Additional Information

The year is 3050. Wars are fought with seven-story BattleMechs armed with the deadliest weapons known in the galaxy. These sixty-ton hunks of metal are piloted by MechWarriors, the only ones brave (foolish?) enough to fight the ruthless armies of the Inner Sphere in the name of their Clans.

Now it is time for a new MechWarrior to suit up and pilot the latest technology the Clans can offer: the "Madcat" Heavy OmniMech. Any volunteers? In Battletech: A Game of Armored Combat, you'll take control of the Madcat as you travel to five different planets to destroy the Inner Sphere's ground defenses.

Nine futuristic weapons are available to outfit your 'Mech, including: a Gauss Rifle, Arrow VI Missiles, Particle Projection Cannon, Machine Gun, Auto Gun, Large Laser, "Inferno" Short-Range Missiles, "Maelstrom" Long-range Missiles, and "Thunder" Time-delay Mines. You are free to choose any three of these weapons to complete your mission objectives, which involve taking out various structures on the ground. As you pilot your 'Mech across the battlefield, you'll have to watch for mines, enemy 'Mechs and defense systems.

Having some trouble moving and firing at the same time? Grab a friend and play the two-player Cooperative Mode, allowing one player to guide the 'Mech while the other targets enemies with its weapons. After completing each world, you'll receive a password to resume your destruction at a later time.
