LBX: LITTLE BATTLERS EXPERIENCE
Little boxes in the games shop, little boxes filled with tech
Forget all that cute and cuddly Pokéstuff – well,
except for the general gameplay - for Little Battlers eXperience

organisation wants, in order to be, well, nefarious with. Oh, and
lots of fighting, because that’s basically what it’s all about.

they’re all small and stuff. But hey, harness their power and you
can save the world!
The whole thing’s super-customisable,

to the meat and potatoes such as weaponry, you’ve everything at your
disposal to construct a lean, mean, almost unseen fighting machine.
Assuming that you can understand it all.
LBX can be
a bit repetitive, but at least the robots don’t all look just the
