I thought that I got beyond my issues with the controls The on screen controls were terrible but then I got an Nvidea Shield and I thought all of my problems would be solved. The controls work very well now but now there is an issue with a white background showing up for an entire line wherever there is text. The white lines run through the game of play making it difficult to play. The text background needs to be transparent.
Close, but bad controls = unplayable game Difficult to give a comprehensive review, because the virtual inability to move sideways makes it very difficult to progress through the game. The graphics look as I remember them, and the animation & sound that I've regarded look spot on, but until the controllers actually control, it's tough to call this a playable game.
Jonette The controls do not move the climber like it should. Doesn't move up or side ways. Really disappointed in it. Please fix the problem so i can enjoy the game just as i did as a kid
Needs some work This was my favorite game back in 1980. Played it all the time. Sensitivity leaves a lot to be desired. Moving left/right proves difficult. Can't get half way up a building here; was able to climb a few buildings on the real thing. HTC Incredible.
Bad controls Been waiting for these kind of apps... But controls just suck bad... Fix the controls and it would be worth paying for even. Graphics are great... Controls stink.. Uninstalling until better
Absolute disgrace! There is no Nvidia Shield Support and you can't even use the Shield's controls mapping feature because this game's on-screen controls are whacked! There's also a graphical glitch when playing this on the Shield where white lines spread across the screen and obstruct your view. Unplayable!
The malfunction which indicated "Not licensed",and the application shutting down after being game over, has been corrected.（2011/12/26）
