Nope, the iPhone/iPod and iPad versions are separate. The iPad version has also hit the NZ App Store, so will be out tonight.

I'm gonna go for the iPhone version and if I really like it, I'll grab it for my iPad too.

I'll buy this for sure!

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.

I want this to be good, but I'm betting on hackneyed castle defense with lackluster gameplay and little to set it aside from the rest save for an extra large cartoon Bruce Campbell head.

But we shall see.

Been waiting for this. In Backflip We Trust...hopefully they'll deliver. Out of all today/tomorrow's releases, this is the only one I'll be getting.

It looks kinda "meh" to me but I guess once some people have played it I'll make a decision.
