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....


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

Seems like in the description of the game the devs are currently working on a solution for devices running iOS 7. Currently the game is broken as others have stated when running iOS 7

I'm sorry but these games are a compete waste on iOS. The controls are awful, which is to be expected since touchscreen controls aren't great, but the lack of iCade support is just unacceptable to me. Apparently it sort of works, unnofficially... it's just ridiculous. There needs to be clear documentation; iOS titles are still published like we're living in the old west, caveat emptor.

With some proper control support I'd have happily picked up all the metal slug titles and several of the shumps.

... And to be clear I don't entirely blame dotemu, obviously SNK are partly responsible for some of these issues like most developers, but when I can so easily get these titles for countless other platforms why bother with iOS ports if I have to suffer through the weak controls and other issues.

The biggest missed opportunity on iOS and a complete shame because these are great games and should have been must haves in every gamers iOS collection.

*apparantly these now has iCade support. So I'll be looking forward to playing these soon.

Blazing Star got the update for iOS 7... MS3 should not be too far behind
