Awesome arcade port and very good controls for fast paced game like this, even though they need some practice to be mastered.Graphic,sound , effects are all amazing, paired up with lot of humorous references ( I almost died of laughing after seeing Japanese underground bunkers and their weapons , and huge and insane bosses that bring you mind blowing, but unfortunately also short action experience.

Trying to play this on my iphone 5 with iOS 7.0.4, and the game is wanting to display in portrait mode. Really hope a fix (along with widescreen support) is in the works... Along with MSX, MSIII is my favorite run n gunner.

Make sure you contact DotEmu who i believe did the version. One of their other games wasnt appearing properly on ios7 so i contacted them. The more people who contact them the better

Thanks, yeah, I sent a tech support e-mail to both DotEmu and SNK. This happens with both MSIII and Blazing Star, so hopefully it's something that'll get fixed eventually. Hoping that they allow for positioning of the controls in the deadzone areas (even if the gameplay area isn't stretched to fit the 4inch screen, having static images there and allowing for controls to be put there, or your finger to move in the deadzone and still control your ship, in the case of Blazing Star, would be freak'n great). Blah... I'll post again if they respond.

Thanks. I got a device back saying 'thanks, we'll look into it...' usual type of thing

I must admit i'm stunned the devs hadnt realised earlier, or to be fair perhaps people have hardly played these games and havent mentioned it. I hope they fix them, really like Dot Emu

I wish they would just say 'it'll be fixed in an update....'. I mean 'evaluate' ? Evaluate that the only Metal Slug game which doesnt work on ios7 should be updated ? Hello ?

Tempted to leave 1/5 star feedback as i'm sure that'll help them 'evaluate' to change it or not !

Looking on iTunes lots of people have had the same issue for the game since iOS7 came out a few months ago. I've sent a moaney email to Dot Emu asking when they're going to fix it. Left a 1 star review as well. Very frustrating. If they dont come back with any decent reply i'll moan to Apple to try and get my money back as its the principle

Got a reply from Dot Emu, seems its more to do with SNK than Dot Emu....

"Sorry about that and I completely understand your feeling.

The fact is we already updated those SNK games but it has to be SNK to put it live, we can't do anything more... Unfortunately, we pushed it as best as we can and they didn't send the update to Apple yet.
I hope they will do it as soon as possible because there are a lot of frustrated people
I will let you know as soon as I got news about it, it's in SKN's hands now..."

Now emailed SNK....

techsupport@snkplaymoreusa.com

Please do the same, more people they have contacting them it can only help. Metal Slug 3 (And Blazing Star) dont work on ios7
