DO NOT BUY! READ FIRST!! I love KOF but this app version will leave you frustrated. Once you get past level 3 the game gets extremely hard to the point that you can't do any damage, you won't be able to land any hits and even if you block it'll still hit you. Every combo or special move will be interrupted. Changing the difficulty on the main page makes no difference. It's not worth it, trust me

Bad Controls! The down SP button doesn't even work which need a fix. I can't even get past the 4th stage on difficulty one because the enemy know when your gonna attack, jump, crouch, or anything please fix.The bot are so repetitive and fix the grab mechanics cause I keep grabbing some times and the for some reason the grab doesn't work and then the enemy grabs me when I hit them first. Also buy KOF 98 it better controls and easy to play.Last but not least please allow us to use both all desperation move because I hate that I have to actually use the joystick just to do one move and mess up just basically do the same like KOF 98. Add Orchi Plz.

It's a great port, it's all original, but things could be improved for the player if the game wasn't as difficult (the AI always reacts with the exact counter to what you've just done, and if you make an input mistake then you just let yourself open and the opponent will destroy half of your life bar for that mistake). Also I think there should be something done about the lag that fire attacks cause the game to have. Using many character's attacks slow the game down a lot...
