Mesal Gear Solid: Snake Escape

Mesal Gear Solid: Snake Escape, also known simply as Mesal Gear Solid, is a minigame featured in the 2005 PlayStation 2 game Ape Escape 3 that serves as a crossover with the Metal Gear series. It is a counterpart to the Snake vs. Monkey minigame featured in the PS2 versions of Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater and Metal Gear Solid 3: Subsistence. The word “Mesal” in the title is a portmanteau of “Metal” and “Saru”, the Japanese word for monkey and a reference to Ape Escape's Japanese title of Saru! Get You! (サルゲッチュ?). The minigame is unlocked by completing the main campaign once and then purchasing it from the hobby shop for 573 coins.

Mesal Gear Solid runs on the modified version of the main Ape Escape 3 engine that implements traditional elements from the Metal Gear series, such as multiple alert phases, clinging to walls, hanging onto ledges, and first-person shooting. The player controls Pipo Snake, a simian covert-ops agent who has been tasked to help out Solid Snake in thwarting a group of guerrilla apes who have hijacked the latest model of Mesal Gear (a simian version of Metal Gear).
