We got a look at the first episode and came away impressed -IGN

"One of the sharpest, funniest and solidly built games Telltale has done yet" -Destructoid

One psychic ability allows [Max] to transform into any physical object an interesting puzzle-solving device ... and since it lets Max turn into stuff like plants and bazookas, it's also super funny. Joystiq

In The Devils Playhouse, Telltale's episodic game series made for iPad, an otherworldy power for controlling matter and space calls to the strongest and strangest who might wield it -- intergalactic warlords and eldritch gods, under-dwellers and scholars of the arcane.

Episode 1 The Penal Zone starts off with a bang as intergalactic gorilla invader Skunk'ape sets his sights on unhinged rabbit Max, to seize his newly discovered mysterious powers. While mastering these abilities -- future sight, teleportation, shape shifting, mind reading -- and investigating their ancient source, Freelance Police Sam & Max must fend off Skunkape and get him banished to The Penal Zone.

Getting involved in Sam & Maxs adventure with the luxurious iPad screen and the super touch-friendly presentation, players will engage directly with this world in a unique gaming experience unlike anything thats come before. One of the best looking games you'll find for the system.

I bought it and it has been running fine on my iPad. I rebooted before playing. I've played for about 15 minutes so far. The graphics are awesome, and so is the voice acting. Totally worth $1.99.

Wow, I paid $9.99 and don't regret it. This is very polished and is a very good length, plus it's the most enjoyable iPad game to date despite minor, infrequent issues. I hope this is a "let's get more people on board for the other four episodes" sale. The different schedule for iPad users is annoying, but it should lead to an incredibly well-optimized game.

Finished this game on the iPad last week. Love it...great voice acting, really funny, fairly good ruining game playing right after a reboot, and good ending. Can't wait for the next episodes...hopefully they release the rest on iPad too. Definitely worth the $7 I paid for it, $1.99 is a steal.

And... episodes 2-5 are nowhere to be found. I only want 4 and 5 now, but I would have totally gotten an iPad season pass.

Yeah, $.99 is a steal, nobody should miss this one. It's still one of the iPad's showcase games.
