MGST+New Update=Some new additions to 1st version?

I am finally re-playing Metal Gear Solid Touch with the added update and I just found out that the update slipped in some much needed difficulty to the levels of the previous release.

I started playing it from the beginning all over so that I can get used to the game again and when I fought the Laughing Octopus I immediately noticed that she now shoots 2-4 bombs at you before she appears and you have to shoot at them to blow them up before they explode in front of you catsing substantial damage. The bombs are a bit tricky because the are on opposite sides of the screen and the move awkwardly towards you so you definitely need a steady hand to shoot them. I love this since it made defeating her a bit harder

I just got past her so I'm going to continue on and see if there are any more additives to the early levels before I tackle on the 8 new ones. Anyone else found anything new as well?

this game still looks lame.

I am General Zod. Your ruler. Yes, today begins a new order. Your lands, your possessions, your very lives, will gladly be given in tribute to me, General Zod! In return for your obedience you will enjoy my generous protection and you will be allowed to live.

Well, being the "true-neutral" person I am, I'm indifferent.

So much sulking...

If you guys wanted MGS4 gameplay, buy a PS3.

The fact is, even in it's simple form, Metal Gear Solid Touch has better graphics, gameplay and polish than 90% of the App Store.

I'll stick to the other 10 percent

I don't understand why MGST catches so much flak.

Yes it's not the espisnoge we are used to from the series,

But it's the best gallery shooter, and has the best control scheme out of the lot of them.

Scope is on the fly responsive.

Everyone always suggests to gallery shooting devs to use MGST controls, but these are the same people that say it's not an up to par MGS game.

MGST on iPhone is a gallery shooter, and the best one at that.

What is really complain-able about the game other than the price?
