YAY! It already comes out? 5,- € is a steal for this, this is a full port of the PC original game. Hours and hours and hours of gameplay! And the 3GS is supported, hurray!
This just p'wned IB2.

I don't think I saw a single complaint. You saw what you wanted to see.

Okay, price yes, I concede that point.

The size I was just pointing out - since this is the first app I know of that is over 1GB download. Even IB2 is less. (That's why it's bold in the first post)

The eye roll sure makes it look like a complaint. None the less, there's no point in ticky tacky arguing. It just frustrates me that the people on this forum, who are by far some of the most hardcore gamers on this platform (much more than the avg. iPhone/iPad/iPod touch user), still find reasons to complain over a game like this. We should all be ecstatic to have the ability to play this on our iDevices.

The Bard's Tale and IFII on the same night? All we need now is for Prevail to come roaring through the clouds (and for yonder cowboy simulation from Gameloft to mosey on into town), and this week's thursday release will cause a unprecedented drop in productivity in industrialized countries

This is the 2000s reboot where they turned it into a very funny plot-driven hack and slash.
