About The Game

The second instalment of SNK's wildly popular Metal Slug series! This game is a side-scroller which puts you in the boots of Marco, Tarma, Eri and Fio. Your mission: wiping out General Morden's newly remobilised Rebellion Army.

Just like in the original, players blast their way through levels by shooting and jumping - but Metal Slug 2 boasts an expanded arsenal for you to wield, including a heavy machine gun, a shotgun and even a laser gun! Not only that, but transformation effects are packed in as well - players turn into mummies after getting caught in poison gas coughed up by other mummies! Your characters can also become obese and slow, albeit with an attack strength upgrade, after picking up too many food items!

The popular two-player co-op mode returns from the first game, so grab a friend and have a blast!
