Video Game: War Metal

War Metal is a Flash-based game available through Facebook. The game itself has many similarities with Castle Age and Mafia Wars, the main difference being its sci-fi genre.

The game is set in a world called 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 CCG spin off, Tyrant, which is set several decades in the future.

War Metal is available on Facebook, Kongregate, and most recently, Armor Games.

This game provides examples of:

  • Boss Battle: The Epic Bosses in War Metal, in Tyrant the Raids.
  • Crapsack World: Acheron.
  • The Corruption: The Blight mutates anything into Bloodthirsty.
  • Green Rocks: Neocyte.
  • Knight Templar: The Righteous seek to purify Acheron from its corruption, and their willing to kill everyone who gets in their way.
  • Scary Dogmatic Aliens: The Xenos invade Acheron for its resources. Their forces include fleets of alien spacecraft, hosts of monstrous creations, and armies of Xeno troopers.
