Metal Arms: Glitch In the System is an original (non-licensed) title from Swingin' Ape Studios and Sierra.

You will play Glitch, a rebellious robot who is determined to destroy the evil army of Mil robots. Metal Arms features plenty of third-person robotic destruction. Glitch sports a large arsenal of weapons with which to complete his task. Original features include the ability to possess enemy Mils and use them for your own purposes.

For variety Metal Arms includes a few vehicle levels, including drivable tanks and 'RAT' vehicles. Metal Arms features some platforming, but is more of a shooter. Helping to keep the player's interest is colorful a character design - all characters have an attitude.

On the multiplayer side, Metal Arms features four-player split-screen gameplay with various modes including Possession Melee (your opponent's kills count for you!), standard Bot Brawl, King of the Hill, Moving Hill, Tag and Reverse Tag modes.
