That makes me kind of sad. Then again, I got the entire "Tales" collection for like $6 total on steam.

The stuttering is much improved and the interface is much more responsive but the framerate is still a little low, around 20 fps, and I don't think it will improve much with this generation of hardware.

It plays great in my opinion.

Don't know if an update is on the way that makes for iPhone or it was just a mistake altogether. Can anyone ask taletell on Facebook?

Just snagged this since it was free. Played the first part of it and found it unbearable. The low frame rates and stuttering just kill it for me. The game is playable, and I'd assume many will think it's not that bad, but stuttering and frame rate issues drive me bonkers.

Too bad. I heard lots of good things about this series. Judging from the comments in this thread, the Frame rate issues will never be addressed, so I guess I'll just be missing out on this one.

I'm playing on an iPad 1, btw. Closed everything in the multitask list and restarted the device to see if that helped, but it didn't.
