T-MEK is a 1994 arcade game developed and released by Atari Games and ported to the Sega 32X in 1995 by Bits Corporation under the supervision of Time Warner Interactive. As with the system's version of Primal Rage, the 32X port was published by Sega instead of Time Warner Interactive as with other Atari Games conversions.

T-MEK is very similar to Battlezone in design, but uses vastly improved graphics and puts the player in charge of a hovertank. It is set in the future, and the player needs to eradicate the T-Mek corporation by destroying their rivals.

Versions

T-MEK runs with a lower screen resolution than its arcade counterpart and has a less stable frame rate. It also resorts to using a checkerboard "mesh" pattern for semi-transparent sprites rather than the true alpha transparency offered by the arcade (and IBM PC) versions.
