Just tried the lite (which let's you play the first, fairly long, level) on my iPhone 4. Freaking gorgeous -- in fact, it looks pretty darn close to the Mac/PC version. The framerate is surprisingly good, and the controls could very well be slightly better than on the Mac, since manipulating objects feels a bit more natural on a touch screen than with a mouse. The only concern I have is that sometimes an object you need to move ends up under one of the screen controls, which means you have to move around a bit to complete the task -- not a big deal.

I'll be picking up the full version tonight for sure.

This game was awesome on Wiiware. Should be even better on iPad. It isn't super-long, though, and it could use more variety.

Not sure why the file size ballooned so much. I thought the Wiiware file size limit was 40 MB. Maybe better graphics, universal?

Now playing: Squids, Shantae, Mage Gauntlet, Roboto, Emberwind, Cordy, Whale Trail, Aquaria, Super Crossfire, Extraction, Crazy Hedgy, Terra Noctis, Pocket RPG, Glowfish, Steambirds, Edge Ex, SANDWICHES!!, Goat Up, Bean's Quest, Last Rocket, Blobster, Run Jump Kill, Don't Run WAPS, Jap Werewolf, Space Tripper, Sonic CD, Sleepy Jack.

For .99 it's tough to complain about length (which, if I remember correctly from the Mac version, it's about 3-4 hours. The PC/Mac version had enhanced graphics and this one is universal, so that may account for the larger size. BTW, the game has a MetaCritic score of 82 -- not too shabby.

EDIT: it's actually not universal. Oh well. I kind of prefer playing platformers on my iPhone, but it would have been nice to had a choice.

I'm glad there's a lite. I'll grab that when it hits Japan in about an hour and try to leave impressions. Thanks SZ.

Yes, for 99 cents there should be no complaints about length. I paid $10 for it on Wiiware and got 3 hours out of it.
