For anyone who's wondering what the gameplay is like, you esentially fly a giant mech, which can turn into a giant tank, or into a giant space ship.



You fight on different islands, and you have an AI controlled army, which goes to fight against another AI controlled army.


Now the cool thing about this, is that everything is super sized, the buildings, the enemies, so you pretty much have an all out war, against tons of enemies at the same time. This is not an RTS game, but it does feel very strategy like. There are ground troops which you can fight, entire squadrons of jets and tanks, plus entire enemy bases which you get to blow up.




This game looks really nice for what it is, way nicer than it should be, for being a throwaway PlayStation 2 game.



Oh and this game runs on about anything, considering the massive scale of this game, it's insane that my old PC, and my awful laptop, can even run this at 60 FPS, with no problems at all. You really cannot get a sense of the scale, without playing the game by yourself.




I think this is a very obscure game that's totally worth checking out. I never got too far, but I still had a pretty good time with the early missions.

Personally I love the concept, and I'd love to see more games like this one. It's very simple as a game, but it works really well.


This game is basically impossible to find, so if anyone wants my copy I could upload it somewhere temporarily. Nobody is going to care at this point.



Edit: I managed to find the custom resolution tweak, I uploaded it on my website, I have no idea how it was made, so I sadly cannot write some instructions, on how to make your own. It was really hard to find otherwise, for some reason it completely vanished.


This is pretty much salvaged at this point, so I'm gonna hold onto this.

(just replace the executable file in the game folder --be sure to make a backup first)

(also, it might require Admin rights to start properly)


THANK YOU Ross!! From the bottom of my heart!

I have been searching for this game for 15 years, and for the life of me, couldn't remember the name.
