Created by Atari, T-MEK combines the realism and strategy of the best simulator games with the competitive thrill of fighting games. The object is simply to prove one's superiority against all challengers, rising through Nazrac's tournament ladder until one meets the supreme T-MEK player: Nazrac himself. While you are struggling up the ladder, other players challenge your rank, resulting in head-to-head battles that can rage with up to six players at once.
In a T-MEK match, you and your MEK enter one of many exotic arenas with at least three other T-MEK pilots. You score points by hitting and destroying other MEKs with your array of blasters, plasma cannons, and more specialized weapons. When a player's MEK is ravaged and explodes, the pilot automatically ejects, grabs a backup MEK, and jumps back into battle. When the match time runs out and the twisted wreckage slides to a stop, Nazrac declares the player with most points the winner. The round winner continues in the tournament for free; the losers must pay a re-entry fee to continue in the competition. ~ Paul Biondich, All Game Guide
