    Metal Force's review

    Published: 2013-04-15, by Peter Warrior.

    An arcade 2D sidescroller

    • Beautiful drawing and overall design
    • Controls and actions are clumsy
    • Gameplay must be improved

    "Slug Force"

    Metal Force inherits the essence of old school war sidescrollers, a honorable lineage begun with Green Beret (aprox.) and became mainstream with Neo Geo's Metal Slug. It's a genre in which it's extremely difficult to innovate or even display something able to catch player's eye. Unfortunately, this won't be the case. Metal Force brings tilt movement to sidescrolling, what may seem a good idea but indeed isn't.

    We've highlighted controls first because they are pretty illustrative about how this game is, along the same lines as the rest of it. Graphics are good, beautifully drawn, but it's hard to tell when you're shooting at scenery and when to an actual destructible item; animations are meager, and it's a pity because enemies perform a wide array of actions before being ambushed and shot down: they drink, sleep or huddle. However, all these efforts are in vain because overall result is clumsy and playability reaches grades C or worse: it's hard to dodge incoming attacks, it's hard to calculate a jump, and it's harder to shoot at a flying chopper without hitting the ad box with your fingertips.

    Give it a go, it's free. Here's game that dreamed of becoming a worthy homage to Metal Slug and resulted to be something halfway.
