MechWarrior: Tactical Command
The strategic mobile game of explosive robot action
Play. Dominate. Conquer.
The Mobile Game Challenge Summarized
Mobile technology is taking our lives by storm. The average time spent by people on their phones for non-voice content has increased almost five times in the past few years. One of the main reasons behind this success is that mobile games are portable and provide one of the best forms of entertainment anywhere and at any time.
The rapid growth of this industry has led to a whole host of companies offering apps in the mobile games space.
Yet meeting the standards of today’s ever-changing gaming world and keeping users engaged has proven to be a real challenge for most companies in the field.
Behind the Game
The vision behind MechWarrior: Tactical Command was to create a real-time strategy game that was adaptable to all iOS devices. The goal was to create a game that would let users customize four battlemechs as they played through 21 missions across 3 planets taken straight from the lore of the Battletech universe.
The company wanted the game to be set during the chaotic events of the 3050 Clan Invasion. An important part of the vision was that gamers got to command the MechWarriors of Winfield’s Regiment as they struggled to defend the Federated Commonwealth from the onslaught of Clan Jade Falcon. So they approach Scopic to make their vision a reality.
The Scopic Solution
MechWarrior: Tactical Command is a real-time strategy game. Scopic designed the game so users can engage in battles in a 3D environment with a controllable camera. Players can rotate 360 degrees, zoom out to take in the big picture or zoom in to view the carnage up close.
Users command their lances with the touch screen, maneuver their ‘mechs to flank the enemy then unleash devastating targeted attacks all in one game!
