App description: Be sure to check out the all-new Mega Man X now available in the App Store.

Mega Man® is back and better than ever in this updated version of the legendary platformer. For the hardcore Mega Man fan, the new Classic Mode allows you to experience the game in its original incarnation with all the enemies, movement and action you remember.

More casual players can toggle off Classic Mode and enjoy a rebalanced gameplay experience with more forgiving controls, scaled-down enemies and an auto-fire option.

Both modes can now be played in landscape mode in addition to the portrait mode that was available in the original release.
* Utilize top-down virtual game controls in either portrait or landscape.
* New Classic Mode for hardcore Mega Man fans.
* Battle your way through 14 levels, and conquer 8 Robot Masters, each with a unique weapon!
* Bringing the original classic NES game to the palm of your hand!

Ok so I went through the first level Flash Man and gotta say it brings back some great memories of playing this on the old nes back in the day. The virtual joystick works but will take some time to get used to. The screen is a little condensed but is not terrible and looks like it was ported from a mobile phone to the iphone/touch. The game overall is really fun so far and looking forward to going through this game. I can recommend this game if you want some retro action.

hrrrmmmm....never really got into the megaman series until the X games. I think it's cool that they are finally realizing this is a place to release games.

Awesome to see Capcom some more! Not a huge fan of the genre but I might grab it for nostalgia's sake...

I just read that they rebalanced the game for iPhone users, the game would seriously be too hardcore for a touchscreen handheald otherwise

I hope that rebalanced gameplay thing is not a made easy for casual phone gamers. An easy option is better and a hard for normal game
