I'm a huge fan of the pc version so i toftt! The game is not retina ready but features no IAP. You only have access to the three basic races (so no expansions for now).
You can adjust different visual effects and the game runs exactly like it's pc counterpart.

Every feature is there except for multiplayer and the new galactic conquest mode so i hope that positech is listening! We need the other races and cross platform multiplayer! Other than that the port is great (oh and Gratuitous tank battles could be a great fit for the ipad too)

Side note: please include multitasking in the next update!!

DOESN'T APPEAR TO WORK ON MY IPAD 3....

The Touch screen seems to be working on some strange mirror image so I touch top left and it thinks it's bottom - right! Will keep trying and I'll let you know if it fixes itself!

It's wierd because the mirror image only happens on the fleet deployment screen (albeit the main part of the game lol)...all of the other screens work fine!

Same problem on ipad2. Mirrored screen controls make this version unplayable. Once it's fixed though, and I'm quite certain Cliffski will not let his game remain in this state if he has to go beat up the contractor that ported it, it will be great.

Ten dollars too much? Pleae I spent 30 on the PC version before buying the expansion DLC. if ten is too much for a great PC game, go back to FarmVille and Mafia Wars.

PS... turn your iPad over and the mirrored controls bug goes away. They must have tested on iPads ALWAYS TURNED IN THE SAME ORIENTATION. With the button and sync port on the right it works great, turned clockwise, the way I usually play, the mirrored controls bug.

Looks like its going to be great but right now it's really flaky.

For example, in ship design, flick between the blueprint and physical views a few times and it always crashed on my iPad 3.

And the control issue is also a problem (though thankfully there is a workaround). My impression right now is that this was rushed to the store and could actually have done with a few more rounds of testing and fixing.

No multitasking support either, it seems. Game itself is fun. Port is a little off.
