Metal slug - a great conversion, with a few issues

Magfish 64

Metal slug was first released on the neo geo in 1996 and was a arcade hit. Now it is on iOS, so it will of course be a little different. First I will point out the bad things. First of all, the sound is a little off. It sounds slower than the original. Second of all, the controls take a bit of getting use to. Now on to the good stuff. The game retains the same gun gameplay and graphics. There is also multiplayer and Game Center rankings. Overall, this game is a pretty nice conversion and is a must have for retro gamers who aren't at home with their neo geo's.

Great Game but please update!!!


I downloaded the whole set of Metal Slug and it is amazing. The only negative is that it only supports 32 bit. Once iOS 11 requires 64 bit, these games will be gone unless we receive an update. I really hope one gets released soon.

Controls need some fixing


This game would have gotten 5 stars from me but the joystick is just so broken. It's somewhat unresponsive considering you can't take your thumb off of it to move. You have to keep your thumb so close to the joystick it's impossible to move the way you want to.
