Description: Mech Skeleton features a unique, high immersion locomotion system. As a Mech Skeleton Pilot, you decide the most effective tactic for each combat situation. Attack the enemy head-on, or be stealth waiting for the perfect opportunity to strike!! The Mech Skeleton program was born out of desperate times. In the beginning, millions of lives were lost, allied soldiers were simply slaughtered by the seemly unstoppable PNA Death Droids. It was a stroke of luck, or pure chance while operating in total darkness that we were able to build a weapon capable of pushing the PNA filth back into the dirt. Using intel gained from a captured PNA scientist, the first Mech Skeleton was activated. Our soldiers finally had the superhuman abilities needed to rise up against the enemy. Initially, the program was considered a great success, with the PNA crippled Mech Skeleton pilots were feared on the battlefield. Until recently, when things changed. Allied forces have been trying to pass off the recent strange behaviour as a small glitch in the system, nothing to worry about. However, this is no glitch. The Mech Skeleton program and the technology driving must not be trusted.
Review: I kind of like that this game is called ‘Mech Skeleton’ because it suits the game well. Not only is it a Mech robot shooter game, but it is also bare-bones when it comes to content! The good news is that this isn’t that terrible at all, in fact I did have some fun playing it. I don’t think it’s worth £2.79, but grab it for a quid and you might enjoy it. All it is really is a walking Mech robot and some shooting, but very little else. Don’t expect to be exploring here or bathing in amazing visuals. But do expect a little bit of fun for a little price.
