Metal Marines





Metal Marines 


Metal Marines is another game I was able to play thanks to the Namco Museum Collection 1 cartridge on the Evercade system. Back in the 16-bit era Metal Marines was on the Super NES and also the PC. Metal Marines is a strategy game that the player must figure out. We place defenses on our island in one phase. Then in the second phase we face missile and invasion attacks. Placing the defenses cost money and energy resources.

Metal Marines reminds me of a lot of RTS video games where the resources must be managed properly. We need to ensure we put down enough buildings that grow our resources. We also need those resources to be defended. I also had to adapt to the computer changing tactics on me. For example the missiles started to drop earlier at one point. I needed to have defenses at the front of the island to stop those missiles from destroying buildings up there.

Metal Marines contains some violence, lack of attire, enticement to lust and more. It took me a few tries to figure out how to play Metal Marines. There are some instructions in Metal Marines but not exactly how to make those things happen. I eventually figured it out and found Metal Marines to be very thought provoking. How could I use my resources (financial and energy) to keep my island safe? Metal Marines is mainly a defensive video game.

I really enjoyed the music and special effect sounds within Metal Marines. The building sounds are especially fantastic. Metal Marines reminds me of the military lessons I learned in the Air Force. Soften up the enemy with missile bombardments before sending in troops. It is interesting all these decades later to realize the lessons I learned in the Air Force can still be used to this day.

If you like setting down defenses and keeping invaders away then Metal Marines might interest you. There is a video of Metal Marines on the Family Friendly Gaming website in the videos section. We will be uploading that video to the video sites we are on in the future. You can check out a short game play video to see if Metal Marines might interest you. I enjoyed this game. I would like to see sequels in the future.
