A sorpresa, SNK Playmore ha pubblicato sugli Store Metal Slug Defense: non uno sparatutto bidimensionale a scorrimento (per quello ci sono già i porting di Metal Slug 1/2/3/X), bensì un particolare gioco di strategia che recupera alcune delle dinamiche tipiche dei tower defense.
Il titolo si dimostra solido e divertente, seppur limitato da una formula free to play non sempre ben bilanciata.
Riportiamo quanto scritto sugli store:
Update of the Wi-Fi Versus Mode.
Players are now allowed to keep playing even if the other player has already left the battle!
