    That is a lot of money for a single classic title. I am feeling it should be <$5 US.

      This comment would make sense if it was something like $40… but for $8? Come on, that’s less than I spend on lunch every day, and this isn’t a just a ROM in an emulator; they added an auto-map, FM music, and some miscellaneous other improvements. This is definitely worth it.
