SNK Playmore slashes the prices of all Metal Slug titles across Apple's and Google's app stores
Any gamers out there who are, ahem, wiser, will most probably have at least one or two fond memories, associated with the Metal Slug series of games. The titles were a hit back in the days, when a kid that wasn't at school could almost certainly be found at the local arcade, and were resurrected in recent years, as part of SNK's portfolio of nostalgia-inducing oldies.

Metal Slug is an insanely hard side-scrolling shooter, which mixes over-the-top action and on-screen explosions with just the right amount of cartoony, cheesy humor, that keeps you entertained even when you are being brutally pummeled by a giant tank / chopper / hybrid machine.

Those of you, who weren't certain whether the game's “magic” has successfully translated on to the tiny touchscreen were probably holding back on paying $3 per title. Well, you'd be happy to know that Metal Slug 1, Metal Slug 2, Metal Slug 3, and Metal Slug X are now available for $0.99 each in both the Play Store and the App Store.

The titles support multiplayer over Bluetooth, so those of you who have a sibling / buddy to share the experience with should surely consider grabbing some copies, as even buying 2 per title will still cost you 2/3 of the game's regular price.

Take heed – we'd recommend playing the games with a controller, as the game is just pretty brutal for touch. Besides, a lot of Android users have reported the virtual joystick to not be functioning properly on their handsets, so be wary. Thankfully – Google now allows you to get a refund within a 2-hour window post-purchase, so you are free to try if everything is alright on your particular device.

I remember playing these in arcades in the 90's the very few that actually still existed... But now that place no longer exists.
