Hello all!

First off, I'm the Games Producer at Adult Swim. I've been out for the last two weeks getting married and then honeymooning so I didn't post about it until now but an iPad version of Amateur Surgeon has been on the App Store since launch. Wanted to post this and also solicit any comments/feedback you might have - we've already identified a few small bugs but I wanted to get your feedback on the app overall as well. Thank you!

My only feedback is that you should have made it universal instead of double dipping on folks who already have the iPhone game

Didn't know there was an hd version of this...I always give good feedback, but just got the email from iTunes and I think I've been spending a bit too much on iPad apps...guess I got a little too excited about my new device. Enjoyed the iPhone game though, so would have loved to check this out. Maybe a promo?

Contrats on the marriage.

I hear ya. Thanks for the feedback. It's a tough question and one we're looking at closely. There are a couple considerations that make it a bit more complicated an issue than it seems on its face.

I don't know if it can be done, but I think the best way to go about the problem(which a lot of developers say is file size) is to have a universal version for people with ipads and a separate one for people with iphones who don't want the bigger file. Developers could than chose to charge more for the universal one if they wanted.

This is kind of unrelated but is there any chance of getting robot unicorn attack for the ipad? Its such an awesome game and I feel that it that it would work perfectly on the ipad (tap on left side to jump ride side to dash).

I LOVED the iPhone version, but really don't have much of a reason to get this one and play through it again. That being said, if you've never tried AS, grab this sucker! It's a sick and twisted (and very funny I might add) ride through a back-alley surgeon's operating room.

Now are you guys planning to bring the free Christmas pack to the iPad as well?

I'm a big fan of AS so I picked this up for the iPad. It's probably the easiest to play of the 3 versions I've tried (Flash, iPhone, iPad) as the big touch screen seems custom made for this game. Even though I paid for it I still think $5 is a bit high when you consider it's a buck on the iPhone, and aside from the larger screen there's nothing new. But I'm a sucker for games like this.
