No true ipad support =(

This was my favorite Genesis game as a kid and one I got a the launch of the system. I would love to see it with a higher resolution for ipads. It works well though but is missing some important parts of the game like beginner mode and I think part of the game is also cut out. Oh well it's cool for 99 cents i guess. If everything was here this would be a 5 star game. The actual full game is by far a 5 star game to me! I have it on everything i can get it for! I even have the original cart and the six pack that came with it on there.

Faithful port but very hard.

This game looks and plays fantastic. Great port. People complain about the controls but the issue is it's hard. It was hard in the arcade it was hard on the genesis it's now hard on iOS. If your looking for a challenging beatem up then take a look at golden axe. If you remember it from your youth it is every bit as good and as hard as you remember.

One complaint:

It is very hard to do the special attack, because it requires pressing jump and attack at the same time and that is hard on a touch screen.
