About Ironcast

About this game

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.

Features:

  • Turn based strategy combat set against a rich and interesting alternate 1880's history.
  • Roguelite campaign mode where death is permanent but with persistent rewards from one game session to the next. Drive back the invading forces and press forth for victory!
  • Hand painted art style.
  • Inspired by the steampunk genre and Victorian science fiction.
  • Loot new technology and upgrade abilities from the wrecks of fallen enemies.
  • Customise your Ironcast with a range of unique weapons and defensive systems. Over 50 different unlockable items will ensure an almost limitless number of combinations.
  • Passive Augmentations allow players to modify their Ironcast's weapons and abilities.
  • For PC, Mac and Linux.

Thx, I hate it. The match 3 machanic is made more complex by having to think about what you want to match/ what you need. The ressources are very limited tho, i regularly ran out of what i needed and even once ended up in the situation that there was only one very sh*tty option of what i was able to connect. With only three moves each turn I was then very limited with what i was able to do with my remaining ressources. The fights are all very difficult, there is only the distinction between medium and hard, i didn't even try the hard ones as the medium ones already destroyed me. The upgrading system is sh*t, you have to spend the majority of your scrap on repairs and you have to wait way too long to get new blueprints. The permadeath sysstem doesn't make me want to try again, as neither the fights nor the enless walls of text game me anything to look forward to.
