The iPad version in an excellent "recreation" of the original. According to the developer, it's not based on an emulator, but coded from the ground up. Surprisingly, the powers that be have not sent him a cease and desist letter yet.

Warning to the younger gamers -- this is hard as nails, just like the original.

Pulled already? Drat!

At least I'm getting the "item is no longer available" message when trying to buy on the Canadian app store.

I just tried on both US and Can. The link is still there, but when you try to purchase you get the "no longer availabe.. availability has changed" message.

Was able to purchase it on iTunes, but when I tried to repurchase on my iPhone (instead of syncing) I got the same message. Guess someone finally noticed...

@LordVader: this is probably moot, now, but the game sounded and played exactly like the original, except that the dev increased the player speed a bit to make it easier.
