GIFs Of Metal Slug’s Perfect, Intricate Pixel Art

Just look at these. Ah! Mwah! (Kissing noises, copious drooling.) The shading is so perfectly done and the images are so dynamic, appearing to breathe and pulsate in even the smallest parts of the design. And who doesn’t get a thrill from robot crabs, reanimated brain robots, and giant, tamed eel monsters? Metal Slug: you were one of the best, babe.
