No problems here. Try restarting your phone/ipod and re-downloading it.

How much space you got left on your device?

hrm. I noticed apps download and when they install they seem to uncompress.. often I need 3 times more space than the app itself. Try clearing up a few hundred megs if you can and try again.

Because of the size of the game, I think the dev should consider posting a note on the APP description that says users will require approx. 800 megs to download / install it.

I had one gig of space left on my first gen and had no problems I think it's your space man or possibly restart your router
