Can we all agree that Metal Slug has some of the best pixel art of all time?
The Metal Slug team is absolutely ****ing crazy
No one said “hey, we need you guys to create like a dozen giant intricately-animated bosses at a totally ridiculous resolution”
THE LIGHTING CHANGES WHEN THE CANNON GOES OFF AND EVERYTHING
THE PLAYER CHARACTERS ALL HAVE LITTLE RELOAD ANIMATIONS IN A GAME WHERE YOU NEVER ACTUALLY HAVE TO STOP SHOOTING
AND JUST IMAGINE THE THOUGHTS THAT WENT THROUGH THEIR HEAD WHEN THEY MADE THESE
BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL ROBOTS AND PIXEL ART I NEED TO PLAY THIS WHAT SYSTEM IS IT FOR
A re-released anthology is available on the WII, PSP, and PS2. None of the art was changed for the re-release. Otherwise, the originals look like they’re available on every major console since the Sega Saturn.
In case anyone had forgotten how awesome Metal Slug is.
Also I’ve always thought the tank crab (forget its name) is cute. c:
Metal Slug has always been everything I love about videogames. Addictive gameplay, beautiful art, and that touch of absurd, over-the-top epicness.Source: gamefanatics
