Yeah, yeah, yeah- great C64 classic. Awful buttondesign and a little bit buggy, but overall an amazing surprise! Playable horizontal and vertical. Can't feel any differences between the three gravitymodes.

hmm clever to remove an N in so it is now GIANA instead of GIANNA .. GIANNA SISTERS has been on the App Store for quite sometime and it also includes a retro mode so I am curious if the makers will do something about GIANA sisters

From the screenshot it looks exactly like the C64 version! What about the sound? Is it the famous soundtrack by Chris Hlsbeck?

But 248 MB!? Really?

Also curious about this. Hopefully the developer can shed some light on whether or not this is a legit port.

The original on C64 was also called Giana Sisters (by accident, but the cover had Gianna Sisters on it).
But that's a different story...

A German classic. Stolen by an obvious prick. Shameful!!!

I will never understand that Apple just greenlight games based on stolen licenses... But they care about boobs.... A shame.
