For my part, I love this collection. Code Mystics have outdone themselves.
The developer isn't one of those Activision linked companies? Any chance of a Legend compilation just like this one?

I can only speak to the first question. Code Mystics is an emulation focused development house, and spiritual successor to Digital Eclipse. Their relationship to Activision is as a contractor, the same thing that they previously did for Atari on their arcade app. Activision owns all the Infocom trademarks and IP, and is the publisher of this Code Mystics-developed app.

Sorry those costs a Buck Extra. I`m unsure if there is anyone really interested into those, or am I wrong?

You're wrong. But I already bought it, so no worries here.

To be able to play Star Trek Pinball, Wishbringer AND Leather Goddesses of Phobos again within a 24-hour period ... life is good.

(Yeah, that's a pretty ... odd trio when I sit down and write it, isn't it? Heh.)

Only the Invisiclues cost extra, but I feel that it was totally worth it as it even duplicates the invisible text that just adds to the experience. The feelies, manuals and 3D Gameboxes are included with the full game IAP.

Working on Seastalker now as it is rated as the easiest. Really love the feature that ranks these games according to difficulty level.

Took the plunge and I love it. Everything is just implemented so well, although I found the frequent pop-up tips (obviously meant to ease novices into the genre) quite annoying. The digital feelies, far from being a whimsical extra feature, are amazing for those of us who used to own these games in their original form. They're like concentrated shots of nostalgia. The only downside to this, is now I need to buy a Bluetooth keyboard.

I had the invisiclues back in the day for a couple of the games and they were great - allowed for very gentle nudges when you needed them.
