Is it just me, or app info doesn't show? It's happening on all the threads of today's NZ releases...

I thought it had always been like that? It just only shows the info once the game is available in the US as that's where the servers draw their information from I thought. I could definitely be wrong though lol. Normally we do the whole copy and pasting thing so the information shows but since these games are already in the UK, it shouldn't be too long before it updates...hopefully.

On a side note, I think the App Store hates me; uploading loads of new games just as I started to relax!

Started playing this this morning. It's actually really cool. It's your standard side scrolling castle defense game, but with the Metal Slug theme. It has the usual F2P energy system/timer although I haven't had to wait yet, but it looks like the further you go, the more energy the missions use. It says the game has like over 60 different troops. I've only unlocked 4 so far. There's a ton of different troops you can buy with these silver medals. I haven't won any yet, so I'm not sure if the medals can only be bought with real money or if you eventually start winning them later on in the game. The tutorial wasn't that informing. Anyway, I still recommend it. It's free, so it's worth a try. Especially if your a fan of Metal Slug.

I agree with Noen,looks pretty good and easy to pick up just worried about the medal system really hope you dont have to buy them

This is just like Cartoon Wars, if anyone remembers that gem of a game. The gameplay is great!
I think the medals are purchase-only, which makes me sad. Is that the only way to get new units?
