abutova's comments:
Let the mayhem and hilarity begin!
Hamlet is probably the most extraordinary game for iPad you've seen lately. It's an old school styled quest with highly amusing graphics, great humor, extraordinary story line and really difficult puzzles.
Honesty, Hamlet is not a long game. But try to beat all the levels without Googling the walkthrough (I promise you'll want to do that!), and you'll have lots of fun!

Also available for iPhone.

I second that - this might be a must-have for me, even if the developerss admit it's a short game ! It's just quirky enough to be really intriguing !

I'm an app-oholic! And there's no 12-step program...

After playing through the lite version, I went ahead and picked up the full. I love the style and humor! The game reminds me of Mystery Mania.

Probably an outcast on this one but I adore classic literature and I have fallen in love with this game and concept. One has not lived until they have read Shakespeare's Coriolanus, The Merry Wives of Windsor, and Love's Labour's Lost (pretty much toss in anything from Plato to Shakespeare.)
