Default iMech Online - 8-Player Online Mech Combat (by Mobula)



=UPDATE - 1/16=

Sorry for the lack of update!

We've been busy tweaking the game and testing it on a daily basis. At this point now, we're around a month or two from the release. There's been a lot of exciting things going on in the past few months:

Although this isn't iOS related, our friends at OUYA have been extremely excited of us and have supported us to be a OUYA launch title so that's been a fun development for us. OUYA players will be connected to the same servers as the iOS and Android players so everyone will be able to play against each other!



We'll have Regional Servers so those from the US-West/East/Europe can play at optimal connections vs others from the same region. There will be an ability to switch your region in the menus, but you're going to really want to play at the best network connection for the best performance.

As mentioned above, we've been spending a ton of time balancing the game with all the Mech, Ability, Weapon, Upgrade, and Tech configuration combinations and want to make sure that the game always remains as a skill-based game and will NOT be pay-to-win.

Thanks for being patient and we'll continue to update you guys on the status!

Really excited to see this. I used to love playing mechwarrior.

Just off the top of my head, I was thinking about the upper rotating body mechanic the mechs had in those games and how you could implement it into an iPhone game. Maybe you could make the aiming joystick be able to slide side to side or something to separately rotate the top part.

Can't wait to see how this game progresses.

Also glad to see this game coming back, albeit heavily modified and improved.
The original was very good so this one could only be better.
Roll on launch.

Hey Florendas,

We will have a modified Elo rating system for all players. That way players will be matched up to others at relatively similar skill levels and also so that the really skilled players don't always steamroll the new players.

Although we're not sure if we're going to display a full world leaderboard ranking, we have all focus on making this a truly competitive game and plan to include many features to encourage that idea.

This is looking really awesome. I loved the original iMech, so I'm glad it's making a comeback.
