iPad version is already out. I just finished it.

This version needs to be redone. Most of the scenes are out of focus. Zooming out puts them in focus. The scenes, however, fill more than the screen of the iPad, above and/or below. There is a definite resolution problem.

The developer has overlaid the boxes over the working areas instead of outside of the frame, so the Menu, Down arrow, Guide, Info buttons are over the areas and the Inventory bar also covers needed areas. The only way to access the areas are to zoom out on each one to make the object accessible instead of 'choosing' one of the instruction boxes.

Most of the scenes are too dark to see what we need to see. Part of the game involves restoring the electricity which keeps on going off, but finding the necessary objects to restore it requires constant clicks on imagined areas.

It also required repeated clicking to get an inventory item to stay where it was placed. That is always a big annoyance.

I reluctantly did the upgrade- I wish I hadn't.

There are so many technical issues on this version that the story gets lost in trying to resolve them.

Adding: there is no mark or 'sparkles' for the HOS. You either refer to a walkthrough or drag your finger or stylus all over the screen until you find it.
