Ah! Now I can finally say something in the forums!

So...as I mentioned previously, my son (he's 9 1/2) and I have had the great privilege of being allowed to test Gesundheit since the very early betas. It wasn't easy having to keep quiet about the game...I personally think it's really well done.

As has been said before, the controls are fairly easy; you just tap where you want your pig to move, and shooting snot is a simple slide back with your finger. Easy peasy.

The game starts very easy, but gets harder as the game progresses beyond the first "world". There are different monsters to encounter, and the levels get very tricky. Trust me on that one! Getting all 3 star fruits and leading the monsters to their traps can be downright tough. To me, it's an amazing action/puzzle type game. As an overall package, it's unique on the App Store and deserves to do well!

I don't recommend too many games, but this is one of my favorites. It has that, "just one more try" thing that pulls you in and keeps you playing and coming back for more.

The guys at RC and Konami did a great job!

If you have any questions...fire away. I'm on vacation right now, but get on TA at least once a day.

This game is absolutely beautiful, and so far is quite fun. I'm looking forward to playing it more tonight. I might even double dip and get the iPhone version too while on sale as I know my kids will like it, and that will keep them off the iPad version... at least if I hide it.

I thought the iPad version was universal, but the phone version wasn't?

Is it??? If so then I'm set. I didn't think it was, but now I will check... and no, no it is not.

Does the Hd/ipad version have more features? So you are saying I can also put it on my ipod touch?

As I said above, it is *NOT* universal.

Come on, it's cheap at the moment: 1,59 €! You'll love it on the bigger screen. The art work and presentation is extraordinary and I cannot imagine it working as well on an iPod. And it's memory hungry, it would not start on my iPad 2 when I launched it for the first time, so forget the smaller version.

This is sure one investment that I won't regret; like a kind of Theseus/Mummy Maze in real time with logic puzzles. Already early on it's sometimes not easy to get the best rating for a level and you need to figure out the correct sequence of things. Combine that with some quick acting and there is an app here which will see me coming back often. Don't be fooled by the children's drawing look of things- there's a lot of black humor hidden there. I love it.

Now playing: Desktop Dungeons, Card Crawl, XCOM, PvZ2, Kingdom Rush
Waiting for: Love you to bits, Lumino City, Onirim

Sorry Crunc, I was responding to another poster and had not seen your post yet.

I actually did buy it last night. It is Cordy that has the ipad version that is universal. So if you pay $5 you can play it on both devices.
