And true, it's on sale for $7.99 (5,99 ) all chapters.
Very tempting.

Get it. The game is very long, the story telling great and it's really a deal.
The DS version is still nearly 30 bucks on Amazon:

Lowest price I saw somewhere was around 20 bucks for the DS, but that was a sale.

Hi, you seemed to be lost on the Internets.
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.

oooo I may pick this up. Very long you say? What's a good guesstimate for the length? And is it overly difficult. I can do puzzles but not anything way too complex =l

Here's a pretty decent estimation:

Yeah, I'd also say around 20 hrs for everything.

It's easy in the beginning and gets more difficult later, but every scene is solveable. The puzzles are fair. Even more, the game gives you tips and hints from time to time, so you should be able to solve the stuff. Most time you know your goal (what to do), you just have to figure out how to do it.

This game is so worth it at whatever price they're asking. Just so happens that it's on sale for 5.49 for all chapters in the UK, and anyone who's on the fence should get off it now.

This game doesn't go on sale very often, and yes the game is quite long. I bought the game ages ago but have only started playing through recently. It's longer than I expected it to be.

If you get stuck it's easy to find a solution online. The game is not perfect by any means, but I think it's superior to the DS version.

Sometimes I need to pinch myself to make sure I'm not dreaming, it's incredible to think I'm playing this on my iPod. I love Nintendo, and always will, but they have some catching up to do.

All I need now is Phoenix Wright HD Trilogy.

Definitely worthy of whatever accolades have been rained upon it, this is an excellent game. Considering how many games I own and (don't) play on iOS, the fact that I'm on my second playthrough at the moment is very telling.

I just completed the game for the first time, and all I have to say is wow. Wow wow wow. 2nd play through is a must with this game. Fantastic.

Yea, can only second this. A truly amazing game, which will remain a classic for a long time.

But speaking of replays - is it possible to back-up content IAPs, such as here with iFunbox?
Because, IIRC, the Ghost Trick isn't small, but it is one of the few games that I am sure I'd want to replay and generally keep for a long time and I am afraid that if it is pulled, it will be lost to me.
