Anyone else even hear of this, let alone play it?

Saw this on the iTunes App store, cashed in some points from a paid survey group I'm with to get an iTunes card, and purchased it.

Big mistake.

The game has you commanding a lance of mechs against the Jade Falcons during the early days of the Clan invasion, attempting to best them across two worlds before finally joining the battle for Twycross.

The writing and voice acting is top-notch since actual veteran Battletech writers did the script, but the game itself feels so very much like a beta. Glitches were all over the place, to the point that I had to completely re-start two levels because event flags failed to trigger; I say re-start because there's no option for you to save during a mission. I also had to temporarily disable cut scenes because the cut scene in one level would cause the game to freeze.

I thought that was something thy were going to make but never did. But maybe I'm wrong if you're able to download it and play. Though sounds like it's garbage, so maybe they never officially got past the beta. Smile

You are thinking of Mechwarrior Tactics, which was cancelled.

This is an iOS game made in 2013. Its like a really basic Mech Commander for the iPad.

I got it because I haven't been able to get a group together in a while and I really wanted to play, but I could have put that $8 towards another miniature. It's just not a very satisfying product on the whole.
