Anyone feeling like TOFTTing? How does it rank against Bust A Move/Puzzle Bobble or Snood?

Looks good, but it looks like you only get endless and battle modes.

Wish it included Journey mode off of Magic Drop III.

Yay!



If I had $3 in my account I'd buy it.

Of course I'm a Neo Geo freak with an MVS (and Magical Drop 3, amongst 40 or so carts) cabinet in the garage...

Closest game I've played on my iPod Touch is DynoQuest.

I'm gonna have the music from MD3 stuck in my head for a while now...

Can anyone confirm if there is music in this game, or is it silent?

Just bought it!

Excellent game, for the Magical Drop lovers... Maybe some improvements can be done in the frame rate section, and also in the gameplay (continuous side motion for example). Just miss the sexy animations
Overall a good mythical match 3

How are you guys liking the controls? This was by far my absolute favorite MAME game, and this game series alone has had me closer to building a MAME cabinet than any other game... But I'm really not digging the swipe controls.

It seems like they don't allow you to move anywhere near as quickly as you can with a joystick, and I can't do very well as the difficulty ramps up.

Either way, it seems like a fantastic port of the original, I just wish it offered some kind of virtual D-Pad or something. (Or maybe it does and I'm just blind?)

So, can anyone comment on how the framerate is on an iPod Touch 2g?

Also, how do the controls work?
