Feeling Bullied by Apple...

This is great news, but unfortunately I'll have to beg the devs to add support for iOS 8.

For those who are able, please enjoy this awesome release!

I've been a huge fan of all the Rockstar games since the release of the first GTA. Hell, my friends and I used to idiotically joke about waiting for "GiTAh 2"...but Bully is by far my favorite game of theirs. It still manages to retain the massive scope of all the GTA games and Red Dead Redemption, while maintaining a very intimate relationship with the main character (Jimmy) that I don't believe I've felt with any of the other Rockstar protagonists. Absolutely love this thing and I can't wait for these bloody 5 hours to be over and done with so I can fire it up for the first time in a decade.

Everyone's favorite chamber of death, doom and decomposition.

I really like the look of this. I have bought nearly all of the Rockstar games on iOS but have not finished any of them apart from Chinatown Wars. The problem is the controls. There is always one mission, usually involving driving, that is impossible due to the controls and I have to give up as I can not progress any further. I don't have an external controller. Are there any potential gamestopping missions on this

Agreed. The story is more concise, albeit shorter, and the world is much smaller, yet everything is so centered around the protagonist. I myself am able to relate to a tale of school shenanigans much more than a gang/mafia one. Virtual crime life is starting to wear me out and bully is a great refreshment among these series.

Bully is just amazing. You can do things around the city and interact with the world around you (in a funny way). Not to mention the minigames, pranks, and weapons. And, you can dress around as a skeleton ninja!

Do missions have checkpoints?

I really hate when if you fail, you have to retrieve the mission and start over (which usually involved driving the previously done stretch)
