Chillingo announced its team-based eight-on-eight robotic deathmatch game Mech earlier this week.

Just a few short days later we got our hands on the game itself, courtesy of the Chillingo booth at E3.

Mech draws heavily on the ethos of huge robot simulation series Mech-Warrior, so fans of these PC classics should feel quite at home with the new title.

This is still a very early build of the game, with a lot of kinks still being hammered out by developer Small Impact Games. With a lot of polish still being added, nothing is final, but Peter does get a chance to find out how controlling a large robot will work on a touch screen, and how the team hopes to implement its free-to-play model.

Mech's massive robotic-combat is in place, however, so we get to watch Chillingo's Dan Tausney show us how it's done, and tell us more of what we can expect from the final game.
