I'm hoping other tell tale games go on sale I just finished this game last night, it does have it fair share of technical issues but the humor and gameplay is truly awesome!

How long is the game? One of the reviews said it's like 20 minutes long...

o.O

Comparing that to Monkey Island's fairly extensive storyline... 20 minutes, even at $1, is hard to swallow. I can't believe it's that short.

Plays like shit on the iPad 1.
Stutters all the time. Crapiest port ever.

Btw 20mins is the prologue ..... Then wait till the end f the titles for the game to start.
Still so stuttering .....

On another note, this game is buttery smooth on the iPad 2...not even a hint of stuttering, and no errors or crashes like I got on the iPad1...it's still very playable on the old iPad though. 99 cents is a great buy.

Maybe I'm just not that good at these games, but 20 minutes seems way exaherayed to me, I finished it in a few hours. Maybe I can do it rushing through the game now that I know what to do.

Im not the best at adventure/puzzle games but asuming your better than me Id say at least a few hours (3-4 min). I loved it and now I really want to play the next episode, so much that Im looking at the rest on steam.
