A Historical Novelty
It's about as simple as games get. It's probably more of a novelty purchase for game historians and the like. It's kinda fun, a decent time waster. It works. It's got a pretty neat history, and a bit of a humorous premise. It's definitely not for everyone, but if you thought, say, akalabeth world of doom was cool, or any of the other unflinchingly primitive iOS ports out there, you'll probably want to spend a buck on this one. See the beginnings of Bill Gates.
Fun old game. Love the classic.
Controls could use an arrow or button at the bottom of the screen or a simple guide. Not intuitive but easily figured out with a little trial and error. Overall good job!
Shame on You!
I feel like I just wasted $.99. How does one "play" this game? App Support leads to Facebook! I've even searched Google for help. Does XVision specialize in humiliating it's customers? I realize that I'm not supposed to clutter up comments with support issues, but there is no support! How did this get by the Apple police?
