Heavy Metal Machines (HMM) is a Car Battle MOBA developed by Hoplon Infotainment, a brazilian developer based in Florianópolis, Brazil.
The game was launched on September 19, 2018, and before that it was opened for Early Access since January 31st, 2017. HMM is free-to-play and can be downloaded on Steam.
The game design was inspired on classic titles, such as Rock'n'Roll Racing and Twisted Metal, besides its references to the traditional MOBA genre.
Despite the MOBA genre that the game can be labeled, it doesn't follow the traditional mechanics from other titles of this genre. There are no minions, no towers, no lanes. Unlike other MOBAs, HMM is super-fast paced from the beginning!
There are three different functions in the game: Interceptor, Transporter and Support.
- Interceptor: They are the main damage dealers of the game, specialized in preventing enemies from taking the bomb to the final goal. Some of them are focused on damage, and some others have best crowd control.
- Transporter: The experts to carry the bomb from the center of the arena to the enemy base. Usually their resistance or speed are higher than other characters.
- Support: These are the "healers" of the game. They can repair the machines and help transporters and interceptors to survive and take the bomb to the final objective.
