Oh really? What the heck, I'll get it. I'm not strong enough to resist this, especially if I ever get an iPad 2. Might as well buy it now

If you bought the regular iPhone version and use it on your iPad (with retinapad), then DO NOT BUY THIS!

It looks terribly jaggy and runs at a lower frame rate than the iPhone version.

I've been playing the iPhone version (with retinapad) non-stop for a week now and it is super smooth, has no jaggies and overall looks and runs better than this new, expensive version which is supposedly built for iPad.

As I said in my iTunes review after wasting $13 AU... either Firemint has crippled this version to make the iPad 2 version look better or they don't know how to program for iPad.

I love you guys, especially being fellow Aussies and don't want to sound harsh, but the reality is, your original iPhone version is still better on iPad (albeit when forced into higher res with a homebrew app).

Did you power off your ipad before you played it?
