    In these days of games full of extravagant cut-scenes and labyrinthine plots, it can be refreshing to return to the good old days, when gameplay was simple, one-directional, and very, very violent. Welcome to the world of Metal Slug X, a (mostly) side-scrolling shoot-em-up that harks back to the halcyon days of 8-bit shoot-em-ups.

    Originally released for the aged Neo Geo, Metal Slug X pits you (and a friend, in co-op mode) against legions of enemy soldiers, tanks, and bizarre, death-dealing super weapons in six levels of combat carnage. You can commandeer enemy vehicles, ranging from tanks to heavily-armed camels, and there's no shortage of power-ups and special weapons to collect. You'll certainly need them, because the sheer weight of opposition numbers means you'll never get a chance to relax. If you like your games to be ruthlessly challenging, you'll be right at home with Metal Slug X.

    • Frantic shoot-em-up arcade thrills for one or two players

    • Loads of secrets, hidden areas and easter eggs to discover

    • Destroy everything you see, from enemy soldiers to background scenery
