Great game but terrible customer service team

Been playing this game ever since it launched and I just want to give the development team a thumbs up. It’s not always perfect, there are bugs and glitches sometimes but overall they did a great job in reviving the nostalgia and fun gameplay elements. The customer service on the other hand is terrible! Their solutions are never solutions and their replies make you wonder why even reach out to them in the first place.

When game need to be update normally we will follow update but after completing it we want to start gaming they are not allowed to start!!! Why!!! Still need to update then in the first place why came out needed to be updated the game when you are not ready to let players to play??? I can say most of the games allow players to continue after they had completed updated but only this game Metal Slug cannot, funny right!!! 👎👎👎

Good game but..

This game offers a positive experience that evokes nostalgic sentiments from players' childhoods. Nevertheless, it displays a pronounced reliance on stamina mechanics. It is apparent that diversifying the gameplay through the introduction of modes not contingent on stamina would likely enhance players' overall engagement and extend their immersion within the game for prolonged durations.
