Just bought. Love these game and watch games, excellent work by the programmer to get it so realistic. Please do more and more !

Edit - Just bought it, its a great trip down memory lane to the early 80's when i used to have these Game and watch handhelds

Doubt if the programmer will change it - But PLEASE hide the Ipod strip to the side so the games real full screen. Apart from that its an excellent copy of the original G&W. Sure youngsters wont appreciate this game much but to us oldies, back in the day these games were brilliant, very very basic but thats all we had before computers arrived !

Game Impressions

Caved in and bought it.

Timing is more accurate than Old Octopus (long since removed) and it looks great, but the buttons aren't as responsive as they should be and you can't grab more than one bit of treasure at a time!

So while the game looks and sounds quite authentic, the game is seriously flawed, which is too bad as this is otherwise a nice Octopus clone.

Oh yeah, no screen flip for iPhone users and the time stays on the screen, but that's not as big of a deal.
