Metal Slug?

I have played the 2D shooting game Metal Slug on the gameboy and really like it. Do you guys think a game like that would be possible on iPhone and iPod Touch?

9.99? That sounds a little much though.

When my old touch was jailbroken they ported it off the gameboy I think. So yea its possible, it was already made.

I would definitely pick this game up mainly because it is such a classic game.
Oh I want Chrono Trigger too but I'm not going to get too far ahead of myself.
