Nice, had my eye on Perfect Cell for a while now. Should I get Edge if I already have Edge Extended?

Same question I have too. Admittedly, I only got up to ~lev 24 and just stopped playing...

Edge is great, but it looks kinda old compared to Edge Extended.

If you do go that route, stop playing Extended and play through the first one, then come back...

All four of these games ROCK!

When you say old, do you mean not as sharp as Edge Extended? Or the level design looks old?

It looks like there is an update to Edge today.. With the updated 3D engine, maybe the original Edge won't look so "old"?

A wise man speaks.

Trucker's Delight is very much unappealing to me, plus it contrasts with their other more elegant, minimalist titles in such an unflattering way, it looks like it came form a completely different company.

The original Edge runs on a 2D engine, but looks a lot like Extended. It's actually quite remarkable when you think of it. There are less neat visual & conceptual tricks than in Extended, but the level design is excellent, and all levels are different from one another.

Has anyone else found it curious that Osmos went on sale at the exact same time as Mobigame's titles? It's a good idea for them to jump on the bandwagon while like-minded gamers are on a buying frenzy, but still I wonder if both studios aren't buddies or somethin'.

Mostly the 2D engine looks a lot less smooth than Extended. Levels are fine (though Extended does add some elements, like the black cube.)

I didn't finish Edge the first time around, and went back to it after having played two dozen Extended levels... it's the same, but not, very much like looking at a 4:3 version of a movie after having just watched the enchanced 16:9... a bit of a jump, but you get used to it after a while.

It's all got something to do with the Autumnal Equinox or whatever that is

I somehow doubt Mobigame would go through the trouble of upgrading the original Edge to 3D. That would mean rebuilding all levels from scratch, unless they have some sort of voodoo magic I don't know about.

They could instead build a whole new game form the original levels and sell that instead, like some kind of "Deluxe Edition".
