A Win For Classic Gamers!!!!

I love the idea of having all of those classic games on my iPad. I remember begging my parents to buy me each and every one of Activision games for my Atari 2600.

However, the controls are a bit troubling. Playing games like Megamania isn't very smooth at all and the tilt controls make the ship jittery and shakes a lot and happens with a lot of games which use that style of tilt control.

I gave 4 stars for bringing the classics to my iPad but left one star off over control format and the jitteriness of the ships.

***I have to amend my previous review above. Since a person can use the iCade and play these classic games like your suppose too, gives me the ability of awarding 5 stars. Classic game play plus the iCade makes a fun play.


I can understand people on here complaining about paying for the games. However, I don't mind paying 6.99 to have all of the classics I loves as a kid in the palm of my hands. The problem with this, and why I am giving a one star review, is because it's just simply unplayable. The controls are unresponsive, and makes it impossible to play. The question I have the developers of this game is: How did this game get past quality-control? Please improve this. If the controls were anywhere near what they should be on a modern-day iOS app, this would be an awesome package for only $6.99. Until that point don't waste your time, because it will be nothing but disappointment and frustration.

Love it. More games please.

Combined with iCade, it's fantastic. I don't know about touch controls because I don't and won't use 'em...ever. Wish someone would make an iCade PADDLE for the likes of Kaboom! and such. Anyways, all the Activision favorites are here. My favorite 2600 game of all time, Dragonfire from Imagic, is here, too. If they'd add Cosmic Ark and Riddle of the Sphinx, it would be perfect. So perfect I'd pay more money. Hint, hint.
