For a second attempt, Area 35 has done a solid if unspectacular job with Tiny Metal: Full Metal Rumble. They’ve addressed a few complaints about the game, especially in handheld mode for me, which is pretty impressive for a year and a half turnaround between games. If the initial load and maps themselves weren’t so long as to make it a chore to play in bursts, this could be an all timer. It’s not a general, but sometimes you need staff sergeants.

Tiny Metal: Full Metal Rumble is a great improvement on its predecessor Tiny Metal. If you like Tiny Metal or Advance Wars you will likely enjoy Full Metal. The price of $18.89 CAD for this game is a good deal if you are a fan of the genre. There was plenty of content both in the campaign and through the skirmish mode. The character models were well done with an overall pleasant art style. All things considered, this is a solid turn-based strategy game that builds well on the previous game.

Tiny Metal: Full Metal Rumble has some improvements over its predecessor, but falls into the same trap of letting you quickly spam units to win most missions. With a dull story that never grabs you and decent but unremarkable gameplay, Tiny Metal still has room to grow.

Since Advance Wars is one of the few games we consider to be essentially perfect it’s no surprise that this only comes so close to matching it. But while Tiny Metal: Full Metal Rumble certainly isn’t flawless it is a great strategy game in its own right and if Advance Wars really is gone forever then this is a very acceptable second best.

Tiny Metal: Full Metal Rumble surpasses both its predecessor and the recent Wargroove to become the number one Advance Wars clone available on Switch right now. Indeed, it may be fair to say that this time around Area 35 has beaten Advance Wars at its own game with a super-tight and generous SRPG that takes the best from the greats it emulates and wraps them up in a much more modern and satisfying package.

It’s not a bad game by any stretch, but, surprisingly, the relatively obvious tactical, strategic, and presentation flaws didn’t show up in some form of pre-release testing. With more time in the oven, Tiny Metal: Full Metal Rumble could have been something special. As it stands, it’s hard to recommend to any but those that are in dire need of an Advance Wars-style experience.

Tiny Metal: Full Metal Rumble representa uma evolução de qualidade que corrige algumas das falhas do antecessor. Mesmo com alguns defeitos, como o seu início lento e tempos de carregamento excessivos, transmite o espírito da série Advance Wars com a máxima dignidade. Merece o apreço dos fãs de jogos de estratégia por turnos, oferecendo momentos densos e desafiantes.
