Identical to the classic arcade game apart from 1 thing
I have to say I had forgotten how much fun this game was back in the day, and it's not lost anything through time.
This app is truly amazing and is perfect for picking up for 5 minutes to try get past the next level, only problem is it's got that "just one more go" addictive quality to it, so 5 minutes can turn into 30 minutes easily.
The only difference from the original is the you can move as fast as u like, so the speed power up doesn't really do anything, the speed power up was important in the original. However, being able to move quickly doesn't make it easier than the arcade version, reason being, you can't be as exact with the touch screen control, so you gain the speed but you lose accuracy, and it really balances out well, making the game as hard as it was before.
I would recommend playing the game on normal and not making it easy on yourself. it's the trying to complete a level with a certain amounts of lives which gives this game it's "one more go" quality.
Buy this game, it's so good!!
brilliant old school game
a brilliant old school arcade game that is as good as the real arcade, pity it can't be adapted for an option to use a bluetooth joypad to play with it Instead of using your finger which causes blind spots and confusions due to the bombs that float which causes you to lose lives, especially to those old school players who are used to playing it with controllers, it would be so awesome if you could make the adaptions, it would be nice to see the full game screen and enjoy it same time like the real legendary game, so please throw an update to use these adaption
Exactly as it used to be
Okay joystick would be ideal and can't use the virtual stick but touch screen controls are good and once used to it the memories come flooding back. Used to spend hours on this as a teenager now in my forties loving it. Great game.
