Codex Gamicus

Demon Front (traditional Chinese: 魔域戰線Template:; pinyin: Móyù Zhànxiàn) is a side-scrolling run and gun arcade game released in 2002 by IGS. It is considered by some to be a ripoff of Metal Slug for sharing similar characteristics.


The gameplay is similar to other run and gun games but with one unique feature. Each of the four characters brings along a pet, which can be sent to attack enemies or used as a shield. There are three buttons: Shoot, jump, and shield. Holding the shoot button charges your pet, and when released the pet launches a stationary devastating attack for a few seconds. The shield button converts the pet into a shield that is permanent - until you press the button again or it takes enough damage to disappear. Melee attacks and pet attacks release hearts which boost your shield power.
