Play involves making precise jumps and hits. It's a combination of platforming and brawling. But the real fun is to be had in the surprisingly deep customisation. You can apply the parts you have knocked off your enemies to different locations on your torso. This will both help and hamper you as each part has benefits and pitfalls.
Whether you play on your own or with 4 player split screen on the Switch version, there's lots of fun to be had here. The genius is the balance of simple combat with complex plug and play robot building.
