iPad support? Check!
Retina support? Check!
I've been waiting for this moment and bought the game right away.
Please also note that TA has placed a review of the game on the frontpage.

iPhone 4 -> Galaxy S4 -> OnePlus One -> iPhone 6 Plus 128GB Space Gray... it's good to be back!

Is there iCloud support for save between the iPhone and iPad? About how long is the total gameplay, give or take? Thanks!

Hi, I'm stuck on level 9, unable to activate the scanner. Don't even know what this scanner looks like or where to find it.

Any suggestions?

Otherwise, I did everything else. Found the biomatter and the two relics. Nevertheless, I'm unable to access the area to the west. There are two narrow passageways, but the ship doesn't fit.

My total mission time was 4h 50m at the end.

The scanner is the large machine in the middle of the map. It leads to the west (part that you can't access.) You need to activate the reactor first in order to run the scanner. Gather the crystals from the northwest, then go southeast to activate the reactor.

Thank you, but I did all that you said, except I am not able to activate the scanner. Shouldn't that happen automatically? When I activated the reactor with the chrystals, the scanner's lights turned on, but whenever I come close, nothing happens. I'm just able to bump into it. That's all.

Edit: I just found out how to fly into the scanner! Thank you for the reply :-)

I've gotten up to level 10 now and have only found 3 artifacts. Still missing some to upgrade my ship.

Could anybody please tell me if I should have found more within the first ten levels?

That would be nice. I can imagine wanting to play it primarily on the iPad but be able to pickup where I last was on the iPhone.

Ok, no reason for not getting it any more. I've always found the setting, style and promised gameplay intreaging, but wanted to play on the iPad as I expect the 3GS to be too slow.

Even with everything enabled in settings, at least the first three missions of game runs pretty smoothly. Love the controls. And the visuals. And mechanics so far.
