Looks pretty good, but I'm just not buying (literally) this whole "iPad version at 3x the iPhone version's price" thing any more. Wish listed and will pick it up when it's 99c. If I still care by then.

+1 from me.
I simply do not understand the price difference between iPad and iPhone versions.

Btw - if you want a real 3D match-3, I think this game i better.
Here you have to match blocks inside the cube too:

It should be a standard feature that you can turn on/off in-game music and sound effects separately in all games

Really? You don't think the larger iPad screen provides an improved experience?

I have already payed once for the improved experience by buying an iPad 2 instead of an iPod Touch.

I'm having a blast with the Eye of Ra mode! Untimed but you must plan each move very carefully to keep stuff going.

Great, but has issues on iPad 2

I bought this as soon as I saw the sale and it is really excellent. However, after I exited the game, I see graphical glitches (blacked out rectangular areas of the screen) within other apps. A reboot corrected the issue. Another reviewer on iTunes with an iPad 2 reports the same issue.

I got the game soon after it was first released and while I do enjoy it I have a few issues.

-Crashes on my iPad 1st Gen after playing several games in a row (even after a fresh reboot).
-3D settings not saved between sessions (I found it a cute gimmick but am getting tired of having to disable it every time I start up a new session of runs).
-Power-ups are never explained anywhere. Still have no clue what the "Hyper" one does (as many of these power-ups will have effects cube wide and not simply the sides you can currently see).
