Finally, a game "inspired" by SRW for iOS?

Looks like a HD version has been out for some time now.

Anyone TOFTT?

Really nice UI. Hard to make stats and numbers appealing, but it's very pretty.
I'll be waiting for impressions though, as I've been burnt by these types of games before.

The iPad version is great -- one of the best RPGs in the App Store. A single playthrough is about 30-40. (I've put almost 20 hrs already and nowhere near finished.) Needless to say, at this price it's a crazy bargain.

And yes, I'm double dipping just to show my support for the dev.

Games like this can be a little difficult to control with the touch screen. Obviously it's difficult to compare these games that only cost a few dollars with the big DS titles like Advance wars.

EDIT: Just noticed the iPad thread as a tonne of impressions, I'll go through that one!
