A funny arcade game Icy Tower is a free freeware title by a development studio with an equally humorous name - Free Lunch Design, released in 2001 for PC and Mac. Those who played it remember that the goal of the game was incredibly easy - jumping on an infinitely high ice tower as much as you can before you fall and destroy your sweet sweet combo.
In order of variations, the theme of the platform on which you jumped changed every 100 floors, so, at one point, you were jumping on a wood or forest tower, and those who managed to climb 1000 floors had the opportunity to see transparent-opaque platforms.
Through the years Icy Tower received 11 patches, including new playable characters, high score sharing and the ability to record replays, so one simple tease became a serious infection worldwide. In 2007 Xendex Entertainment conveyed Icy Tower to mobile devices, and the game was so popular that in 2009 it joined Facebook ensemble of time wasters.
By 2008 Icy Tower was downloaded by over 11 million people worldwide, and today, that number is probably doubled. In 2012 the game received an official sequel - Icy Tower 2 for iOS and Android platforms, which was also downloaded several million times. Remember the crazy combos and risky jumps in the video below, which was also the world record.

A few more games inspired by metal that I think are worth mentioning (I'll try to keep this up to date with any suggestions)
Heavy Metal Machines - A nice combination of Micro Machines and Motor Rock with more metal!
Rock God Tycoon - Essentially a Rock Band simulator.
Metal Tales: Fury Of The Guitar Gods - Top-down twin-stick arcade shooter made by metalheads for metalheads.
Painkiller: Hell & Damnation - 90s style first-person shooter with a metal soundtrack and gothic style
BDSM: Big Drunk Satanic Massacre - You play as Satan's son in a twin-stick shooter with a metal soundtrack and nude demons.
Slain: Back From Hell - A heavy metal inspired arcade combat and puzzle platformer.
Valfaris - Indirect sequel to Slain, with tighter controls, prettier graphics and heavier soundtrack,
Butcher - Known by some as the 2D DOOM or by me as Soldat with a heavy metal skin.
Charlie Murder - Control a punk rock band in a beat 'em up RPG set in the zombie apocalypse!
Death Goat - If DOOM was a twin-stick shooter and allowed you to play an a wheelchair bound OAP.
Rock 'N' Roll Defense - A tower defense game that involves keeping unwanted idiots away from the rock show.
A Story of a Band - A quirky little band management simulation game.
Ubermosh Series - Twin-stick series that involve slicing bullets with swords in gun-filled cyberpunk mosh pits.

me gustan estas clases de juegos esta bueno el articuloJune 08, 2020
I mean I guess that's all the original Doom games ever were? Only with even less story!
But I know what you mean about the repetitiveness of the more modern Doom games, I think the fact they're so intense and demanding means you actually get mentally exhausted after just a few hours, I completed the original Doom just a few weeks ago and I didn't get that same fatigue. I pre-ordered Eternal and I still haven't completed it! But I tend to take my time with games and I'm perfectly okay with taking up to a few years to complete a game, so long as I get there eventually.
With Doom and Wolfenstein thriving with modern releases, I think I'd really like to see a new take on the Quake series.May 06, 2020
Not really a fan of the new Doom games ,they seem a bit repetitive ,go here ,shoot these ,go there ,shoot these though might just be me getting old.
I prefer story driven games these days.April 30, 2020
