Don't get your hopes up too high.

The PSP version is about 580 MB minimum, multi-language up to over 1 GB. So now the iPhone version should have with iPhone-Graphics-normal and Retina-graphics included two different graphics sets.

And with that only 359 mb? That says the NZ store..

I bet there are many levels missing and you can only play 40 % or so of the game

EDIT: So universally means iPad also included: Graphic files (ipad)+(iPhone)+(retina) + rest files << PSP graphic files + rest

Never ever the same amount of levels as in the PSP version
