Metalion, the action mecha shooting game is coming to the iPhone and iPod touch with new specific features: forget about virtual keypads: just 2 fire buttons are necessary to perform all the attacks: primary, charged and bomb. Now, forget about directional keypad, since you won’t find it! Instead, the game uses a full tilt-based control system that allows you to play the game with a single hand!

Eradicating mutants has never felt so intuitive!

Before starting the fight, choose among 3 robots with different Speed, Power and Defense stats. Then go to the Remodeling screen to fine tune your mecha’s stats and equipments and get ready for your mission.

If you do well in the missions, you will be able to gather enough mineral to purchase upgrades for your robot. Beware of the boss and sub-boss characters: you’d better keep your Bombs (Special attack) for them, since they are resistant and extremely dangerous!


Move your mecha by tilting your device.

Fire Bomb (Special attack) with the Bomb icon (left): be careful: the quantity is limited.

Fire Primary attack by holding the Attack icon (right).

When the attack gauge is full, release to launch a Charged attack.

All attacks vary depending on your character.


Save your Bombs for the fights against the bosses.

Watch your shield value (mid-bottom of screen): you will lose HP if you get hit when your shield is low.

Spend your mineral wisely: Bombs and Units disappear after use, while other upgrades are permanent…

The difficulty is already quite high in Easy mode: don’t be ashamed, this is definitely NOT a “rookie” mode.

Thanks for the update

Glad to see the game is still being supported, I was worried when it disappeared from the App Store.

It still really chugs along at a low frame rate on my 3G, especially when bosses are on the screen. Which is strange, because the graphics are actually pretty bad. It looks ok in screenshots, but movement is jerky and the enemies look like low-res 2d sprites. Don't expect to be blown away by the effects.

That said, it's just so much fun to play I don't really mind the issues. The tilt controls work great; it's easy to move anywhere you want quickly. Turn on auto-fire and you enter this zen-like state where you just dodge and fire. It's pure action and a lot of fun.

4/5 stars


Reminds me a little of starfox.
Just need to fix up the lag. Then 5stars

The problems of porting game

It seems that just ported mobile games not for iPhone because UI is inconvenience, frame rates are slow, many dot images are appear, etc. I hope you to make this game again for iPhone.
