Remember when you used to play video games on arcade machines that required you to insert a coin? You were obliged to be good if you didn't want to end up spending all your pocket money. What would you have thought back then if somebody told you that you were now going to be able to play comfortably at home or even on your phone. Neo-Geo's Metal Slug saga was one of the most popular series back then. If you enjoyed playing it yesteryear, you should know that there's now a portable version of Metal Slug 2 for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.
The second installment of the Metal Slug series, the acclaimed 2D action shooter, now on your iPhone.
Sequel to the classic arcade game
After the failed coup attempt on behalf of the evil general Morden thanks to the action of our characters, he's back in town and angrier than ever, willing to create an alliance with aliens. But that's where our heroes from the first installment come in. Marco Rossi and Tarma Roving have nothing better to do than to destroy his plans. You can also play with two extra female characters of the likes of Eri Kasamoto and Fio Germi. Furthermore, unlike previous titles, this time around we can also receive help from two non-playable characters such as Hyakutaro Ichimonji and Rumi Aikawa.
New playable and supporting characters!
You'll be able to make use of a wide range of weapons to complete your missions (including laser guns and firebombs), as well as vehicles to bring some more life to this run and gun and shoot'em up game. You can drive all these vehicles:
- Camel Slug.
- Slug Flyer.
You'll be able to download the game for an affordable price. You can enjoy the experience in the collaborative mode with 2 players just as if you were on an arcade machine. For such purpose, just open the app and search for compatible devices, although some users have reported certain connectivity problems when it comes to this point.
