SNK brings Metal Slug 2 to the iOS and Android devices.
The feeling of carrying big guns and blasting even bigger tanks while watching them flicker from absorbing massive amounts of artillery is pleasurable. Giant balls of fire erupting all around you as you leave nothing but destruction in your wake, all by holding a button down, is a really good experience. Only the Metal Slug games can bring that sort of delightful mayhem. The first and the third games are already available for the iOS and Android, and now Metal Slug 2 is available for the devices.
It’s an arcade port of the original so that same bombastic, screen-slowing action remains in tact. However, there’s also the inclusion of Bluetooth for two player action and leaderboards.
At first I was hesitant about the price being $4 but remembering how I spent over $10 trying to get through the game in the arcade, the price doesn’t seem too bad. You can find the game now on Google Play and the Apple App store.
