Of course, the iPad version goes on sale the very day after I buy the iPhone version... Couldn't put it on sale over Labor Day weekend like all the other Glu games, huh ?

I've also got this for the Mac, so I don't know if I'll sink in again, even though three bucks is a good price for this game.


Just couldn't do it yesterday, could ya ???

I'm an app-oholic! And there's no 12-step program...

All these casual games used to be $20 on reflexive and bigfish and many others. Then iphone came out with games for $1. However, I can't recall exactly when maybe January 2010 or maybe a couple months + or - all games dropped on bigfish to $6. Then bigfish releases their iPad games for $7. So then Mac/PC users get these games for cheaper. Well $3 for Build-a-lot 2 is definitely a fair price and I'll bite for that price. If it was $5 I'd really really want to have this though and I'd wait much longer.

Are you having crashing issues? Not getting such good reviews due to crashing.

If you experience a crash, try turning off/on your iPad and re-launching the game. Should work properly.
