Weapon type: Machine Gun
You’ve probably never met a man more full of himself than Aldo. He is the leader of the circuit breakers but his drive and confidence is unmatched and encourages the rest of the team to bring their A game. I mean, who wouldn’t want to wipe that smile off his face by sporting a bigger robot body count than him? Aldo's machine gun strikes a solid balance between range and power for an all-around great weapon.

Weapon Type: Shotgun
There are few that rival Shelbys straightforward attitude. She is often mistaken as cold, but if you have a plan you want to set in motion, Shelby’s the girl who can follow through. Her weapon of choice, the shotgun allows Shelby to get up close and personal. Every other member of the team keeps their distance from the robots but Shelby thrives when close to the enemy.

Weapon Type: Missile
There are many things you can say about Samson, but clever isn’t one of them. He is the team’s explosive guy, delivering a tremendous amount of damage with his signature missile launcher. Samson loves explosions and if you give him a recipe for a bomb, he will tell you the exact size of the explosion with 100% accuracy. So what Samson lacks in general knowledge he more than makes up for in explosive know-how.

Weapon type: Laser
Aldo would never openly admit it, but Tay is the real brains of the operation. She is responsible for creating the weapons that the Circuit Breakers team uses today. Her weapon of choice, the laser gun matches her interest in engineering. There are many scientific teams requesting her knowledge in the field of engineering, but she prefers the application instead of the theory.Other titles from Excalibur Games

Circuit Breakers reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Deutsch
With robot carnage it beckons, with Challenges it captivates-This is "Circuit Breakers"! After Steam finally allowed me to play the Game, it is now possible for me to write a small Review. The Game: Endless Carnage of artificial Intelligence, Wave-based Levels; Whether it's single or Multiplayer, it's just Fun for just about everyone! A Battle against his Friends using a Time-stopping Game Mode adds some Spice to the Matter. Four Classes are currently available to Choose from, including: Masien Rifle Shot Gun Rockets Launcher Laser Cannon (not as strong as it sounds) Unfortunately, there are no Ways to give his Character a more individual Look. In itself, there is no real Story in the Game. You are in different Areas with several Rooms and have to free all rooms one by one from the amoklaufaufenden Robots. The Whole thing is still fun, but due To the Restrictions on Classes and Individualization only 5/10 Points at the Site. The Gameplay: From a Feel, it bears a very big Resemblance To the widely used browser game "Boxhead Zombies." The Game should be played with Controllers, as this allows you to achieve much better Strike Rates. However, if you play with Mouse and Keyboard, you only have 8 Directions to shoot in (The 4 Directions and the Intermediate stages). You can enjoy the Multiplayer either in the local Game, or via the Server Function, which I have not yet been able to test myself, because I am not able to complain about it. Nevertheless, a buddy of the neber of a Seat can already make a Statement about the Gaming Experience: It makes mighty Whimsy even if it is uncomfortable to clamp in front of a Computer For two. A nice Pastime when you have the Snouts full of your Favorite Game, but for the Duration the Game includes a little too little Variety therefore 6/10 Points. My Rating: Pro: Challenges that also earn their Name Simple Control Addiction Factor through Challenges Much Fun With Little Storage Contra: Currently not yet fully matured restrictions volume balance of Music and Sound Neither Pro nor Pro Kontra: The strong Similarity to "Boxhead Zombies" All in all, I still give the Game 5/10 Points at the moment, but still recommend it, as it is still not Fully Matured, but it is still a good Gap Penitent for Waiting Times or a further battel option for He and his Friends are. The Rating may change over the coming Weeks as the game is still being edited! This Review was written as a Standings within one's own Genre.
