Mechadroids Round 4 and Update 1.2.0

With Round 4 starting (Update 1.2.0) we release our largest Mechadroids update! Along with all the great new features we mentioned in the previous blog post we’ve made one or two tweaks and bug fixes.

Congratulations to ‘NeverLupus’ who has been duking it out from Round 1 to win a round, narrowly missing out each time. This time he has emerged victorious from the wreckage! Special mention to ‘WiredDroid2’ and ‘saq’ for being close behind.

So… what’s next? We’ll be working on a web version of the game for Facebook and Google+, along with more features for the Android version. It’s still early days but expect to hear more information about that in the coming weeks.

That said… enjoy Round 4!

Last I wrote about user interfaces I discussed the new Unity UI system and I wrote about our process of porting from Daikon Forge to it. That was a year and a half ago and a lot has changed since then. To keep things interesting we decided to move from Unity UI (yet another move?!) to Coherent UI and I’ll explain why we did it.
