It looks like a bad snes game, for $5.99 I'll stick to reruns of Karate Kid on TBS.

9 Levels??? I hope they are long levels. It looks like an interesting game but no TOFTT for me on this one.

I'm not going to TOFTT mainly because I already own this for my Pocket PC, but from what I remember it was one of those games that was okay but nothing special. I never did complete the game, but then I didn't play it all that much, either. I seem to recall having some issues with controls as well, though that will obviously be different on the iPhone. Here's a link to the Pocket PC version on ClickGamer: link. It's interesting to note that there are 15 levels in the Pocket PC / Win32 version, and it's free.

It's not that bad. It's ok, let's put it that way. It has a joystick control scheme, even though it's sidescrolling. But it works well enough. The buttons are easy to hit, and I think only once or twice have I failed to do something I wanted to do because I didn't touch the correct spot.

Aside from the controls. It's nothing special. Pretty bland story, there are medals for finishing levels a certain way, but they seem ridiculous, one is always to finish a level in a certain amount of time. now if the levels were shorter, then under a minute would be fine, but unless I charge through and don't fight or do anything else, then I don't see being able to get under a minute, when the level took 5 minutes to complete without any major exploring.

The main problem I have is the first boss fight, it's near impossible, unless you have a grenade or two of course, the guy touches you and you get hurt. I have yet to beat him. I also don't feel much driving me to want to play anymore to actually beat him.

So at this point, it's a no go in my opinion.

This game is now $5 if anyone cares. Wondering if I should get it.

I got it for free on my Pocket PC and still didn't care for it, so if I were you I'd go check out one of the "hot" items that's around $5-$6.
