    Just wondering why the iPad mini 2 can run it while iPhones 4S and 5 can't. basically they have the same processor (even better on the 5).

    Don't iPads have more RAM? It says minimum 1 GB required. And whatever "Metal" means as well, maybe.

    Being old enough to remember home PC's like the C64 and the Amiga, even though this will obviously be arcade in nature the visuals are very impressive.

    The iPhone 4S and 5 issue could be iOS related. Not 100% sure about the 5 but I know of friends who are unable to update to the latest version of iOS on their 4S phones. Or it could just be Apple being difficult!;)

  8. Apple have a 5 year brik cycle. If your iPhone is over 5 years old it ceases to become relevant in the wild
