Twisted Metal is the first game in the Twisted Metal vehicular combat series. It was developed by the game studio SingleTrac published by Sony, and released in 1995 for the PlayStation. Twisted Metal was re-released as a Sony Greatest Hits game.


In concept, Twisted Metal is a demolition derby which permits the use of ballistic projectiles. Players choose a vehicle and an arena—or a series of arenas in the story mode—to engage in battle with opposing drivers. A variety of weapons, ranging from missiles to traps, are obtainable by pick-ups scattered throughout the stage; as well as certain "repair stations" that regenerate player's health. The objective of the game is to be the last one standing.


The game's plot centers around a man named Calypso, the host of a vehicular combat tournament called Twisted Metal. He promises to grant the winner of the tournament anything he or she desires, without any limit of availability or even reality. The game's story takes place on Christmas Eve, 2005, during the 10th annual running of Twisted Metal taking place in Los Angeles.
