S&S is such a cute and funny game! Gameplay is not that tough though and you can complete the game in couple of hrs/days, but its a must-try. The art style and graphics remind me much of Battleheart

Are there any issues with S&S HD? And is it retina enabled for the iPad 3?

@ TwoTribes: is there going to be a retina display update for S&S HD? I've wanted to buy your game for long time but have held back as it has never been updated since its release last year.

why should there be an retina update? its a wii port with alot of content running below ipad2 resolution but it does not really stick out much since its cartoon art anyway.. all a retina update would do is probably add some sharpness to the image that would be barely noticeable during gameplay anyway..

there is only a minmal amount of 3d assets anway who would benefit from finer edges.. but overall i doubt it would be much of a difference..

How much is swords and soldiers like Paladog? I looked through the main thread, and this question was asked a number of times, but was never answered. So, being like Paladog is a good thing, IMO. Toki Tori is still an excellent puzzle game.

Your period key seems to be broken.

I would like to see a retina update. I realize that it may not be critical, but it's reasonable to ask a developer whether or not there are plans for an update. I have S&S on iphone, and this sale convinced me to pick it up for the iPad as well.
