AWESOME but......

The game is awesome, I love it. While playing the game I have found a few glitches that occur but I’m unsure if it’s only in my phone. When playing the game and choosing a random mission, let’s say mission 2, for some reason, you will be taken to mission one and even at the start of the mission it says “mission 2, start” even doe its mission 1. This happens on any mission I choose and once I beat the mission, the game counts it as the mission it was supposed to be. Also at the final boss, the app either crashes or the screen suddenly turns black and freezes. Plz fix it :3

Mixed MFI support may hamper otherwise perfect experience.

First, the good: the game truly is a perfect port of one of the greatest standup arcade games ever made.

The downsides are the touch controls are less than elegant and the MFI controls, which would be perfect, don’t map correctly on many devices. Only the jump and shoot buttons work on my two Steel Series controllers. No grenade button.

That said, the mapping on my 8BitDo SNES game pad is perfect! Perfect. And so is the playing experience.

5 stars for joy—minus one for imperfect device mapping.

Control issue

I like that this game is remastered as an app for my phone. However, I'd feel better for my purchase if they controls would be fixed. The movement stick doesn't allow for my finger to move out of the range without stopping the character. The range of movement should be expanded or else I'm playing a game where I'm trying to move and get flanked with grenades because my character stops moving.
