Follow the echoes of a lost civilization in a visually-stunning post-apocalyptic world where only robots survive to fight a never-ending war. Fight towards your goal and piece together the fragments to reveal exactly what happened when the old world ended. Is this the dawn of a new Epoch? And how can you find the one person you were originally assigned to protect?


Control your character with intuitive finger swipes. Make split-second tactical decisions, take cover, select targets, dodge incoming fire, utilize special abilities, and launch countermeasures!


Battle escalating waves of robots in arena-style combat, and upgrade yourself with pieces torn from your fallen enemies! Configure your robot with dozens of weapons, armors, boosters and counters.


Fight in multiple locations across a vast and ravaged city, and gather fragments of the past with logs from a cast of characters, each with their own perspective on the apocalyptic events that destroyed a once-proud civilization.


Utilize the enhanced visual capabilities of the iPhone4S and iPad 2 with high-resolution graphics powered by the UnrealEngine, the same engine used to create the visuals of the award winning Infinity Blade.

I bought this game so I could get the ogre turret in EPOCH.2 but I still don’t got ogre turret. Why?

Great Game, with a few exceptions


Epoch is without a doubt one of the best games I've seen on an iOS platform. The cover shooter style works really well with the iPhone, and is definitely better than FPS attempts I've seen on iOS.

I really enjoyed unravelling the storyline through the Intercepts feature. It really gives a wide view of what happened with official and personal recounts. My favourite that comes to mind are the accountants', which really added a emotional depth to the game. The binary at the end was also a pretty cool add-on.

if I had to nitpick though, I did have a few problems here and there. The most apparent I came across was the difficulty curve. I played through easy at a comfortable, yet still challenging pace. But once that boss level came, I saw myself replaying the game a few times to upgrade weaponry enough to actually finish it. I think increasing the difficulty earlier on in a more gradual way would really lift the game.

I also had a few freezes in game after a weapon upgrade. The buttons were pressing, and the menu pausing, but my character was non responsive. I'm also a bit scared to close the game after reading the amount of crashes people are getting.

But regardless of those Epoch is amazing, and it's great to see Aussie developers creating such a sweet game on iOS, and getting the recognition they deserve. Great work guys!
