Retro Gamer and Backups Let all your games live forever

Metal Warriors

$34.95

Much of the game mechanics fall in line with a platform game. In addition to the regular single player game, there is a 2 player split screen versus mode. Each selectable robot has their own melee weapons in the game.

The player is able to pilot six different types of assault suits, and can use different suits in the same stage. At any time, the player can abandon their assault suit and attempt to find a new one, allowing the player to remain in the game even if their assault suit is destroyed. Instead of a health bar, the mechs all show progressive battle damage as they take on enemy fire. The six different suit types are the Nitro, the Havoc, the Prometheus, the Spider, the Ballistic, and the Drache.

Each suit is also equipped with a backpack unit that can use backpack power-ups. These backpack power-ups are rocket launcher, grenade launcher, mine layer, and gravity inverter. Like the suit's ranged gun, the backpack unit may be disabled if the suit takes significant damage. Other power-ups suits can use are health power-ups (instantly restoring a damaged suit to full health), and various upgrades for the suit's primary gun.

While ejected from the suit, the player controls a marine equipped with a pistol and jetpack. The marine can fly in a manner similar to the nitro, but is slower. The pistol is useless against all enemies with the exception of soldiers and scientists lacking armor. Most enemies ignore unsuited marines. The player must eject from their armor to switch armors and to activate switches to open doors. Also, the marine can fit into smaller spaces and scout ahead without attracting the attention of most enemies.

All games are custom made with all new boards, chips and labels . These are not imports from China. With todays technology they are made even stronger than the originals and may even be heavier than the originals.
