Formation Zero is a remake by L-Tyrosine with good intentions but manages to turn out pretty bland. This production uses noticeably larger sprites and perhaps too much graphical enhancements without improving the gameplay itself, making it a rather average shooter at best.

In the original, you guide a robot with the ability to transform and take flight across desolate plains while shooting stuff down. A perfect choice for a remake with plenty of potential but botched up by shoddy production and will come across as a disappointment to Formation Z fans.

Name: Formation Zero
Developer: L-Tyrosine

Why are you saying it's a shoddy production?
I'm one of the developers and I can only believe you are mistaken or you have some problems with yourself because the game is at least fine. Of course it could be better if we had more time. We made it with love and devotion so I think shoddy is your review. (and you know you already confirmed you hadn't enough time to play the competition games to review it fine). Say whatever you want about the games but your review was the most ignorant I read.

And thus passes any chance I'll try this game or anything else by L-Tyrosine. The world doesn't need any more developers who can't take criticism gracefully.
