I just downloaded this and while it seems awesome, it feels unfinished. It doesn't have iPhone 5 screen support and there are numbers on the top right corner that seem to be data or something. Please fix these issues and the game gets 5 stars from me thanks!

So no widescreen support and a frame rate counter knock an otherwise 5 star game down to 1? Nice...

This is a cool, albeit freakin' weird game. Unfortunately I hit a bug that stopped me from continuing when I completed the first level. I tapped on the shop and the bonus level started with graphical overlays for a totally different scene. Also, no native support for retina iPad. With a few tweaks, will be awesome

It's tagged as a universal app, but the graphics are totally pixelated on a non-retina ipad (it's just a scaled iphone version), nonetheless it's a funny diversion.

I have found this game to be refreshing, I have enjoyed the unique gameplay mechanic and the hilarious Frenchesque humor is excellent. It plays well on both my ipad2 and my 3GS yes, on iPad2 it seems a bit pixel-y but it works well.
