Ironcast is available to download right now on Xbox One. We advise you go and get involved immediately.
Ironcast is something you’ll want to be spending your cash on. A ‘Match-3’ game complimented by a huge amount of strategy, Ironcast is set in an alternate Victorian history, putting you in charge of a seven metre tall walking Ironcast and giving you the ability to fight off an invading force as you attempt to defend 1880’s Victorian England. You’ll have to choose your nodes wisely as they are in limited supply and one wrong move could well mean disaster.
£9.99 would usually be enough to start the fight, however for a limited time period, Xbox Live Gold members can grab it for a measly £7.99. That’s an absolute bargain! If you don’t believe us, why not check out our full review, or indeed our exclusive Q&A with Daniel Leaver – it was after all his idea and development skills which ensured Ironcast arrived on Xbox One!
Inspired by Victorian era science fiction writers such as H.G. Wells and Jules Verne. Ironcast is set in an exciting alternative history; a time when refined men and women in top hats and bonnets commanded gigantic walking war machines, laying waste to the enemies of the British Empire. Take control of a 7 meter tall walking vehicle called an Ironcast and face off against an invading force of enemy Ironcast in order to defend 1880’s Victorian England. Battles are fought by generating resource nodes which in turn drive the Ironcast’s various weapons and systems. You must choose how to spend these nodes wisely, either offensively in order to cripple and destroy your opponents, or defensively, if they suspect a barrage of incoming weapons fire is due. Features: – Turn based strategy combat set against a rich and interesting alternate 1880’s history. – Roguelite campaign mode where death is permanent but with persistent rewards from one game session to the next. Drive back the invading forces and press forth for victory! – Hand painted art style. – Inspired by the steampunk genre and Victorian science fiction. – Loot new technology and upgrade abilities from the wrecks of fallen enemies. – Customise your Ironcast with a range of unique weapons and defensive systems. Over 50 different unlockable items will ensure an almost limitless number of combinations. – Passive Augmentations allow players to modify their Ironcast’s weapons and abilities.
