The HD version its universal now... this is the iPhone-only version. Been waiting to play confortably this one for a long time, since I saw it so many years ago. Instant Buy. Actually, should be a must buy for everyone with an iDevice. Buy this game.

This was my first purchase game on my iPad. Lovely game though I openly admit to having to resort to looking up puzzle answers more than once!

I think I read somewhere that HD becomes universal but maybe I'm wrong. Should be an update tonight to make it so... if its really true...

the DAY it came out, bought it on my ipad 2, and was already getting it to run on my old iphone 4 (plist editing). but couldn't go far because of UI restrictions (could not access the lowest part of the screen.) OOOh I remember that gem when the devs were saying "only the ipad 2 can run this beast". yeah right.

The iPad version was one of the first ipad-only games i bought upon getting my first ipad, and it's stilll treasured as one of the best games on it.

I'll definitely get it tonight if it runs on an iPod Touch 4. I always heard good things about this game on the iPad. I should check the stores to see if it's able to be downloaded.
