Metal Slug 6

Metal Slug 6 is both a departure and a return of sorts for the series. Whereas Metal Slug 4 dealt with technological and cybernetic themes and Metal Slug 5 possessed a paranormal motif, Metal Slug 6 returns to the RebelMartian alliance featured in Metal Slugs 2, X, and 3, but on a much broader scale. Rather than repeating the previous games events of the Martians breaking the alliance and the Rebels assisting the player in turn, the player now teams up with the Rebels and Martians to combat an even greater threat.Utilizing the power of the Atomiswave platform, SNK Playmore has added graphical effects like shadow and camera zoom, as well as some cleaning up and animation addition to some sprites. In addition to this visual update, the sounds of the announcer, soldiers and hostages have been redone, and new sound effects and music are also present.
