Looks fantastic. Is it universal or is there an iPad version? Reckon it would play a lot better on the larger screen...

No comment on the IAPs, since we had everything unlocked, but this is a great game. If you enjoy the likes of Dust (flash game) and want a somewhat better-presented game that you can take with you, this will do you just fine. And hell, it's free.

I have to say though, the main game has no objectives. It's literally a sandbox - there for you to create whatever you want, letting your imagination run wild. The good news is that you can create anything from Rube Goldberg machines, to growing a plant with seeds, water, sunshine and lots of love, before covering it in oil, then setting said oil on fire. Just to see what happens.

Sandbox indeed.

Well this version has objectives, you unlock new elements as the "days" (missions) go by and you need to complete certain tasks. Also you've got a lot of achievements (game center) to keep yourself busy

Well I knew there were "days" where you unlock elements, but the main part is when you're let loose to create your own anythings once you have unlocked everything. I don't think the days will be the main draw to the game. ^^
