The Metal Slug Advance wiki last edited by StarFoxA on 05/16/13 10:54PM View full history

Metal Slug Advance plays almost identical to every entry in the MS series. It's a side-scrolling, arcade style 2D action game with a heavy emphasis on non-stop action. Players quite literally run through levels, shooting everything in sight. Powerups can be attained usually through rescuing captive soldiers or killing some enemies. 


 Players run and gun mostly and have a pistol with infinite ammo as a default weapon. There are various weapon pickups to be found such as Rocket Launchers, Heavy Machine Guns, Shotguns, and a few other surprises. Grenades can also be thrown. There is also some vehicle gameplay to be had as characters step into various Metal Slugs, The Slug Gunner and The Slug Flyer.


Players have the choice to play as either Walter Ryan or Tyra Elson.
