Fans of the classic 2D run-and-gun series Metal Slug returns to mobile devices this week with the remake of Metal Slug 2, now called Metal Slug X.
This version for both android and iOS is now available for the affordable price of $3.99. Metal Slug X touts itself as an “arcade perfect” version of the NEOGEO port with new additions.
The newest addition to Metal Slug is the Mission Mode where you will be able to play any of the stages in order to perfect your technique and take them all on at once. You will also be able to customize the controls for Metal Slug X so now you will not be forced to play the game in a situation where if you have differently sized hands, you will be able to adjust the position of the buttons in Window Mode.
In Metal Slug X, you will also be able to access leaderboards using your device’s network functions. But the most appealing part of this version is the multiplayer which makes Metal Slug unique. Unfortunately, multiplayer is only available via Bluetooth so you AND your friend will both have to purchase the game in order to play together. For those of you who are familiar with the franchise, the multiplayer mode is the way to go so make sure that you have friends who want to play with you.
Metal Slug X is available now on the iOS and Google Play Store for $3.99. You will have to have iOS 4.0 and Android 2.3 and later in order to play this game.
