Inspector Gadget - Namco

[App Store Link, $4.99]

Who is going to tell me what they know about this game? TOFTT anyone? I loved IG back in the day.

Help the bionic detective defeat Dr. Claw using a variety of gizmos and gadgets in the official game of the hit cartoon series. Progress through the game and play as Inspector Gadget, Penny and their faithful dog Brain as you travel across multiple locations. Use a variety of transportation along the way including the Gadgetmobile and Gadget 'Copter! Find the royal jewels and uncover the mystery as the Chief sends Gadget on a rollercoaster platform ride. Fans of the cartoon will not be disappointed as this game faithfully recreates the original show and platform fans will rejoice with the classic game play.

If it had a virtual d-pad instead of the controls on the sides of the screen I'd buy it instantly.

Looks kinda like a revamped gameboy color version, maybe there is a newer one. I vaguely remember even playing it.

Go Go Gadget!

I might Go Go and buy this, since I loved the cartoon back in the day.

Not sure if I trust Namco enough, based their iPhone lineup, to shell out 5 bucks for it. Hmm.

Wow nice. I was actually just watching some Inspector Gadget the other day. I'm going to pass on it for $5 until I see some solid reviews or until there's a price drop.

Man, I used to watch Inspector Gadget all of the time when I was younger. If I find the reruns I'll probably watch it now Looks like a cool old school side scroller but the controls on the screen is a bit weird. I want to check this out though once the price drops.

I don't know why but it looks familiar to the SNES version of Inspector Gadget.
