Alright as you asked i'll do it now!

Cool, at the beginning you can select modern graphics or retro, has to be retro ! (You can change this in the menu later if you want)

Well i'm enjoying it, the buttons arent too bad at all. Only problem is if you're in the bottom left/right hand corner your fingers are hiding whats there as theyre on the buttons so you have to take them off quickly to check.

The retro version seems just as it used to be, controls as i say arent 'too bad', managed to play about 5 screens so its not unplayable or anything and they do the job.

Very happy you can choose the retro graphics (didnt realise from the screenshots). Normally games like this are 69p but for the sake of a pound or so extra its not bad at all. Nice surprise, good to have this retro classic.

Didn't know it was out before. Doesn't your iTunes back up all the apps?

yeah, i've always backed up, but i don't understand why the same game again... actually the only thing i see it's a official remake, with the proper name and no more changes.

wow, guess I missed this being released. I spent so many hours and hours on my atari playing this game in the 80s. Downloading now.

Hopefully the gameplay is good enough to relive some 80s nostalgia.
