started and noticed some problems with text style

http://disk.tom.ru/w247c6j

look at IMG_0203.png, it's plain text but you can't see word "other."

maybe it's not the only glitch

update 1: indeen, plain text is unusable, cuz you can't see a lot of text on different pages
update 2: problems aren't only with plain text, but with fancy too - http://disk.tom.ru/fmme6vs

oh come on, all text style are glitching

for example:

fancy: at the end on one page you read: "You yell at them to stop but hear only laughter, until this too"
on another page: "disappears as the slab blocks out all light and sound"

Lets connect them: "You yell at them to stop but hear only laughter, until this too disappears as the slab blocks out all light and sound"

ancient:
"You yell at them to stop but hear only laughter, until this too disappears as the slab"
on another page: "disappears as the slab blocks out all light and sound"

connect: "You yell at them to stop but hear only laughter, until this too disappears as the slab disappears as the slab blocks out all light and sound" what?

plain:

"You yell at them to stop but hear only"
on another page: "disappears as the slab blocks out all light and sound"

connect: "You yell at them to stop but hear only disappears as the slab blocks out all light and sound"

update 3: you have to go to main menu (or list through some pages) after choosing another text style and everything will be fine

Thanks for the sale Tin Man. I just purchased the game. When you think about it, $2.99 (or $4.99) for a universal app that is optimized both for iPhone and iPad, and with great original artwork and story and a very cool dice combat system in an interactive storybook, is just an insane value for us customers.

They're both great in totally different ways and do different things well. GA is a more book-like experience with excellent original writing and art, and flawless UI and adaptation to iOS, whereas Fabled Lands is more of a gaming experience with tons of content and more immersive aspects. Both are awesome.

I'm just happy to have some great gamebooks on my iPod Touch...it's exciting to see a great genre taking off, here's hoping for more to come.
