Description of Gunmetal

Gunmetal is a decent first-person action game, similar to MechWarrior 2 in style except much simpler and not as much fun.

The plot: it's 2219 AD, and your job as a pilot in the Nataka Imperial Armored Cavalry is to accomplish various missions, ranging from rescuing corporate bigshots, defusing nuclear warheads, teleport a battle cruiser into the heart of a sun, and - of course - save humanity from certain extinction.

What sets Gunmetal apart from mundane action games is the fact that you can customize the assault vehicle to suit your playing style: fast and light, slow and tough, or anywhere in between. The campaign mode has 26 missions of various objectives and terrain types. You can also play other players in a deathmatch mode, although the maps are nowhere near as interesting as modern FPS such as Unreal Tournament. The game is reasonably fun, although it is still very simplistic compared to classics in the genre (Assault Rigs and Terra Nova come to mind).

If you want an easy-to-pick-up action fest that will last more than a few hours, offering a good variety of missions and smooth graphics, check out this marginally above average underdog.

How to play Gunmetal

User Almalexion provided a fixed ISO:

I manage to make a game called GunMetal by Mad Genius Software (1998), work on modern Windows 10 computers properly and fully patched with some workarounds and such, and put it in an ISO file.

The game in the website is actually too raw, impossible to patch and even play it normally under new Windows 10 computers. Even the game speed is also not working properly (too fast to play). But I manage to patch it and make it work perfectly and I want to share it. I even put a some kind of manual in it.

I really have some hard time to patch this game, I don't know if anybody see this, everytime I try to apply the patch in here, too many files gives 'Incorrect File Version for patch' error and almost every one of them is a level files and .exe files... And this game has insane amount of bugs in it... Need Help !

Awesome game! Great variety of levels, cool story. Starts slow then builds and builds. The nuke is fun once you find it later in the higher levels.

One of the greatest games I've ever played, you need a patch to finish the game..
