Metal Slug: Super Vehicle - 001
Description official descriptions
Metal Slug, originally released on the Neo Geo, is a side-scrolling shoot'em'up.
The player(s) takes the role of a soldier (or two) and fights a gigantic army. Every level consists of running forward blasting anything that moves, while collecting power-ups along the way (there's also a wide selection of weaponry in the game). In the end of each level the player goes up against one gigantic boss.
The PlayStation port introduces some extra features: there is a combat school where the player may fight with other players for the best time on each level and an art gallery.

Metal Slug appears in the book 1001 Video Games You Must Play Before You Die by General Editor Tony Mott.
The development team for Metal Slug had previously worked for Irem on titles like In the Hunt and Gun Force II, with many similarities in graphics and gameplay, especially Gun Force II which some fans refer to as "Metal Slug Zero".
The Metal Slug tank design is strikingly similar to the tank in the anime Dominion Tank Police.
