    Exactly !

    (After about 7 crashes straight out of the app back to my homescreen i can finally play it, great little game just i can imagine there'll be many more crashes in the near future until an update is out)

    It looks like they edited the description now to exclude iPod touch 4G... Now only says iPad2 and iPhone 4 and up...

    Ughhh. I wonder how many iPod users got soaked for $5... Leads me to believe that there is no intention to provide a patch.

    And I was sure iPod 4 and iPhone 4 were same hardware, except for camera. I recall reading rhat somewhere way back when I bought my iPod...

    Ah well, live and learn.

    Hmmm thats poor though. I'm tempted to moan to Apple and get a refund, specially if they've changed the description.

    So we're all guinea pigs, they then see threads like this and realise it crashes on ipod touch 4th gen and now update the description ? Very poor.

    I was going to buy all the episodes as i love the series (and the game is good) but its a bad move by them to cheekily edit the description after all us suckers have bought the game and had all these crashes.

    yeah, users who bought it for their 4th gen touch's should definitely contact Apple for a refund now that they've changed the description... shame

    Seems like the iPhone 4 graphics are not spectacular, at all. Kinda a let down, but all in all the game is still fun. A few freezes here and there, but it's to be expected.

    Also an email to [email protected]. Just emailed them myself to see if somehow an update will be coming, if they say 'nope not working for ipod touch 4th gen' i'll moan to Apple to get my money back. Big shame

    Finished it quite fast, probably 3-4 hours. Played on iPad 3, looks good for its style I guess. The text isn't Retina but the graphics and gameplay are. It's quite touching, my decisions really gave me feels.

    I am definitely buying all of them too, but the fact that the UI isn't retina kinda makes me mad. I paid $20 for the whole game, and least make it look beautiful. There is no way that having the text be retina display compatible can slow down the game too much.

    I'm not one of the ones who was duped with the iPod Touch 4 thing. But there are PLENTY of really nice looking 3D games that play well on that device. And if you go by the device itself, it is the latest iPod Touch. iPod Touch 5 is rumored for the fall. There's also not many people that want to deal with getting an unlocked/non-contract iPhone just to play a game.

    Anyway, I've had similar issues going all the way back to my iPod Touch 2G and now my 3GS where devs don't put the right requirements in and people get ripped off. IMO, it's the devs responsibility to make sure it runs on all the devices it's advertised to run on.

    How bad is it? Is the framerate choppy?

    Wedia, it's kinda weird seeing you at a different thread other than the SF4 volt thread:D
    Yeah, this is one of the best looking games of 2012?! The story alone makes it GOTY!!

    It isn't bad at all. The framerate is very nice, but at some points the game freezes for a second as if loading what is about to happen next. Doesn't harm gameplay at all.

    Anyway, playing this game is like watching an intense and touching movie:)

    Nicely put. Like an interactive book and movie, all brought to life by great acting and a nice art style. Too bad it's only about 3 hours though.

    This is fantastic! Using my iPhone 4 and it hasn't had much problems like crashes or stuff like that. Kinda laggy though, but not that big of a problem to prevent me from enjoying this. Still hope thay fix the lag with an update.
    Gotta get those other episodes while it's 25% off! Hope when the others come out, it won't take too much space.

    Yeah just finished episode 1. It's a little bit short but it's a quality game. I went and preordered e2-5 and I hope they role them out soon.

    The other thing I liked about this game was the lead character was African American/black which you don't often see in video games. Waking mars also had an African American woman and it's a breath of a fresh air for me at least:)
