Tiny Metal for PC, SWITCH and PS4 is a turn-based military strategy game by a Japanese studio Area 34. The game was inspired by classic Japanese productions of the genre, such as the Advance Wars series.

Plot

You play as Lieutenant Nathan Gries, an officer of the army of Artemisia, a fictional peaceful country. The Artemisians, however, are forced to fight a war against the cunning and evil nation of Zipang. The singleplayer story campaign in Tiny Metal takes about 8-10 hours to finish.

Mechanics

Tiny Metal is a turn-based strategy game. You assume the control over many units with their own stats, and attack the enemy, taking advantage of the terrain. There are thirteen unique units (you can learn more about them in the in-game Metalpedia). The gameplay is also affected by the so-called fog of war, which covers a part of the map until your forces venture there and dispel it.

The game also features a skirmish mode and a level editor.

Technical aspects

The orchestral soundtrack of the game was composed by Tomoki Miyoshi, known from such productions as Soulcalibur V or I Am Setsuna.
