Battle Slots is another example of an interesting concept-turned poorly executed product. It is an RPG in theory but, to its detriment, focuses on its slot-based combat system more than any of the RPG elements. It does include a leveling system and customizable add-ons, but those features all play second fiddle to the egregiously repetitive point-and-click, spin-to-collect slot system. Every battle begins with both fighters at zero power, with no basic attacks available. The story plays out just as tediously, with equally boring dialogue to match, and the characters aren’t even animated! I guess slots and RPGs just don’t mix.

Verdict: Forget It
