Need to make HD versions of all their games.

Wish they'd add BT control support (iCade, iControlpad) but they probably won't. *sigh*

Also hoping they port their games to PS Vita as PSN download games. Hopefully for prices that are in line with iOS HD game pricing.

I wonder if this is truly hd, or is it just blown up to the big screen. Guess we will find out soon.

Played one game and love it.
Only played Deathsmiles and Bug Panic in 2xMode on iPad 2 before, but this HD version looks awesome and controlls great.
Now im longing for more ports

Yup just got the lite, seems everything is sharper. Background is a bit pixelated but you won't have time to be looking at that. Guess I'll be buying the arcade edition.

Edit: what's the best way to upload pics? I'll upload a pic of original version and the hd version for comparison

Noob Alert - Difference between the 3 versions? I had the lite version on the iPod, and i remember the game having a story and boss battles. Is that right or am i confusing it with some other game?
