Oh hey, Big Zam!

Arcane Wonders have announced Critical Mass, a simultaneous mech-on-mech combat game.

This game is a 2 Player, PvP Mech combat game. It plays in about 30 minutes and is recommended for ages 14+.

The game is set in the aftermath of a catastrophic war which has destroyed the planet. The only thing that could live after that were giant, powerful mechs. As one of the survivors, you will face down the young upstarts trying to take your place.

Players will simultaneously battle each other in their mechs. You can customise your mech with new armour and weapons, whenever you want in this fast-pace game of mech-on-mech action.

Each mech has combat cards and a 'Mech board', which acts as a control station. The control station indicates the four Critical Components, which, if destroyed, cause your Mech to break down, losing you the game.

The action is simultaneous with turns broken into three steps: plan, reveal and combat. The plan step involves placing a combat card face down, the reveal step has the players show their combat cards at the same time, and the combat step will see your Mechs fight in order of their speed stats.

Combat cards include weapons, defense cards to block or evade weapons, special actions, equipment cards to enhance your mech. Whoever has the lower speed goes second so it becomes a tactical rock paper scissors.

This game will be out in stores and online in July 2018. For more information visit the Arcane Wonders website.
