Inspired by Victorian era science fiction writers such as H.G. Wells and Jules Verne, Ironcast is set in an exciting alternative history; a time when refined men and women in top hats and bonnets commanded gigantic walking war machines, laying waste to the enemies of the British Empire! Take control of a 7 meter tall walking vehicle called an Ironcast and face off against an invading force of enemy Ironcast in order to defend 1880's Victorian England. Battles are fought by generating resource nodes which in turn drive the Ironcast's various weapons and systems. You must choose how to spend these nodes wisely, either offensively in order to cripple and destroy your opponents, or defensively, if they suspect a barrage of incoming weapons fire is due.

Review from Steam

Thumbs up! There are some flaws, but it’s worth taking a look at. I liked the steampunk setting. Ironcasts are giant robot mechs and the game is mostly mech-to-mech fighting. Gameplay is a combination of match-3 puzzles and turn-based combat. For example, if you collect enough ammo in the match-3 puzzle, then you’ll be able to fire your weapons. If you collect enough energy, then you’ll be able to raise your shields. As you advance through the battles in the campaign, you’ll be able to get better weapons and equipment. Eventually you’ll be strong enough to face the final boss.
The main flaw with this game is that it takes a lot of grinding. You can win some battles, but It’s practically impossible to win the whole campaign right away. However, you gradually gain global experience as you keep repeating the same battles over and over again. When your global level goes up, you have a better shot at winning the campaign. I was able to defeat the final boss when I reached level 36. Then I did some more grinding to reach level 40 in order to get the last achievement. Fortunately, you can skip the dialogue if you don’t want to see it over and over again.
There are two DLC packs available. Each gives an additional mech and commander for you to pick from. You don’t need the DLC packs to win the game or to get all the achievements, but they help add a little variety to the campaigns. This is important, because you’ll be fighting the same battles over and over again.
