Current rank is 2 stars. Wondering if maybe the controls didn't transfer over well? I'll have to give it a try tonight.

I remember a while ago this was released on iPhone (under a different name).
It was free, but as you can guess, it just didn't work because it was to fiddly to press the tiny buttons. Maybe it will work better on the iPad.

For some reason it's showing that it hasn't been rated for me.

I've been messing around with the game a little bit and it definitely wasn't optimized for the iPad...seems like a direct port of the unix version and even looks as it would under X Windows (Unix/Linux)...as so, you have to push the little x on the top left of each window, and the icons on the top of the playing field could have been bigger. It's definitely playable and the game itself is good so far, but an increased font size and some bigger icons would do this game justice.
