Your Mission

You can choose from two different game modes: Domination Campaign (capture and defend strategic points) and Base Defense (Tower-defense style).

Captured reactors and generators will grant Energy points, used to teleport turrets, call air support into the battle field and repair your robot, enabling a temporary protection for a base or offensive weapons to decimate the enemy’s stronghold.

Domination Campaign

  • Capture the Reactors by reaching proximity and grant energy generation for your units;
  • Secure the Reactor’s perimeter with multiple turrets types, landmines, barricades and attack drones;
  • Suppress the enemy’s presence in the area with powerful carpet bombings and Neutrium missiles;
  • Capture factories to produce ammo and fuel for your Mech;
  • Upgrade Power Generators to increase the energy generation capacity;
  • Make your way into the enemy’s territory in a destructible environment full of surprises.

Base Defense
