I got a chance to sit down today with a new and upcoming game AirMech; a “New” and upcoming Action RTS game made by Carbon Games. Now, the game is available in the form of ALPHA PREVIEW at the time of writing this article. It will be moving into BETA Preview in a few days or so we believe. Now that I have spent a few hours playing it and had my kids sit down and do some coop with me, I wanted to share a bit of my thoughts on this game.

Right when you get into the game, it slaps you right in the tutorial (which is skip-able if you choose, but not recommended if this is your first time play) and the game teaches you how to use to the controls, game-play mechanics, etc. Once you make it past the tutorial, you get to do some slap-age against an (easy) computer controlled AI to test out what you learned from the tutorial. Once you make your way through that match, you start to learn about the XP and money system that are nicely intergraded into the games menus. How to gain some unlocks to buy new defense units, etc. you need to do certain tasks like unlock missions inside the game to redeem your reward. Save up enough, score some new units. One thing I liked a lot was that you could setup 3 PVP builds and 3 PVE builds from the main menu so you could quickly jump in and out when you were doing multiplayer. Now. I got two of my kiddies in the house playing the game at the same time doing some coop survival. We all had a blast and as I am writing this preview article, they are still up there playing.
This is the first Action RTS that I‘ve played in along time, along with my kids at the helm. Check our the video above which features about 15 minutes of gameplay between the computer (easy) vs. myself. If you like Command and Conquer or any other RTS / Tower Defense game out there… I recommend that you quickly go and download this title and play today.
