Dead Space iPad 1 vs iPod 4

As the title says, is either better than the other? Or are they pretty much the same, graphics, frame rate, controls etc wise? Thanks

Havnt tried the iPod 4 one but the iPad version has perfect graphics and framerate, but i guess it would be easier to control it on a iPod because some things require you to tap or swipe from the center of the screen and rotating your device.

I have an iPod 4 and haven't had a single frame-rate issue or anything. I'm pretty sure there the same except the iPod/iPhone version has retina of course.

The iPad version control works very nicely and seems quite well thought of. The part when you must turn the device is a bit awkward, but the overall feeling is good. Much better than most of shooters out there...
