Steel Empire, also known uninventively as "Empire of Steel" in Europe, was released in the early 90s for the Genesis/Megadrive and was later remade and remastered with some new graphics and sprites for the UsefulNotes/GameBoyAdvance and later the UsefulNotes/{{Nintendo 3DS}}. In between missions, and at the beginning and end, the story is displayed in sepia-tone film screens and the whole thing is given the feel of a pulp serial from the forties or fifties. Basically it's ''Film/SkyCaptainAndTheWorldOfTomorrow'' in video game form, about twenty years early. Surprisingly, remakes aside, Steel Empire never had a sequel.

Added DiffLines:

* BossOnlyLevel: The final level takes place against the final boss and its ''[[SequentialBoss multitude]]'' of forms.


Added DiffLines:

* MarathonBoss: The FinalBoss has ''several'' phases, the very last section of which has no less than 5 (where it changes its attack pattern per phase). Taken even further in the 3DS remake, which adds even more phases to it.

* ShoutOut: The third boss (especially its weak point) is more than a passing resemblance to the airborne battleship from ''VideoGame/{{R-Type}}''

* BattleshipRaid: The third boss. Interestingly enough, you fight it in a very similar fashion to the battleship from ''VideoGame/{{R-Type}}''

* AttackItsWeakPoint: Many of the bosses are like this. One of them requires you to stay near the top of the screen so it lifts its cannon up- the cannon itself is invulnerable, but the cannon stands aren't.
