Best with icade.

It is a very good port with the exception of a few minor details. The biggest drawback will be playing with the touch controls on your phone. Unless you have a larger phone or an iPad it can be a bit of a pain to play the game. I have an iPhone 6s and it does make it a little difficult to see incoming fire. The way I usually play it is on my iPad at home with my icade. The icade and iPad paired together make for an amazing experience playing this game. However sometimes when I am out and about I get the itch to play some Metal Slug, and I can scratch that itch on my phone. The biggest thing I want to see fixed is diagonal shooting please! All in all I am pretty satisfied with the port, and would recommend it to anyone that loves metal slug.

My Review/Rant:

Metal Slug 3 has always been my favorite game in the entire Metal Slug series. I have played this game on the arcade and also on Xbox live many years ago. I've always loved the detailed and fluid character animations and background, and of course the fun and action packed gameplay.
I honestly would like to give this game a five star but it suffers from horrible controls... But what can we expect from DOTEMU, I don't know why SNK hired this company to emulate their games on the iOS... All of the iOS ports of the well loved SNK games have horrible controls and the Bluetooth multiplayer don't work.
And what is up with the limited continues? Should it be unlimited?
And to all those who are reading this who loves to play multiplayer games with their friends and family members... I'm very sorry to inform you but
ALL SNK Games' BLUETOOTH MULTIPLAYER DO NOT CONNECT. What the Fûçk? No updates, No Fixes. DoTEMU is a bullśhit company.

Shame on SNK too....

It's really disappointing that SNK do not update and fix their games' problems and glitches. No matter how many times fans complain. I guess they are just like Capcom. It's all about the money, right?


Excellent but...

I’ve been playing these games since I was a little kid on the arcades.
Now with IOS 13 you can pair your DUALSHOCK or your XBOX CONTROLLER to play on your iPhone or iPad how freaking cool is that!!!! Well and for some reason is not letting me throw bombs with any button on my controller. I literally spent years playing with the screen buttons and never got used to it and never thought that IOS 13 was gonna let us pair our controllers. Anyway... It just lets me shoot and jump. PLEASE FIX THIS!!!
Make it shoot with square jump with X and bombs throwing with O.
