I am a total Playrix junkie. I have all their titles. I've played Rise of Atlantis through 3 times. How is this different? It looks VERY much the same.

I believe it is the same, except this is made for the iPad. I enjoy Playrix games, too! Have a few on my computer and iOS. For anyone who does not already have this, it is a good Match-3 game.

So is it an IAP?

I'm really hoping it's NOT the same, since they've already released Rise of Atlantis HD for the iPad, and now this one is also exclusively for the iPad. Anyone know what the differences are? If any?

And yes, I would bet it's IAP for $4.99.

Rise of the Atlantis HD is one of the very best Match-3 games out there, and I'm a total Match-3 junkie.

Here is a quote from the developer (or the company representative) when he/she talked about The Rise of Atlantis HD:

So "Call of Atlantis HD" is not the same game, but part of the "Atlantis Match-3" trilogy, and the last one in the series. In fact, the description in the first post did mention this, albeit not very direct.

Oh...oops. My earlier post I did not realize you said, "Rise". I thought you were wondering if this is the same as the iPhone version of the game. I can't totally remember what major differences there are between 'Call' and 'Rise'.

US release tonight?

Love Playrix games too. I have them all on my Touch but none for my iPad, which I just got today. I am hoping to get COA for my iPad.

This is great news. Looking forward to playing it on my iPad.

I just visited the NZ App Store and it looks like there are no IAPs. Take a look for yourself. It's probably free at first to generate interest before they whack a price on it...so get it as soon as it becomes available. We're still waiting for it to show up here on the UK App Store.

Bloody New Zealanders, they get to try all the apps first + they got all the lamb - I love lamb

Bloody thing IS IAP. Not sure why it's not showing up properly on iTunes or the App Store - must be some glitch as the reviews aren't working properly either.

It was too good to be true
