Mini Metal Slug is now available on Aminet for classic Commodore Amiga computers with AmigaOS 3.0! The Mini Metal Slug Project : It’s a tribute to the Metal Slug Serie from Clément CORDE. It is a game composed of 3 Missions (each mission divided into a number of levels). The first mission is similar to the serie, then it forks and offers some refreshing gameplay. The original game is widely known for its sense of humor, fluid hand-drawn animation, and fast paced two-player action. The player(s) must shoot constantly at a continual stream of enemies in order to reach the end of each level. At this point, the player confronts a boss, who is usually considerably larger and tougher than regular enemies. On the way through each level, the player can find numerous weapon upgrades and “Metal Slug” tanks. During the course of a level, the player also encounters POWs, who, if freed, offer the player bonuses in the form of random items or weapons. At the end of each level, the player receives a scoring bonus based on the number of freed POWs. If the player dies before the end of the level, the tally of freed POWs reverts to zero. A 040 or Vampire is most desirable for playing Mini Metal Slug.
