already available on iOS, SNK Playmore's latest Neo Geo port is actually the third Metal Slug
game to hit the App Store.Metal Slug 2
picks up from where the first game left off, so you'll be re-assuming control of Peregrine Falcon Squad members Marco Rossi and Tarma Roving.
Together, they must blow up a seemingly endless onslaught of enemy forces, as they struggle to prevent General Morden from crushing the world beneath the cold steel tread of a massive tank.
If giant armoured death machines weren't enough of a worry, though, Metal Slug 2
's military antagonist has decided to hedge his bets by teaming up with a group of hacked-off Martians.
This means you'll find yourself alternating between mercilessly blasting human soldiers and unloading your Laser Shot in E.T.'s face.
