How is this NOT universal. It shows full screen on ipad. Either this is a new feature or now it's not universal somehow. This should definitely have the + next to the icon.

edit: ok my bad it is universal. I could have sworn it didn't show + sign when I was updating it thus the confusion.

I just bought it for the iPad. I thought it was Universal?

Game is pretty good and there are a lot of maps available for download.

I haven't played this in months... kept it on my phone for kicks... and then saw the universal update and I'm enjoying it once again on my iPad.

Sorry, but this is the game i was hoping Dominion HD would be, and it wasn't. Lux DLX is what i really wanted on the iPad. And it's a free update for me! Sorry, really happy...

The kids love playing this they'll be pleased too

The best risk type game on the AppStore for sure. I bought it several months ago for the iphone and now play it exclusively on the iPad ever since it went universal(thanks developers!).

I own all of the risk type games and this may be my least favorite. It plays fine and I like all of the dlc but I really didn't care for the look of the game. It just did not seem very polished to me.

Love the new team-up Reaper AI mode- I have yet to beat it. Great game, I've gotten lost in it for hours, especially with the massive maps (like Roman Empire 300 AD).
