Steampunk Puzzler Ironcast Coming to PS4
Developer Dreadbit has announced that their first console game Ironcast, will be coming to PS4 later this year. Ironcast is a steampunk mech combat, puzzle game set in an alternate history Victorian Era.
The game is inspired by the writings of H.G. Wells and Jules Verne. Players will take control of a walking vehicle called an Ironcast to defend an invading force of enemy Ironcasts. Combat includes generating resource nodes which drives the Ironcast’s various weapons and systems. Choosing how to spend these nodes is important, as some situations may have you attacking or defending your Ironcast from the enemy.
Nodes are acquired by linking three or more of the same color on the grid. Every color represents a different resource. For example, orange will power your Ironcast’s shields, and purple will fire your weapons. Only 3 matches can be made from the grid per turn, so choose the systems you want to activate wisely. Scrap metal can also be collected to upgrade the weapon and defensive systems of the Ironcast.
The Roguelite campaign features character leveling, multiple mech systems, weapon upgrades, and random loot and missions. Players will choose a Commander character and an Ironcast mech, both coming with unique skills. Missions are offered from a random selection of 75 unique scenarios.
