Should I buy this? And why? I tried the lite version, but I still don't know if I should buy this now that the HD version is cheaper and universal...

well... if you didn't like the lite version, then it's probably not going to click with you. I was sold after the trailer, and wound up purchasing both versions, and haven't regretted it once. If you want some impressions, the iPhone/iPod thread is full of em.

I really wouldn't mind double-dipping for Wimp, but considering this takes up 5 times the amount of the space the "non-HD" version does and I've only got an iPhone 4 with extremely limited space right now, I don't see the point. :/ I'll think about it.

Then I think I won't buy it since it's not my cup of tea. Thanks!

On iphone now and a little busy, but wanted to say this is one of the BEST games on ios. It is my FAVORITE puzzling platform game, and it is great fun. I too have both versions of the game and both of the versions are good.

Buy the hd version it is amazing looking, it makes the game so much more immersive and looks better than most console games.

The only negative is it is 5x bigger at around 500 mb. If you have a new ipad or plan on buying the ipad 4, then get this by all means. If you are really low on disk space, buy the sd version.

This is a really great game, you would have to be crazy to pass this up for a buck. Also, Tentacle and Fire Busters just came out this week, they too are great games for a buck.

If you happened to be an early adopter and lost a buck on this sale, I feel for you, but the developer has chosen to be nice and now make the game universal and also is adding more levels to the game. But I can understand if there is any frustration with it.

I had posted some screenshots from the hd version from the main thread from my new ipad. Swipe left and right to see the pictures.

These pictures weren't really posted to be screenshots but for something else but I am really busy this weekend so don't have time to put up some really good ones but take a look. Also check out the main thread, remember to swipe left/right for more pictures on my link.

Highly, highly, highly recommended!

I have the impulse to buy the HD version, but am I correct that the HD only benefits those with the new iPad?
I have an iPad 2 and an iPhone 4S. This HD version wouldn't really benefit me, right?
