There isn't going to be an iPad 1 version I suppose?

This game is fantastic, and has been "ripping the Mac App Store a new one". I actually pre-ordered it for its original PC release as I'm a huge fan of Samorost.

Given that it's iPad 2 only, it's likely that it's been compiled with Flash CS5. As someone looking into Flash for iOS, are any of the devs able to confirm/deny how the game was built for the iOS?

Yes, it should be $4.99 USD. I've wanted this one for a long time but never gotten around to it. No problem paying 5 bucks for what is supposed to be a great game.

Then you need to dip your fingers in some mayo and smear it all over your iDevice screen for greater REALISM!

The iPad 2 is an iPad 1 with cameras. It does not have a higher resolution, and this is just silly that I can't run Machinarium on my iPad 1.

The iPad 2 also has a much better CPU (twice as fast as iPad 1), a better GPU (9x as fast as iPad 1) and twice the RAM (512MB vs. 256MB).

And oh yeah, it has 2 cameras, and iPad 1 has zero. But you already know about that.

Is this a point and clicky, Monkey Island type?

It is point and click, yes, but there is no dialogue whatsoever. There is some humor, but it's fairly black, and there are no gags like you get in the Monkey Island games. All of the puzzles are visual, as is the entire game UI. The Samarost games by the same developer are the best comparisons, and they're free to play online. Try them out.

Ah thanks. I decided to take the plunge anyhow as it looks decent, and, i can gloat to my mate with an ipad 1 that he can't play it
