Bio Metal (SNES) Gameplay

BioMetal is a single-player horizontal scrolling shooter game released on March 19th 1993 for the Super NES.  The game features six different weapons to combat the Bio Metals, an extraterrestrial race determined to destroy all of the human race.  It is down to you the player to eliminate this threat.

The game play is very similar to that of the R-Type series of games in looks, with the final boss even greatly resembling and behaving similarly to that series’ iconic boss enemy.  Graphically this looks good.

Weapon power-ups are gained by destroying pods and picking up the released power-ups, allowing the various weapon types to benefit. Some weapons do cancel each other out. The player  has a defensive shield in the form of four spinning orbs that circle around the ship when activated.

Bio Metal (SNES) ROM Download

Question : Is It Illegal To Download and Play a ROM of Bio Metal ?
Answer : Yes it is illegal. We will not supply any links to download the Bio Metal rom file as we want to keep this site legal.  Nintendo have posted the following on there website “whether you have possession of a Nintendo ROM for a limited amount of time, i.e. 24 hours, it is illegal to download and play a Nintendo ROM from the Internet”  which makes it clear that downloading ROMS is completely illegal.

A lot of people say this is a grey area, Some say as long as you own the game on the SNES you can download and play the ROM as a backup to the physical media, this is not true.  Nintendo see ROMS as a threat to date to the intellectual property rights of video game developers.
