New Game- Garou- Mark of the Wolves, Neo Geo Classic, Now Available for Android and iOS

SNK Playmore are doing more ports of some of their classic Neo Geo console games.  The latest title to receive the porting treatment is Garou: Mark of the Wolves.  As with most of their ports to the mobile market, Garou: Mark of the Wolves is available for Android and iOS.  Also as with their other ports, there are onscreen controls that obstruct the view of the action quite a bit, based on the size of your fingers.

For retro fighting fans though most of the possible problems that they might encounter with Garou: Mark of the Wolves is a small price to pay (outside of the cost of the app itself).  Previously Garou: Mark of the Wolves appeared on Playstation 2, Sega Dreamcast, Xbox Live Arcade and the actual Neo Geo console itself (at an outrageously high price of course).

For those that do not know their retrogaming fighting game timeline, Garou: Mark of the Wolves is one of the last titles in the Fatal Fury series.  Much to the dismay of the fans, the Fatal Fury games along with many others were sucked up into the King of Fighters series of games (some have seen ports to mobile platforms).
