I don't see how all the rave reviews are justified on this port. I found the controls maddeningly frustrating. Button presses were unresponsive unless timed just so. Button icons were also too small. On fast paced platforming levels where accurate jumping and movement is key, this just fails. And I don't have large hands.

Icade Core Metal Slug X vs 3 Report
----------------------------------------

Played a little bit of both X and 3 today. I was curious most of all which had better icade core joystick controls, although this report is more just a comparison between them.

Bottom line, X is much funner to me than 3. The menus and such are ipad retina, 3 is not.

Framerates seemed smoother in X than 3. 3 felt more like a computer emulation, X seems more like a true arcade game.

3 is older than X on ios, and it shows.

Both are good though.

Gameplay is faster on X, so more frantic and arcade like.

Music and sounds are a lot clearer on X, can hear a little hiss in 3.

Both have great icade core support, but X seems more like a true arcade game.

Couldn't figure out though if it was a better icade integration, or just that X was better and faster.

Final thinking, X is much better than 3 on ios. Get X, and buy an icade core joystick and use hdmi tv for a true console arcade experience.

Screenshot of X with my icade core. Sexy!

Buy an icade core, then you will have absolutely no problems.

I was kinda like you before, didn't play much due to the touch controls. Needs physical buttons and a big stick.
