First of all, this sale is great. I already played it on the iPhone and I really enjoyed it. However I don't "need" to play it again on the iPad but I would appriciate if you would create an universal app (you know, universal, savegames...).

Multiplayer would also be very nice and would add a nice touch the the missions!

This is an universal app btw. lol.. the HD suffix does not indicate that it is an ipad only game and is actually meant to differentiate this remade/remodelled/retextured version of GoF2 from the previous SD version. It has cloud saving too.

I noticed the description said, "If you already own the non-HD version of Galaxy on Fire 2, you will be able to unlock Valkyrie HD for free!"

I do own the non-HD version...and I just bought the HD version for my new iPad! So how does the unlock work? Do I need to have both present on my device? Do I need to have done something particular in non-HD first? Does it just "know" from my account?

Edit: I finally got access to my device and answered my own question: It seems that if GoF2-HD detects the presence of the non-HD version on your device, then Valkyrie HD is automatically unlocked (it pops up a message saying basically that).

Not sure what folks who don't have the room to host both will do, but thankfully I did have room for both at least temporarily on my device! Hopefully I don't have to keep both around on the same device!

I'd definitely say buy. It's a great game and the graphics are awesome.

And the game is universal, and the save games can be transferred to the SD version or Mac version via iCloud or Openfeint too
