SNK Playmore has announced the release of Metal Slug 3, an iOS (and Android) conversion of their classic “run and gun” side-scrolling action game which originated on the Neo Geo system. It’s available on the App Store as a universal iPad/iPhone app for $6.99.
The original arcade game is intact in the “Arcade” mode, and additional enhancements have been made too, like a “Mission” mode that lets you select whichever stages you’d like to play.
The game lets you command “Slug” vehicles including Slug Mariners, Drill Slugs, Elephant Slugs and the original Metal Slugs and Slugnoids. A branching map system lets you take a different route to the end of the game.
Metal Slug 3 also features Bluetooth cooperative multiplayer support and worldwide network ranking functions.
