Mech games?

Hey guys,

I am a big Robotech, Gundam, and mecha anime fan in general and am surprised that there aren't more choices for great mecha shooters on the iPhone. I have ExZeus which I like and have tried Mech Gladiator, and some others that were less than thrilling.

Any news on upcoming mech games at all? I even liked the Voltron app for crying out loud! You would think there would be a Robotech or Gundam game ported to the iPhone since there have been console ones over the years.

Thanks and looking forward to enjoying this forum!

I suggest you to not buy heavy mach 2...there are some problems in finding objects for last mission...bad game!

I love this world!

The War of Eustrath is a mecha game, but it's a TBS, not a shooter. Still very good though.

Games tested/testing: Arcane Clash, Trainyard, Zenses, Gravity Runner

Metal Wars 2 is IMO the best, having also played Heavy Mach and Battle for Cydonia and the original Metal Wars. Get it while it's still 99 cents, you can fully customize your mech.
