Crashes on iPad 2 with iOS6 (64gb 3G model)

Excellent Game! These guys converted this superbly.
PLEASE Do Not listen to people complaining about the controls!
They are perfect...perhaps you can add different type of controls...but not take away the current method. As long as there is also iCade support and other wireless control support. People somehow don't get that this is a touch screen and the controls are NOT physically real! They are virtual and work great for that.

ANYHOW ....I bought this for my iPad 2 specifically (also downloaded on my iPhone 4s with iOS8.1 (12B411) and it works) but it immediately CRASHES upon opening.

Or otherwise allow us to download an older version as other apps allow when it detects you have an older iOS.

I payed for this so please.....other iOS 4.3 and upmusers would love you and you them because its more money for you.

I think iOS 7 and higher are pure tragedy....iOS is ruined and crashes like crazy since those updates...I have them on several devices except my iPad 2 ( sooo glad I didnt update)

IOS7 and higher is the Windows Vista of Apple. Tsk tsk tsk.
This has really ruined things for developers and Apple's image.

New update crashes Metal Slug 3 on iPhone 3G!

This was once an amazing port of Metal Slug 3, but the recent updates slowed downed the performance on the iPhone 3,but now this new update made the game unplayable!

Edit: It still does not work on IPhone 3 as of 9/20/14 FIX THIS ASAP!!!!!!!!!!!!


Great game passed it without getting killed and put the rest of the metal slug games out
