Let us start the game
When the game starts, the player needs to make the selection of a vehicle and load with weapons. The game features 9 landscapes and the player can be placed in any one of the landscapes randomly. All the landscapes can be cleared by accomplishing one of the 3 goals of the landscape. The objectives include the elimination of the enemies, taking out the captains of enemies and destroying the platforms of defense of the enemies. The game cannot be saved and thus, the player needs to accomplish his goal in a single sitting. On the other hand, the features, which have been unlocked by the player, can be carried from one playthrough to the other. Moreover, the placements of enemies are randomized amidst the matches.
The two phases of Mech Brigade
The gameplay of Mech Brigade features 2 phases- the order phase and the combat phase. In the order phase, the player commands or orders the individual units. Whereas, in the control phase, the entire unit carries out the order given by the player. The units are vehicles loaded with weapons and might also consist of artillery, vehicles, and infantry. The game ends automatically in 15 turns. However, the game can be continued if all the sides of the game agree to do so. At the end of the game, the victory points decide the status of the game.
