Er.....i have not tried it yet,but i definately accept that pc games do not turn up on the ipad because you start a program and press the convert button!

The sim city version that ea is selling is about 10 years old and costs 5 times the price.
Learn to program and then complain.

And bought. Seems really good. Not sure if I should play In timed or relaxed mode. Not sure if it makes a difference to how many stars you unlock etc. Anyone else playing it ?

Hi there! Stars are awarded in both the modes. As you know, the time taken to complete each mission is calculated in the form of days. In Timed Mode, you must complete each mission within 3 days or it will have to be restarted. In Relaxed Mode, you can take any number of days to complete a mission. Hope this answers your question!

It's probably more along the lines of: "Two years ago there wasn't a worthwhile and capable iDevice system with enough units sold to the demographic target group to justify porting/developing the game to/for it."

I haven't picked up yet, mostly because it is 2.99 and the above linked review mentions that the game is too easy. Has the iPad version been beefed up in difficulty? (Of course 2.99 is ridiculously cheap, in the larger picture, but somehow iPad/iPhone gaming makes you pretty stingy pretty fast, even if you come from the PC platform and were used to paying much more for games.)
