Customer Reviews

Multiplayer broken.

No improvements have been implemented for the multiplayer mode. Only single player is worthwhile. Stay away if u like coop.

Update fix

New update finally fixed iOS7 display bug. They also added a nice new rapid fire button. Thanks!

Blazing Star

Wow. SNK and Dot Emu have done it again! One of the best NeoGeo games ever gets ported over to the iOS! =oD

The controls are great, with relative touch and joystick options, with the buttons and joystick moveable to anywhere on the screen, iCade compatible, great GameCenter integration, and the graphics are just like they are with Metal Slug 3... you can have them pixelated, or smooth, set the ratio, and add scan-lines. There's also multiplayer through bluetooth, and 4 different difficulties with mission mode for playing one mission at a time.

Definitely one of the best (non-Cave) shmups available in the AppStore.


THANK YOU so so so much for fixing the iOS 7 bug!!! Also, for adding controller support! I can't tell you how great it is playing this on my MOGA controller. It's fantastic. DOTEMU ROCKS!!!! =oD
