Looks a bit pricey at the moment. Any comments or anyone seen a video?
Perhaps a lite version is in the pipeline?

Hello bastband.
There won't be lite version in the nearest future - we have too much work with the second episode.
If you would like to read some impressions, there are some reviews of iPhone version: AppStore Link
I would be happy to answer your future questions.

Regards,
The Moonwalls.

I'm sorry, but $3.99 is not pricey for an iPad game. It's only a dollar more than the iPhone version. If that seems pricey, where in the world did you get the cash for an iPad, paper route? lol

I don't like your comment. The tone is rather inappropriate, while even the intended point would only be correct if after buying an iPad, this was the only game the person you're addressing had the intention of buying.

To answer your question, which really is my business alone, I do have a second job, from which I take funds for my iPad.

$3.99 US = EUR 2.83

The price of a regular movie ticket here in the Netherlands is EUR 9.00

It is your business (and I'm sorry) if you can't afford it but I find it hard to imagine that in this day and age that anyone over the age of 10 can call $3.99 US pricey and keep a straight face.

But then again YMMV.

Strange how my original comment on the game in this topic, which was my own and mine only, opinion, has changed into a pointed attack on me.

Well, you are the expert on inappropriate tone, Gabrien.

Joke withdrawn, bastband. I apologize, if you took it to heart, but that's all it was.

The thrust of the statement, however, still stands; it is my opinion that $4 not too pricey for iPad app.
