If you haven't played KOF, 97, then get this one instead. Cool looking icon, slightly better graphics, more characters, controls are responsive, and its pretty fast paced. The only issue I have is with the controller customization. It is hard moving the buttons around the screen because of the boxes the buttons are in. I wish there were an option to delete certain buttons you don't want to use to enable more freedom to place the buttons you want anywhere rather than just places restricted by the button boxes. Also the directional pad is very limited as well as in moving it around to your liking. Other than that, its definitely a must have for the Itouch. Full screen option. If only they would do that to the more recent KOF app.

Awesome still but I have encountered a bug. When I went to play KoF, my button layout disappeared. I couldn't move my character.

3-Star Rating for now because...

1. The Bluetooth multiplayer won't connect.
All DoTEMU SNK games with "Bluetooth multiplayer feature" do not work.... And they do not update or fix this problem.

2. The Achievement, the one which you should get after playing with all of the characters... Is broken. I've played with all of the characters but I still haven't gotten it.

3. The controls is problematic and pathetic at times, and it's unfair that certain characters' SP moves are very few in comparison to others.

I honestly believe that SNK should find another company who will port their classic arcade games on the iOS or on other mobile platforms because DotEMU is not reliable.

A couple of good things that I can say about this game is that it's my favorite KOF game and that you can really adjust the difficulty (like make it easy) unlike KOF97 and Samurai Shodown II (which I will not recommend anyone to buy because it's unenjoyable to play).

Could not ask for more

I was not expecting to like the touch controls as much as I did. This is the first fighting game on a mobile device I have enjoyed. Very thought out port, you can tell dot emu put a lot of time into it and it paid off. Worth every penny at $3.99 considering that would only get you 8 plays in an arcade (if your lucky). Get it, you won't be sorry.
