Is it just me or do they never update their graphics engine at all?

What I love about these games is the fact they run in real time even when they aren't being played. Their pretty simple but it's fun to see how your characters develop after a day on their own.
I have to admit I've never played them on IOS so I don't know what the port is like but they are a nice distraction on pc.
I may pick this up next time I have some credit.

I don't mean to sound bitter, cold, or cruel, but I am, so that's how it comes out

These games play just fine on the iPad/iPhone. They're just like the Mac versions that I've played on the computer. I have versions 1-4 so I'm glad that #5 is out.

I played 1-3 but they get kind of tiring after a while. Never knew a 4 was out, nor did I know a 5 was on it's way. hahaahaha

I agree, as much as I love the gameplay mechanics behind the VV series, it just gets extremely boring playing multiple games that have different stories but all look almost exactly the same. (And not in a very good way either)

It's cool, refreshing, and irresistibly tantalizing...ChocoVanilla Ice-Cream!
