                will be returning this to the shop. box says android devices running 4.0 or higher, it seems thats not correct. after trying to find software on website, and the app store, i found it when looking on my pc. description says 4.2, which is not supported by either of my android devices, and its seems from looking further, only galaxy s3 or s4 work.

                Good idea, very poor implementation

                By Montmorency the Dog

                from Los Gatos, CA

                Pros

                • Looks impressive

                Cons

                • Cheap-ish Plastic
                • Poorly Tuned Mechanics
                • Very Low Quality App

                Best Uses

                  The bot is supposed to be controlled by an app. The item description says that Android devices are supported. This is actually false.

                  Firstly, the app is very poorly written - it has that typical "written by lowest bidder" look and feel, with poorly formatted text and in-app instructions that contradict the user manual. The authors of the app had very rudimentary idea of how Android devices work. They tied the Bluetooth binding functionality to a button, which they call "Option" button. In fact, Android devices never had "Option" button. What they meant was actually "Menu" button. But what's worse is that such button simply does not exist in the modern Android devices. In the recent versions of Android the "Menu" button was removed and replaced with an in-app soft menu functionality. This app fails to provide that soft menu and fails to provide any alternative solution for such devices.

                  I contacted CombatCreatures for support on this issue and this is what they replied: "The app attacknid only works on Samsung and Apple devices.
                  Therefore unfortunately this item will not work on HTC or LG Devices"

                  So, here you have it. It doesn't actually work on Android in general. It only works on "Samsung devices". Nevertheless, I'm sure owners of the newer Samsung devices will also run into the same problem with a missing button.

                  The funny part is that it does actually work on HTC devices, once you realize that "Option" button is actually "Menu" button and use it to bind the bot to the phone. My son successfully bound it to his HTC MyTouch 4G. But so far I found no solution for new devices like Nexus 5.

                  Another issue is of purely mechanical nature: the movement of shooting "plunger" is poorly synced with the rotational movement of dart drum, causing it to jam: periodically a foam dart gets pinched by the rotating drum.
