More than I bargained for
I initially bought this game when I saw the price point and that (by the first screenshot) it contained at least 4 games. This app contains over 20 first off. They run as close to exactly as my aging mind remembers them although I did notice some audio differences (not bad ones) between these versions and their console versions. The default control scheme didn’t work for me at all but it was probably the closesest to an arcade orientation as you’ll get on a keyboard. I found to my excitement that the controls could be changed both universally and by title. I would stress to the developer though that the controls desplay screens appear as though you should be able to interact with them directly. I was nearly discouraged until I found the options menu. After that it was no issue. I don’t often review apps, but I was particularly impressed. Runs fine on new OS!
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! :)
