Luc Bernard talks for ages before showing Mecho Wars

Luc Bernard has released the world’s first gameplay video for his upcoming iPhone game Mecho Wars. Well, it claims to be a gameplay video, but the first few minutes of footage is just Bernard talking about a girl he kissed. He manages to go for over four minutes before showing anything, but eventually some gameplay happens and it looks … not too terrible.

The game is very clearly taking all its cues from Advance Wars, but perhaps being more derivative and less original will work in Bernard’s favor. The graphics are a work in progress, so hopefully the action, especially in the battle scenes, will step up a little before the game is released. Luc’s impressive visual style is as good as always. 

Check out the video and let us know what you think. I can say, without a doubt, that I believe this game will be better than Eternity’s Child.
