    idk, doesn't look v good. I'd been bitten by flashy big-name-driven games like this before. I'm not gonna fall for it again.

    Next!

    Saw that earler. It's basically the same as the mobile version. IGN gave it around 7.5 or something.

    Well, there is a lite version so not much risk involved...so Abbott said to Costello. :rolleyes:

    Btw, the game only works on iPhones and not the iPod Touch.

    Everything Digital Chocolate makes is AWESOME

    This app doesn't look that awesome, but since it's Digital Chocolate, it probably is.. but it really doesn't look it

    Who's on First is my all time favorite.


    I'm really liking the game so far

    Who's on First is classic. I still the various movies where they battled some of the monsters of the day such as Frankenstein, Mummy and The Werewolf.

    I can't play the game on my iPod...oh well, guess I'll have to stick with 24 on the tube.

    I really have no idea. I d/l the free version, and it said it wasn't compatible. I don't think there's any voice activated functionality.

    I think the default drop-down menu is iPhone only.

    They just need to edit the AppStore game and select the option for both the iPhone and iPod Touch. :p

    Simple change really, from what I've heard.

    I'm not sure it's as simple as that, unfortunately. It doesn't look like just an admin error by the developer selecting iPhone only - it actually says iPhone only in the description too.

    I hope they can sort it out so 24 works on the Touch too - it's very annoying to miss out on what looks like a good game, and I love the TV show. I'm not sure what technical reason there would be excluding Touch users from this game - it will certainly cost Digital Chocolate some sales.

    Don't worry, it is normal for that to happen, it really is because they selected iPhone only in the drop-down menu. Once they select the option for both iPhone and iPod Touch, that text will update to say "Compatible with iPhone and iPod Touch". :)


    Edit: I'm actually not 100% sure it is a drop-down menu, but for this error to happen as often as it does - I'd assume it is as it makes the most logical sense. It could very well be a radio button. ^ ^

    Thanks for the optimism Donburns. I hope it is just an admin error from the developer and that I'll soon be able to get this game :)
