Be wary that it's out in some countries but it seems to be unavailable in others. I'm sure it's due to the Appstore's weird release schedule as of late and that it's going to show up everywhere in no time.

Seems to be out in the US at least. And really, I'm just glad it's out regardless of the regional stuff. There have been releases that got tanked at the last second due to one issue or other.

This looks great. Been looking forward to it. With a bit of luck the ipa trick to iPhone might work on this. Fingers crossed.

I have had this in my Steam watch list forever. I kept putting it off because I just don't play on my PC the way I used to. I do however play games on my iPad all the time so this is an instabuy for me.

Out on the PH Appstore

Just bought and installed it, played for about 5 minutes. Looks and feels pretty perfect. In fact, better as the touchscreen controls are even better than clicking with a mouse. DAMN been wanting this on the iPad forever (also have it on Steam and my PSVita).

I LOVE it on PC, especially with the dlc. So I am gonna cry because this is iPad only. It's a bit misleading to call it pocket edition. Heck, what pockets do you need to fit an iPad in?

Hi, you seemed to be lost on the Internets.
This is TouchArcade, where 2$ for a game is too much, 5$ is an outrage, and 10$ or more is putting sugar in their car tanks whilst killing puppies.
