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.

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.

AWESOME but......

The game is awesome, I love it. While playing the game I have found a few glitches that occur but I’m unsure if it’s only in my phone. When playing the game and choosing a random mission, let’s say mission 2, for some reason, you will be taken to mission one and even at the start of the mission it says “mission 2, start” even doe its mission 1. This happens on any mission I choose and once I beat the mission, the game counts it as the mission it was supposed to be. Also at the final boss, the app either crashes or the screen suddenly turns black and freezes. Plz fix it :3
