Customer Reviews

Potential to be Great

This game is fantastic, however there is a minor discrepancy that wasn't made when this games controls were converted. The major problem is that the right direction analog cuts off after your finger slides a bit, this is an easy programming fix. You do not have a problem with the other analogs however another major problem is the fact that control commands have trouble kicking in while another is in effect. For example, on occasion the system doesn't recognize the buttons b and a as well as diagonal analogue being pressed at the same time; this is a big factor of metal slug gameplay. I hope someone reads this and fixes it.

Fantastic port!

Though there are always going to be some sensitive issues in regards to controls (due, obviously, to the touchscreen that iDevices feature), this port is as close to the original as they come. You're in for a ridiculously fun time with this game, from all the over-the-top, chaotic action to the meticulous attention to detail as seen in many of the animations and gameplay features. And especially if you play it with a buddy, there're very, very few App Store experiences that'll trump this one.

Multiplayer problems

I've played this game since I was kid along with my brother. I recently purchased so we could both play thru Bluetooth but the gameplay does not synch up with both phones. It's starts off together but after a few seconds both games go out of synch and lose the multiplayer experience. I thought it was going to be legit since I payed for it!!! Really dissatisfied with the multiplayer but solo is fun as always.
