Is that a launch sale? I've never seen a 99games' game for only 99 cents.

I have to say this was a delightful game to test! A total joy with a mix of puzzles and an engaging story line.

There IS IAP for this, which could account for the price, but also realize it is TOTALLY optional - the purchases are for hints tokens if you get stuck on the puzzles. You are able to collect some along the way so it's not like it's a money pit by any means, but with only a 99 cent initial cost it does take the sting out of needing more hints (IF they are needed I repeat!)

Is this closer to a prof. layton type game or a point and click?

The closest thing to a Professor Layton game on the iPod Touch I might add. Nice mix of puzzles - some harder than others - lots of variety. Lots of scenes and interaction, lots of dialogue, lots of places to visit. This game really brings a lot of things together.

I am wondering how this game will look on the iPad. Also, will there be a universal version or an iPad version?
