The Emulated Amiga game is half off. I would get it except I hear the load times are pretty bad.

Thanks. I still love It Came from the Desert and hope that comes to iOS.

tested both games... they seem exact clones of the original amiga game, gameplay uses touch or virtual pad. comes with the classic SLOW loading screens as the originals had

so if you've never played them before or not a fan then I'd suggest try to find an old copy to test play or skip it. i'm a fan and would the whole collection...so hoping for "it came from desert + sinbad + wings"

Thanks for the impressions. Also, has Defender been pulled from the App Store? I haven't been able to find it.

I've also seen a much prettier version of rocket ranger floating around; I can't image that'd be the Atari ST port and I know it's not the NES port. Was there a second Amiga version? ...and why did iPad get the graphically inferior version?



The world map and laser effects are both very different? How strange... and I've seen screens of the better version with iOS the on-screen controls but the App Stores shots don't look to be from that version?

*Nevermind, I guess the graphics are all from the same version.
