What's New in Version 1.1
・SP Button commands have been adjusted
This is an excellent port of the arcade classic King of Fighters '97. Touch controls are responsive enough, presentation is great, and an overall great experience. A lot of fans just want two things. First, a training mode. The controls are very different from King of Fighters 2012, so we need a training mode to get used to the controls and practice combos. Finally, come on SNK. If your going to release this game, then you HAVE to release King of Fighters 98 for the App Store. That is the most beloved game of the franchise, and fans would almost immediately buy it. That would be awesome, but focus first on making a training mode.
Just like old times
It looks great even if it's an old game, the controls are okay, it's fun choosing a team with a larger roster of fighters but...it's still kind of hard even on the easiest mode. Sometimes the opponent would miraculously pull an all out attack just when I'm about to ko them. It's still a great game but the newer ones seem easier.
Adjust the difficulty and command moves
The difficulty on the easiest level feels like it's very hard. It's near impossible to The control stick isn't very responsive and that makes it hard to do do commands. Please re-tune these. Mainly the difficulty. Also could you add a training mode?
