    Following on nicely from Made in the UK week, we take a look at Plain Sight, the latest game from UK-based indie outfit Beatnik Games. The premise is all about hyperactive, suicidal ninja robots - so the only question worth asking about the game is 'What's not to love?'

    Over at epic.lan, we are thinking this is the new "Armagetron" game for lan - quick and fun.

    Enjoyed the reference to Chesterfield in the 2nd paragraph - I wasn't expecting that!!

    I agree with Omnituens it would make an awesome lan game. 15 mins quick blast between sessions of more serious gaming that isn't a bad thing. The speed of the game & open maps reminds me of playing Quake 3 Instagib onf Q3 DM17 map.

    What I found most suprising is the 3d nature of the maps where any surface can be "the ground" actually works and doesn't leave me feeling disorientated at all. It just works, great game, lots of polish..

    Have been playing this for the past week, great fun. Also does anybody else feel like they modelled the levels in some kind of 3d drafting/engineering program like NX.

    I've been playing this for the past week too. When i heard there was an indie game with interplanetary robot ninja assassins I already knew that I should buy it. And for the €6,75 i payed for it, it was well worth it! But I agree with Bit-tech, it's not a game you should play hours, but just for a quick 20 min. gaming sessions it's perfect =)

    I got this game the otehr day and love it, can't play on line though cos it is laggy as hell for me trying to connect to servers, I love the single player though.

    I bought it just recently from the steam sale. Very under rated game. Really really really incredibly fun for an amazing indie game.
