Think it looks great, love seeing recreations of old classic formats or games. Stardash was the other one which looked like an original Gameboy game which was pretty good.
Decided to give the new Prince of Persia a go so downloading that now
I was fortunate enough to own an Atari Lynx from when it launched so rather understandably have always seen GameBoy for what it was, albeit that it had Tetris and the batteries lasted longer. GameBoy games looked utter garbage back in 1990 and nothing much has changed in the intervening years. The very thought of paying real money in 2012 to play a GameBoy-lookalike game on my iPhone 4 makes me want to and do a facepalm. At least Star Dash sought to do something a little different.
Prince of Persia is a game that never really grabbed me back in the day. I know it's supposed to be one of the 'classics' that it's not considered 'cool' to not like but there it is. I totally 'get' for why the game was so loved by so many though and it's cool to see an iOS release.
