Hmmmm I've never bought a game for my Ipod touch. Definitely interested in the first three, can anyone recommend them?

Mega Man II should be a automatic buy.

I wonder if they will put SFIV at a reasonable price... say 4.99?

Interesting. Wonder how these hold up on an iPad.

I bought MM2 a while back for $0.99. it is odd playing it without buttons.
there are two modes, a slower mode and a mode that plays at the speed of the original.
haven't invested the time to beat it, but i am not looking forward to wily 4 and limited crash bombs...
i think there is a demo of Woodman's level, so check it out.
if it makes a difference, I am playing on a iPhone 3G.

Actually I read the control is terrible for Mega Man and stay far away.

controls work well enough, it just takes getting used to.
pretend you are playing MM2 on an NES controller, but the screen is in the middle of the control.
the slow mode makes up for control troubles, since it slows down everything's movement.
you can also play portrait style, which feels like playing mega man on an old school gameboy. I like landscape style better because the "dpad" and "buttons" are farther apart.
like I said, there is a MM2 Lite, so check that out before you buy the full version.

Thanks OP, picked up Dark Void Zero.

Anyone else got an opinion on MM2?
I loved the Gameboy version, I think it's the only MM game I've ever finished.

I'll be in for dark void zero since it seems to be the only version of the game that doesn't have annoying DRM.

I have MM2 and I can say the controls take some getting used to and can be really difficult on jumping stages, so much so that I stopped trying to play it.

Heads up to everyone, Phoenix Wright is 2.99 and includes all 5 of the original GBA games. IMO Phoenix Wright is about the most innovative handheld game I played while owning a DS, I loved those games.

I have to recommend both Dark Void and Mega Man. Mega Man's controls are a little weird to get used to at first but once you figure them out it is a good game. Dark Void on the other hand controls very well and is very fun to play. Plus they are only 99 cents a piece....What else you gonna do with 2 bucks? Buy a burger and fries off the dollar menu and eat them while you cry and regret not purchasing these two games instead?

Do you mean 5 CASES, not 5 games? There weren't 5 games.

Bought Dark Void and Phoenix Wright, my first PW game sadly. Can't wait to try it.

Money comes and goes, but deals don't last forever ;)


If anime was mainstream, would it be as satisfying?

I bough MM2 a while ago for $0.99. I agree the controls take some getting used to but it is still fun to play. I'd say it is worth $0.99 although I'd still rather play it on NES

Dark Void Zero
Phoenix Wright
1942
Mega Man II

You mean DS games... and what?

If you purchase PW you also get Apollo, et al? You must be confused and/or mean something else.

He was right about the GBA thing, they WERE originally GBA games. But he had to have meant cases, not games.

Degeneration or whatever it's called is pretty good. Not as good as like 1-4, but it does actually feel like a real game and controls okay.

Of course it makes me want a PSP Resident Evil even more...

I bought it on my iPhone yesterday. It's the same as the first Phoenix Wright on the NDS, which I beat years ago. From the screen shots, I didn't recognized any familiar shots, so I thought it's a new iPhone only game. It's not. It is the same 5 cases as in the first game on the NDS.

Not regretting my purchase though. I'm going to play through them all again!:bouncy:

$3 to rent the first Phoenix Wright isn't a bad price at all, and I'd guess it actually controls decently with a touch screen (though I'd still prefer real controls, if price isn't an issue).

I managed to complete it, which is a rarity with point and click style games.

I retract my last statement, the controls are indeed atrocious and you should run away. Buy the MM Collection on XBOX or GC instead
