Atari 2600 Freeway on iPhone/iPad (Free!)

Hi,

I'm Mojtaba from Nemo Games.
We've just released Freeway (atari 2600 game remake) for iphone/ipad.
We tried to make the exact clone of this fantastic game with its marvellous atmosphere in every possible aspects of the original game (sounds, graphics, gameplay, scoring, etc.) and added few touches here and there, like adding OpenFeint for online scores.

Nice, good to see other developers are into remakes of their games when they were kids.

OMG - I have fond memories of playing this (and other 2600 games) all night when I was a kid. I'm going to download this ASAP. Pure nostalgia, of course, but this one hits a chord with me.

Ok, it's a nostalgia trip, but I'm perplexed by the leaderboards. I scored over 800 points on easy, but it says my high score is 84? Is it only counting the number of trips across? If so, why? The score is a lot more interesting then the number of trips since you lose points each time you get hit. Or maybe the leaderboards just aren't working?

Adventure was released by Peter Hirschberg (same guy who did Vector Tanks) on iphone a while ago, but it appears to have been removed - I can't find it anymore.

Heh, the cheating in the Freeway video is pretty funny.

There's already a version of Adventure on the app store, or at least there use to be. It's pretty annoying though, because it uses tilt controls, so I'd take a new one that gave us a different control scheme. Not sure what would work best.

I've tried, but I don't know why I can't correct the itunes link!

@crunc:

I'm glad that you like it. I would say about the score thing that you mentioned to the developer guy and we will correct this on next update...
