As Metal Slug 3, I can confirm it does support iCade.
And for non-iCade users, it has a relative touch mode (taking into account original speed ships).

Absolutely instabuy, and I am thrilled to see SNK are starting to release NeoGeo games outside of the more obvious KoF/Metal Slug franchises, too. Please SNK, continue putting out more and more titles, especially at this price point!

Same as Metal Slug 3 for graphics, you can choose between :
- pixel mode / linear filtering
- no scanlines / scanlines at 50% / scanlines at 100%.
- aspect ratio 16:9 / 4:3 (for iPhone, since iPad is 4:3)

So yeah, it's as good as it can be
