Console: iPod Touch
# of Players: 2 (via Bluetooth)
Date Released: February 17th, 2010
Update Release: June 23rd, 2010
So I decided to give in and buy this little piece of software for my iPod Touch. Now before I get into the details of the game itself, this concept of playing games on the Touch has always intrigued me, especially when Capcom decided to release this tiny gem. I’ve been hearing nothing but decent reviews on this game (4 stars out of 5 in the app store), so after much procrastination and $9.99 later, I got it on my iPod touch.
