Let us discuss with SNK Playmore if we can push an update with "1:1" ship speed mode, as some people here are more used too. Might take a few weeks, though.
Yeah, please add this, if you have to, add another harder difficulty setting somehow too if the game is too easy...

Anyone able to confirm the framerate / smoothness on an iPhone 4?

R-Type was converted by the same company and that doesn't quite run as smoothly as I was expecting.. and it's a much simpler game.

Used to play this a lot on a PC neo geo emulator and loved it!

EDIT: I'll download anyway.. can't resist! It's only 2 quid!

EDIT2:: Ignore the question! STUNNING work! Congrats to DotEmu, that's a brilliant conversion.

Basically what I need at this point is two things:

1) 1:1 touch-motion ratio and

2) an autofire option: make the "super" weapon work by holding it (charging) and releasing it (fire)

Otherwise the game is great as ever, but I can't see myself 1cc-ing it with the current controls, even on easy.
Please devs, consider the options above.

Don't delete it!

To place the buttons in the lower left corner in "touch" mode, you have to do this:

Go into control config
Change to pad mode (trust me)
Move the pad over to the right side of the screen
Move the buttons over to the left corner
Swap back to touch mode

The game assumes the pad is taking up that position, even in touch mode, when you are configuring controls.

I hope this improves your enjoyment of the game!

Personally, I want LAST RESORT more than any other Neo Geo game on my iPad - fingers crossed, I suppose.

[edit] - Also, if anyone wants a 1:1 movement ratio, pick one of the ships with speed maxed out (3 bars). I know that's not the perfect solution, but there's a reason the more powerful ships move slower ... they're more powerful.

DotEmu, looks like the same "video settings not saved when the app is killed from the multitask bar" bug from Metal Slug is here too.

Thanks for the private message dude. Gave it a try and ultimately because there isn't autofire, my left hand just gets way too tired mashing on the buttons. I just sat there for a while and played over and over with the default scheme and it's alright... I'll get used to it. I'm CERTAINLY not deleting this.

Ikari warriors one of my favorite games...spent so much money on it, I could finish it with one quarter.

Autofire should be very easy for them to add. I hope they do, it's not nice that you're going through physical pain to play it as it is!

Good week this week, though - this game, 'Orc: Vengeance' and 'Manos' - three very different and fun games.

Please could you answer these questions...

Can both games be icade compatible ? I heard Metal Slug is but i cant get it working, doesnt seem to be an obvious option in the game ?

Also i take it there'll be more SNK/Dotemu games coming out ? Great job so far with them, would be nice to hear some hype about them (so its not a complete surprise when they suddenly appear)

Got both of them, great stuff
Hey there - iCade works on both. Just as the game starts proper while icade is all lined up and in cabinet etc hit the home button then open metal slug or blazing star and it works a treat.
