Game & Watch tribute
Although it does shamelessly rip from handhelds legend Nintendo, it is the most sincerest form of flattery. This game does get LCD right. If you are a child of the eighties, you understand where this comes from; then buy without remorse! It is a very hard, yet very fun game...

I saw this game reviewed on app advice. Being a kid in the 80's growing up with these handhelds this was an instant buy for me. The game does everything right to capture the look and feel of an original handheld. I love that when you press on the game screen you get a rainbow effect like you are pressing too hard on an actual screen. The game itself is fun too. It's simple, but with game center support you are always challenging yourself to try "just one more time" to beat that previous score. It's also a universal app so I can play it on my iPad 2, and my iPhone 4 on the go. I hope the developers release another game like this. Maybe make a series. Thanks for reading!

What year is it?
I'm only 15 but I still love all types of retro games and even those little LCD games you get at McDonalds are awesome, anyway, this game is incredible the details are outstanding straight down to the distortion of the screen when touched! The game is so entertaining and believe or not, it's addicting. Don't even think about it just get it!

Amazingly Faithful!
It looks and feels like a classic LCD game. The art design and addictive gameplay are spot on. One of the beat iOS games I've played.

Overall, very fun to play and this is definitely straight out of the 80s. I only wish the screen where the actual gameplay takes place was bigger. I know the developers are trying to keep this as accurate to the LCDs as possible, but it's hard to see what's going on sometimes. Just put all the controls at the bottom and widen the screen. I don't think a more visible screen would detract from the retro-ness of this game enough to make people not like it. Please make it bigger, I really enjoy playing this game!

Retro goodness!
I love this game! What a blast from the past! If you've ever played one of these types of games in the past, you OWE it to yourself to check this out! They really paid attention to all the right details. I love that the devs even took the time to simulate the distortion that happens when you touch the "LCD". Very clever. Clearly a labor of love! Of course, the most important thing is that it's FUN! Perfect pick-up-and-play game that's also quite addictive. PLEASE make more games in this style! I will buy them all!
