I think this game would be interesting to watch in terms of balancing attack and defence, but it’s a bit difficult to judge how it would play out because the video’s missing a lot of important details such as how many blocks are available to the robots at the start of the match, how is the strength of the robots’ base judged for the initial 0-50 points and how is the extent of the damage to the opponent’s base judged for the 0-50 points at the end of the match. Even though it looks like interesting, the lack of information as well as the overuse of plain text over actual animation makes it difficult to follow, as well as a number of spelling mistakes throughout which don’t help. The stop-motion style animation at the end however looks alright and has enough images flowing together to give a rough idea of how the game would be played and what people would see when watching it, although neater drawings would be good. Also, I think you could get a better finish on the video if you used more flexible video editing software such as Blender VSE, Premiere Pro or Final Cut, as software like rawshorts.com can limit the range of styles and effects available to you. Good luck!
