A downloadable game for Windows

The once peaceful surface of Mars has decayed into a violent battleground between arms corporations and Earthly governments.
To join the fight would be crazy. To survive would be downright psychotic.

-------------------------------------------------------------------

Landsword is a top-down mecha shooter with a heavy emphasis on destruction and gameplay that combines elements from both classic shoot em' ups and contemporary action-stealth games.

Featuring fully destructible environments, players must use their wits and surroundings to outsmart and defeat enemies in combat, while still retaining an arcade feeling to its gameplay.


Currently there are two missions available in this prototype, featuring both urban mech vs mech combat and mass extermination of hordes of vicious mutated lobsters.




You are part of an elite maneuver-squadron of Martian legionnaires entrusted with the critical mission of stabilizing and reclaiming the war-torn territories within the Solis region. Together, with your team of mechanics, planners, and interplanetary assistants, you will spearhead an effort to counter the mercenary and rebel groups threatening the Martian colonies, as well as uncover who is behind all of the sudden unrest.

[ Landsword is a working title, final name subject to change. ]

Update v.0.2 - 5/3/2024 - Enemy mechs are way less aggressive when there's more than three, added indicator once they're hit so they're more readable as well.

Update v.0.4 - 5/5/2024  Added v-sync and alternate synchronization method to settings as well as windowed view on native. Fixed toggle buttons writing gibberish as well.

Great sound effects and UI! Took me straight back to 80s anime.

Glad you like it and noticed the 80s anime inspiration! The ricochet sounds are straight from Patlabor and Gundam.

Glad to hear people with older hardware can run this. I'm working hard on trying to get resolution resizing working, something is messing it up. I apologize you and other people had to play it in such a small resolution.
