Iron Meat is a run-and-gun shooter with an onslaught of mechanics ripped from arcade and console classics. As Vadim, exterminate the Meat, an iron-ravenous mass consuming Earth, and unearth the cataclysmic horror behind scientist Yuri’s experiments on Mars. Overcome mutated victims and machines, evade bullet barrages, and blitz across forest, city, and sky in seven levels infested with meaty brutality.


  • Fast-paced, side-scrolling apocalyptic action through seven levels of raw carnage and badassery
  • Toggle between a retro-inspired or heavy metal soundtrack featuring new music from Darkman007
  • Test your mettle with three difficulty settings and a variety of accessibility options
  • Unlock over 30 interchangeable player skins through game achievements and milestones
  • Enlist the help of a comrade with Local Multiplayer mode




The Meat is all — but will you be the one to stop it?

As it gets closer to completion, the team at Retroware is excited to announce that Iron Meat is the winner of "BEST IN SHOW" at this year's MAGFest Indie Videogame Showcase.

Better known simply as MIVS, this aspect of MAGFest, the yearly Music and Gaming Festival that takes place in National Harbor, Maryland USA, (right outside of Washington, D.C.) and is dedicated to all things indie developer and game creation. MIVS features teams selected from across the globe to showcase their latest work to enable a broader audience for their titles at no cost. These indie games are not limited to console, as much of the selection available at this year's showcase included tabletop and arcade titles as well.
