare defenses, and set traps. On the final day, the player's preparations will be tested by the enemy invasion. Preparation is everything in this game. Stealth and tactical use of the environment are also important since Exos often cannot withstand against a horde of enemies in an open battle.


Like many roguelike games, Bionic Dues is unforgiving. It uses trial and error gameplay model so that the player usually has to fail many times before he or she can succeed. However, there are six difficulty levels that make it more tolerable for less experienced players.

Visual style

Bionic Dues' visuals are minimalistic, cold and "robotic", complete with "mechanical" voices and high-tech unit design. It presents the player with a top-down view of the map that looks almost like a circuit board.

Nice game ! Hard in the beginning, but the game will be more interesting after few hours playing.

From the tactical RPG SF in turn by lap succeeded. Attention however it is not very nice and even less animated.

Great game! Good soundtrack that does not type at all on the system even after several hours as a result. And Yes, because once we have put our noses in and we have assimilated, we do not have any more and we do not see time pass!

One of the best Arcen games, and an excellent game of tactics all short. Big coup de Coeur in 2013 for me, he received a good follow-up, like all the products of the Studio. It is considered "complete" today and will not receive any additional content.

Very nice game for those who like games of type X-COM. The grip is a bit laborious at first but once past, the game is a real pleasure. The game is very strategic both on each mission and on the missions you will choose but also on how you will equip your robots in order to defeat the enemy.

I Don't like the game at all in any of its aspects. The gameplay is too simple, everything moves through squares and becomes very repetitive. The Aesthetics of the game is very dark, all very black, I do not like anything, it becomes very boring. The idea of the game I don't like it either, it becomes very repetitive and infinite. I Don't recommend it at all, it's a game that just Mareano and tiring.

Product received for free My vote is NEGATIVE. Why? I Didn't understand. Obviously There are many features of the game and that is a positive aspect, as LONG AS they teach you to use them, and this is not the case. If You read, and You played something similar. Look, I got it free. But If you have no idea of these types of games, or spend on buying it.

A Game for all who love to count around with Items and Attributes. There are as many Variations as you can equip your Robots. Plus the turn-based Fight against enemy Robos, with max one of 4 own upfield against a sheer Power, Traps that you can exploit for your own purposes ... Especially at higher Levels of difficulty a lot of Brain Lard, I can only recommend!

To play if you like tactical strategy and the graphic aspect is not part of your priority (it is far from X-com). The only complaint I have to say is the fact that the 4 Mechs are a same unit, it is as if you had one unit and you decide from its class to each movement. I would have liked to have the 4 Mech to manage for more strategy, although this limitation forces us to think differently.
