Default New tabletop emulation coming soon (Scramble Astro Command)

Hello. Just a quick message to say after many late nights of perfecting, Scramble Astro Command is now finally finished and awaiting release for Iphone and iPad.
This has had the same attention to detail as Galaxy Invader 1000, Astro Wars and Frogger. I personally think its more advanced than Astro Wars. It was named "Scramble" by Grandstand and "Astro Command" by Epoch and Radio Shack (and some others). This was one of the most popular tabletop VFD games of the 80's.
All the sounds, realistic simulation of the VFD (Vacumm Fluorescent Display) and all the gameplay have been interrogated and accurately reproduced. Some parts were changed slightly, for example a simple cursor control instead of joystick for ease of play. I am sure the purists might find some minor differences (like me) but I would say its almost perfect. It has been play-tested and compared by eye alongside the real device over and over again.
From past feedback there is also the addition of a full screen mode when device is rotated. This is more use for phones. As always iCade is supported just like all BeatsnBobs's other retro game emulations.
Anyway, if your are interested, this is out within the next week if all goes well.
