Play involves punching, shooting and killing enemies, interacting with the pixilated environments to collect useful items. You can combine anything you find to create MacGuyver-style gadgets, weapons and explosives. As you progress you uncover a clandestine plot you need to overthrow.
It's a combination of stealth exploration combat with point-and-click style adventure item management. As you progress you gain experience and skills that open more options for dispatching with enemies.
Throughout the game are voice-acted characters and narration. It's all very tongue and cheek with loads of satirical culture, gaming and movie references. This, combined with the retro gameplay and exploration makes UnMetal an unusual game.
