Metal Slug 2 (Neo Geo)
|Metal Slug 2: Super Vehicle-001/II|
This game has a bugs page
The second Metal Slug game. Buggy enough to have the bugfix released as a separate game, Metal Slug X.
Add unused sprites from here.

To access the debug mode, open the game in Console Mode and set debug developer mode On at the Neo Geo boot up screen: this can be done via the Kawaks emulator, the Nebula emulator or using the Neo Geo UniBios.
Enter the game, and press COIN up twice during gameplay: after pausing, the debug menu will appear - with options to activate the debug dipswitches (which can be activated separately through other options using Kawaks) and even the ability to play on any regular level, and even some test levels not available in the actual game. There is also a Sound Test screen and Color Test screen.

- ＴＥＳＴ１ ｆｏｒ ＡＮＤＹ ＴＨＥ ＷＩＺＡＲＤ contains is the final area of Mission 6, with a Metal Slug, an Armour Piercer, a Shotgun, a Rocket Launcher, a Flame Shot, a Laser Gun, and a single soldier there.
- ＴＥＳＴ２ ｆｏｒ ＹＡＭＡＤＡ is the beginning of Mission 4, with a Slug Flyer, three aliens and Rumi Aikawa there. A little further ahead are five prisoners who all give you Rocket Launchers, but strangely, after you pass the first building, everything explodes, and it acts as if you completed a mission.
- ＴＥＳＴ３ ｆｏｒ ＹＯＫＯ－ＳＨＵ allows you to play around in the ending credits! If you hold down the jump, fire, or grenade button, the credits speed up.
- ＴＥＳＴ４ ｆｏｒ ハマチャン ＹＥＨ (Hama-chan YEH) appears to be exactly the same as Mission 5, except it claims to be Mission 1, you walk in instead of parachuting in and after beating the boss, it will act like having completed the game.
- ＴＥＳＴ５ ｆｏｒ ＫＯＮＤＯＵ is an entirely empty version of Mission 1, with no background, oddly placed and missing pieces of the foreground, and other errors.
- ＴＥＳＴ６ ｆｏｒ ＴＡＫＡＤＡ is also Mission 1, but this has a background and is entirely empty, other than Rumi Aikawa and a red helicopter appearing right at the start, and later on there’s an invincible truck carrying a Metal Slug.
- ＴＥＳＴ７ ｆｏｒ ＮＡＫＡＴＵＫＡ is simply an empty version of the final part of Mission 6, but claims to be Mission 1.
- ＴＥＳＴ８ ｆｏｒ ＴＡＧＵＣＨＩ is simply an empty Mission 3, other than a few planes you fight at the beginning.
