This, Espgaluda II HD and Scribblenauts. An expensive night for my iPad.

By the way it was $10.49 AUD, which should be $9.99 USD.

Is it out in the US yet, or we speakin NZ atm? I'm more than happy buying this again to support the devs, and because it is the best of its kind for iOS. I can only imagine how much better the graphics will be in comparison on the iPad 2 from the original version.

Hmm, I see the requirements are as follows:

Requirements: Compatible with iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPod touch (3rd generation), iPod touch (4th generation) and iPad. Requires iOS 3.1 or later

So does that mean that the game would run with retina enabled, but miss the special effects/high quality lighting/etc that the iPad2/iPhone 4S would have? The description seems to read like it would only work on those 2 devices.
