Compared to other browser games Mech Hero's key differentiator is the introduction of tactical elements on the battlefield. In a normal MMOSG the force of an army is determined mostly by its size. In Mech Hero, the basis of success is to create an army, which is efficient and effective. An army in Mech Hero, does not consist of hundreds or thousands of units.
Every unit in Mech Hero consists of four parts:
- mech chassis
- equipment (weapons, shields, transport platforms)
