Telltale really needs to optimize/update its existing iOS titles (Sam and Max, Wallace and Grommitt) first before I'll buy from them again.

I'm not a huge adventure fan but this is pretty good. Sam & Max is pretty good as well.

Someone news site said this was for iPhone too. It's a shame it's not.

This is better than Wallace and Gromit, which is better than Sam and Max. Hopefully they'll now release the rest of the other series since they seem to have learned how to make them work on the iPad.

To be fair, the app description does say universal on it.
