Description

T-Mek is essentially an updated Battlezone. You are a warrior battling in the T-Mek competition, a hugely popular event in the future. You control a hovercraft and try to blow up everyone else.

The action is viewed from your perspective as you travel around the arena. You also have an overall view of where your opponents are. Terrain surfaces and characteristics vary in each battle. In most levels you need to reach a certain score to progress, however there are out-and-out one-off Deathmatch duels to deal with periodically.

Mad Max meets Battlezone SEGA 32X gametrader (229)
It was a game best enjoyed on its Arcade game platform. When playing this game - Masochism is to Sega 32/DOS, what Ecstasy is to the Arcade version. DOS David Portera (2)

Trivia

T-Mek was received so badly that one particular critic wrote the following review: (Was from http://www.gamesdomain.com/gdr.cgi?zones/reviews/pc/mar97/tmek.html - no longer up)



The problem is, that T-MEK has no redeeming features whatsoever. None. You may think I'm exaggerating, but I'm not. I haven't seen such a poorly executed game since, well, since the last one. In fact, I'm not going to write anything else about the game. It's that bad. Don't buy it. That is all. Go on. Go home.
