The 2D action-shooting juggernaut, Metal Slug, has added a new game to their collection with, Metal Slug Defense. This mobile version of Metal Slug has changed things up, focusing on the popular tower-defense genre. So now not only do you get all this bad-ass action but you will get to finally use that brain of yours too in hopes to defend your base.
In Metal Slug Defense you will be sending your units to the battlefield with only a slight tap of the finger. The game includes 60 different characters and units along with the ability to use various special attacks encase you’r soldiers don’t last. One thing I found enjoyable about this specific tower-defense game is the option to customize and level up your troops which adds even more strategy and brain use that your poor little brain can handle.
Thankfully too the game has added in over 100 background stages recreated from previous Metal Slug games. Replaying through these nostalgic filled stages will also grant you more rewards to help amp up your arsenal. And lastly the game has a online multiplayer mode where you can compete with players from around the world.
Since the game is free you can expect some IAPs and since I haven’t had the chance to fully delve into Metal Slug Defense I’m not sure if you will be encountering IAP walls so lets just cross our fingers that this doesn’t happen. Metal Slug Defense can be downloaded for free now in the App Store and Google Play Store.
