For the sale price I'm going to give it a try. I loved the first one back on the PSP. Hopefully they fix this one soon.

Bought it at 4.99... played for a few minutes, graphics are terrible on the iPhone 4... everything is super-pixelated ( and not in a cool retro way ). I'll keep it on the phone and hope for an eventual retina update.

Didn't seem that bad to me, but I also have the pc version

Still no true retina support?

In the current state is it good enough for the new price on iPad at least? I've had this on my watch list but I've been burned a few times recently (Minecraft World Explorer)

Graphics are not bad at all on touch 4th gen. They look good, now PQ1 looks like hell

I'm just spoiled playing so many retina games... sooooooo crisp... I loved the original puzzle quest both on iOS and PSP... this one doesn't look worse then the original... again, I just got used to pixel perfection in my games heh...

It is almost perfect and definitely worth $5 if you have an iPad. My main device is an iPod Touch 4G and it isn't nearly as good on the small screen. Everything is generally blurry and the buttons are often way to small to tap with a finger. The core gameplay is there but it isn't the pleasure it is on the iPad.

The port of the original PQ (done by a different dev AFAIK) was definitely lacking so it would be severely awesome to see PQ2 get the treatment it deserves. I really hope they upgrade it for Retina screens; the iPad version is running on the same processor and graphics chips at a higher resolution and it runs quite well...

The bug with the conversations/quests getting cut off when you tap to continue is bugging the hell out of me. I may shelve this until it gets fixed. Like WTF?

I've heard this complaint one too many times. Not gonna pull the trigger despite the great sale price.
