What's New in Version 1.2.4
Several bugs have been fixed.
A great port but why is there a limit on the number of continues you can use? Why not make it infinite, it makes the game quite stressful constantly watching your lives count down till your kicked out of the level, please fix this, give us an infinite continues option, pleeeeeease
Remember the 90's
Remember Metal Slug, the awesome super tough 90's SNK arcade shooter? It requires skill and lighting fast reflexes. Well this is it. An exact port. It's still a great game. Now imagine playing it with controls you cannot feel. Your thumb slipping gradually out of the circle that acts as a virtual joystick as you concentrate on the action. Naturally this spells death. So it's the same old story regarding an iOS arcade port, great game let down by the controls.
Let down by controls
Game looks great, nicely designed and looks almost exactly as it did when I played in the arcade and on Roms on my PC. However, the controls are terrible. It is so difficult to aim diagonally it virtually renders the controls as up down left right and nothing in between. So many situations in the game require you to shoot up and right and this lack of diagonal aiming completely ruins the game. Don't buy unless they sort out the controls.
