Is game from 2010 (never updated) still playable on new IOS?

I want to buy this game: Watson The Beginning (Sherlock Holmes). It is out in 2010 and is never updated since October 2010.

Since I'm following Supermagical thread and discover that Supermagical crashes on IOS 6 beta while not on IOS 5 (hence need an update), do you think this game is still playable? On a global way, if I want to buy old games that is never updated, should I concern about crashes?

I'm on iOS 6 beta and the vast majority of apps run fine. I think only one of my apps has crashed on startup, presumably due to the OS. I can't speak for the app in question, though, because I don't own it.

You should have no such concerns.
