I own the iPhone version and I like it but I am a little thrown off by the pricing of this. I rarely mention pricing but $6.99 seems pretty steep.

Are there a lot of new features?

I downloaded this and to be fair I wish I hadn't doesn't seem to be any new features from the iPhone version I have . Also the graphics don't look if they have been improved any they look like they have been upscaled from the iPhone . Also I can't understand if it's listed as universal why are we being charged again if we already own the the original .

Seems to be a bit of a trend at the minute Babo Crash as just been put as HD and universal but we are expected to pay for it again . I can understand if it's been released as an iPad game in it's own right .

Wow, extremely disappointed and feeling a bit ripped off.


I am a big fan of the original game, and when I saw this release, i got really excited.
Then seeing it is universal being sold at the same time as the old one, I assumed hd would prove retina resolution.

I don't know why they wouldn't want to use the retina technology, but this looks pretty crummy on my iPod 4 (at least the marbles and menus look like crap, backgrounds are ok)

I was hoping for some better results on my iPad, which the game doesn't look like thhe screen shots...crappy marbles and menus once again.

The cherry on top is that the icon in iTunes looks like it has a resolution of about 50 x 50' huge blobs of pixels.

This was just a very non-descriptive high priced un professional effort.


Retina support and better iPad graphics could save this game, and m iTunes score would reflect that
