    My music (korg) apps seem to be working fine since I updated to 8.0, so I'm guessing you shouldn't have anything to worry about.

    On Topic: Ok, I'm on the fence on this one. I've never heard of it until today, but from the trailer and screenshots, it looks pretty cool. Worth the 10 bucks?

    Strategy-wise, is this as deep as XCom or FFT?

    Even deeper. My favorite strategy game ever. So glad I can play this on iOS now!

    What's the final installation size? I want to make room for it.

    I might have missed it but this is Off-line right after the Ginormous Download?

    Thanks and it'll run on an iPad 2 right?

    So I'm assuming this game doesn't play well interface wise on the 5S, similar to Baldurs Gate?

    Can't take it. I gotta have it. Hopefully it plays well on my iPad 2. I don't think I have the room on my iPhone 5.

    I just finished shadowrun this morning, I was hoping this would be out in a couple weeks so that I could decompress with some more casual games from my backlog. Oh well, gonna play this now.

    Oh gosh this looks awesome. Never heard of it before. I'm gaining quite a gaming backlog now.

    This is more close to Shadowrun (as strategy and as game overall) than XCom or FFT. But keep in mind that it has a ton of strategy inside and also very emotional feeling with a great told story that put you on heroes shoes... For example i worry when i lose a well-trained soldier on xcom that i have him for many battles but in this game when someone dies it's like ''oh god no.. why?''. But if you like games like XCOM, Shadowruns, King of Dragon Pass, even Walking Dead you not gonna lose with this! At the end keep in mind for the battles that is more close to a chess game with no matter if you are cover well behind a wall etc. (aka XCOM).

    Can someone break down how the battles work? Seen the video but would appreciate the basic dynamics explained.

    Going to buy this regardless. Looks to have stunning presentation and the story looks powerful.
