UnMetal is an all-new parody of Metal Gear, the first game in Hideo Kojima's famous franchise. It recreates the experience of playing the original game while adding unique puzzles, fresh mechanics, and thrilling boss fights. The narrative ties into the gameplay in an innovative way and there are plenty of running gags and surprises along the way.


What we like:
  • Cleaned-up visuals
  • Faithful recreation of original gameplay
  • Complex puzzles
  • Innovative narrative tie-in to gameplay
  • Plenty of running gags and surprises
  • Hilarious comedy
