Back in October, we were pleasantly surprised with Bring Me Sandwiches!! [99¢], a new platformer from Adult Swim Games and Grumpy Face Studios. First of all, any platformer on iOS lives and dies by how good its controls are, and Bring Me Sandwiches!! delivered on this front with several great options for controlling your character. Secondly, it took the basics of platforming and mixed in a dose of Katamari-like progressive collecting, which proved to be a really great addition to the genre. Finally, Bring Me Sandwiches!! had a truly excellent visual style that felt like it could have been ripped straight from a show on the Cartoon Network.

Yesterday, Bring Me Sandwiches!! got its first update, making it a Universal app and providing some other minor fixes and tweaks. All of the same content from the iPhone/iPod touch version of the game is available on the iPad, though sadly there is no transferring of game saves between multiple devices. The game plays great on the larger screen, and like the original version, gives you half the lower screen for movement and the other half for jumping (when using touch controls). This is important to me as I typically find the controls in platformers on the iPad to be awkwardly placed, and here you can basically just use anywhere that feels the most comfortable on the lower part of the screen.

If you're the owner of an iPad that you've been itching to get Bring Me Sandwiches!! on, now is a great time to drop your hard earned dollar on the new Universal version.
