Oh my...what the hell? Bought!!!

EDIT: Just for the record, I've never heard of this (I think) and I absolutely refuse to watch the trailer until I try the game myself. Those screenshots and app description...I don't think I've ever spent $6 so blindly, so quickly.

I highly recommend the PC version too, and you can get it pretty cheap right now.

Agreed. Steam sales. ouch!

This is one of my most played games. Real pick-up-and-go style. But, on a smaller screen I'd be concerned about controls - the action does get "rather" busy later with a lot on screen. Maybe the iPad screen is good, but I want to know about iPhone screen. Anyway?
