In a gritty, barren future, mercenaries sell themselves out to the corporate overlords of the wasteland’s overcrowded cities for glory and the almighty dollar. In TinyMob Games’ MERC, it was time for me to get in on that action.
Boiled down to the broadest of terms, MERC. feels like a hybridization of the top down, squad based shooter tactics of games like the XCOM series with the frenetic, real-time combat and procedurally generated maps of the Diablo games. It’s an interesting combination of mechanics, and I was curious to see how it all came together.
