    I bought only TftB so far, but I'll also buy Papers, Please and Bertran Fiddle.

    I have the iPad 3, but I'll only play it at night.

    It's a fantastic game but 3 hours is really not enough unless they release the other episodes soon.

    It's (usually, baring any delays) one episode per month.

    Thanks Sanuku, your videos are the ones who tip me into buying a game or not. Better than most reviews!

    Not a big deal. I probably could have also mentioned at least that I did enjoy playing it very much and I love how much Rhys and Fiona manage to handle in such a short among of Gameplay Length.

    Those two hours of Gameplay never felt cheap or stretched at all and I did enjoy every single moment of it.

    I`m more then sure that all those that already felt that Games like Framed or Monument Valley were too short will probably feel the same way about the recent two Telltales Games :(

    Its still 3 hours for just 5 dollars !

    Its a shame though the first episode isnt free like the Walking Dead was (i think!), i really want to try and see how this does on my older ipad or iphone. If i knew it ran fine i would buy this ASAP

    The first episode of The Walking Dead wasn't free at launch. They just made it free much later on, after more episodes were released.

    Ok thanks for the response... I might take the plunge tonight and buy it also. I can only download tonight anyway because during the day I got limited internet.

    Guys help. the game is really low res on my ipod 5th gen for some reason despite the fact that all other telltale games including game of thrones runs with retina graphics.

    I think its a huge risk buying it for an ipod 5th gen which was never mentioned as being compatible. I wouldnt expect it to work on that, just like i dont think it'll work well on my iphone 4s (as its not mentioned on the list as being compatible)

    What the hell are you talking about, all other telltale games work fine. Game of thrones doesn't have this problem and they all use the same game engine. Ipod touch 5 is the newest version of the tech, basically at the same level as iphone 5, which is supported.

    This has really surprised me, as it runs better than most telltale games on my first gen iPad mini. Very nice surprise and I'm enjoying this a lot.

    Runs great on an iPad Air 1. The textures and effects still aren't PC or console level, but we get minimal post processing and depth of field blur effects. The game itself is great, even if you don't know Borderlands (I do though, huge fan). Judging by the story and choices, this is looking up to be another great Telltale series. Worth $5.

    Game is great but on my iPad Mini it's very jittery and laggy. Especially during action scenes. Kinda sucks.
