    Here is an overview of the game:

    Hardcore Mecha is a 2D platformer where players choose their mecha as they embark on a thrilling action-packed adventure filled with shooting, flying and exquisite animations—imagine a mix of Metal Slug and Super Robot Wars! The game features three major game modes: Campaign, Multiplayer, and Survival mode.

    In Campaign Mode you take control of Tarethur, a mercenary charged with the task of finding a missing intelligence officer on Mars. Players will be engrossed in a story of conspiracy and insurgency consisting of eight chapters and 18 stages ranging from deep underwater, out in space or confined in urban environments, all gorgeously realized with seamless animated cutscenes. In several stages, Human pilots can also exit their mechas, thus expanding the ability to explore the environment and engage in further platform-based combat.

    The Multiplayer mode allows players to select from a multitude of customizable mechas to showcase amazing freestyle combo moves and experience the fast-paced hardcore competitive player-versus-player battles. Hardcore Mecha supports online Multiplayer and local split-screen for up to four players. For players that are looking for further challenges beyond the 10-hour single-player campaign, there is a Survival mode, “Simulation Battle.” Here players can choose from the 40 mechas that appear in-game, as they fight to survive against waves of deadly enemies.
