It was one sale for $3.99 from March 29, 2013 until April 4, 2013. It's very rare but Tecmo occassionally discounts their apps (in 8-Bit Treasures case, once in 3.5 years).

Have it, but completely forgot. Thanks for reminding me. Rogue Ninja is a good recommendation to anyone who wants a game of a similar style but finds the intro price of Isle of 8-Bit Treasures a bit daunting. Plus, Rogue Ninja is Universal.

So the question is... Is it even worth it? Does it even work on modern hardware and OS?

Hi, you seemed to be lost on the Internets.
This is TouchArcade, where 2$ for a game is too much, 5$ is an outrage, and 10$ or more is putting sugar in their car tanks whilst killing puppies.
