Hmm, could have been a cool game if it was produced outside of this one week competition. The graphics are not bad, but on my system there is an error where the upper part of the mech gets black. The music and sound are good, but the gameplay is (nearly) nonexistent. You get no powerups so it's pretty useless. They should have made a 'upgraded' version after the competition.

Definitely a Walker remake

MechWalker ist im Zuge des ersten #gamedev.ger Clone Contest im Zeitraum von einer Woche entstanden.
Ziel war es, einen bekannten C64 oder Amiga Klassiker am PC umzusetzen.

graphics are pretty good for 640x480... if this would be the year 1998
black graphic bug confirmed, looks like one of the "walking" frames lacks transparency
the gameplay would be cool, i like the way the gun speedsup, but the rest...

i'd want an upgraded version, mech size decreased 10 times, humans&machines size decreased 5 times...

... and everything flashed

It's obviously a remake, but due to the time limit it's not really fun to play
