The Metal Slug series continues its all out assault on mobile devices with the announcement of Metal Slug X for iOS and Android.
If you’re not familiar with Metal Slug, here’s your primer: old school, hand drawn, side scrolling shooting. It’s a simple premise, moving left to right blasting everything that moves, but a tried and true one that’s worked since pretty much the dawn of gaming. And it never really gets old does it?
The mobile version of Metal Slug X is what you’d expect from an older title ported up to newer platforms. It’s ‘arcade perfect’ with some extra features thrown in for good measure, features customizable controls, and bluetooth multiplayer.
