Critics praised TMNT: Shredder’s Revenge when it came out for modern consoles and PC last year. A new installment in the storied tradition of Ninja Turtle beat-em-ups, it retained the spirit of 90s arcade action while updating it to feel fresh again. Now publisher Dotemu and developer Tribute Games say they’re giving us more, which is fine with us.
When people see the name Metal Slug, they know what to expect: a fast-paced run-and-gun shooter with lots of tanks, artillery and explosions rendered in cartoony pixel art. But a new Slug from publisher Dotemu and developer Leikir Studio promises to flip the conventional experience on its head. In this new game, you don’t rush in blazing. You plan every move carefully. The Metal Slug characters are moving into the realm of strategy in Metal Slug Tactics.
