THIS GAME IS AMAZING

BrodyDERP

This game is one of the greatest games from when I was younger. I’ve been waiting so long for them to update it and here it is once again. It’s so great to see this game and many other classics on the App Store, definitely a game you need to try!

Great port

SebastianCueva

Game runs great on my iPhone. I love all these classics! My only suggestion would be for Shining Force to come back to the App Store. It used to be on here so it shouldn't be too difficult to release right? :) thanks! PS I won't ask for the second game since it's lengthy and may be hard to port

Gunstar Zero- play the original

Mom's Plate

Play the original. This game on a cell phone with onscreen controls is terrible (like all game that need you to have your thumbs cover 1/3rd of the screen). I was crushed by the giant broccoli! Even the previous cell release had better controls. As does the AT Games hand held Genesis (w/SD ability), or any other number of ways to play it. This game needs a real controller on a real screen. Period.
