First in before "instabuy" storm!

Finally, it is here. I really don't know how much hours I've put in the first. Great game. I hope this is even better.

Hi, you seemed to be lost on the Internets.
This is TouchArcade, where 2$ for a game is too much, 5$ is an outrage, and 10$ or more is putting sugar in their car tanks whilst killing puppies.

Well, the first game has over 5.600 Posts in this forum, if this counts...
Yes, a really great game!

Exactly what I thought. Elsa - the last 2 years were fantastic in terms of iOS gaming. I can name at least 20-30 excellent games instantly.

Sure there were decent games released and some good ports. But nothing exceptional. My list of top 8 has been unchanged since January 2013 (release of H&C). This is a very subjective opinion, so there's really no point arguing about it.

Can't wait to get my hands on this, hopefully I'll have some free time this weekend.
