Not the first one I have, but definitely the first one I'll play. Bought ravensword for 99cents just for the sake of it. Also snagged a promo code for aralon from twitter (dont tell CMG though, I lurked the code and never replied :P). But never got around playing either of those coz I'm not really a fan of RPGs.

Cant wait for Gears to hit the US store. Definitely grabbing it as soon as it does

Ha ha i totally agree ! Even the 'expensive' iOS games are nothing really. Kids dont know how lucky they are ! (Starts going on about how expensive games were in the 80's !).

Anyway roll on midnight, this is an instant purchase for me but these games i have to use tilt controls, not the same otherwise

I don't know where you live, but that's the cost of a good sandwich here in Houston already :].

As a huge fan of Crescent Moon Games I'm looking forward to this one. I used to love the ball-rolling sections of Metroid Prime and this reminds me of that big time, as well as games like 'Dark Nebula' which I also love.

This looks like it's going to be good - well done to Josh and all the others at Crescent Moon! You'll be getting my 59p come midnight tonight...

Forget the United Nations - the AppStore can bring us all together on a global scale, as we all, as day dawns in whatever country we live in, get to experience the wonder that is a new game on our iOS devices...
