Shoulda waited, I guess...

Aw, geez... I just bought this for the iPod just a couple weeks ago...

Can anyone tell me if this is worth a buy-over, or am I okay staying with the original ? Any input appreciated!

I'm an app-oholic! And there's no 12-step program...
IAPs = I Ain't Purchasing, son !

I own the iPhone version but haven't played much. Ido remember there being some movements that were kind of a pain on the iPad. Is this iPad version the same control set up or is it better suited for the iPad?

Good stuff. With the amount I've spent in the App Store this month - let alone, 2010! :P - it's nice to get something of this calibre for free.

It's today's UK iTunes 12 Days Of Christmas special so I expect the drop to last a day only. As it's Gameloft and very large I decided to pass on this one.
