One day this and baldurs gate will be mine, until that day arrives I will continue to wish for universal ( although I know it would be difficult with the on screen buttons )

Where's that genie when you need him/her

It's a sad world we live in these days when good, honest developers have to add this box quote as a selling feature!

That being said, I had an amazing time with Avadon 1, bought all the other iPad releases from Jeff Vogel's Spiderweb, and I am super excited for getting my hands on this tonight.

Share your experiences when you get it - namely what has changed in terms of UI for the iPad. Not looking for spoilers

This really means I have an almost endless supply of excellent turn-based RPGs for my ipad.

I'm still going through Avadon: The black fortress, and have yet to play Avernum: Escape from the Pit and Avernum 6.

This is awesome! If it's anything like the first avadon, it'll be worth every penny, if not WAY MORE than asking price.

It really wouldn't. We have enough complex RGPs, turn-based as well as realtime (From KOTOR to Bastion, and TBS-RPGS with far more complex battle mechanics, such as FFT and XCOM, at least two of which were said to be impossible to port to the iPhone when they were released for the iPad, but worked wonderfully for the smaller format and sold very well) for the iPhone to know that just about any RPG port is feasible.

It is a shame Jeff Vogel insists on iPad ports only in spite of this, but he does have some other reasonable arguments against a universal version. Though his foremost, smartphone pricing and how this relates to his regular desktop prices, might be void and null, since I think there is a good chance enough would purchase a deep iPhone RPG like this even for the iPad price tag (and not only Spiderweb Software fans since almost 20 years back, like me ).

It just won't work for IPhone...
Some things are tiny on an Ipad due to the huge amount of items..
maybe it works on an iPhone if you have a magnifier on top of your screen lol
