=== Story ===
It is the year 2100 and Earth is rapidly running out of resources. In response to the resource crisis, the two most powerful corporations, BIOSPHERE and APEX, set off to lead a space expedition. To their amazement they discovered extensive resources on a strange planet far off of even the largest star maps. It contained precious exotic minerals whose energy levels were off the chart. This was earths answer. BIOSPHERE immediately started mining in anticipation of the prosperity and promise that the minerals could have for Earth. However, APEX saw the minerals as a highly lucrative business opportunity and promptly declared ownership of the planet and its vast resources. They ruthlessly engaged BIOSPHERE’s forces intent on wiping them out. Only one corporation will make it back to Earth alive. The answer is up to you!
=== Description ===
MechCom is a new fast-paced stable 3D action RTS that is optimized for mobile devices. It’s heavily influenced by the popular open-source RTS, Warzone 2100 and Dune. It takes place in the year 2100 when two corporations (BIOSPHERE and APEX) go at it deploying powerful mechs and heavy hardware from the mothership in a classic RTS environment in the hunt for resources. It uses fluid touch controls that are aimed for simplicity and ease of use. Classic old-school resource collection mechanics are favored as well as simple clear graphics. There are a number of customized mechs you can build as well as various structures. There are also a handful of upgrades that you can utilize which can mean the difference between victory and defeat against a clever and challenging AI. Finally there are a large number of maps (zones) to choose from for Custom Games or you can go with a Ranked Game where the computer matches you to your skill level depending on your rank and how many promotion points you have earned to keep you challenged.
=== How To Play ===
Gameplay primarily consists of building individual units and structures on build pads. You build a refinery to harvest minerals and convert them to money. You then use the money to build a broad assortment of unit components, upgrades and an assortment of structures such as an Armory to unlock multiple component upgrades (also costing money) and a turret for example. Once you create your army, you can converge on the map to take control of Beacons where you can deploy more units. Capturing and keeping Beacons is vital in making your way across the map. Engage and eliminate all opponent units and structures to be declared the victor.

Ratings and Reviews
Excellent Game! Well done!
I was pining for my old days playing Starcraft, so I searched in the App Store for it. This game saved me from total disappointment. There is no mobile Starcraft, which is too bad, but this game is a great mobile alternative. The concepts are exactly the same, futuristic units, base development, resource management, and of course total domination of the map. The game cost $0.99, and has zero ads, and zero in-app purchases. You don't reach a point where you either have to wait, face insurmountable odds, or spend money to continue enjoying the game. There is great variety in the maps, and custom game setup. The graphics are good, not too sophisticated, and the controls are super simple. I have experienced no glitches or bugs so far. Strong work GameDevTeam. This app stands out in a sea of commercializations and ads. I'd gladly pay $0.99 for a game like this any day over all the free ones out there.
Pretty fun, worth more than I payed
Bought the pack with all 3 MechCom games. Really enjoying the first one so far. Pretty simple controls, if a little touchy sometimes (pardon the pun). I would suggest trying out this one if you like strategy games on pc and haven’t found one for mobile gaming yet. I’m playing this on my 9.7” screen iPad and it’s working great. Don’t think I’d play this on my phone with its smaller screen.
Finally found a game that isn’t pay to play.
99c and you get a great add free game.
Gameplay has been good, mechanics are good, graphics are fine.
Overall this is the best game I have found in a long time.
