This weeks we take a look at the PC classic, One Must Fall 2097. The giant robot fighter that not only proved that the genre could work on PC, but that a deep and rewarding single player mode was actually possible. In a fighting game no less. Imagine that.
From this weeks entry:
One Must Fall 2097 (or, as it affectionately became known, OMF) was by no means a radical reinvention of the form. The mechanics were lifted just about wholesale from the various arcade giants of the time. Plus, the setting itself seemed to be based on a popular manga or anime series -- albeit one that didn’t exist. But once all these familiar and recognisable parts came together the end result felt truly special. The blend of science fiction, robot pilots, fighting, role-playing, and customisation resulted in an experience that was not only ahead of its time, but one that also helped define it.
