Ooh, thanks for the post Sanuku, much appreciated.

Linx, I'm not -entirely- sure (I wrote the original PC/Mac versions but I'm only sort of nodding a few times at Jeff over the iPad ports) but I think we'll be launching at the bottom end and maybe working up later, see how it goes.

We both want to keep it affordable and neither of us are in it to get rich quick or owt so yeah, cheap!

There should be an iPod/iPhone version to follow soon enough too, the game is originally built for 1280x720 and running on a beefy PC so Jeff's having to do a lot of work on that to get it still looking great and playing great at a reduced size and on smaller devices. Really looking forward to seeing to that myself given I don't personally have an iPad.

Cheers for the interest! I'm still grinning at seeing it running myself, y'know?

Right, so we're nearly go. Approved by Apple, going to sort out a launch date and stuff later today.

In the meantime, here's a quick vid of me having a run through of it this morning.

It's awesome. It's also the most 80's thing I have ever beheld.
