Metal Slug X ROM Download for Neo Geo 


Metal Slug X, released in the year 1999, is a run and gun video game in the series of Metal Slug. SNK developed the game, and D4 Enterprise published it for Neo Geo. The game is also an upgraded version of Metal Slug 2, which utilizes the engine of the game from Metal Slug 3. Some of the new features added in the version include Enemy Chaser, Metal Slug Type-R, Iron Lizard, Drop Shot, Big Weapons, Super Grenade, and Stones. 




As the game is a remake of an older version, it has made few new changes in the gameplay, which include more items, power-ups, prisoners, and food, which are mostly hidden, and the player must be shot to get them. The action in the game is rarer, with many environmental factors doing things such as blasting with surprising events or randomly spitting out enemies or items. Moreover, now the players can become fat right after completing every stage after Mission 2. Instead of being just night or day time in the game, now the players can choose and play various stages at sunset, twilight, and dusk. All the levels in the game have different and increased enemies, along with other bosses in Mission 1.

So, with the help of different equipment, the player can save more hostages according to the choice they made.
