Game Information

Available on:PlayStation 4Dec 21, 2017
PCDec 21, 2017
Nintendo SwitchDec 21, 2017

Publisher: UNTIES

Genre: Strategy

A turn-based strategy game of intrigue with a distinct Japanese flavour that takes place in the aftermath of your king's assassination.

Roll out the tanks, create more troops, expand your squad, and struggle for territory with war room levels of control!

Outfight the enemy with your own army of foot soldiers, tanks, helicopters, tactical vehicles, and fighter jets. Capture rival territories and extend your military power over the sprawling map of Zipang. Follow the gripping story of Nathan Gries and answer for yourself what is – and what isn't – worth fighting for, as he commands his units to victory against the villainous nation of Zipang.

Inspired by turn-based strategy games of the past, TINY METAL takes the finely honed gameplay of classical Japanese war gaming and brings it into the modern era with great graphics, 15 unique units, and never-before-seen gameplay mechanics.

TINY METAL is the Japanese arcade war game you wish you had as a kid.

Underneath a forgettable campaign and unimpressive AI, Tiny Metal houses the seed of a really deep and entertaining multiplayer wargame. But until a head-to-head mode is added, it's not much more than a set of unchallenging training scenarios broken up by far too much overwrought dialogue. I had plenty of fun with it, but didn't get the kind of edge-of-my-seat decision-making moments that turned the tide of a difficult battle I could find in similar games. I'd recommend delaying your enlistment until all the pieces are in place.

A perfectly competent Advance Wars clone, but until the free multiplayer DLC turns up it's only the half the game it should be.

This charming strategy game offers some cheap thrills, but the battles grow old quickly thanks to a lack of depth
