Uragun – Fun new Mech Shooter on Steam

Uragun mech shooter

We received a code for this new mech shooter on Steam made by KoolPlay. The base game currently sells for $15 and has a couple of bundles that can be purchased for a little bit more. It’s a 3/4 overhead single player that is pretty easy to pick up and play. With three different difficulty modes, Normal, Assisted (Easy Mode) and Infinite (God Mode), you play missions against increasing more and tougher enemies while gather resources like intel, weapons mods and other equipment expansions. There is an AI that instructs your mech about the different methods of leveling up, and an orbiting station for adding said expansions as well as giving access to a skill tree.

This is a fast, easy to get into shooter game. Lightweight code base, only 10.6 GB of local files, it runs smoothly. The tutorial is short and too the point, however it does not cover much about progression, how to mod and upgrade until you die and are sent to the mothership in orbit. Even then, it took a bit of experimenting to get a fuller idea of how the progression works. There are hints along the way, but some got lost in the intensity of the fighting.

The pace of the game is good, not too over the top. With the ability to change to an easier mode, even one with infinite lives, one can find their way through the different areas fairly quickly. Not having played through yet, we are unable to tell if the challenges get too repetitious.

According to Screen Rant, Uragun isn’t a ground-breaking addition to the top-down, sci-fi shooter game genre, but it polishes many mechanics and features that fans of the theme enjoy. While some may find the motion controls for Mech a bit confusing and disorienting, the experience itself promises to be a replayable adventure. Personally, I found it to be a fun, easy to pickup and play mech shooter that will endure in my Steam library.
