Classic arcade games like Metal Slug series are timeless. They were successful in the 90s and they are still today, specially due to the new features of mobile devices: touchscreen and social layout. The guys at SNK Playmore did notice that and they are getting a good response by porting Metal Slug to mobile platforms. Metal Slug X is the fourth title of this series they've launched so far.
Metal Slug X is frantic action-packed shoot-em-up that overtakes its predecessors in some regards. First, it comes with two game modes: Arcade Mode, which accurately reproduces the classic NeoGeo 2D version that we enjoyed at the Arcades almost 20 years ago, and Mission Mode, which is like a free campaign mode: you can select any mission, in any order and re-take it as many times as you want. However, the co-op mode via Bluetooth is what really makes the difference (both iOS and Android support): blow up those charlies with a little help from your buddies.
In addition, lots of new weapons have been added (Iron Lizard, Enemy Chaser, Drop Shot...) as well as an auto-fire option. Just hold down the fire button and keep running. This system is kinder with our touchscreen than tapping it thousands of times.
Although SNK Playmore has introduced some graphical tweaks, Metal Slug X keeps the essence of the original game regarding graphics. No touchscreen response complaints: it's fast-responsive and runs smoothly even on medium-end devices. Its biggest catch is its price: $4 is way to much, specially if there isn't any Lite version to put hands on.
