Studios, a leading independent game developer, today announced the
beginning of the Closed Beta Test of their upcoming free to play
GUNS and ROBOTS.
Fans of the

refreshing and dynamic atmosphere with creative map design to
explore. Some groundbreaking explosions assist in making the
gameplay pure fun. Along with the fast and smooth gameplay there

exploring the map.
"As the release date approaches we are thrilled and excited for
our first get-together with our players" said Atanas Atanasov, CEO
of Masthead Studios. With the start of the first wave of closed
beta tests the team encourages feedback from players to point out
what they like and what needs to be adjusted. "The opinion of our
players is highly anticipated and important to us for determining
the future developments in GUNS and ROBOTS", added Mr Atanasov.
Most of the action in the game will be provided by the cartoon
tinheads that each player will have to build from scratch in their
garage. The real robotic war begins after players assemble their
equipment and enter the arena. The strategic element of combining
the modules must be approached with a bulletproof logic in order to
survive the death match in the game.
