** HD on iPhone 4S and iPad 2, with 60Hz display refresh with in-game “Battery Savings” option turned off.**

Does this mean there's an option to turn this on but it drains your battery fast?

Iphone 4 here, and I'm not sure it would look that much better on a 4S. That's not to say it looks bad though, by no means.

I know it's not retina...

The gameplay is actually quite fun. I'm impressed how they handled the controls, actually, they're pretty good. I thought the use of the touch screen in addition to the traditional joystick was pretty awesome.

There's another (default) option in the menu for controls - "touch", but I don't want to use it, joystick serves me just fine.

I think I feel the same way about this that I do about Aralon - the game is not the best looking, but there's a lot of game to enjoy.

This is TouchArcade, where 2$ for a game is too much, 5$ is an outrage, and 10$ or more is putting sugar in their car tanks whilst killing puppies.

Deleting half my MP3s... preparing to sync to iTunes over DSL... if I'm not back in 2 hours assume the game is really good or my iPod melted.

Edit: Make that 3-4 hours for download.

I'm not much into the game but it's smooth gameplay and the little details are great in Retina Display. I'm just really grossed out by the cut-scenes. They look like poor YouTube uploads.
