Press Button C to throw a Grenade . . . Awesome Power!

I’ve been infatuated with the Metal Slug series ever since I downloaded a NeoGeo emulator and tried it out on a whim.  I used to think Contra 3 was the pinnacle of side-scrolling shoot’em-ups, but I was completely blown away.  I am a firm believer that sprite graphics make a game timelessly beautiful, and the Metal Slug series easily backs up that claim.  The amount of work that went into every detail of the animations is breathtaking.  It’s also a blast to play, and if you add a friend in the mix, it becomes 450% better.

Luckily my good friend Noah was on hand to fight off the alien forces.  He may be a little rough around the edges, but my wisdom and his courage (combined with the ultimate power that is INFINITE CONTINUES) allow us to persevere.

Has there ever been a more awesome attack than the unstoppable Zombie Vomit Bloodstream?
