If you're doing Neo Geo games, I put my vote in for Last Resort, Magician Lord, and Nam 1975. Or the AMAZING Card Fighter's Clash.

Shock Troopers 1 & 2, Windjammers.
I'm really happy with Neo Turf Masters, though.

Also, DotEmu...you guys never fail to impress, but this is something else. The game doesn't feel like it's aged a single frickin' day thanks to the perfect touch controls. Wow!

Everyone's favorite chamber of death, doom and decomposition.

Awesome. Love anything NeoGeo, especially shooters and platformers. Magician Lord, Spinmaster, Top Hunter, Eightman etc. would be awesome as well if they made they're way to iOS...

Been waiting for this since I heard it was announced.

Fantastic game fantastic port/adaptation to touch screen.
You can now take this classic anywhere!
Thanks DotEmu for one of the best arcade golf games ever.

This is worth full price but if it goes down to 79p one day you have an absolute bargain - don't hesitate at any price point.

Some notes:
Filtering off is better looking to me.
Dip switch menu in a future update? Not sure if it's needed.
Save system seems absent in solo play modes? How is it accessed?

This is ace, brings back so many memories.... Only thing is you don't seem to be able to save mid game (unless I'm missing something) which is slightly annoying.
