'Metal Arms: Glitch in the System' (PS2) Announced

Metal Arms is an action-packed third-person shooter set on a distant planet inhabited exclusively by robots. Glitch, the game's hero, must save the inhabitants of Iron Star from the clutches of General Corrosive and his minions. As his adventure unfolds, players will explore fascinating regions of the robot planet, drive a vast array of vehicles, solve puzzles, learn to possess enemy 'bots and gain powerful weapon upgrades to ensure the survival of the Droid Race.
Developed by Swingin Ape Studios, the game combines fast-paced action, several varied gameplay types and a unique robotic look to ensure a truly original experience. Metal Arms also boasts an abundance of witty writing and story elements courtesy of a talented team of television and cartoon series writers committed to delivering a genuinely funny game.

Located on the outer rim of a distant galaxy is a planet with deep secrets and a mysterious origin. This is Iron Star, a world inhabited by a society of robots. During a disaster in the science lab, a sinister robot with a mind of its own was created—the evil General Corrosive.
After eliminating his makers, this powerful machine began to fulfill his dream of creating the ultimate army. Using his superior intellect, he took over a robot manufacturing plant and began producing a militia of robot minions dedicated to serving him. He called this new race the Mils. The pillage of Iron Star began shortly afterward as they overtook all of the robot manufacturing facilities to build more Mil soldiers. At this point the Droids, the working class robots of Iron Star, became slaves of Gen. Corrosive.

You are Glitch, the gun-slinging, half-ton menacing bot of Droid City who blasts his way to victory. Found as scrap metal, but transformed into destructive machinery, Glitch is determined to free his people from the evil clutches of General Corrosive and his maniacal army of Mil bots. Unleash a world of pain as you annihilate the General's sinister plan to dominate the world, and salvage the robot race.

Features :

  • Battle above, below, and on planet Iron Star through six unique environments and over 50 missions including sniping, sneaking, puzzle solving, and non-stop shoot' em up action.
  • Exploit 18 deadly weapons to dismantle the militia-literally piece by piece
  • Possess and play as one of 12 other friendly and enemy robots, including bosses.
  • Get behind the wheel of 4 unique combat vehicles.
