    Metal Slug 3 is the killer app for Bluetooth joysticks like the iCade, but even without physical controls, it's practically flawless.

    Metal Slug 3 for iOS is a great porting and touch controls are implemented very well. Price and credits could have been better, but if you're looking for a great "run & gun shooter" for your iOS device, Metal Slug 3 is the right answer.

    Metal Slug 3 offers high levels of action-packed 2D glory from the Neo Geo age. A must have for newcomers.

    The virtual joystick and buttons can be a bit unresponsive and sluggish at times, but they work well enough to allow players to enjoy the game.

    Big, bad and explosively mad.

    An intense blast of hardcore shoot 'em up action packed full of delightful touches. The only problem with Metal Slug 3 on iOS is that it obviously wasn't designed with touch controls in mind.

    METAL SLUG 3 is an admirable attempt at bringing SNK's (at the time) swan-song title for the series back to life; the controls don't quite live up to the original Arcade sticks, but it's a small price to pay if you love the series.
