I know it's not much of a price drop, but this one is definitely worth checking out, even if you've only got an iPad. It wound up in my top 25 games of last year...

Unfortunately, it didn't sell well enough to get the Universal update that the dev was wanting to do... but if you're one of the many people that doesn't have this one yet, it's one that you should seriously consider purchasing.

It looks pretty cool... not sure it's something I'd enjoy but certainly I'll consider it.

I never thought I would say this, but if it's over 99 cents, I'm not buying it unless it's universal or ipad only.

if the developer can guarantee me (right here on this forum) that an update is coming to support the iPad, I will get it right away!

I still remember back way in September or somewhere around that he said he is supporting the iPad, but we haven't seen anything from him since.

Please, I want to hear a response about an update to the iPad. I so want to get this game, but it'll look so terrible with 2X mode on the iPad.

Shame it never really took off, I'd be happier dropping the money on this if I could play on iPad.

I got this when it came out. It's really hard, and you would have to spend a ton of time with it to even gain a bit of skill at it. I don't have that kind of patience, so I deleted it. :P

...and the thing is, I thought 2x mode would look better on the Mini than on my gf's iPad 2, which I would occasionally load iphone games onto (usually when it was a big file and I was low on space, which is most of the time).

Nuh Uh. It looks worse because of the higher pixel density. Same reason, I guess, that non-retina ipad games look better on the mini than the 2.
