While I do own the complete Franchise on Steam I`ll pass on the iOS Version. Sorry to say but at the current Price Tag I dont see any Reason why someone should buy it...

Didn't the TA preview say this had IAPs? $4.99 plus IAPs? Yeah frickin' right.

They also mention in the preview that iAP seemed to be optional, as there were currency to be found plenty of places in the game:

If iAP is optional and only useful if you're impatient, it's ok with me...

I've never played the original, so I'm gonna take a chance on this one.

Yeah, at best it'll get added to my tracking list for when it goes on sale for $.99. If it never does, I don't really care. There's so much else to play in the meantime.

I always thought his game was highly overrated at the time of initial release. Not sure what (if anything) they've added to this version, but if the gameplay remains the same I doubt it will play any better 20+ years later. First time I looked at a price of a game on iOS and actually felt like laughing out loud. IAP as well you say? Unreal.

I'm getting this, for nostalgia's sake. I agree price could be a tad lower since they have IAPs.

Aren't the graphics in the original style? It looks like they were bumped down a bit to play on iOS. Maybe the screenshots are just the original version. Still the game looks interesting. Will keep my eye on this one.

I picked this up and mixed feelings on it. I find the screen to be a little jerky at times and some on ground items stop you while others don't.

I like the theme and and controls but wish it was smoother. The iap stuff seems pretty optional.
