Ratings and Reviews
Fun game but...
When i found this game i was super excited since this is one of the games i played as a child so u was super excited to play, but when i opened the game the controls were so weird. It’s so hard to control the buttons are all over the place even when i tried to move them around to try and make it easier to play but it became more frustrating. I wish i could move the buttons around wherever i want and not just half and only the joycon. Please make this easier to control i don’t want to regret my purchase.
I fixed the controller problem
If you have patience, you should go to controls set the buttons size at minimum and then it’s gets kind of tricky, the buttons abc are not going to move if they are in a certain area too close of the move pad
I put the pause button on the upper right corner first
You should try to move the control pad to a corner as much as possible then try to move the abc buttons to the desired position keeping the move pad’s dead zone in mind, however the a button it’s bigger than the others so you should play whit the size bar of the buttons a little, I spent like five minutes doing this and now it’s totally working in an iPhone 12 Pro Max
I hope it works for you guys
Great Potential But Terrible Controls
Listen to the reviews, they are correct on ALL metal slug games 1-X. The controls are terrible for this game. In easy mode this game functions, but there are critical levels that require simultaneous movement like diagonal shooting or jumping and shooting at the same time. The way touchscreen works on phones make it difficult to have 3 buttons pushed at the same time to execute this, limiting you to only 2 movements at a time. To top it off, each metal slug does not work with my rotor riot plug in controller. It works with every other game except this one, so I’m stuck with terrible controls and the lack of compatibility with one that could potentially fix this issue.
