C.A.S.L.A. ,


I grew up playing Metal Slug with my dad on the PS1. This game brings back great memories and is a ton of fun! Never had any glitches or problems and it's really addicting. The only reason I rated it 4 stars is because the in game purchases are super expensive! Everything can be obtained with in game currency so it's not that big of a deal. All in all, my favorite app on my phone.

Great spin-off

This game does have its flaws, like some enemies you can’t use (the train robot, the plane in level 4 with the laser, the subway, etc.) but it still holds it’s own and deserves to be a split timeline to its garbage sequel (one timeline for perverted idiots, one for actual fans of the original games or Tagalongs like me, I’m willing to bargain here) and should get more updates if they can be done right. By the way, if you say the game is too hard, 1.Save up for good units all in the same class, you need an expensive powerhouse unit in your deck, and if they are all the same class, you get a minor health buff 2. Go back and free POWS, kinda grindy, but the buffs are worth it

Too many glitches and crashes !!!

I love metal slug and all they’re games! But one thing that has been happening is that I’m not able to play MSD because of all the glitching! As soon as I open battle, it just sends me back to home screen! And every time I reopen the app again, before I can even play, it takes me directly to the home screen of my phone. I will always love metal slug but because of this reason, I’m going to give it a one star review. I hope no one encounters these same exact experiences, but I do hope SNK or whoever is capable of fixing this problem, comes up with a solution in fixing this problem once and for all! May everyone enjoy their rest of the day.
