I just tried some of the lite version, not bad. I bought the full $.99 and Warner Bros. gotta be good enough for a buck.

I have the one by mobile games and it's pretty good. Wonder if this one is the same or better.

Tried the lite. It actually feels pretty substantial for a .99 movie tie-in. I'll post impressions on the full game later today.

Interesting how the full game (43.8mb) is almost half the size of the lite version (75.7mb).

I think the light comes with a full trailer for the film. Video=many MBs.

Just checked. The full version does indeed skip the trailer and opens up much more like a real game rather than a promo. I find that choice very encouraging.

Sorry about the double post. I intended to edit the one above.
