Author's comments and explanations:
Metal is a horizontal-scrolling, parodistic World War II...well, you know!

Game objectives

  • Emulator used: fba-rr-v007
  • 2 players
  • Hardest difficulty
  • Aims for fastest no death time
  • Heavy luck manipulation


(i really try my best to avoid them all the time, trust me, but the movie can desync in mission 3 paratroopers/danger barrel, and in final mission on the boat...it will not trigger credits ^^' will provide a savestate if it needed).
Use this savestate you can prevent the desync in last mission.

DOWNLOAD The same youtube encode, This youtube link subtitle's time is 10:53.82 @59.18fps.

Glitch and trick

Don't shoot enemy at the same time.

Any enemies can be hit only once in every 2 frames, except for mission2's boats.

Press down to cancel.

Usually you can throw the bombs or shoot once in every 8 frames. If you press down to cancel the shoot, you can fire the next quickly, evety 4 frames 1 shoot.


quick thanks before better form to mtvf1,coolkirby,x2poet

the record count is low but it is "only" a file where i manually copy paste wip input and adjustment/desync

Nach: Since feos managed to get this to sync, Good feedback. It's mind-boggling how you managed to improve it like this. Accepting as improvement to existing run.

feos: Yeah.
