Metal Slug X (iOS) | FTG Review

FTG Writes: Why don’t camels spit bullets?

As casual games fill our smartphones, it is hard to imagine a game like Metal Slug X being played on one. I mean, could you imagine Contra being played on a Blackberry? There is a disconnect for those of us that played arcade games as our brains drift toward the recollection of putting quarters into a box to play a game. The familiar joystick is missing. The clicking button sounds are gone. In their absence, you have a touch screen you need to mash your fingers against to replicate the same action you remember. That endless pressing of buttons and quick pivoting of the joystick became something that would help you transcend time itself. Would that same exhilaration from the arcade still translate to iOS? (iPad, iPhone, Metal Slug X) 8/10
