Woo hoo ! This is great news and out of the blue, i hope it plays well, dont mind the high price, this is an all time classic.

Come on guys, less than 10 dollars, thats nothing !

I hope this does well so SNK release more games. Finally ! All the metal slug games i found before were dreadful clones which were scams on the app store.

Probably my favorite MS of the series. Too rich for my blood, though.

There'll be one soon, for some reason the big companies dont seem to do gameplay videos, have to wait for Sanuku !

I know what you mean about the price, part of me is annoyed as i love retro games but they do still charge silly money for them years later when if anything it should be part of a collection for a few dollars.

On the other hand if it was free and full of IAP's i would hate it.

I'm sure many of us work here so for the sake of 7 dollars its not bad at all, i'm just happy to be able to have this on my device so i think like the Raystorm games by Taito, if youre a fan of the original then its brilliant despite the price.

But theres plenty of older arcade games i wish would see the light of day on iOS, only way i can play them is to jailbreak and use emulators (which i dont want to). But this is one game i'm getting for sure at midnight tonight !

Back in the 80's when i was a young kid most games were $10 each ! Often you would save up for one (on tiny pocket money) and the game was terrible and you were stuck with it and had to save up for another month or two.

I think we've all lost our minds when we think $7 for a classic game is expensive when many of us are 18+ and earn money or have decent pocket money !

$7 is still incredibly cheap, again the problem is we expect everything now for 99c or free.
