Customer Reviews

Wonderful compilation, almost perfect emulation.

I was initially hesitant to purchase this becase of the less than stellar reviews many people many people here have written, but I finally broke down and purchased the Irem Hits on sale at $2.99 usd. I'm glad I did! The collection of games is wonderful - the majority of them very playable, challenging and just flat out fun. The ONLY issue I have is that there is a slight skipping in the sound emulation, though to be honest it is not really that distracting.

Just to reiterate, great games and a great overall package. Even at $9.99.

Oh... and my system - a 2010 Mac Mini running 10.6.8, 4 gigs of RAM, 2.4 gig duo core and Nvidia 320M. I've never had a problem running the game!

Needs some tweaking with the graphics, but excellent otherwise

The graphics are spot-on, as well as game play and sound. I was totally blown away. My only recommendation to the manufacturer is this: in "Vigilante" you do not see the entire background in Round Two of the game. When the splash screen for the same game comes up, you get to see the title of the game but not the picture of New York City in the background. These are visible in the original arcade version. Just minor tweaks, but other than that it is a magnificent translation. Impressive! :)

Great value, joystick support needs some work

R-Type Leo alone is worth the price of admission (Irem, please release the other r-type games!) but the joystick support still needs some work. Dual shock 3 (PS3) controller works with no special setup via USB, *but* there's no way to configure the d-pad or callibrate the analog sticks, which means I am (and probably others will be) unable to get reliable directional control with an analog joystick. (Keyboard controls are surprisingly workable while we wait for better joystick support though.)
