What do you guys think? Is it a rip off to charge $7.99 for it at launch?

Definitely a rip-off, I paid $7 for all the content in the iPhone version, and I don't think that making HD graphics costs more than the entire production costs of the iPhone version.

Although it seems high compared to most iPhone games, $7.99 is very cheap for games on pretty much any other platform.

Although from the screenshots it looks like the same old maps. Does anyone know if there is actually new content? Or is it the exact same maps and towers, just zoomed out?

For an additional $8 I'd like to see SOME new content... I guess we'll find out on Saturday...

Read a preview and saw the description; absolutely NOTHING new besides the HD graphics. I'll see how it plays pixel-doubled, and I'll probably stick with that. Or I'll play the Creeps for iPad.

I don't know, I'm going to dig this no matter what. The extra features ARE the added screen real estate/enhanced graphics. This is going to look awesome... People underestimate how much work goes into scaling the gameplay(not just the art) for new platforms.

I can't wait to get an iPad and pick this up.

i paid 4.99 for the original, back when it first came out, and didn't even have sound

it was fun

but IMO, there are better TD games out on the platform now..
so i will not be rebuying this title...

if they offer new maps, i may pick it up if it ever goes on discount..
only because, i really just dont play this anymore..and haven't for the last 9 months...

Are the 2 latest maps included, or are they DLC?
