This game is awesome, and when it made the voting cut for GameSpite Quarterly 6, I had no recourse butto write about why that is the case.
Metal Storm is a game I bought back in the day, and loved, and played repeatedly (since it was one of those “hard” games that my idiot savant younger self mastered in about an afternoon, and which stumps my fumble-fingered adult self). Weirdly enough, I bought my copy of the game at a Putt-Putt golf course, of all places. They briefly flirted with adding pay-per-play console games to their arcades, and when they bombed out they sold their barely-used software for cheap. And then, I swooped in and discovered the joys of dancin’ on the ceiling. Lionel Richie would have been proud.
