The 1992 X-MEN arcade game featured six of the X-men characters battling Magneto's forces, and this app reproduces the original graphics and sound effects, from the cutscenes to the action. Controls are set up the same as the arcade game -- "joystick" on the left, and three buttons on the right. Unlike the arcade game, however, you can continue as many times as you want without feeding in more quarters, making the price a bargain in comparison. Multiplayer games are possible with multiple friends running the app on nearby devices but not over the internet.

For those who like old arcade games, X-men will be a nostalgic experience, but the graphics and gameplay may not meet the standards of kids who are used to playing games on the X360 and PS3s. Still, it's a snapshot of an earlier era and still holds some of its original charms.
