Yep - and I'll still buy them all over again. It's pretty much Infinity Blade.

It's crazy for me to know that 30 years ago I was dropping quarters into this game at a breakneck pace...

I'm old.

I don't get what's new , it looks same as old app which is HD for iPad ; visuals from screenshots look the same, controls look the same, I guess it was too easy for them to make old HD app universal and pass up some additional money.

Ahhh.... Arcade machines, laser disks, bottomless coin slots. Gamers today, the third gen, would go crazy if they knew that we've paid a buck for a game, not one game.

Hi, you seemed to be lost on the Internets.
This is TouchArcade, where 2$ for a game is too much, 5$ is an outrage, and 10$ or more is putting sugar in their car tanks whilst killing puppies.

It's actually seventh generation of gaming devices according to GameFAQ.
But I know the feeling, played Metal Slug, Raiden and many other arcade/ simulation machines as a kid
