"One of the sharpest, funniest and solidly built games Telltale has done yet" -Destructoid

One psychic ability allows [Max] to transform into any physical object an interesting puzzle-solving device ... and since it lets Max turn into stuff like plants and bazookas, it's also super funny. Joystiq

Wield psychic powers against fearsome foes in this epic comedy adventure!

An absolutely stunning iPad app, featuring top quality visuals, fully animated 3D characters, rich full 3D environments, an original score and top quality voice acting!

+ + +

In The Devils Playhouse, Telltale's episodic game series made for iPad, an otherworldy power for controlling matter and space calls to the strongest and strangest who might wield it -- intergalactic warlords and eldritch gods, under-dwellers and scholars of the arcane.

Episode 1 The Penal Zone starts off with a bang as intergalactic gorilla invader Skunk'ape sets his sights on unhinged rabbit Max, to seize his newly discovered mysterious powers. While mastering these abilities -- future sight, teleportation, shape shifting, mind reading -- and investigating their ancient source, Freelance Police Sam & Max must fend off Skunkape and get him banished to The Penal Zone.

Getting involved in Sam & Maxs adventure with the luxurious iPad screen and the super touch-friendly presentation, players will engage directly with this world in a unique gaming experience unlike anything thats come before. One of the best looking games you'll find for the system.

Note: As a graphics rich 3D app, this game will play best if you don't have other apps running at the same time.

1. Hold down the sleep/wake button at the top of the device for a few seconds until the screen displays the message 'slide to power off.'
2. Power off the device by moving the slider.
3. Hold down the sleep/wake button again until the device powers back on.
4. When the home screen is displayed, relaunch the game.

Is the tutorial the only thing that is choppy? Or is the rest of the game the same way? The app store reviews don't look to good for this one so I've been hesitating.

I wish Taletell games would release the Tales of Monkey island series instead. Now that'd be cool.

I've been patiently waiting for the new episodes to be released. A TellTale employee on the developer's forums said that the iPad version is on a different schedule and they're putting all of their effort into optimizing and polishing upcoming episodes for the PS3/PC/Mac. They also have a patch coming soon for this episode to fix the issues.

This is the best-looking iPad game so far in my opinion, plus they already have it at what the developer calls "equivalent to medium settings on the PC'. The average netbook could barely even run this. I wonder if they could push the iPad further in the graphics department, especially since they're taking their time optimizing their engine for the iPad.

Editor at iPhone Alley - Complete re-launch coming soon!

Yeah, Ep 1 please as Lucasfilm haven't published a HD version of Ep 1, only Ep 2, and I won't play low-res, scaled crap on my iPad.

Hope so - I'll be waiting for any of these optimizations to arrive before buying this game.
