In Metal Slug Defense for iPhone and Android the game sporadically tells you about a bonus world which will be playable for around 5 to 60 minutes.

After freeing every Prisoner of War (POW) in each level of one bonus world the world becomes permanent playable and will not disappear anymore.

My problem is that I am not getting new messages about the next bonus worlds (or: no new bonues worlds become playable). Is there any requirement I have to meet? I already finished World 2 (hard mode) but do not have all POWs freed by now.

Any ideas?

  • wow, some hours after writing this question I encountered the 2nd bonus world for the first time? I am not sure how this could happen. There was an update lately (I guess it has been on saturday), maybe this was the problem for me?

Bonus stage start everyday at (random) 10:00AM, 4:00PM or 6:00PM for 60min.

You can see all bonus stage throught the POW screen (3 on the first world, for normal and Hard).

You cannot see Bonus stage 2 before clearing Bonus stage 1, and Bonus stage 3 need Bonus stage 2 to be cleared.

On the second world (unlocked after clearing the hard mode of the first world), there is one bonus stage by day, all day.

  • Thank you. In fact I finally noticed it myself (I have already freed all POW). I guess I had been playing always at the wrong time lol!
