Heavy Metal Machines game is a Free-to-play, car battle strategy MOBA released by Hoplon and available at moment for PC playabale on steam. The primary objective is to deliver a bomb on the enemy team base while trying to overcome your opponents and avoid the arena’s hazards. HMM has been in production since 2013 and was officially launched on September 19, 2018.
Heavy Metal Machines game does not follow the traditional genre mechanics, mainly because it does not have towers, lanes, and minions which are essential in traditional MOBAs. Other features that makes this game stands out other MOBA games is the speed of the game, where the battles happen with full power in the first few seconds in the match, and there’s no need to level up your pilot during the game or build items to destroy your opponents and deliver the bomb.
To control the vehicle, the player uses the mouse to accelerate or reverse, and uses the keyboard to fire his weapons. The machine follows the direction your mouse dot is pointing, which is used to turn and to aim your weapons. The characters of the game, called Pilots, have their lore and reasons to enter the arena. There are currently 14 characters in the game and the developer will introduce new pilots and other contents on every season.
The objective of Heavy Metal Machines game is to capture and deliver a bomb to the opponent’s base. To do so, the player carrying the bomb must go through the whole circuit, with very sharp turns and hazards everywhere, such as lava (lots of damage per second) and Droppers (particular areas that force the character to drop the bomb if he goes through it). Players that are not carrying the bomb may take shortcuts through the course to help or destroy the carrier. These shortcuts are closed to the player carrying the bomb.
