I'm with AntiZig, I'm thinking Battletech: The Crescent Hawks Inception / Revenge. Top down 2D, old DOS games. Those games were so awesome.
unfortunatly its not this as well, it is a bit newer then that. The game is most likely not well known since it was a shareware game which came on a cd. im guessing its around windows 97-xp era. maybe it was an indie game but, if i find even one pic of it, ill know what it is instantly. I remember the first level, u had to destroy airplanes at a airport and then the level would be over...idk what to do to find this game :L
Wow, the top "Mech" games at the time were Battletech, Mech Commander and of course Mechwarrior, but that wasn't top down, that was FPS so to speak. You have me interested now.
I shall join in the hunt
Yea ive been trying to find this game for quite a while...i have found some really old games thus far such as Nitemare-3d and Blades of Exile which were great games that i used to play...im now just trying to find compilation CD's to find out if any of them have the mech game in them...possibly in a Globalstar software or one of those "1000+ games" CD's
Some stuff i remember: Holding CTRL did one type of attack (napalm, machine gun etc.) while space did another.
You could drive tanks, jets, Mech robots, that all had those different attacks.
You arent introduced to the flying jets until the 2-3 level.
The lettering for the games menu or title was sort of 3-d like a wordart font or something.
Each unit had a small health bar over thier heads.
I FOUND IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
WOOO!!!! I found the CD where it came from..300 Arcade games D
Took me so long to find it T.T Thanks to all for helping me search
