Tiny Metal, an Advance Wars-y strategy game, is out now

Inspired by

If you fancy some turn-based strat-o-tactics over the hols, hey, have a look at Tiny Metal. Launched this morning, it seems heavily inspired by the fine handheld strategy series Advance Wars. Little warmen and warvehicles trundle around little grid-based maps, making careful use of terrain to best shoot each other to pieces. I'm not a huge stratface but do remember Advance Wars fondly so good, great, lovely.

Tiny Metal is also the first game published by Unties, the new 'indie publishing label' from Sony Music Entertainment - no, nothing to do with the PlayStations and whatnot of Sony Interactive Entertainment.

Here, it all looks a little like this:

Along with a singleplayer story campaign (about 20 hours long, Unties say), Tiny Metal boasts skirmish scenarios. 1v1 local and online multiplayer is due to be added "soon", whenever that is.

Tiny Metal is £20/€25/$25 on Steam. It's made by Area 35.

Another game for my 'to play over the hols' list! I can't play it right now because it's the last day of work so everyone has brought in games and Brendan is getting all het up accusing Adam of 'juicing' in blow football by using an asthma inhaler and oh god he's flipped the stadium I must go break this up.
