Imho the best iOS fighting game, despite that it doesn't have multiplayer. I bought this for 5 bucks and it was worth every penny. $2.99? One of the best holiday deals you can get in the AppStore.

Favorites: The Quest Gold + expansions, Mission Europa Collectors Edition, Ascension, Jet Car Stunts 2, Junk Jack X, King of Dragon Pass, Kingturn series, Mecho Wars HD, Mini Dash, Mos Speedrun, Ravenmark, Sonic series, Fall of Angels, Highborn, Solomonís Keep / Boneyard, pixel art games, remakes and ports of classic games.

Not sure if I want to get this. I'd grab it, but I already have Street Fighter...

The best fighter in the appstore (along with SFIV, of course)

Waiting for Soul Calibur (January 2012?) and Office Revenge...

Until January 5th, as the app description actually said (usually it says 'for a limited time only')

I don't want a signature.

Oh, thanks for pointing that out. I didn't even catch that; like you said, I just assumed it would say 'for a limited time'

This is definitely the best fighter on the AppStore. If it had online multiplayer, it would beat SFIV by a mile. Bluetooth/local multiplayer is still fun though. If you like fighters, definitely pick this up for the price.

If it had online multiplayer, I'd say that it beats SFIV:V by half a mile. Anyways, yeah, it's pretty good. I remember getting it at $5 because I was sort of skeptical. However, it messed up all of my SFIV:V skills. :/ Fun, regardless.

Just bought this and WOW. I saw, I saw, your face. And WOW!

Anywho, I really hope animated backgrounds somehow see the light of the day with this game. It's already gorgeous, so I can only imagine.

So many play options and characters to choose from. The animations are astounding.
