Looks promising but, as usual, wonder about the IAPs.

Tell me about it, I've made 15 threads today. I'm either going to get banned for spam or pass out with exhaustion!

Haha, I'm not kicking the bucket until I've played Mines of Mars at least!

I'm just about to settle into this game for the rest of the night so I'll be sure to leave impressions. I was hoping we'd get an RPG to round off tonight's releases as it's pretty much the only genre not tapped today, so I'm a happy bunny!

Definitely hoping this is a soft launch - it's borderline unplayable on my iPad 2 with the latest OS. The display will randomly stretch, rendering many of the inputs off screen. So far it's happened three times at different intervals and restarting the app has solved it but the loss of progress and frustration isn't really worth it.

Shame, it looks fairly decent despite some hilarious voice acting and iffy graphics.

Edit: The screen skewing seems to be caused by the banner ads as it happens just before one pops up. Should be an easy fix at least.
