The Metal Slug franchise is one of the classics from the ’90s arcade era. The shoot-’em-up platformer games were developed and published by SNK. The player takes control of one or two players and faces off against a horde of enemies in a 2D platformer setting. They have to fight off the enemies, rescue hostages and fight against bosses to accomplish the mission.
