AirMech Strike is an action-RTS multiplayer online game with MOBA elements developed by Carbon Games. The main game is free-to-play, but AirMech Wastelands spin-off is a paid game.

  • A unique combination of three genres of games
  • Support for a large number of platforms
  • Fast and dynamic combats in the air and on land
  • Dozens of different mechs and customizable parts of them

AirMech Strike Gameplay

In AirMech Strike players will control a transforming robot, which designed to fight with the enemy army and AirMechs. All AirMechs has two modes of movement: ground and air, and can only attack those enemies that match their current form. Another important ability is the transfer of units.

All players can build units that help in capturing enemy targets and killing opponents. They can purchase units for credits — gradually accumulated and earned currency. All available units are numbered from the cheapest and weakest, useful in the early game, to the most expensive and valuable in battle, good for late pressure. The player can create units at the base or captured objects, and move directly to the battlefield or leave to defend the structure.

During the game, AirMechs gain experience points for each kill, increasing their level. Each new level improves the characteristics of the player’s robot and gives him skill points that the player can spend on learning new abilities or improving already learned ones. Each AirMech has four skills, each of which acquires to the fourth level (while the 4th level costs two skill points).

To customize the style of play in the game, players can use a hangar where they can choose a pilot and a machine that he will control. The bonuses that the player will receive depend on the choice of the pilot.

There are nine types of AirMechs in total, for each of which different skins are available.

As in classic MOBA-games, there are two bases on the game map — allied and enemy. To win the battle, the player needs to destroy the opponent’s base. Between the fortresses are various structures that can go to one side of the fight. Capturing buildings, you can get additional credits. Accumulating them, players can hire various robotic equipment, which will act in the form of creeps.
