IOS Street Fighter IV for a buck, 100% of Proceeds to Earthquake Relief

No High Scores

Pictured is a horrible scene from the Sendai Airport. I felt it was more appropriate given the situation than a screenshot of Street Fighter IV for IOS, which is now on sale for one dollar. Capcom is donating 100% of the proceeds from this sale to the relief effort, and I think that’s pretty awesome. These folks need our help, and if you’ve ever considered downloading this great App, now is the time to do it. I bought it a couple of months back on a five dollar sale or else I’d be waiting for it to trickle down to my aging 3G right now. Link up right here to the App Storeto do something good for our Japanese friends and get a great game. They’re doing this through March 22, so you’ve got some time to save your pennies.

    I had forgotten this was on iOS, and how can I say no?

    I was _really_ surprised at how good it is. Obviously, it’s not the full SSFIV experience and it’s probably still pretty short of the upcoming 3DS edition, but you get plenty of the core fighters (and Deejay) and although the controls are simplified, they’re effective and the game totally works as a casual, on the go thing. It actually has some of the better virtual D-Pad work I’ve seen.

    And it runs really well on my 3G, so if you have an older phone, don’t be scared.

    I haven’t heard anything but reviews like yours, but I didn’t have an iOS device until my recent acquisition the iPod 4th gen. Also, you may have received an e-mail from a friend of mine who asked for suggestions about iOS game review sites. His game is Super Block Party and is basically a Tetris Attack / Pokemon Puzzle League clone.

    I really liked your column on iOS games and basically bought everything in it, but I know your device is apparently not completely compatible with his game. I’m hoping you guys can figure something out with that because it’s really fun, but barring any solutions maybe I could even freelance some writing if you needed someone with a newer iOS device?

    Gift this game too. It’s great for when everyone you know has this. You can have impromptu battles all the time. So much fun when you’re sitting next to your boss at work and he asks what apps I have and it turns into a full on party. We bond and I don’t end up late, because he asked for a rematch and lunch lasted an hour and 45 minutes.

    True story. Happened last week.
