BioMetal is a left-to-right side scrolling shoot 'em up, developed exclusively for the Nintendo SNES by Athena Co and published by Activision.
After the Great War that took place some years ago among different alien nations, the Galaxy is now divided into smaller territories. When the War finally ended, everything seemed so peaceful but this peace didn't last too long since a particular alien race is already planning another evil attack. So they return, in order to complete their most recent experiment mixing animals with machines. The outcome of this experiment is Biometal, a very powerful AI creature, half machine and half animal. As a skilled combat pilot, you are assigned to pursuit and shoot down each and every enemy spaceship and put an end to the aliens' plans once and for all. Your only faithful weapon is your MF-92GX super fighter, a very agile an d capable aircraft armed with laser guns and missiles. The enemy hordes are countless and consist of numerous aircrafts of different sizes and powers. You must cover your back and beware for your nation's future is now in your hands.

Athena Co did a great job to this game. The SNES shows some "teeth" in terms of graphics and sound. The graphics are fantastic, featuring numerous colors on screen and a very fast -and particularly smooth- animation, with dozens of sprites simultaneously on screen. The sound effect are quite solid but the element that makes this game unique is its music scores. From the intro music to the in-game paranoia, if you connect your SNES with a stereo audio source you will witness a bunch of awesome techno-style music scores (resembling 2 Unlimited's songs!!)
