I don't remember 1 and 2 ever being ported on the IOS. The ports of 3 and 4 were ports of the DS remakes so they actually have quality to them.

Because 1 and 2 are ports of the PSP versions, which were updates actually done with care, and 3 and 4 are the DS versions with better textures and a smoother framerate (although I think the UI is ugly as sin) so overall an improvement.

Basically, they spent the time, effort and money earlier for actual gaming systems and just did the basic work to port them. With V and VI since they didn't have something better to throw up there and they knew the majority of people playing games on phones don't give a crap they just slapped a shitty filter on the sprites, threw them on a 3D background and called it a day.
Oh, why must I tell 'em again?
What must I tell 'em, my friend?
That we are born into sin
And we are worshiping murderers
Nothing but evil duplicitous men
I know you heard of 'em all
We should just murder 'em all
We should just murder and ball
We dance on the ruins we looting from all of they palace's walls

Nah, the sprites are remade, supposedly by the artist who worked on the originals! But they're so goddamn awful, the enemy sprites are fine, the characters though...

Ew, that just makes it worse. That means that this is probably the best effort they can give and it turned out looking like something someone threw together in a few days.

The in-game sprites and menu portraits have been remade by Kazuko Shibuya who also made the original sprites for Final Fantasy VI.
This was plain inconceivable to me the first time I read it. There's just so many things wrong with the charcter sprites, again, the enemy sprites are gorgeous but the character sprites are goddamn horrible, the overall palette in the game is too bright (And here I thought that the GBA one was bad) and they decided to add stuff like diagonal movement and then there's the whole run button thing.

Diagonal movement was to make it friendlier for phone touch screens. There's really no excuse in them using FF Dimension's character sprites though.

Yes, because no high-profile developer asking for millions of dollars for their game has ever extended their deadline before, and certainly not extremely recently.

I know it's the internet cool guy thing to do to shit on Tim Schafer but it kind of relies on people willfully ignoring the fact that crowdfunding is accounting for only a very small fraction of the development of this game.
well thats a part of why people shit on him they are also mad at him over the whole GG thing too. so it just compounds the hate that people already felt for him.

1: not everybody reacted positively to lab zero extending the deadline
2: their crowdfunding record is much better than schafers
3: schafer extended the deadline not even a week after the game was announced, unlike lab zeros

i know you like schafers shit but dont pretend he hasnt fucked up big time wrt crowdfunding

John Romero uploaded today a video of his SMB3 PC build he made in the 90s: https://vimeo.com/148909578

Some background info:

Quote
A year earlier, John Carmack and John Romero had built, from the ground-up, a PC port of Nintendo's Super Mario Bros. 3, at the time a remarkable feat given PCs weren't supposed to be able to handle side-scrolling like a console could. Initially a crude demo using characters from a Romero game built for Softdisk called Dangerous Dave, (and which they christened Dangerous Dave in Copyright Infringement) the guys eventually had Mario looking so good, and so faithful to the original, they contacted Nintendo about licensing the game from the Japanese company for release on the PC.

While Nintendo of course turned the offer down instantly, another party had become secretly interested in the team's work. With games like Dangerous Dave attracting a cult following, a representative from publisher Apogee began writing to Romero under the guise of a fan, so as not to alert Softdisk, as he had every intention of luring the guys away to make their own games for a living using the concept of shareware, which would see part of a game given away for free to tempt people to pay for the whole thing.

Tempted by this offer, and capitalising upon the platforming technology they'd built for the Mario demo, the team whipped up a side-scroller called Commander Keen, released in December 1990, which quickly became a hit. Keen was a small boy transported into a science-fiction saga, armed with a trusty laser pistol and defended by an oversized...Green Bay Packers helmet.
