I've been saying this for a while now! They don't get it, do they? I totally agree! No way to free up that kind of space. Would gladly fork over the cash for more space on my device out of the box. Thumbs down with the Cloud and their money grab for 'renting' space!!! The squeaky wheel gets the oil, so if MORE people bitched, maybe Apple would hear us eventually.
As far as this game is concerned, though, how could the devs NOT use that creepy Hollywood monster Kim Kardashian? Yuk!!! She scares ME!

Yep same here. As good as this looks I'm never going to find that kind of space for one game.

Not sure why they're calling it "Hollywood Monsters" when that's actually a completely different game. It's called "The Next BIG Thing" everywhere else.

Has anybody tried this out on an ipod touch 4th gen? I'd like to get it but am seriously getting tired of buying apps only to have them not work with my device (I'm looking at you, developers of BASTION!)

Recently kept going thru the same issue, now got my new iPad 3! No more issues, except would like more space than 64GB. Good for now...

I decided to go ahead and give it a try. In the description itself, not the left sidebar with compatible models, it said it was compatible with 4th gen ipt so im gonna try it. If not, while I'll be disappointed, I'll just try it when I get a 5th gen

Given it an hour and I absolutely love it so far! Looks amazing on the ipad. Really (positively) messed up characters. Hope it stays as good the whole way through.

Keeping my fingers away from the hints button, seems to be making things a bit too easy (not that the game has offered any really big challenges yet). I still like having it there though, simply dont have the time to be stuck for hours as in my monkey island youth.

I've had a few crases (ipad 3, 5.1.1), but the game loads lightning fast and saves your progress for every action (so I've never lost more than 30 seconds of playtime). Far from game breaking, would like to see it fixed in future updates, though.

Price is ridiculously small. How come this game cost 30$ on pc or mac and only 5$ on ipad? Is the graphics or sound worse compressed? The file size on mac app store is 4.91 GB. On ios it's 1.64 GB. If I buy it on the ipad will I get the same content as if I bought pc/mac? Is it a choice between cheap half-ass version and expensive full experience one?

It's because of a bunch of cheapskate Appstore customers.

Hi, you seemed to be lost on the Internets.
This is TouchArcade, where 2$ for a game is too much, 5$ is an outrage, and 10$ or more is putting sugar in their car tanks whilst killing puppies.
