Armoured Engines is a steampunk western epic following the journey of train conductor Dusty Beats and her partner in crime, the ancient living engine Billy Wylam, as they search for El Dorado. Protect your train and shoot, fling, slice, blow up, and otherwise bother a horde of vibrant enemies, utilizing a fully customizable arsenal of weaponry and armed passengers.


In March 2014, three recent university graduates came together to make a game. After pitching nine separate ideas in a day long meeting, Armoured Engines was chosen as the newly formed Bounder Games’ inaugural project. The primary goal was to create a vibrant, tactile game of medium scope which could be brought to market within a year - ah, youth. It's been a few years now, and the team has seen some changes - two of them married eachother, one is still collaborating but focusing on other projects. Armoured Engines is still in the pipeline, but the team is currently focusing on Stardust Survivors.


  • Vibrant, bold graphic style and pumping music tracks.
  • Fast and tactile gameplay that blends shoot-em-up with tower defense.
  • Freedom to explore any playstyle you choose with a wealth of customization options.
  • A full crafting system, rewarding players who like trying different things with rare materials and blueprints.
  • A riot of zany characters and stories.
  • A handful of hand crafted zones, each with their own distinct style and level themes.
  • Epic boss battles.
