Metal Slug Advance
|Metal Slug Advance|
Document additional unused content from here.
Metal Slug Advance is basically a severely watered down port of a Metal Slug game.
There's a lot of unused animations for the player characters, mostly the likes of reloading and idle animations that would have been used for flavor.
Get more of them and document them.
A fair few remnants of the scrapped underwater stage remain, like the Slug Mariner, squids, floating mines, and perhaps more.
Same thing, rip them and write about them
Another leftover from the underwater level, this time it's a squid from Metal Slug 5. It has all the animations, including exploding in a gory fashion.
Debug Mode Leftovers
There's a few textual remains of a debug mode, most of it nigh-identical to that of the arcade games, as well as the numerical listings of a stage select. Mission 3 has ten areas (only seven are seen in gameplay, including a cutscene) and Mission 4 has seven, meaning two areas aren't accessed.
In every version, at 0x797B0, is text for what looks to be a country selection, yet remains unused.

The title screen in the Japanese version has the katakana text "メタルスラッグ アドバンス", which means "Metal Slug Advance".
