This is pretty fun app I just made a review under Gsubalwajie (idk if i spelled it right). I'll say it again it is fun, graphics are good, cotrol are beautiful, plenty of content. But nothing that stands out.

Hey, there is a good chance that there will be an HD/iPad game if we can think of additional features that would make it more fun on an iPad. It would also be universal so people who purchased the original version wouldn't have to pay twice.

If you have any suggestions for what an iPad version should have beyond what the current iPhone version has, feel free to throw them out there.

great to hear! Here's my relatively simple suggestions. instead of just using higher textures (which should be done obviously for the ipad and iphone4), i think the ipad version specifically would make better use of the extra space by the following extra features;

- bigger house (but not in a way that make it take up proportionally much more space, but instead, having more windows/etc from which additional weapons can be fired (and bought for obviously).

- the attack zone should be wider, so that more time is given to attack the extra aliens attacking, this would make it a little more hectic.

- add a nuke if there isn't one already

i think these 3 things would make the ipad version funner than the iphone version, but not sure if they would be doable and still keep a single universal binary, might be too big since it'd really almost a completely different game.

thought of another one, being able to buy a camper trailer to put besides the house giving the player another window or two for additional weapons, and perhaps kids inside the trailer to help out

it could be optional obviously, i.e. an ipad player could still play the standard game as is with just higher textures, but might be too much of a mess to deal with programming wise.

what do you think?
