We got a look at the first episode and came away impressed -IGN

"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!

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.

Nice

Am I right to assume that even with the recorded playback issues and unliklihood of an update, folks feel this is a decent purchase, especially at $1.99? I take it that Sam & Max does improve after a full shutdown, like most complained about "it doesn't work!" games....

Got to love the reboot button. Solves many ills!

It's a great game.

Reboot before playing this game every time, the framerate drops will be very minimal once you do.

Um... not sure. Can it damage your device if the game freezes and gets stuck on the screen for like 5 minutes before the idevice restarts itself (cuz you pressed all the buttons of course)?

The game itself seems like fun but it froze on me right after the credits (even though I rebooted my device) and then even hitting the home button didn't do anything. I didn't save and it sent me right back to the middle of the 5 minutes worth that I did get to play through. As soon as you get past this small amount of gameplay/tutorial, it shows you the credits and then I guess the real game begins. But I never made it there cuz it froze during the credits and reset my half of my progress. I don't like seeing my device freeze and am annoyed to find my progress reset so I'm going to hold off for playing for a bit. I know the chances for an update are low so I'm not really sure what to do with the game.
