Really good game, but some drawbacks

When I bought this game at a discount price, I immediately love it because the gameplay is really good. However, there are some drawbacks for me to give a 5-star rating. First is the frame rate, when there are more enemies and big explosions the frame rate drops immensely while less enemies have no drop. Second is the physical controller support. When I use the gamevice for this game, most of the buttons worked such as the A button for firing and the B button for jumping. But, there is one button that doesn’t work at all which is the X button for grenade. On the gamevice live app, it shows that the X button is mapped for grenade. But, as I keep pressing the X button repeatedly. It does nothing at all.

I would gladly like to give this a 5-star ration if these problems are fixed.

Metal slug - a great conversion, with a few issues

Metal slug was first released on the neo geo in 1996 and was a arcade hit. Now it is on iOS, so it will of course be a little different. First I will point out the bad things. First of all, the sound is a little off. It sounds slower than the original. Second of all, the controls take a bit of getting use to. Now on to the good stuff. The game retains the same gun gameplay and graphics. There is also multiplayer and Game Center rankings. Overall, this game is a pretty nice conversion and is a must have for retro gamers who aren't at home with their neo geo's.

Controls need some fixing

This game would have gotten 5 stars from me but the joystick is just so broken. It's somewhat unresponsive considering you can't take your thumb off of it to move. You have to keep your thumb so close to the joystick it's impossible to move the way you want to.
