Looks like the iPad only of very much enhanced version of the app ABCA also made by KB. Already bought and hope to post some thoughts (may be much) later.

(I always want the universal version of ABCA and I get this. )

Statement: Star Wars has 2 characters with strange use of grammar: Yoda and HK-47. I pick HK-47 for it is meaner.

Definitely has a lot in common with WELDER. Any fans of that should be all over this.

Great game. Very much like ABCA (and therefore similar to the other games that have come since, like Welder) but with a fun, quest-based hook. Buy it.

Anything from Kieffer Bros gets my attention, but I'm a little burned out on word games. Gonna have to stick this on the Watch List while I think about it.

Any word on iPad 3 retina support?

As a beta tester I can confirm retina support and that it looks great

Yes, it looks very similar to ABCA, same 5x7 grid too. Since ABCA is gone from the app store, I wonder if we will be seeing Spell Rift for iPhone.

As usual with Kieffer Bros games, this looks so polished! Added to my wish list.

This is a very polished word game.
