Robot ninjas deathmatching in space: it's frenetic, furious, but unfortunately for us, it slipped in the fun stakes. Plain Sight is a novel, trippy concept, but in terms of the actual execution, we weren't convinced. Beatnik Games - Plain Sight price...

I love platforming. There's a freedom in choice-an immediate choice, in what your character is going to do. The reaction and response is invigorating to me, and some of my favorite games happen to be the ones that I can turn on and have myself 15...

First off, Plain Sight has one of the coolest soundtracks ever. It’s all jazzy film noir and I could leave it running in the background for hours. I wonder if they’ll release the soundtrack as a free download which would be cool.Alright on to the...

Robots are pretty cool. So are ninjas. When you combine the two, you get robot ninjas, which are exponentially more awesome. Plain Sight, the first game from Beatnik Games, is a quirky multiplayer title that has players controlling fast-moving robot...

International Review By GamingXP on 72

Das Spiel macht Spaß. Bis zu 20 Spieler tummeln sich auf einer Karte, was für ordentliche Kämpfe sorgt. Die Idee mit den kleinen Ninja-Robotern ist erfrischend und dank der verschiedenen Karten und Spielmodi kommt Freude auf. Sie werden aber einige...
