Repton "Defender type game"

Since retro is in again I thought I would mention that Repton hit the app store. Its a defender type game.
I didn't see any mention in the forums, may have missed it.
Looks like I'm the only one that has bought it so far. The game play is actually pretty good and the controls work well.

This is Repton, the classic side scrolling shoot-em up from 1982. An endless onslaught of alien ships work to construct their base on your nearly conquered colony planet. You must defend your planet until reinforcements arrive. Quick thinking and fast reflexes are needed to pilot the very well armed Repton Armageddon Ship. And with luck may just be enough to defeat the alien hordes.

Could you post a video of the game? I would like to see it....if you can't, no worries. I read your review in the app store, and I am interested.

Thanks!

I'm pretty sure retro games aren't exactly inviting you over for dinner, either.

I love 'em -- but then I was around when they were new. Not really liking this one though. It almost looks like the author equates "retro" with "MS Paint." Sorry dude, but if you're going to retro it up, you need the chunk to go with it.

The screen shots are not the best, game play is good though. Most of the new games of today have alot of flash and gameplay as an after thought or not at all.
