One of the key features of Heavy Metal is its diverse range of environments. Players race through various futuristic landscapes, each presenting its own set of challenges. These terrains range from urban settings with tight corners and obstacles to open areas that allow for high-speed chases. The variety in track design keeps the gameplay exciting and requires players to adapt their strategies to the different conditions.

The game's combat mechanics are straightforward yet engaging. Players can use a variety of weapons to attack their opponents, including guns and missiles. Managing ammunition and choosing the right weapon for each situation is crucial for gaining an edge in combat. The vehicles also have a health meter, and sustaining too much damage can lead to the player's downfall, adding a layer of strategy to the gameplay.

The game's fast-paced action and strategic combat continue to make it a memorable title for fans of retro gaming.
