513027When we took a look at the first Heavy Mach, we thought it was a fun side-scrolling shooter with room for improvement. Nearly a year later, developer IndieAn has released Heavy Mach 2 [App Store], a greatly enhanced sequel that abandons side-scrolling for a top down perspective among other changes and enhancements.

Gameplay in Heavy Mach 2 consists of taking various missions that seem to either have you killing things or collecting things, going out in to the battlefield to fight with your tank and returning with your spoils. As you earn credits and experience by defeating other tanks and completing missions, you can eventually buy tons of weaponry and different upgrades to your tank as you level up.

My favorite part of this game is how well the controls work. While the developers could have easily just used a typical virtual dual-stick control scheme, instead everything is done using different taps and drawing gestures on screen. To move your tank you can either tap on the battlefield, or you can draw a line with your finger for the tank to follow. Your tank will try to follow the exact course you plotted, so it will often get stuck if you try to make it cut corners or drive places it can't. This is easily solved by just tapping or drawing on the screen to move somewhere else.

Attacking enemies is as simple as tapping on them, and letting your weapons do the rest. Tapping on screen twice causes your tank to dash in that direction. There are buttons framing the screen to use special abilities (such as calling in air strikes) and changing weapons once you get more than the starting load out. The interface as well as the different tanks themselves and the terrain are extremely detailed, and the animations are great-- Much like the original.

The only thing that really seems to be missing in Heavy Mach 2 is any kind of plot to follow. The highly detailed scenery does a great job of setting the futuristic war-torn the mood of the game, and I just can't help but wonder why you're just randomly taking missions to destroy things. Maybe that's just me.

Heavy Mach 2 combines the RPG elements of an experience and leveling system along with seemingly endless equipment upgrade and customization options. The controls work well, and I've had a great time rampaging through the countryside blowing up every tank I come across. While the original Heavy Mach was a great sidescroller, the sequel has translated well to the overhead view along with improving nearly everything from the first game. If you're a fan of tank combat, you really should give Heavy Mach 2 a shot.

    Thank god the removed the dot (.) in the app name! Silly I know, but it annoyed the hell out of me.

    And a question to TA: Why do you always "defend" the game, as in your take on

    "Your tank will try to follow the exact course you plotted, so it will often get stuck if you try to make it cut corners or drive places it can't."

    was

    "This is easily solved by just tapping or drawing on the screen to move somewhere else."

    It would be more appropriate to solve this bug by some simple path finding algorithm (A* for instance) instead of making the player correct it, don't you agree?

      He's just stating a fact, not defending the game. You control the Mecha directly; you are not giving a set of instructions to an AI. The mini bots that you purchase are AI controlled, however, and I have yet to see one get stuck while trying to follow me.

      • Bobster

        I wouldn't call drawing a line controlling him directly. But yeah, I understand what you mean.

    • http://www.mrjackgames.co.uk/blog Mr Jack

      Seems to me if you want to use path finding you tap where you want it to go; the point of having a movement mode where it follows the path of your finger is that it... follows the path of your finger. "Fixing" the problem that it can get stuck doing that would break the function that it follows the path of the finger. I don't think the decision they made is one that needs fixing, I think it's a sensible design.

      Although I haven't played the game so it might be annoying.

    • araczynski

      A* is one thing, but at the same time, i hate it sometimes when games DO try to interpret what i'm doing.

      Sometimes if i tell something to go into a wall, i expect it to stop when it gets there, not figure out a way to go around it and come out on the other side crossing the path of who knows what. if i wanted it to go around, i should've told it to go around.

      sometimes you have to PLAY the game rather than just THINK it. :)

    • Comangels

      The "update" is terrible! I'm sorry IndieApps is gone, and I hope the original developer is alive (he resides in Japan). But this new one is terrible! The tanks seem to acquire a long line that covers the "health" bar, and the line extends from the tanks themselves to the right edge of my iPod. Then they die quickly as I cannot see the health bar.

    @thebleeptruth: Simple, multiplayer is not a simple task to implement. :)

    This game is VERY enticing. Love the described control methods as they match perfectly with mech-style gameplay. Love these types of upgrade games. Hopefully there is some strategy in the upgrade path. I've been a sucker for that since Target Earth on the Genesis. (Such a hard game to like, at first.)

    Thankyou for leading me into another impusle buy, Toucharcade. :P But Im glad I did, despite an absolute lack of story, its perfect for that fix of "pick up a mission and go kill stuff". The controls are fine, and like msot these arpgs there is the impulse to jsut do another mission and jsut kill some tanks more for the next upgrade.

    There doesnt seem to be much strategy in upgrades so far though, I mean, basically more money buys you bigger and beter guns - sure you can chose between rail guns and rocket launchers and miniguns, but at the end the difference is minimal. Still, its good fun, well worth the purchase for its current price, imo.

  • spiffyone

    Wow.

    I expected a backlash against this game due to both the change in style from the original and the control scheme. Toucharcade members nowadays seem against change and thinking outside the box (I remember the earlier days, when members actually thought of possibilities), always screaming about wanting dual wheel control or virtual joysticks. Good to see acceptance for this one.

    The devs have proved two things:

    1. They've got MASSIVE coconuts enacting such changes.
    2. If the end result is great, then complaints against change will be kept to a minimum or be non-existent.

  • Harv

    i really like this game. the art is awesome, especially the backgrounds.

    i'd love to see a pinch to zoom in/out function - even if that meant getting chunky pixels when in close. also a pan around the field function. at the moment it just feels a little claustrophobic to me. the zoom and pan would bring it fully up to speed with the high tech spirit of the games theme.

    one criticism is that it's all quite slow. i am hoping that with future upgrades the mech will pick up pace a bit, and maybe some speedier enemies to keep up.

  • Mr.Peanut

    This or more like an engine demo than a game. Don't get me wrong. It is a good engine. The control scheme is excellently fine tuned, but the "missions" are barely that. Those who prefer objectives other than "kill 5 tanks" will be disappointed. I don't want to wander aimlessly around a map killing things. I don't care about story but please give me real missions with a modicum of event based scripting and real objectives. My one other main complaint is that the landscape has no effect on the game. Sure there holes and ponds that you must move around but it would be more interesting if surfaces had some effect on movement. Buildings are an obstacle to your mech but none of them provide cover. This makes the maps I have played feel more or less like open arenas. Maybe later maps offer more but somehow I doubt it.

    And for the love of god please give us an option to turn off the repetitive music.

    • asosself

      agreed. I just made some changes in the app folder... its much better with some metal gear acid musics, for example... I'm not sure to keep them if an update comes later however.

    I love the game. Very cool and the developer/programers did a very good job for such a small device. Well worth the minimal amount I paid for the app.

    I agree with what I've read about the name. It should be Heavy Mech not Mach.

    Last comment that hopefully someone can help me with -- I absolutely cannot solve the mission I am on -- "Making ML-901 - Fuel Cell." It says to "Gather 2 fuel cells known as powerful-energy-system."

    I have looked everywhere and have destroyed everything. I cannot find it. Did I have it earlier on and sell them by mistake? Please, please help me!!!!

    FYI I have killed so many level 16 turrets and have not seen a Fuel Cell yet (as I have read on some posting looking for the fuel cell). The only thing close in name that the level 16 drops is energy cells. I don't need energy cells, just the 2 fuel cells!

    Thank you to anyone that can assist!

    • sigu

      just move to the next base (wasteland?) and fight more enemies and you will find tons of fuel cells.

      I'm on the next "Making ML-901" mission which need some camerax200, and I can't find it, and it seems I have finished what they have for now. can't wait for the update.

      • CC

        The Camera is in Skyway three at the lower right corner. You will need Item Bots to get it.

        The Fuel Cells are for that mission too. They are not the same as electric cells though. The Fuel cells are tough to find, some people have claimed that you can get them from Turret 16's and 19's, but i have yet too see them. Still waiting on an update for that :(

    Hi, this game beats all 4/5 stars indieapps you loose 1 point due to many complaints in finding the 2 fuel cells and the turbine please sort this out and I also want to know when next update comes out . The ml-901 mission is takin a piss as you can't find turbine and fuel cells please sort this out indie :(:( overall the games is superbly amazing as it's origional and also put prices down a touch (15-30)% because it's impossible to get the £££-2million armor takes to long I'm only at 879k plz email me indieapps

      I have 2 turbines but couldn't tell you where I got the. I know they were from level 20+ enemies I believe on the Wasteland maps. These are the other items that I am holding on to that I will not see as I have a feeling I will need them later on and I don't see them very often!

      Engine 2000 hp
      two Engine 1000 hps
      about 4 types of radars (some that are worth quite a bit)

      I'm thinking I probably had fule cells at one point and sold them not knowing that I needed them and not knowing that I would not see them again! Good luck to you!

      • hourglass

        Its from a boss. not sure which, but the turbines r from a boss in wasteland.

    • the_spire

      I have the same problem. I will not spned any more time searching these stupid cells.

    Please, what's "SP." and "ARMOR" slot ? Please !

    Thanks

    • shadow

      those i think you can get in the full version, cause I was able to see items for the armor slot once i bought the full version. sp , i haven't look into that one yet.

      • Ransom

        I do have the full version and I am able to fill the armor slot but the SP. slot still has yet to show a function.

    silly question but can anyone tell mean what the stats number on a weapon mean?

    for example: MG-16d machine -gun
    stats are : atk 21 (L:+0 R:-32) this i understand
    now this part is where i'm a bit lost 8 / 10/ 0.14s /2.5s
    don't know what 8 stand for but i'm thinking the 10 is like 10 shots, 0.14s per seconds? 2.5 is the range..? am i close on any of these numbers..?

    • peter

      the numbers means:
      damage of each shot/number of shots in magazine/cooldown time after each shot/reloading time of the magazine.

      so if you have stats:
      8 / 10 / 0.14s / 2.5s
      then the attack of the gun is calculated:
      8 * 10 / ( 10 * 0.14 + 2.5) = 80 / 3.9 = 20.51
      so the total attack of that weapon is 21 per second.

      my current weapon has attack 1066 and stats 130/50/0.1/1.1
      so 130*50/(50*0.1+1.1) = 6500/6.1 = 1065,57

    Thank you Shadow, but I have the full version (I have bough the game). And I can't drop zero item from SP or ARMOR slot. I'm level 35.

    > I can't airlift to seaside base.
    > No mission at seaside base.
    > I have drop one fuel cell on huge tank from seaside map. Just one ^^
    > I don't know what is the stats numbers on a weapon... Help for this game is incomplete :/

    The 1.3 maj is incomplete...

    • Dan

      I noticed on my iPod that I had an app update for Heavy Mach 2. After installing the update, that is when I noticed the armor.

      When in the Equipment Shop, under the parts category, there are armor items that you can buy. Then you can drop the armor into the armor slot while in the Maintenance Shop.

      I have not been able to figure out what to put in the SP slot.

    I the developer, will tell you that the fuel cells and turbine are found on the maps and all complaints and extras are being fitted shortly level +70 can get the turbo-43e legs and the Platinum-armor-16b for 10 million kelledos points each ( in game money) we are trying are best and we can't tell you where items are . Find them yourself. Beach missions added next update and maybe new areas but maybe be declined. New bots are getting added such as the healing bots and many more, also thank you for exploiting the glitch but it is a fault and will be fixed, we are developing an idea of not just being a walker but tanks,planes. Level capacity will be Maxed at 250 but may increase if new levels are placed. Helicopter enimies will be added in the 1.5 update not the 1.4. Being able to choose camo is pointless as it has no purpose of being there so will be declined, many other feautures will be added such as sound off/on low/high but we are struggling to integrate music from your library. The game price will be increased to £2.99 but also "AppStore add-ons" will be added in 1.5-1.8 as we are not working on this yet. Cheats are being declined so sorry folks.

    • Dan

      For starters, I really like Heavy Mach 2. I also appreciate the information that you are providing.

      My complaint: I understand your reasoning behind not sharing information about the location of the fuel cells, but you should also realize that you are losing dedication to the game from users as they are getting frustrated because they cannot move forward without solving that mission. It is getting real boring doing the exact same thing for days & hours. That being killing everything on every map and not getting any reward in return. A little bit of helpful information on solving this mission would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

    • Mavrix79

      There is a cheat in the game. If you would like to level up quicker. Go into a boss room, beat him, save game and go back in and the boss is there. Rinse Wash and repeat

      • philleebee

        beach 7 has boss 3 along with other tanks and turrets.... good spot.

    And open a little webpage with fully help and detailled help (what's the SP slot, what's the differents numbers of weapons, etc).

    I've got 1 full cell and 1 turbine. I really dont remember how i got it, but i think that was on the turrents 19 or 20. The Fuel Cell looks like a bullet with red head XD with sell price of 12000, and the turbine have the sell price of 27000. (sorry about my engRish), if i got a new fuel cell, will post again

    • _Enigma_

      Fuel cells are in all enemies to my knowledge from tanks 21-32 and from turrets 14-20. I'm afraid that fuel cells are incredibly rare in this game to the point where, I'll admit, it's kind of ridiculous. However, I have found 1 off of a Turret_16 and TWO fuel cells of of Tank_27 (found in Sea_Side_1). They're there, but apparently very rare. I got lucky, but it's not impossible. I do have to commend Indieapps for this great game (very addicting), but, as stated above (and I'm probably just being more annoying than helpful :D), a few things could be changed about this game.
      1. While it doesn't seem to be deemed necessary, a story line would greatly add to the game, giving the player a feeling that they're out doing something important and not just blowing crap up for fun. Hell, you could be the evil person for all we know. The tanks aren't attacking you, maybe they weren't looking to pick a fight. We just go off the assumption we're always right.
      2. The enemies are limited, but I heard you are currently working on that, so I'll skim over this.
      3. A few item drop rates are not just rare, but friggin' insane. Might want to change that.
      4. When our inventory is full, why does our pilot still try to pick it up like a tard, then lose it? There should be some sort of alert when your inventory is full, not "Oh, you want this item? Too bad. Your inventory is full. You lose what you just picked up, even if it's an irretrievable quest item, so now your screwed! Hahahaha!"
      5. More bots and skills would be nice, but not a priority...
      6. If possible, a cooperative mode would be nice. It seems like this game definitely has the potential of incorporating multiplayer. I know this is hard, so just a suggestion.
      Again, these are simply suggestions to help improve the game, but as a flash producer myself, I realize these add-ons to the game are difficult to create and program, so feel free to ignore this comment as well. Other than that, that's all I have to say.

    the ml-901 mission was tended to slow down process of gamers as we are being flushed with ideas etc. fuel cells and turbines are very VERRRRY rare as it was the last mission in the 1.3 update also the weapon has 2000 atk so with the constant finding them you level up for the next update missions
    i assure that fuel cells ave a rarity as 2-500 drops and even that is inaccurate.
    this game is a repetitive game and was designed to keep you hooked but i never knew that our game would be a great success and that it would outbeat our HM1 and the flight game combined . WE ARE WORKING TO OUR VERY BEST , forums on our site got deleted 2month ago because of flooding and inexperience to control them.
    with every one that is complaining bout the game being hard i suggest playing the game on a different slot all over again .
    starting the game over again up to the beach 901 ml weapon mission you will get a turbine and fuelcellse at level 50 but current saves will be found in rarity thank you and no more complaints we are very fustrated with comments (fuell cells are found in turrents )( turret number devide 1000 is the rarity so (turret 20 devide 1000 = 100 so 100 drops from that turret is the chance of getting it

    • The_spire

      yeah, you gave up! we won! fighting you down here at the forum! thanks for the hint, guys.

      i have gotten 2 turbines from a boss...i bevieve it was the one on trian tracks...

    I have trouble understanding you ... ! You created one of the best iphone games and many people spend time on it, who paid for it. But great game, great responsibilities, players have a lot of expectations on a game they like. The rate of drop is part of the game. For example, in diablo II, some objects are almost untraceable and it is part of the gameplay. But perhaps it would be nice to have a table droprate on your site, for example. Or in the game, in all bases (skyway base, etc), one or two characters with speech bubbles to explain some aspect of the game, who could say "we have already seen some turbines but they are rare ... it is said that located in a particular place ... etc. ...", complete a major problem of the game, i.e. its lack of history and storytelling. But it's a great game, I repeat.

    add narration, guide the players, it will help them better enjoy the game and make it more immersive. For example, add in the bases one bar/pub where there are characters who speak the background, missions etc.. Or at least add the benefit of information when we receive a mission. Add life to the game. For example, in Diablo II, there is small towns where people speak of the universe :)

    This is my fav iphone game by far. Just got my two fuel cells tonight and have to say they are out there, you just have to search hard for them. Keep up the good work developers. Those who spent more time playing the game instead of complaining got our award and are looking forward to 1.4 update.

    and thanks partick we will look it through.

    Time to get the story of the game out of the way , this game was intended to be a arcade game so we don't have a story basically ure a mech against swarming enemies who taking over areas n u kill them end of lol :D sorry if you thought the game wasn't arcade.

    • Patrickb

      It's not arcade. You have added many elements from RPG games, so it's an hybrid game. So a mini story is necessary. Robokill have a story for example, and this is a rpg-arcade game like heavy games.

      Two other things.
      1) how to unlock a target?
      2) we can't sell item when equiped. It's bad and VERY frustrating. When i want buy another armor, i want use the price of equiped armor for buy the new armor. It's a problem...

    Fuel cells are in all enemies to my knowledge from tanks 21-32 and from turrets 14-20. I'm afraid that fuel cells are incredibly rare in this game to the point where, I'll admit, it's kind of ridiculous. However, I have found 1 off of a Turret_16 and TWO fuel cells of of Tank_27 (found in Sea_Side_1). They're there, but apparently very rare. I got lucky, but it's not impossible. I do have to commend Indieapps for this great game (very addicting), but, as stated above (and I'm probably just being more annoying than helpful :D ), a few things could be changed about this game.
    1. While it doesn't seem to be deemed necessary, a story line would greatly add to the game, giving the player a feeling that they're out doing something important and not just blowing crap up for fun. Hell, you could be the evil person for all we know. The tanks aren't attacking you, maybe they weren't looking to pick a fight. We just go off the assumption we're always right.
    2. The enemies are limited, but I heard you are currently working on that, so I'll skim over this.
    3. A few item drop rates are not just rare, but friggin' insane. Might want to change that.
    4. When our inventory is full, why does our pilot still try to pick it up like a tard, then lose it? There should be some sort of alert when your inventory is full, not "Oh, you want this item? Too bad. Your inventory is full. You lose what you just picked up, even if it's an irretrievable quest item, so now your screwed! Hahahaha!"
    5. More bots and skills would be nice, but not a priority…
    6. If possible, a cooperative mode would be nice. It seems like this game definitely has the potential of incorporating multiplayer. I know this is hard, so just a suggestion.
    Again, these are simply suggestions to help improve the game, but as a flash producer myself, I realize these add-ons to the game are difficult to create and program, so feel free to ignore this comment as well. Other than that, that's all I have to say.

  • Tutet

    Agree with Dan, I'm at level 44 and trying to find the fuel cell for weeks. It's getting repetitive, leveling up is difficult now, killing same things over and over again still trying find the fuel cell. And knowing evenif I find it, probably have to repeat the same thing to find turbine kinda put me off already . Begining game was good n fun but now stop playing as just can't be do same thing every day finding the object where leveling up is also slow with no new enemieS. Starting all over is a nightmare. Since dev say it is a arcade not rpg story thing, then sld make it easier to complete.. Understand it's meant to slow gamers but I wld rather happily complete it n buy for next update or sequel, but even with next sequel out think twice buying as didn't even complete this... Bur other than this , was a good game

    Like I said we put the ml-901 mission in there to halt the process of the game because we are working on more missions and alot of other majorities. We don't know when we are going to release the update yet but we are preferably 73.54% of what the update is ( I used data tracker chechlist to get accurate results) there are still many errors and and enemy_37 keeps on killing us when it's damage is set to low die to a burst type . We need alot to work on but I ensure that 1.4 is not major than 1.5 is going to be. We were developing walker enemies but we had problems seperating the command from it to the commands of your mech . Fuel cells are preferably 3x as rare as turbines-2x as rare as 2000hp engine

    thank you

      The issue I have is one of return on investment. The time I invest in your game must have a return, a reward. As far as I can tell it does not anymore. 
      For example, I killed 200 level 20 turets. There were no fuel cells. I am sure it was possible, but that is simply not enough; my time is worth more than this arrangement offers. 
      When there is no return on investment, investers withdraw. I am doing just that. I will no long be playing the game. Neither will I buy anymore products from your company nor suggest anyone else does. 
      I tell you this for your own benefit. I am only one person, and probably do not matter to you. I understand that attitude as one cannot be concerned with everyone. But others, I am sure, feel similarly, and enough disgruntled individuals should matter to you, and will definitely hurt revenues.

    Another thing is the AppStore world and mission packs , snow world , a hint of new boss_6 = they have autoseeking rockets so you will need emp launcher,or alot of health repair kits. :)

  • Danexmurder

    I'd like to see minigun weapons added, especially if they would spin in the animation when they are firing. It would also be cool to have an auto-targetting weapon that could go in the .sp slot in your inventory. It could basically automatically fire at other enemies around you while you concentrating on one enemy. It would be good for taking out turrets or other smaller tanks while you are fighting larger enemies. You could also have a different variety that would be used for anti-missile defense. It would auto-target incomming missiles and blow them up before they hit you but it couldn't shoot other enemies. Laser weapons and mortars would be a fun additions as well.

    In tht case hope 1.4 update will allow players like me to complete tht 901 mission more easily n continue with the new missions addon in the update else the update basically only suitable for those willing to start over or have already done up 901 or willing to continue search the rare cell in order to proceed.. Still, the continued dev is a good thing. Bt hope we can see more depth perhaps on 1.5 rather just find n kill find n kill?

  • sigu

    finally got the two fuel cells. yeah!!! just keep on killing turrets in sea side area. I probably killed ~200 of them

    the ML-901 is a huge killer. everything become so easy after getting it.

  • Dan

    I am convinced that there is hope out there!!!!

    I just got my first fuel cell. Seaside 02 (aka: Beach 02). I only need 1 more! I would have to say that I think I have detroyed hundreds and hundreds of various tanks and turrents from every level. I wouldn't even call it rare that a fuel cell turns up. I would say more like near impossible. My only advice is to not give up hope. Just don't expect it to happen right away.

    Some other stats that I'm not sure if it is beneficial but will share as maybe there is some common factor with us that finally find the fuel cells:

    I am currently Level 44 and the mission percentage indicator is at 96%.

    1. to get fuel cell, focus on the turret 20, there are a lot of them in beach7 or 5. like Dan said, there is hope. but with the ML-901, things are too easy.

    2. I got several turbines way before I got any fuel cells. probably from the wasteland/yellow stone area.

    will check 1.4 later.

    Still looking for fuel cell #2. Man this is a lot of work!!! Turret 20 is hard one to easily kill I can do for a while, but it sure does create quite the workout. I think I like attacking tank 28 a little better. Much easier and much quicker to kill.

    I'm sure I know the answer to this already. Can anyone use a repair kit other than the small repair kit? I sure would like to use the 100% repair kit.

    lvl 36 - have 5 airlifts to ruinfield-seaside, currently only 2 missions in my log: Making ML901...needing the 2 fuel cells, and Making arm 2-3...need 1 more gun barrel B which i'm stuck on because I don't remember where they drop. I've killed tons of tanks in all zones and can't seem to find a gun barrel b. i've read all of the above posts about the fuel cells so i'm just gonna look for this darn gun barrel b for now. anybody know or remember what drops it?

    what drops gun barrel b?

      try early stages, like skyways.

      Just a guess, you'll get them from tanks and not from a turret.

    I got tonnes of Turbine from the Boss you kill at Desert Dome 1 (The one that look like a Train Engine). By conincidence I save and Exit the game after killing the boss, when I reload the game, it start off at the same area. I killed the boss like 20x. I have 20x turbines.

    Can someone tell me the exact location of the Turbine? (:

      The turbine comes the same way as the fuel cell, knocking off the big baddies in seaside. I also got a turbine taking out the boss up in Yellow Sand on another mission. I had dropped more turbines than fuel cells in the course of my game so that when I was ready to turn in the 2 fuel cells I had collected 3+ turbines.

    Greetings to yall!
    Just bought the game yesterday [March 01, 2010]
    The very first PAID game ever after the purchase of my bright abd shinny iPhone last February.
    I played Heavy Mach Lite played up to level 17, having Ruin Base and Sky Way. The HM2 Lite only allowed me to Sky Way and the door was shut. I thought I could retain my Level if I buy the HM2. I was wrong. So I'm back again from scrap. Currently in Sky Way Base [Grinding Level] with minimaly taking up Missions only. I'm still equipted with all the "Stock" wep, body feet and etc.
    Say I got 3 gun Barrel D and some fuel 100, fuel 400 and etc. Should I sell them or leave them... I noticed that the inventory space is just 3 pages, and as I read all your comments, there are really a huge list of things to keep. Such as Fuel Cells and Turbines which I see very often.
    The game is great I agree with everyone. RPG or NOT I don't mind. I'm just in for the [Sound] of the Machine Gun and all the other Sound Effects the sound of the blowing enemies. I just like the idea of blowing up a tank in one (1) shot and all other cool stuff. It's my way to relax BTW. Really reminds me of my favorite game Front Mission.
    Any ADVISE for the "Newbie"? (Me)

    To the Dev,

      "Fuel cells and turbines" which I see very often? WTF?

      • Lt. Roize

        Please don't go on jumping to "WTF" so fast.

        What I meant is that Feul Cells and Turbine which I see most often IN THIS FORUM DISCUSSED.

        My bad if you have been mislead.

    Greetings to yall!
    Just bought the game yesterday [March 01, 2010]
    The very first PAID game ever after the purchase of my bright abd shinny iPhone last February.
    I played Heavy Mach Lite played up to level 17, having Ruin Base and Sky Way. The HM2 Lite only allowed me to Sky Way and the door was shut. I thought I could retain my Level if I buy the HM2. I was wrong. So I'm back again from scrap. Currently in Sky Way Base [Grinding Level] with minimaly taking up Missions only. I'm still equipted with all the "Stock" wep, body feet and etc.
    Say I got 3 gun Barrel D and some fuel 100, fuel 400 and etc. Should I sell them or leave them... I noticed that the inventory space is just 3 pages, and as I read all your comments, there are really a huge list of things to keep. Such as Fuel Cells and Turbines which I see very often.
    The game is great I agree with everyone. RPG or NOT I don't mind. I'm just in for the [Sound] of the Machine Gun and all the other Sound Effects the sound of the blowing enemies. I just like the idea of blowing up a tank in one (1) shot and all other cool stuff. It's my way to relax BTW. Really reminds me of my favorite game Front Mission.
    Any ADVISE for the "Newbie"? (Me)

    To the Dev,
    I like It! So I bought it!
    IMHO, Great Game!
    PS. Downloaded it 03,01,2010 but I did not see what version it was.. lol.

    the game will be more cool if the stuff (radar, life 2000hp etc), have an utility... For example, one or two slot on robot, extras slot, to put this item. For example, radar show ennemies on the map, etc... extra life, etc... like diablo game.

    With the attitude that the developer gives, this game is such a waste of time. People should not support a developer who writes crap like "I'd like to see you gamers make a game like this" and thinks the complaints are all BS. Who knows when the next update will be, and this game is riddled with bugs. Buying more than 255 of the same item would cost you that amount of money, but you only get 255 in the end; helper bots have the worst AI in the history of video gaming, they seem to simply love to get hit by missiles, and fly right towards missiles; there's no "drop item" function, you simply discard the item if you do not have space anymore; whenever you pause the game and the screen shuts off, when you resume the sound and/or music are gone; the list just goes on and on. Oh and fuel cells are completely impossible to get. I started hunting for them at level 35, and now I'm at 51 and still didn't get a SINGLE fuel cell. SIXTEEN LEVELS OF NONSTOP HUNTING, that is completely ridiculous. Who ever heard of a quest item that takes weeks to get?? A QUEST item!
    Congrats IndieApps, you've just landed a spot in my list of least favourite developers; it's mostly because of your attitude towards gamers. We pay you to play a game that is playable, and we pay you for updates that fixes bugs in the game that is your fault in the first place. If you refuse to do any of these, do you honestly expect further investment from us?

    I got the Boss 01 (The Big Tank in wetlands) then I died after it blew up.

    Meaning - I did not get the Camera A. But I got the Circuit Board.

    Question: Does it mean that I should start all over again? Currently level 13 now.

    Thanks Guyz!

    • Lt. Roize

      Never mind.. I started all over again.

      • Lt. Roize

        Now I have tons of Camera A and Circuit Boards from killing level 23 Tanks.

        So, for people who would have this problem you can always get them again on later levels and in the Seaside Base. I have 20 Camera A and 50 Circuit Boards for now and you can farm them from Level 23 Tanks just outside Seaside Base FYI.

    I finally got my first fuel cell and i will tell you it took a while. I killed hundreds of enemies seaside and was making a regular trip to the equiptment shop and poof there it was! When i say hundreds of enemies i mean more than 3 hundred. I am level 50+ and have maxed out all my equiptment. I have several turbines but, only the one fuel cell. I also wanted to tell yous guys about an easy money making technique i found. I believe it is seaside 6 where the two flying bosses are, enter this level kill the 2 bosses and leave the level real quick and come right back and repeat. Be sure to equip 3 item pickers and wait at the exit for them to catch up. Try your best to ignore the turrets even though they will be shooting at you alot. After a few trips you'll see the credits add up quickly!

    I finally found my plasma cell on Desert 02. I'm level 44 and I didn't have to kill any tanks or turret... the cell was just lying on the map. Guess the appearance of the plasma cell will depend more on the level of your "mech" rather than the things you have to killed.

    @aurora,

    totally agree, just read through this entire thread, realizing that the dev fixed very few issues on the last update that had been complained about previously. it like he/she is not listening. the drop rate issue seemed to be the number one issue before the last update. not addressed. hearing about ideas about new weapons while not addressing the basic complaints of the gamers?

    other complaints:
    -unable to unluck autotarget
    - cant sell something that is already equipped
    - poor english translation (someone in your home country must be fluent)
    -horrible bot AI
    - few bots to choose from
    - drop rate? come on..
    etc

    but in truth the game is good, not excellent, and fixing these issues come closer to being real good

    I did it! I got my second fuel cell and a third shortly there after. I also wanted to address the complaints I have seen posted here. Seriously how can you complain so much about a great inexpensive game? If you don't like it you don't have to play. Sounds like you need a beer, maybe a wine-a-kin, maybe you're grouchy because you're hungry, you should grab a waaahburger and some chili-cheese-cries, if you're hurting that bad by this game, maybe you need to go to the hospital in a waaambulance.

    4. Equiptments: Body with 900 hp 45 Def; Weps: ATK 727-622; SPD: 32-300-17; ARMOR +32

    Question:
    1. I can't seem to get what this means DEF: 1076-900-77 and the SPD: 32-300-17.
    2. Is Making ML-901-Plasma Cell the last mission or Quest?
    3. What is the Max HP for the Body Part?
    4. What is the Max ATK level for Weapons Machine Gun and Missile Launchers?
    5. I did not get any Mission or Quests requiring to find Fuel Cells or Turbine yet.
    6. I already killed 4 bosses.. Any more Bosses for me to kill?
    7. Did I missed out on any Mission or Quests if I'm left with this ML-901-Plasma Cell?

    Thanks in advance for sharing the light over these questions and/or Queries.

    Thanks and goodday!

      just move to the next base (wasteland?) and fight more enemies and you will find tons of fuel cells.

      I'm on the next "Making ML-901" mission which need some camerax200, and I can't find it, and it seems I have finished what they have for now. can't wait for the update.

        The Camera is in Skyway three at the lower right corner. You will need Item Bots to get it.

        The Fuel Cells are for that mission too. They are not the same as electric cells though. The Fuel cells are tough to find, some people have claimed that you can get them from Turret 16's and 19's, but i have yet too see them. Still waiting on an update for that

    Well, I finally finished the game this afternoon! Found the remaining fuel cell at a turret in seaside 7, I'm on level 48. It's really in the levels. You have to achieved beyond level 40 to get the fuel cells. ML-901 Missile Launcher has an ATK 3446 and with 1600/7/0.25s/1.5s awesome weapon! :-)

    Can's wait for the next update!

    Is that the last available mission on the Command Center?

    At .99 this is a great game, I've been playing it solid for over a week now, I can't say that any other app I've got so far has got this much play time. The drop rates are tough and it is just about to get old looking or the fuel cell, but it sounds like they are out there.

    I would give this app 5 stars, no doubt. It would be nice if the developer had a forum for us to rant and post helpful info, but this works.

    Yup, the ML-901 is the last mission. I don't know how long it really took for the entire fuelcell hunt, I was playing on and off... I believe you have better chances of finding the fuelcells in the seaside area. Currently I'm on level 52 and found 2 more fuelcells from randomly killing turrets and tanks in the seaside area. Have fun!

    It is simply anoing stay killing hundreds of enemys to look for a simple item (fuel cell)... The DEVs should be crying on laughs reading these posts!! people congratulating others for just one fuel cell found (and one more to go)!! it must be a bad joke from the DEVs! they get out money and laugh on us!! hahaha! i would it too!
    Im in level 51 and am looking for the second fuel cell for several levels.. simply anoing...
    ok,enough of kiking buds, lets give my 5 cents:
    - the maps are so little in size, shoud be bigger.
    - no option to drop unwanted items.
    - the maintainence and shop separation is simply unnecessary.
    - the screen play should rotate like most apps do.
    - a history line is a must too for the game. and with this could have some sort of ridles, or things to investigate, even some important people to save from guarded places... lets do a brain stom on this there DEVs...
    - More powerfull enemies, could have some sort of castles or big bases defended to invade, enemy fabrics, enemy engeneers (heeling the tanks and stuff)
    - the pickes and atakkers should be smarter... they go directly to the fire! they shoud try to scape..
    - most of the enemies dont shot you unless you atack first.. it is WRONG. each enemy should have its own radius radar, if you be n it, they shoud start to atack you, becouse both of are ENEMIES.
    - more space for itens, or a drop item option.
    - you could be other things like helicopter, plane, even space ship having apce maps and enemies and missions, in other planets... the options are endless...
    - Multiplayer (perhaps in a world like DIABLO would very nice) and would increase the valor of the game.

    Come on guys, it is MONEY, people wants to pay you for more game!! LETS WORK HARD, HIRE PEOPLE!! it has space to raise the price of the game, so lets do it, or END IT.

    Oportunities lie this one do not apear all the time, so take it, or you could sell it to a bigger company that could do it all, but dont loose the opportunity. You should even stop all other projects that you dont know if are going to have success to use all you energy on this one. You could even take the game to other plataforms, like PC, MAc, PS3, etc...

    dont loose time and please no more cries like "no more complains or make your own game", this are loosers. And be quicker, everyone is becoming frustrated, and soon will find another game, and than bye bye to you.

      Haha you wrote the best comment ever. I was wondering too what kind of people are chatting 'congrats on finding the fuel cell' - so much wasted time in a software that seems to be a nice proof of concept. I played the game several hours and realized there is no point to all the barrels, tank treads, and other junk I was collecting. I have like three pages of inventory, but it's all junk that does nothing and has no bearing on gameplay. I do feel sorry for people who think this is the best game ever. Unless you are the developers- then I say you play the forums well haha

    It is simply anoing stay killing hundreds of enemys to look for a simple item (fuel cell)... The DEVs should be crying on laughs reading these posts!! people congratulating others for just one fuel cell found (and one more to go)!! it must be a bad joke from the DEVs! they get out money and laugh on us!! hahaha! i would it too!
    Im in level 51 and am looking for the second fuel cell for several levels.. simply anoing...
    ok,enough of kiking buds, lets give my 5 cents:
    - the maps are so little in size, shoud be bigger.
    - no option to drop unwanted items.
    - the maintainence and shop separation is simply unnecessary.
    - the screen play should rotate like most apps do.
    - a history line is a must too for the game. and with this could have some sort of ridles, or things to investigate, even some important people to save from guarded places... lets do a brain stom on this there DEVs...
    - More powerfull enemies, could have some sort of castles or big bases defended to invade, enemy fabrics, enemy engeneers (heeling the tanks and stuff)
    - the pickes and atakkers should be smarter... they go directly to the fire! they shoud try to scape..
    - most of the enemies dont shot you unless you atack first.. it is WRONG. each enemy should have its own radius radar, if you be n it, they shoud start to atack you, becouse both of are ENEMIES.
    - more space for itens, or a drop item option.
    - you could be other things like helicopter, plane, even space ship having apce maps and enemies and missions, in other planets... the options are endless...
    - Multiplayer (perhaps in a world like DIABLO would very nice) and would increase the valor of the game.

    Come on guys, it is MONEY, people wants to pay you for more game!! LETS WORK HARD, HIRE PEOPLE!! it has space to raise the price of the game, so lets do it, or END IT.

    Oportunities lie this one do not apear all the time, so take it, or you could sell it to a bigger company that could do it all, but dont loose the opportunity. You should even stop all other projects that you dont know if are going to have success to use all you energy on this one. You could even take the game to other plataforms, like PC, MAc, PS3, etc...

    dont loose time and please no more cries like "no more complains or make your own game", this are loosers. And be quicker, everyone is becoming frustrated, and soon will find another game, and than bye bye to you.

    IMHO, this game is an OK game for its current platform the iPhone. It's an OK game for such a small device. Gameplay, Graphic, Sound.. it's just OK. And the price of $0.99 is just right for an iPhone "Simple" game.

    YES, they DO attack if you are too close to their agroo radius. Especially the Turrets.

    But I won't buy this game if this were a PS3, Xbox, Wii game. You can't compare this game in this platform to another platform. You cannot "Expect" more from an iPhone app compared to a full fledge gaming platform. If this game HM2 were to be a PS3 game, I won't buy it either... content wise.. No story, Missions/Quests are... "What Ever"...

    Because it's in an iPhone apps.. I think, it's nice to play to pass the time while in a train, subway transit.. for short bursts ONLY. So, I really don't mind WHEN will I find my second Fuel Cell actually.

    If I would find the second Fuel Cell and finish ML901, Whats next? Actually, I already have a "ML900" Atk 3033 1400/7/0.25s/1.5s So, then what? Maybe I'll just keep on playing this game.. bit by bit to kill time.. maybe level on the way.. I'm Level 63 now, now new weps, body, foot, armor.. ATM, I already maxed out everything that is purchaseable in the E Shop. I have 23 Million In-game credits lying around.. Then what?

    Conclusion:
    I don't expect more from an iPhone app. I rate this "just right".
    I would demand "More" if this were a PS3, PSP, X-Box, 360 etc platform game.

    Improvements: I think it'be better if there were easy, hard, ruthless modes. Story/Mission/Quest more content or at least a more "Finished" game.. i would prefer. other wise.. it's "Just Right".

    Well LT, i do not agree with you. I think it is a great opportunity, as i said in my post. The game is the best i have played in iphone. You are subestimating the plataform. the game controling format is great. The game could be developed as i said, if you dont spect it, ok for you, but i think it could.
    The game like it is, for just .99 is a joke! with improvements could reach 10 easy. release an "lite" and develop the rest as i said and it is the path for success.

    o ive been grinding away and have FOUR fuel cells and no turbine.... is this a bug?

    • Lt. Roize

      Hey nub,

      I got my Turbines from the 2 Boss 03 (Big Black Tanks) found in Seaside 07 a.k.a. Beach 07 and kill those Level 20 Turrets if ur up to it. (Good for levelling)

      Hey Rodrigo,

      This game would just be good for an iPhone is what I'm trying to say.
      iPhone because control wise, it's touch screen. SO I agree with you that this game is BEST in an iPhone... ONLY. :)

      Other platforms? well, we have no Touch Screen in ANY of the exsisting platforms yet.

      As far as the developers of HM2 are concerned, IF they would go Big Time and have this game on other Platforms, I suggest they have to really need to "Improve" Tons of things. If they put the game in other platforms, with recent state and contents, I bet NO platform will let them either... and I won't buy this as well.

      Enjoy the game while it last.

      • Rodrigo

        yes, to a iphone game, HM2 is very ok, even more for the price (just .99 ?? a bargain)

        of course if they intended to take te game to other plataforms, they will have to improooooooooooove the game, if you know what i mean... but to other plataforms i automaticaly thought by change the touch screen by the mouse pointer, it would work as same.

        I m not playing anymore... i lost the taste... nothing more to do... what i would do? hanging around the seaside area killing weak tanks and turrets with no purpose? no away, i have more important thing to do. If a upgrade apears i come back to play, if not, tha game ended to me.

        I had much fun with a likely PC game, CYBERSTORM 1 and 2, but it was more strategical, but turn-based.

        I think HM2 would be a good game in PC if they improve and create lots of things, as i said in my first post.

    yearning for the next update.

    i can't believe some people can max out their levels over 100 and still gain exp on the leaderboard. there is really not much to do after you got ML-901, on, like level 45-55.

    Horaayy, finally got the second fuel cell. Best bet is to fight in the seaside area, the big tanks there will drop them, eventually. Went to level 48 before I got it.

    I just wanted to say thanks to all who have posted here.

    I'd reached level 42 when I started my search for the Fuel Cells. If it wasn't for the comments above, I would have given up after several hours of repetitive play.

    The first Fuel Cell I found was in Seaside 7 - but the next and the Turbine were both gained on my travels between there and Seaside Base, fortunately getting both within another hour of play.

    I continued to play to reach level 50, allowing me to upgrade armour and legs to their highest level. I'll happily stop playing now and simply wait for the next installment - whether that be upgrade or V3 (hopefully with a migration for existing character). I hope that IndieApps.kr listens to some of the comments made as there's lots of good ideas posted here.

    Many thanks again for the posts - wouldn't have lasted the distance otherwise

    A trick to work through the levels and gain cash once you have ML 901...

    Go to seaside 5 with three pickup drones. Go to the top portal for seaside 6 and enter, blow away the two small tanks then run along the shore and take out the two flying bosses for about $50k each then go back to seaside 5. Rinse and repeat. No need to engage the Turret 20s.

    Doing this about 10-15 times levels you up and take less than a minute per cycle. This has allowed me to up level all my gear. I ususally will level up two or three times then return to base, sell all the scrap, up level the guns, and go back at it again.

    I am level 51 working to 70.

    Honestly, the game can be frustrating - granted, but I have to agree with our broken English developer... this is a game put together on a shoestring and a neat idea to exploit the iphone-ipod screen and processing power. Now if this is moved over to i-pad... OMG... imagine a squad of mech’s under your control, dancing your fingers over an ipad’s screen ….

    currently at lvl 42 and with the ml-901... having fun thumping all the tanks and turrets that caused me so much pain prior to the awesome atk 3000+ power of the '901'… even managed to have a spare turbine in my inventory.

    Give the developer a break guys - be helpful not a hindrance to their motivation to further develop the game. if the English is not brilliant, think about the fact that maybe English is not the first language of the development team. They are not Gamesoft-Blizzard-Microsoft so they probably have day jobs and also have to be super careful not to accidentally 'borrowing' another games ideas...(read; any game on the market in any type of machine) or least they end up in court.

    I for one can't wait for their next upgrade and even if it isn’t 100% perfect, it beats a whole lot of games out there... and at a fraction of the cost.

    Well I finished the game as it is so far and am sitting on level 54 with no new missions until the next upgrade.

    So I started again, and while going better than before, I am missing something that I achieved before.

    Killing the Big Plain, near the Scouting Plane.

    I cannot recall ever coming across a scouting plane, so I am wondering if someone could refresh my memory.

    By the way, playing it a second time from scratch, is more fun than running ariound killing now under rated opponents wioth the ML-901 and the ATK-3784 (I think).

    You guys are pretty harsh on a game that is only $0.99. The developer may have made some mistakes in his comments, but the first mistake he made was taking your trivial drivel seriously. It’s a repetitive arcade style game, be happy with the several hours of fun you get with the game, and then move on to something else.

    I would encourage the developer to take your criticisms with a HUGE grain of salt. If you cannot frame your suggestions in a pleasant, constructive manner, then I urge the developer not to get frustrated just because, as usual if something is difficult, the first ones to run to the forums are the whinny complainers. (Not my first adjective choice).

    For example, the person(s) asking about the meaning of the weapon stats, the second or third post after the first question explains them well. Instead of whining more, perhaps you could first bother to read if an answer has been provided for your question.

    The whole reason I found this forum was because I was looking to see if anything could be put in the SP slot yet. Others have had that same question; however, when the developer answered I also felt it was a little unclear. But instead of insisting you get a translator like that other unbelievably insensitive culturally blind jerk did, I’ll try to explain what my confusion is about and attempt to further our ability to communicate by trying to be clear myself.

    In both responses to the questions about the SP slot (that I could find), you mentioned the “turbo-43e legs and the Platinum-armor-16b” which you say can be obtained after level 70. I would just like some clarification if those are items that can be placed in the SP slot, or if they were referring to something else that was asked.

    Secondly, if nothing can be put in the SP slot until the game is updated, I hope you take as long as you need in order to come up with the code. I will be anxiously awaiting more updates to this great game, and wish you luck, (and less petty bitching) in the future.

    PLENTY of people with better things to do than wasting your time complaining that you don’t come over and play the game for them will be happy to buy an expansion or update when it is ready.

    Thank you for your time, and I won’t blame you if this never gets answered because you’ve stopped bothering with this forum, I understand perfectly.

    For all of the other people who have been sincere and nice on the forums, sorry, but I just had to say something.

    • jonner

      I just noticed that the game is listed in the review as being $2.99, If I had paid that price, I'd still be just as happy.

Others have had that same question; however, when the developer answered I also felt it was a little unclear. But instead of insisting you get a translator like that other unbelievably insensitive culturally blind jerk did, I’ll try to explain what my confusion is about and attempt to further our ability to communicate by trying to be clear myself.

    In both responses to the questions about the SP slot (that I could find), you mentioned the “turbo-43e legs and the Platinum-armor-16b” which you say can be obtained after level 70. I would just like some clarification if those are items that can be placed in the SP slot, or if they were referring to something else that was asked.

    Secondly, if nothing can be put in the SP slot until the game is updated, I hope you take as long as you need in order to come up with the code. I will be anxiously awaiting more updates to this great game, and wish you luck, (and less petty bitching) in the future.

    PLENTY of people with better things to do than wasting your time complaining that you don’t come over and play the game for them will be happy to buy an expansion or update when it is ready.

    Thank you for your time, and I won’t blame you if this never gets answered because you’ve stopped bothering with this forum, I understand perfectly.

    For all of the other people who have been sincere and nice on the forums, sorry, but I just had to say something.

      I just noticed that the game is listed in the review as being $2.99, If I had paid that price, I'd still be just as happy.

    I agree. Folks need to take a chill. Enjoy the game.

    I am on level 74 but have not seen the Turbo feet nor the Platinum shield. As a matter of fact, there has not been any new things to buy in the store since level 59 or so. I stopped playing a few motnhs back out of bordem from farming the Sea Area 6 (Beach 4). I currently have 64 million credits but nothing to buy.

    Has anyone seen these fabeled legs or armor? Also, does anyone have a weapon more powerful than the ML-TU-2 rocket launcher (Atk 4954 2300/7/0.25s/1.5s)? I have these dual equipped and take out a 20 Turret20 in about 8-10 shots.

    Also, how are people showing up at level 100 when their experience points are the same as those in the 80s and 90s?

    Enjoy

    This is a great game, so far I have no complaints. For 99 cents you can't beat it. For the whiners about how it needs a story. Whats the difference in the end you just blow stuff up. Good Guys, Bad Guys who cares as long as they burst into flames.

    To the Developers of HM2,

    Could you please implement a way to increase the amount of items selected to purchase. Pressing on the + button 100's of times gets annoying and gives you saw fingers, Also once you buy over 200 items, say 400 nukes, only 200 nukes appear in inventory. A button to sell all junk would be appreciated.

    There also a bug which turns your exit window button into a sort button.
