Metal Slug for Revolution/Wii

by racketboy Tue May 02, 2006 8:03 am

http://www.racketboy.com/retro/2006/05/ ... t-for.html

SNK's planning a Metal Slug complication for the Revolution/Wii that will support the motion-sensing controller. I kinda have mixed feelings about what the control scheme will be like since I'm already used to playing it a certain way.

Any ideas on what it might be like?
Hopefully it will also support traditional controls.

Man, I wish E3 would just get here already!

I think some crosshairs for the motion detection would be frikin sweet. Then it would play like Abuse. I could totally play Metal Slug like that.

Abuse :)

Abuse, one of the best freeware games I've ever played. You can google for it as "Abuse freeware" for example, the first link I got has a review and the download:

http://www.pcgaming.ws/viewgame.php?game=abuse

It is a PC game, as you might already have figured out. You play it with keys to move the character, and mouse to aim the gun. You might be wondering what that does more than Quake or whatever - the game is a side scrolling platformer (hence the comparison made with Metal Slug)! That control scheme works wonders, and you can be running right and shooting left, or to the ceiling without difficulty.

I actually have to wonder why we haven't seen more games like that, with similar control schemes.

I heartily recommend everyone tries it, and particularly to retro gaming folk as it is a run n gun platformer.

Ivo.

Have you tried it yet? I'm sure you'll be drooling over it. You'll find a reason to get it up on the blog in no time. ;)
