The game is based on standard turn-based strategy combat but with environmental factors affecting gameplay. For example, at night the water freezes, and every turn an hour goes by.[4] The game features two campaigns one controlling the 'Winged Crusade' and one controlling the 'Landians'.

Soundtrack[edit]

The Mecho Wars soundtrack was composed by Sean Beeson, with additional music provided by Justin Wasack, Pontus Rufelt, AF THE NAYSAYER, Aidin Ashoori, and vocals by Genna Bain. The sound effects were created by Justin Wasack.

The WiiWare version features an exclusive song. [5]

Reception[edit]

Reviews for Mecho Wars have been generally positive. It received a score of 4 out of 5 from appvee.com.[7] Gamerlimit.com gave Mecho Wars an 8.5 out of 10 [8] Appversity said "where UniWar brought a bland, but solid entry to the TBS genre, Mecho Wars counters with a flashy and vibrant style. With this style and the innovative time twist, I can safely say that upon the release of online multiplayer, Mecho Wars will be a must-have".[9] Slide To Play gave the game a 4 out of 4.[10] Meanwhile, PSPminis.com gave it a 9/10 for the PlayStation Minis version saying "Mecho Wars is very polished and full of content."[11]
