Abandonware DOS title

The most popular robots / mechs games

Since Isaac Asimov's books, robots have been very popular among science fiction readers. Much later, robots (and the so called "mech", popularized by pen and paper RPGs and anime cartoons) began to appear in early video games: think about Robotron. DOS gamers saw some robot action especially thanks to video game series like Mechwarrior, BattleTech or Mega Man.
