Mech Arena: Robot Showdown, a multi shooter from Plarium
Released this week on Android and iOS, Mech Arena: Robot Showdown what to surprise. Indeed, this multiplayer mobile shooter is produced by the famous studio Plarium Games behind the title Raid: Shadow Legends. We come back together on the specifics of this new shooters game with MECHAs.
Rich content for Mech Arena: Robot Showdown
On the menu of Mech Arena, Plarium offers an Overwatch-style interface, content already present and customizable mechas to punchy casual shooter gameplay. Here is the trailer for Mech Arena.
If you like mechas, shooting and multiplayer in 5v5, this game already offers a very rich content despite its recent release and I can only advise you to give it a chance. In figures, Mech Arena gives:
- 39 weapons, from missile to stasis rifle.
- 15 mechs each with their own special abilities to provoke a hell of a carnage.
- 2 weapon slots per mecha to vary shots and strategies.
- 22 maps launch, which is rather huge, with a reduced surface to increase the presence of group clashes during games.
This variety of launch content is reassuring for those who are thinking about investing in a new multi shooter on mobile. Especially since these arena cards will be your only playing field. Most multiplayer games a bit repetitive become even more annoying when you always come across the same 4 cards and only the players change.
Competition and fast paced gameplay
Mech Arena Above all, wishes to position itself as a competitive game that stands out from the BR games and other served and cooled formulas of recent years. The developers’ proposal looks good. However, only the future can tell if they have kept their promises.
According to them, the game offers a balanced clash sorting based on player performance rather than his stuff. This idea is anchored in the heart of his matchmaking system. In this case, a skilled F2P player could largely take it upon himself to take down a less good pay-to-win player. At least on paper.
In Mech Arena, the battles are short but packed with tactics with restricted maps to avoid wasted time frolicking around doing nothing. The promise of the game is to take you from the launch menu to the start of the game, including all menus and matchmaking, in a record time of 30 seconds. In this way, the mobile medium could offer a quick experience and different from a classic multi shooter.
Personally, although I tried to immerse myself in titles like War Robots, I did not enjoy it very much. Maybe I spent too little time on it. But the controls seemed soft to me, the interface rather ugly and the interest of the combat rather bland. On closer inspection, Mech Arena: Robot Showdown just might be the key to my heart of steel. History to finally enjoy a littleclash between robots on mobile, with gameplay worthy of the name. In any case, I hope that the new Plarium game will be able to align with the quality and quantity of weapons and customization options that a collection system like War Robots can afford.
In conclusion, notice to fans of customization of mechas (dear owners of Mothergunship, I see you) and rhythmic action who do not fear the frustration of a team of broken arms (robots). You have a new game to try.
