What's New in Version 3.0
ported to the iPad
Space War Classic is SO close. . .
This game reminds me of one of my most favorite games from the era of classic arcade games. However, it is very frustrating to play because of the non-standard control layout and the lack of options such as the ability to increase, decrease and reverse the Star's gravity, and having a ship that can survive a hit, but lose maneuverability and perhaps other options as well. I would like to see the developers improve the game, and I will GLADLY pay for a better and more playable game.
This game is so close
If it weren't for the non-standard and irritating controls it would hit the mark.
It has joined a long list of retro games that miss the mark because they don't adopt the standard left/right (left hand) thrust/fire (right hand) or even the newer style d-pad.
Who puts a thrust button between the turn buttons, anyway? It's as if they don't expect anybody to ever want to thrust and turn at the same time.
So hopeful but ultimately disappointed
