The successor to the 2D Console Shooter “Metal Slug” is all about strategy. Your job in this Tower Defense Game is to assemble troops that fight for you. You start out with army units, later on you may also utilize rebel units. Each of the included 60 characters and units has its own special abilities. You incorporate them into the game to defend your base – and to destroy the enemy. The currency of golden tickets is easily earned and lets you upgrade your troops and bases. Premium currency metals allow you to purchase new troops. However, it is difficult to earn those – so it will be tough to circumvent in-app purchases. During a profitable mission, a certain amount of energy is being deducted. This is something that you can handle easily in a single player campaign; in the multiplayer mode you do need to pay a lot more attention to how you spend your supply of energy.

Conclusion:
There are a few things in this Arcade Game that are reminiscent of the iconic predecessor, beginning with the detail oriented retro graphics to the 100 battlefields to the powerful soundtrack. Nevertheless, this time around everything is a little more relaxed, mainly because you have troops doing the fighting for you – rather than you doing it yourself. Enjoy and look forward to many hours of guaranteed fun.
