The DS Classic Finally Makes It To The iPhone

Now that they've fixed the screen centering bug, I'm giving this a quick review. The bottom line is that if you loved this game on the DS, you'll love it here. They do need to add the quest mode, and it would be nice if they were to give iPhone users something extra or some new modes or a new character or something. The game is old, and it's great, but I still think they could put in a little extra effort. In the end, I'm just happy to have the main Zoo Keeper game on my iPhone, so this is an easy four stars!

There are hundreds, or maybe thousands, of copies of this game on the web and in the iTunes store (someone even copies their name), but this is the original. Get it!
