So far so good

Been a Metal slug fan since old day so figured I’d try it since i came across it. Good little game, which is unusual for me since I don’t like mobile games in general. Haven’t had any issues what so ever so far

Best Game on App Store

That’s right! Haha I have always loved metal slugs art design and if the sprites and art cards don’t look good, I won’t play it. I don’t like grinding for ugly characters. The gameplay is simple w/ enough strategy that it is satisfying. At launch there is a solid amount of units that can be expected to grow as time goes on. Lots of side activities, idle “elements”( I don’t like idle games, but side content is fine), characters to collect, plenty of upgrading to do, and many a goal to strive for. I enjoy pvp and it’s good to see that there is some additional strategy once you get within the top 1000 rank(you can’t see an opponent’s lineup until they are challenged. This sets up some room for trickery in that you can place down a couple rank 1 heroes and have some lvl 100 and 120 heroes while still making your overall power look small. I fell victim to this and was destroyed haha). The inclusion of a log-in system that sticks with your Apple ID is fantastic and an essential addition. The reason is I have played metal slug attack before on multiple phones and have deleted it a couple times; in other words I lost all my progress a couple times and it was demoralizing causing me to not want to play anymore. I am very happy with this Metal Slug game and will continue to play it for a long time :)

Must Download If You Like Metal Slug!

I have downloaded and played every iOS metal slug game I have had access too. A couple have stood out but none as much as this game! The devs have really outdone themselves! I usually earmark around $100 a week for my mobile games, but I have yet to see any aspect of the game that paywalls you. This is rare in today’s IOS games.

I will be spending more on this game than any other. The attention to detail is rarely seen but is loud and proud in MSC. Well done! I will be playing for a very long time.
