In the MechWarrior
games the player is a MechWarrior, a pilot of a Mech (a humanoid battle machine with the weight up to 100 tons). The player is responsible for equipping his Mech with weapons, armor and equipment before entering the battlefield. On the battlefield, the player fights tanks, aeroplanes and other Mechs. Most of the usable weapons produce heat, which will be reduced by time. If a Mech has too much heat, the Mech will be shut down (or explodes, if the heat reaches a too high value).
In the later games of this game group, the player has to "organise" (steal, capture or buy) the materials he wishes to use in combat. Allies and battlefield repairs are available in the later games, too.
This series of games is based on the pen & paper game MechWarrior
, a part of FASA
's Battletech universe. Instead of piloting Mechs like the basic BattleTech board game, players created specific characters like spies, pilots, commandos, etc. and developed them on a collection of adventures in classic D&D fashion.
