The game hooks into exactly the same OpenFeint leaderboards as the iPhone version, so we couldn't change anything such that one or the other device had the advantage. The metallic stuff down the sides is to make sure the aspect ratio stays the same. So mainly it's some HD stuff, ramped up the particle count, more trails on screen - it all looks very pretty.

Bombardiers Guild XL ($1.99) and Bombardiers Guild XL FREE, both approved for April 3rd.

Heh, there were a handful of Bombardiers Guild XL FREE downloads yesterday.

Were the shops open at midnight on the east coast?
