Are the community maps built by PC players available for iPad players too (and vice-versa) or are they platform-locked?

All the maps are available to everyone. So that means the iPad version comes with a TON of extra maps

A fan-based website called Dynamite Maps has been running map designing contests in collaboration with me - there will be a new one announced soon! Prizes and stuff will ensue

This is a good game. Puzzle games usually irritate me, but this is fun.

I agree with the other folks who posted here - this is an excellent game with very nice presentation. The built in levels I have played so far are fun and the ability to create my own levels and play others' levels makes it really special and worth the "premium" price.

Fantastic on the PC. Bought it as soon as I saw it was out on iPad - hadn't kept up with the coming soon stuff, so didn't even know it was on the way. Haven't played yet, but I'm expecting to find it just as fun as the desktop version.
