You are lost in the depths of a gas giant mining station where things have gone very, very wrong. Move terrain to clear paths, defeat enemies, and launch yourself skyward. Get ready to shoot a lot of robots and jump into the colorful clouds of Cloudbase Prime!

The abandoned world in those clouds is full of weird and wonderful dangers. Discover friendly robots, discover murdery robots, grappling-hook onto enemy airships, fight giant bosses, and swim inside huge floating jellyfish.

Find new weapons and powers for your robot suit as you explore. You don't need them to win, but they're definitely worth finding!

Launch shockwaves through terrain that fling dozens of enemies into the air. Block homing missiles and cross gaps with hex tiles you've created out of thin air. Destroy your enemies with a good old fashioned death beam. Your weapons and ammo can be customized at any point, after you've found them! Charge shot + combust ammo? Homing shot + freeze ammo? Delicious!

Cloudbase Prime reviews and comments

Translated by

Product received for free "I so wanted to love it, this game. In the first person, you control a robot that can lift or lower hexagonal platforms. At the slightest misstep, we fall into the void. It is also necessary to shoot energy balls on enemy robots. All this constitutes the few levels of the game, to the difficulty completely random according to the situation in which you are: most of the time, if you do not go into the pile of robot that is waiting for you to shoot, you are quiet. Your goal is then to collect other allied robots and to leave by finding the cannon of the exit. One of the worries of cloudbase Prime is that it is not finished. Between the bugs, the moments where we go through the little decoration proposed, the artificial intelligence of the enemies quite laughable and some mechanics that do not work, it is the galley. I take for example these "fast" platforms meant to teleport you from one point to another: If you do not take them as the developer thinks, then they will lead you to death, in the void. Too talkative, rather short, cloudbase Prime is a small disappointment despite all its good intentions. " Find more reviews on GameSideStory.com

Robots, giant jumps and the power to move the environment Cloudbase Prime is a very original game. We Control a robot (or someone with a robotic suit) who has to perform various tasks in a world that basically consists of hexagonal columns. These columns can be linked on platforms at different heights, which makes it sometimes very difficult to jump from one to another and not fall into the void. To avoid this, we have the ability to move those columns up or down. For example we can point to the column that we have under our feet and move it one step upward, which will give us an impulse that will make us jump a lot. Once we are in the air, pressing the jump button we can plan. This is very useful to travel long distrancias. The game consists of 5 worlds of moment and each world of X zones, each one of which with different objectives. These objectives can vary between: Collect Some robotitos that are scattered throughout the level, hold a certain time without being killed, reach a specific point to get out, etc. At The End of each world we will have to face a Boss. The bosses are huge in size and the truth is that they are very funny. Typical battles in which we have to go looking for the weak point of the boss, which is changing and moving these points while we release missiles or enemies to Mansalvo. The graphics are quite simple, but the environment from the Second world the truth is that it is quite handsome. The animations of the big characters are very successful and it becomes quite pleasant to look at. The game has a good voice acting for different robots, but it is essential to have the subtitles activated to find out something. In The future It is expected that there are subtitles in Spanish. The music is not very varied, but the truth is that it is very catchy and I liked it a lot. In short, for €10 I think it is a good platform game, original and that will make us have a good time (and in some levels a bad time too). If you want to see a little in motion, I leave a video that I have gone up trying a bit the first two worlds. I Hope you like it and help you. https://youtu.be/dBlEOf-Z1jk If You like the video, you can subscribe to my channel here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC0PmKlXopkymAT1A4tLcsIQ?sub_confirmation=1 Greetings, Meow
