There are actually 2 things this app does. 1) Record stuff and it replays it in Abe's voice. 2) One of those memorization games. Being the Oddworld fan I am, I'm tempted to get it...but I don't really know if I should.

EDIT: Found this:

If I knew this would look great on iPad retina I'd buy it just to support the devs and because I freakin' love Abe. One of the most underrated game characters of all time.

Abe from Oddworld! Where you been, man? Long time! Def would like to see a whole game here! I don't waste good money for sound effect apps or ones that repeat what you say supposedly sounding like some character only to still sound just like you actually. Pass....

This reminds me of when original games could find a market on consoles, and didn't require a 40+million dollar budget to succeed. This app also reminds me of all that's wrong with the video game industry as it stands today.

Despite my love of all things Oddworld, this doesn't look good. If anything, it should've been free. I'm also not sure of the legality here. I don't think this is an official app, is it?

Really? This? It's a bit of a cheeky cash-in, but there's still an element of fun and a game involved. As far as cash-ins go, this is about as inoffensive as it gets.
