App description: "If you liked the Astro Wars or Galaxy Invader conversions, you're gonna love this!"
Nominated for Game of the Week on Toucharcade.
One of the best tabletop games from the 80's. Some would say on par or better than Astro Wars.
"A must for retro game lovers!"

This is an accurate conversion from that retro vintage classic from the early 1980's brought forward to the 21st Century. Scramble by Grandstand and Astro Command by Epoch, Radio Shack and many other companies in the 80's are all the same game but in a different shell with a different name.
Every detail of the original tabletop classic has been faithfully emulated. All the sounds - that flickering vacuum fluorescent display, and all those waves of attacks - its all here! It is an almost perfect replica. We would say its 97% accurate. Some things have been altered slightly due to the nature of mobile devices. Our Astro Wars and Galaxy Invader retro emulations have been enjoyed well and this too has had the same treatment. We have also listened to feedback from past games and added zoom/landscape mode for iPhones.

Travel back to your childhood with this vintage retro arcade classic!

Also have a very odd one called Alien Chase.
This was the three I had, I love all these old LCD games though so I'm thankful for all the games you make/port.

I just got a chance to play Scramble, and it's awesome. Everything past the first wave is pretty frantic.

Love the death star look in portrait mode. The landscape mode is prefect for us "iphone only" guys tho.

I really enjoy these remakes. If that 'Alien Chase' game gets made I'm insta-buying it.

Great to hear feedback like this. It's quite a niche market so it makes it all worth it...
Someone emailed me saying they had a problem on iPad but as far as I know pad 2 and 3 work so in theory they should all work. Unless it's an iPad 1 which might be a problem. Anyone tried this with an iPad 1?

If anyone gets an odd display bug, it is now fixed. Just awaiting Apple.
Just so you know.
Have a nice weekend!

Thankyou Fujibayashi. Glad you like them.
