Classic Invaders comes to iPhone/iPod Touch

Just saw this one the new games list.
Looks pretty cool, only a dollar

Anyone try this out? I would like to know how the accelerometer controls are.

The link is not working for US store.

Classic Invaders? Is that the right name or "Classic" is just an adjective you've used to express the game looking?

I'm asking that because I see the game Invaders that looks like the old one.


////Update: here is my first impression:

PROS
- Nice icon (I think this is the first time I mention such "feature")
- Standard controls (buttons) work great
- Nice graphics and sounds
- It's nice to have an old game in a new device

CONS
- You can't resume a game
- There's no high score
- Accelerometer control is not smooth

In resume, it's a nice game but the CONS kill a higher rating: 3/5

I'll probably get this game later and I'll post my first impression then.
yeah im pretty sure thats what he meant.
i bought it last night and i love it!
its exactly like the original game and the accelerometer option actually works pretty well IMO.
Although i do recommend the button controls because they seem to be more accurate.

The link isn't working in the UK store either, I think he means the game you mentioned and gave a broken link.

This game looks better than the other version of space invaders though, I might give it a go.

Sry bout the wrong link. The game that carlos linked is the one I was talking about. And yes, the word classic was to describe how it looked, not the actual title.
