METAL SLUG 3 Reviews

El juego solo se ve a media pantalla y no se deja configurar.. Malisimo.

Tengo problemas ya que parece que no funciona muy bien en iOS 7, porque cuando giro mi iPad el juego no gira y se queda en la mitad.

It’s not supported for iPhone 5! Great game but it doesn’t say it won’t work with iPhone 5 we demand our money back!!! Jusy plain awful!!!

This will not open in landscape. It opens in portrait with half the screen cut off. Thanks snk.

This game is not workin on our phone! Why is that? We paid for it too :(. No good at all.

It is the worst game and doesnt even work on ipod 5th generation so dont buy it.

We remember playing metal slug in the arcades back when we were a kid. Thus game is just a great as the arcade was back in the day.

We have this on our iPod 4th gen with ios 6 so we don’t have problems with it, but here’s what we want. We would really appreciate if You guys over at SNK could please add online multilayer for this? We don’t have anyone to play with because they are all on ios 7 :D. So please consider making online multiplayer a thing please!

Need to make it playable on iPod 5 gen.

Everything in this game we love except for the fact that when we try to play the game, it has a mejor glitch that doesnt let us play it…. Plz fix the ipad mini version… Pllzzzzz!!!

Not working as before apparently when we update our ipad with IO7 stopped working half of the screen goes black and the other is juice and you can not play as it has to be could then updated the with IO7 so it can play since not much use by this game and is one of the best that have metal slug hope and thank you fix it soon.

Our friend and we are having a problem with the game. It doesn’t fit either screen. He had an iPhone 5 we have the 4 and the screen is set horizontal while holding the phone vertically and it won’t turn over to landscape so only the left side shows and the buttons are missing. Please fix!!

Works great on ipad min ios6 But on iOS 7.04 ipad mini retina The game stays at portrait mode with half of the screen cut off. Can only throw grenade. Pls fix. The on screen joy stick control is way better than those on capcom game. We ow.

When we play metal slug it does not play side ways and the controls it only shows half the screen do not get this game until they fixed it so when you see our mews sage showing they fixed then by it later bros.

It’s great but we really want iPhone 5 optimization PLEASE.

The game keeps opening up vertically we really love this game we’ve always enjoyed it but we can’t play since we can only chose 3 characters and throw grenades due to the screen issue.

This is a great game bin playing it for years but what we don’t like is the analog stick because it never goes the direction we want it too like when we try to go strait it go down corner then we start crotch walk and it pissis us off because this made us die so many time also when we start the game it starts vertically that means it doesn’t fit the screen because it’s made to play horizontally and this happens a lot and it makes it unplayable so please fix this also please fix the controls or at least do a controls settings not to move them around to choose your analog options like arrows or swipe like that please fix ASAP and if u people see this please repeat so they get the word thank u.

Problemas con la pantalla de metal slug x lo descargue y solo sale la mitad del juego lo baje para el ipod toch 5 generacin ya lo cancele barias veces y sigue igual cual es el problema del juego.

Dear metal slug creators the game is not functioning normal because the screen always flips right side up instead of sideways. Please help. From metal slug fan.

The iPad version remains buggy. The game conforms to horizontal view no matter the iPad direction. It stays locked. Please fix.

So Please help we just downloaded this app. Every time we started the game, the screen never turns and it doesn’t fit the screen and we’ve downloaded twice and still nothing. Any ideas?

Great classic game but doesn’t work with iOS 7 hence we are not able to play a game we paid for. Please fix ASAP.

Needs optimization to iphone 5!!!

We love this game but it won’t rotate the screen.

You guys should fixed this game app it’s our favorite but it doesn’t show full screen on our iPod 5th generation please fix it.

This is a very great game, playing it on the machines but on the iPhone, we can barely move our character because the game is in landscape mode! Please update for iOS 7! 3 stars until then!!!

The screen is now stuck after we upgraded our iso. Our life isnt the same anymore.

On our iphone 4, half of the screen is cut off so we can’t shoot or jump or not very much anything. If this problem could be fix then it would be a great game. Not that it isn’t anyways.

We downloaded the game for iPad mini but when we start the game it’s fine until it goes to the tittle screen it goes into vertical mode and only half of the screen shows and it stays like that no matter what please fix it we want to play the game.

Bought the game and right from the start screen huge bug. The game screen goes portrait mode no matter what and half the screen is black making the game completely unplayable. Ipad mini.

Can’t play screen not showing):

The screen stays in a position that only allows players to see half the game….. Cant play at all like this…. Please fix asap :/

At first it was going great in iPad until a recent update. The game used to be in landscape screen now it became vertical? We can’t see most of the controls!! Please fix.

This games cool, but make it to where we can play it. The game doesn’t fit our screen, (it’s as if we tilt it upwards and it’s stuck there, and we can’t access all the buttons,) and yes we do have the IPhone 5!

We love this game but we havent been able to play it cause once we open it it switches to portrait and we cant see the fire or jump button on our ipad mini we would really like for this to be fixed we really want to start playing this.

The scren is stuck horizontaly and we cant play u guys need to fix this -.-

We just bought this and the display will not go horizontal. We can’t see any button but the one that throws grenades. What to do???

Every time we try to play the app it doesn’t go to full screen and only half of the game is visible we can’t use the screen to play or anything cuz it doesn’t show the buttons on the screen to play! Can u please fix it?

Our screen don’t rotate in our iPhone 5 and we can’t play, please help.

This game dosen’t open on our iPad Air, we deleted the app several times and it won’t open and when it does, only appears half of it.

Doesn’t even show whole game on the screen making it impossible to play. Pleasseeeee fix!!

First of all we loved metal slug 3 as it was our favorite game and we bought it on our ipad2 but like the screen is off to the side and half on. PLEASE FIX!!!!!

Unplayable on iPhone 5. Will not go into landscape mode at all. Great on the iPad though.

When we start up the app it turns side ways and we can only see from the left to the granade button this problem needs to be fixed we have an ipod 5g touch.

The game runs but wen we try to play it doesn’t go into landscape view and plays while we’re holding it portrait but can’t see the controls.

Just wasted our money on an app that hasnt worked properly since september 2013. It frustrates us that the developers are continuing to knowingly sell a broken product. They obviously do not care about their customers. Will never again by an SNK ios port.
