Glad it's out, Ive been waiting for this one.

Very first impressions : nice introduction, story seems interesting, loved the fact that you can choose your name.

However, I positively hate the font used for the text and i really want to be able to choose its size. It's set by default on a really big size and is very annoying to read.

I'll post more when I get to the minigames and deeper into the story.

Currently, it should work in 2x mode for the iPad using the iPhone compatibility mode. And, we're using all native UI Fonts, so the in-game text should be crisp. Still, we'll be updating it soon to a universal build, along with Retina Display support. Also, check your PM

@medianotzu: looking forward to hearing your impressions!

@thevagrant: glad you like the intro and player name bit. That was something we spent a lot of time on, to make sure that even something dull like entering your name is tightly integrated into the story.

Regarding the font, we actually had a lot of discussions during design about that. Later, after our tests, we found this font size to be most suitable for all age groups. However, if it's something that's annoying you that much, then it's definitely something for us to look into! We'll add this option in the next update.

@Andrey: Thanks for the wishes!
