Yep, retina support is there. We did TONS of optimizing in order to get file size down, which also helps with lower gen devices -- but you definitely won't notice any loss of quality. I wouldn't get too carried away with file size in general though, as lots of the size in a Gameloft game for ex is simply the large movie files and things like that.
