App description: **Awarded Apple's iPad Game of the Week!**

Get ready for zany arcade action with a unique color-matching twist! Wispin introduces a new type of gameplay that's unlike ANY other game on the app store... now in HD for iPad!

"Wispin has remained one of my favorite games since its release, and now iPad owners have the ability to experience it in a version that is tailored for their device." - Jared Nelson, TouchArcade.com Reviewer

---

The innovative "Touch Color Wheel" acts similar to a joystick - slide your thumb around to change Wispin's color on the fly. Matching an enemy's color will allow you to defeat it, but you'll have to think quickly and watch out for enemies and attacks of differing colors!

FEATURES

- Wispin HD features newly-expanded environments formatted for the iPad, and new iPad-specific control options!

- Stylized cartoon graphics and animations in beautiful High Definition!

- Two endless gameplay modes, Achievements to unlock, statistics tracking, and Game Center leaderboards!

- Wacky weapons (including bombs, arrows, and CHEESE), powerups, bonuses, and an escalating multiplier/combo system!

- Gameplay that starts slowly so all types of players can learn the ropes, but eventually progresses to be more chaotic, challenging, and super intense! (Even for advanced players)!

- Customizable game options including joystick and tilt controls!

- Color Blind and left-handed control support!
(Check the options menu)

- Your purchase helps support our Indie Development efforts and continued improvements to the game!

- It's fun on a bun!

Really slick game! I'm going to be tossing this one in the more games/favorites section in my upcoming release. Definitely worth the pennies.

Usual question, does it make sense to upgrade from the iPhone version?

Other than the main change of the larger iPad-formatted graphics, it's ultimately the same gameplay - we just focused our efforts on making sure everything translated well to the bigger screen/hardware. The levels feature larger/expanded play areas (rather than being directly scaled up) giving you more move to maneuver around, and the entirety of the canyon and glacier levels are now always visible at once without camera panning. The controls were adjusted to work better with the ipad which includes new positioning of all GUI elements and new iPad-exclusive custom options for placing the controls anywhere on the screen you want and also a new "floating joystick" option that can be turned on or off. Finally, the game has its own separate leaderboards.

So basically, if you enjoy Wispin on the iPhone and also enjoy playing games on the bigger iPad screen, you'd enjoy Wispin HD. Hope that helps!
