    I'm not sure it will appeal to the ordinary iPad user, but I honestly couldn't think of a better medium with which to interact with this game on. I'd actually consider buying an iPad if there were more games like this on it.

    Amazing, I have the PC version and have always thought this would be great on the ipad, although I would encourage the developers to also release an iPhone and (most importantly) and Android version as well.

    With the fast approaching Amazon Fire bringing a quality AFFORDABLE tablet to the masses the Android tablet screne is about the take off and it would be great to see an inde developer riding that wave

    Wow - this will be getting plenty of playtime on my Ipad 2 - assuming the mouse control gets transferred well to the touch screen.

    I love strategy games like this, on iOS there are some great ones for example:

    http://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/hunters-episode-one-hd/id415284093?mt=8
    More or less space hulk, the game

    Risk! Who doesnt love risk

    Great little war game

    However I do have to say I have yet to find a game where I felt I needed an ipad over an iPhone to be honest, fair enough it is nice to have all that extra screen space but not for the £399 that an ipad costs, hence why I feel if the devs could support the iPhone and cheaper Android Tablets they would make a killing

    hopefully able to do crossplatform play.

    the game will work perfectly on iPad, enlarge control icons slightly, pinch to zoom and 2 finger to pan around. best part is that Game Centre have turn-based API's with push notification. the game will be more than idea for iOS.

    can't wait! it'll be one of the few games i purchase on iOS. (i've only been playing free games, i feel games are not worth the money, only bought apps that i'll always use)

    Cross-platform play was confirmed in their blog. There's also some pictures of it running.

    They've stated on Twitter that it it works on iPad they're likely to do a Android version.

    The internet, it is a good place to find this information :p.

    Yes, YES GLWG is a fantastic game. Its also on Android, i've had it a month and i'm addicted.

    Frozen Synapse looks like the perfect phone (or tablet *mubbles*) game. That is why I haven't bought it yet as I have been waiting for phone version. Add in cross platform play and the world will be a better place.

    Do it dev's, you owe it to the world. ;)
