Humans are a thing of the past...
Rotten Circuits is a 2D Top-Down Shooter with soulslike elements. You are a robot in a mysterious world, fighting on the frontlines.
Using two guns at the same time, you can find unique weapon combinations to outsmart your enemies. Your only protection is an energy shield and your only way to heal is at Memory Upload Stations.

I did write this as a review, but I can't seem to find where it went so I'm going to post it again here: The demo is very promising, and currently playable and fun, if you play it you won't be disappointed. That being said there are a few things which I think could be improved upon, the reason I gave five stars and not four, is because I want this game to get seen and also I understand it's only a demo, either way the main things that I think need improving are the music, font and art. The music needs longer loops and generally more instead of just one loop (It can get annoying having the same loop repeat over and over, specifically the outdoor one) on the font I think the W/M are a little hard to read, but maybe that's just me. The art I think needs a little more polishing here and there (Specifically on the player) And if your still reading this your obviously interested and should just go play the game already!
Thanks a lot for the review and the feedback! I hope I can give a satisfying answer to all your issues:
Wow! This is pretty great! Bug report: I think I may have been able to damage that final boss guy before I hit he to talk to him, not sure tho!
Thank you! You can't damage him, but you can temporarily destroy his shield before the fight. Will be fixed eventually :)
