Just bought this. Can't think of the game it's similar to

It's great. Like having the original game in your hand

Dr. Mario I think

I see only one button. Does that mean you can only rotate blocks one direction?

Apple published it in under a week, not sure if it will last long in the store however. Was more of challenge to see if if it could be possible to do in gamesalad. I always liked the original with no added flashy graphics or gimmicks added.

Please please please try and do a 'Grandstand' LCD type recreation.

Gutted theres nothing like that in the app store, you know the early 80's Grandstand handheld type games before home computers arrived !

Really impressed by both Gameboy games though

Tap UP on D-pad to rotate in opposite direction.

Do you mean games like the Car games where you have a back image of a race track with LCD cars that would flash up and you had to dodge them, your car would only have 3 possible positions of left, middle & right.

These types of games....

So yeah similar to the ones you're describing. Before everyone started buying an Atari VCS (or 8 bit computer) these old tabletop games were superb. Had a good feature in Retro Gamer recently, surprised there arent any recreations in the app store (I've found a fair few, SIMON recreated, Pocketeers recreated and other old toys, just no old LCD tabletop style games)

RG was a nice article. AppStore has plenty of handheld LCD games but none of the larger tabletop. Like the Knight Rider theme used at the start of Firefox in the video above.

Please tell me that you are kidding? By buying Clones like that you not only are supporting the Developer that should get sued by the current Copyright Holder of Teris/Dr. Mario but also sending a Signal out that those kind of Clones have a Market on the Appstore.

I strongly recommend everyone out there to vote with their Wallet and don`t buy any Game that isn`t Official to make sure that those kind of Developer don`t even start to believe that they could earn that easily a $.

Still shocking that this crap is even getting featured on the Forum while at the same time we are trying to make sure that a Company like Zynga stops cloning other Developers by picking up their Concepts.
