Konami releases classic X-Men arcade game for iOS

Konami Digital Entertainment has released an iOS version of its classic 1992 X-Men arcade game. Retaining the retro 8-bit graphics and design of the original, X-Men is a side-scrolling action game where players take on the role of their favourite X-Men characters and fight their way through Sentinels and battle classic villains such as Pyro, Mystique and Magneto. The game provides local multiplayer support and integration with Game Center, Openfeint and Facebook for tracking leaderboards and posting achievements. X-Men is a universal app and is available from the App Store for $3.

Speaking as somsone who dumped many quarters into this game way back when? Great translation, perfect port, runs great on my iPad.

...the game itself, though, did NOT age well. Only get if you’re a truly rabid X-Men fan, have fond memories of the original arcade game, or like incredibly unfair and cheap-as-hell (the AI kicking your rear, that is, not cheap price) beat-em-ups.
