Awesome! Looks beautiful, but if anyone has got this yet, can you elaborate on what they mean by new controls? By "direct control", do they mean you can just tap on something to interact with it as opposed to having to drag around a cursor like in the first one?

This thread appears in both iPhone games and iPad games....does that mean it is a universal app or will this be something we iPad users have to double size? And how good will that look and play?
