I think we've all lost our minds when we think $7 for a classic game is expensive when many of us are 18+ and earn money or have decent pocket money !

$7 is still incredibly cheap, again the problem is we expect everything now for 99c or free.
Well said! No wonder most big game deves don't take iOS seriously.
Anyway, this will be an instabuy from me

Happy days. Now SNK could you bring Capcom v SNK Card Fighters to the appstore please? Hope this Metal Slug is better than that crap they released last time

I don't even really look at the price of apps in the app store. lol...but I think the fact that people are lapping up really old games given a 2nd or 3rd life on a new powerful platform is probably why big game devs don't develop much ios exclusives. Nostalgia really sells ...why bother making new games when selling ports of old games yield high profit/effort and time ratios. Which is fine..after all some old games really bring back good memories. My point is, buy it if nostalgia compels you to but don't righteously talk down to those who are unwilling to fork out cash for it!

Awesome... As for price, I won't be complaining. I used to buy Metal Slug games when they were new at $300 a pop for the Neo Geo AES home system. So $6.99 for the same game in my hands is a no brainer...

7 bucks won't be a high price at all with a legendary like this ;-)
