    Congrats on making New and Noteworthy! :D
     
  3. Out of curiosity, how does this differ from the original? It looks pretty much the same. What would make me buy this if I already have the first?

    This is a lot more polished than the first one. Great game and well worth 59p!
     
  6. Except Wildcards; those are in the original, too. The rest sounds like mostly window dressing with a little extra like a tutorial (not needed if you already know how to play) and high score competition with a daily puzzle via GameCenter. Not really a sequel so much as an update. I'll stick with the original.
