    "If you've been around these past few years I'm sure you've heard of Clash of Clans, its success and the multitude of clones that followed in an attempt to cash in on said popularity. That being said it is popular for a reason and if you want to enjoy a fun game, give it a go."

    "This game is a bit of a mixed bag, while the game itself can be kind of fun, everything takes far too long, so you'll probably become bored with it after not too long. If you don't mind the game being a serious slog to get anywhere, maybe give it a try, but I'd say don't bother."

    "This is an app designed for Android smartphones only. There is no indication that it will also work on Apple products. The title of the game includes "Mech" not "Mac". This is a cool little game, however, where you have to outsmart the other machines in order to blow them up. You can choose your weapons from a pop-up screen, which mostly look like like super-machine tanks, helicopters and robots. This is a great little game to keep you entertained while you're waiting in line or stuck in traffic that is not moving."

    "MechCom 2 is a cool real-time strategy game In it you can et up new bases, collect resources and design your own mechs to demolish the enemy. The game is similar to the first MechCom but the gameplay is drastically improved. If your a fan of real time strategy games then you will love this app. "

    "This is nowhere near the best real time strategy game, and there are plenty of others that do not cost money like this one does. There is not really anything wrong with the game, but it has no special features to call it the best."

    "I found this RTS game to be fun and neat in its own regard, but also lacking in the graphics department. The gameplay is decent for an RTS though. I think the thing that is most inviting about this game is that it feels relaxed when you are in the world and playing (the world keeps you interested in the game). I would say it's one of the better RTS games on Android."
