You're paying $3.98 for the icon, and $.01 for everything else. It looks overpriced by $.01.

Ok, now it makes sense.

Two guys walked into a bar. You think they would've seen it or something.

Unfortunately those graphics need a lot more imagination I think.

In order to make a 3GS enhanced version, I think they first need to make it look like it was made for something more sophisticated than a TI-99/4A.

Yeah, I have a lot of fond memories of scorched earth as well, and this is not doing that game justice.

The creator of the PC scorched earth must be gouging his eyes out. But seeing this thread brought back a lot of happy high-school computer lab memories...
