Heavy Mach - Updated (3/6/09)!

Heavy Mach was just recently updated, and included in the update is a survival mode, and a bullet shell effect.

The bullet shell effect is basically just the bullet shells flying out behind you when you fire your turret, and it's kind of cool.

The new survival mode is a nice addition, but a bit slow. Sometimes there will be 15 seconds without any machines coming at you, and when that wait is over, about 10 come on, and lag up the game. Although this mode is fun to have, it is WAY too easy, and I hope in a future update they'll tweak it to make it more challenging.

There's the link, if you want to check out the game and haven't already.

No new screenshots have been posted, although I'm sure some will soon.

yeah survival mode got boring. its like just when you think you're getting into action, they stop coming and theres a pause. then they come, stop. over and over......

I just bought the game about two days ago, so I think it's the current version. I have no idea how to access survival mode though. Please help!

The update came out about 10 minutes before I posted this, so no, you don't have it, you'll have to download the update.

It's free though don't worry.

True, but depending on the app it could lag kinda badly..
