"Compatible with iPad."

Again, the classic question: is this compatible with the iPad 1? What does "iPad" mean in this sentence? So excited. :F

$7? What a freaking great price for the game. Really liked this on Steam. It adds quite a bit to the traditional TBS to say the least.

It's a bit of a mixed bag, nothing is overtly low quality but there is a telltale blur on some UI elements and some fonts, while other elements are pixel perfect and crisp.

Also the expansion Red is listed as coming soon in the store.
