Mechadroids Update 0.5.0

We have a big update for you today! Mechadroids 0.5.0 has just been released!

We’re very proud to show off all the new artwork. The game has been brought to life with the style shining through. This is the last major release before we launch Mechadroids onto Google Play. Starting today we enter a month of rapid balance testing and so we need your support now more than ever.

For the next three to four weeks we’ll be running Mechadroids for week long rounds and then changing the balance to see how well the game plays out. During this time we’ll also fix any obvious bugs, show stoppers and quick wins.

We’re almost at the major milestone so wish us luck and we hope you enjoy the release!
