Still slugging it out

Product: Metal Slug 2
Publisher: SNK Playmore
Format: Android, iPhone, iPad
Genre: Action, Multiplayer, Shooter
The Metal Slug series is one of the most consistently enjoyable the gaming world has ever seen, and despite SNK's apparent refusal to adhere to release chronology, Metal Slug 2 continues in that same vein.
This is an arcade classic in your pocket, and while it faces some of the same problems as the already released Metal Slug 3, its cartoon violence is still entertaining enough that you're not going to mind too much.
Metal thrashing mad
The game is a side-scrolling platform shooter in which running and gunning are very much the order of the day. You play as a lone soldier, or one of a pair if you link to a friend's device over Bluetooth, taking on an vast array of creatures and combatants in order to stop the evil General Morden.
It might not be the perfect fit for touchscreen devices, but Metal Slug 2 is still an awful lot of fun
