''War Metal'' is a [[WebGames Flash-based game]] available through {{Facebook}}. The game itself has many similarities with ''VideoGame/CastleAge'' and ''MafiaWars'', the main difference being its [[RecycledInSpace sci-fi]] genre.

The game is set in a world called [[CrapsackWorld Acheron]], where the player takes the role of an Imperial Commander and his/her job is to defend the Empire from Raiders, Bloodthirsty, Xenos, and the Righteous.

There is a [[CollectibleCardGame CCG]] spin off, {{VideoGame/Tyrant}}, which is set several decades in the future.

War Metal is available on Facebook, [[http://www.kongregate.com/ Kongregate]], and most recently, [[http://www.armorgames.com/ Armor Games]].
