In the mood for some classic arcade shooting action? SNK Playmore USA is out to scratch that itch with the release of Metal Slug X on iOS (iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad) and Android devices today. Priced at a relatively affordable $3.99 USD, Metal Slug X is an enhanced port of Metal Slug 2 that features new enemy layouts and increased difficulty. SNK Playmore USA touts it as “an ‘Arcade-Perfect’ NEOGEO Port” that features Bluetooth multiplayer, customizable controls, and the ability to replay individual missions.
Metal Slug X is easily one of the finest in the franchise, featuring fantastic level design and a satisfyingly steep challenge for side-scrolling shooter fans. While touch controls are usually not the optimal way to play a game that relies on precision, for the price, it should serve as a fun diversion for gamers on the go. Give it a download today, if you’re interested.
