So my advice to you is save the extra money and buy your dad an iPad Mini. I'm sure he'll love it! Good luck. Correction Sunday December 23, 2012:This story mistakenly characterized the price difference between the iPad Mini and the Fourth Generation iPad. The price difference is actually $170. The story has been corrected to reflect this information. Ask Maggie is an advice column that answers readers' wireless and broadband questions.

In this edition of Ask Maggie, CNET's Marguerite Reardon offers some advice on smartphone cases and also helps a reader decide between the iPad Mini and the fourth generation iPad, You know those old ladies who cover their sofas with plastic? That's what I think about night garden xi iphone case people who get cases for their smartphones, Be respectful, keep it civil and stay on topic, We delete comments that violate our policy, which we encourage you to read, Discussion threads can be closed at any time at our discretion..
But would I want to play that same game today, even if it were perfectly emulated like that other '80s classic, Karate Champ? Frankly, no. I've never been a fan of arcade or console emulators, because the controls usually don't translate well and the graphics, well, suck by today's standards. That's why I'm delighted that Mechner, back in the saddle, went the Pitfall route in developing the glorious new Karateka for iOS, effectively creating a brand-new game while keeping true to the spirit of the original.
Indeed, the story remains the same: night garden xi iphone case the fair Mariko has been captured by evil warlord Akuma, and it's your job to rescue her, This entails using your fists (and feet) of fury to defeat an ever-tougher series of guards standing between you and your sweetheart, What began as a pretty but pixelated 2D karate game has evolved into a lush 3D karate game, with a camera that shifts to an over-the-shoulder perspective as you run from one fight to the next, then settles on the more familiar side-scrolling view for the actual combat..
And combat itself is fairly simplistic -- some would say overly so. It's all a matter of timing: tap the screen at just the right moments to block attacks, then again to unleash your blows. Gather health-restoring flowers when you can, and store up your "Chi" to strike with a special attack. If you take too many hits, your health meter runs out, leaving you in a crumpled heap. However, and here's where Karateka 2012 takes an interesting turn; the game doesn't end there like it did in the original. If you lose your first life, a second suitor appears to try to rescue Mariko. And if he buys it, a third guy comes on the scene. Ultimately, it's Bachelor Number 1 (aka "true love") she wants, so the replay value lies in trying to get all the way through on just one life.
