So ready to grab this tonight. Been hearing way too many good things about the iPad version of the game since it topped the charts. It's finally here for the small screen!

Love this game on the iPad - but part of what makes it great is the spread out screen. Enemies come from all different places and then leave through portals and stuff and I wonder how that will translate to the small screen. The complexity makes it great fun so I am on the fence to get it again - fantastic game but worried that having to zoom in and out would miss enemies that sneak by - they can do that on a full screen anyway!

Who am I kidding? I will be getting this. Maybe the levels will be different and there is one way to find out!

As someone who played this a ton in browser, on iPad and had the opportunity to run through the beta this looks amazing on the smaller screen. I had my doubts that they could pull it off but it does look great, even with the larger levels. You can zoom in but the controls worked so great I never felt the need.

The Heroes add a completely new dimension to the game and are not needed to play, beat or enjoy it at all. I played through the whole game in browser before heroes were added and absolutely loved it. If it follows the iPad model, two of the heroes are free which gives you more then enough opportunity to try them out.

For .99 you are getting a high quality, fully playable, totally enjoyable experience. Hope this helps...
