Ditto to that. Hopefully they sort it out before I forget to try again!

Has there been word on an iPad version? Most board game app developers have been going with universal apps (eventually), but you never know.

For those of you who are curious as to how it looks doubled on the iPad screen... I took two screenshots for you:

Both are unedited save for converting them from BMP files to high quality JPG files to cut down on the size. Look at the images at 100% size to get a feel for how it looks on the iPad.

Seems like the selling price mimics the game. More investors leads to devalued stock. 49 cents tomorrow?

Thanks for these. The game looks good a 2x. Still, it would be nice if the developer would comment on whether there are plans for native iPad inclusion in this app or a separate app. Also, online play had been promised by the end of 2010. Anyone know where this stands?

Does the game play pretty good on the Ipad? Is it fun solitaire? Does it have a pass and play feature for the Ipad? Can I please get a short review from someone who has actually played it on their Ipad?

These Hot Deals listings for iPhone games are great! I got Zooloretto for .99 too! I have been waiting for this one to drop for some time. It installed while I was writing this.

I have an ipad and downloaded it. I'd say the resolution looks good enough on the Ipad.

I lost the first three games against the computers. The third game I won. I'd say AI is pretty good, it actually gangs up on you. There was one game where I tried not buying a share. The first turn, every player chose to auction and choose no share for auction.

I haven't seen the AI good enough to truly attempt to screw your company though. I have the feeling that the AI, which only has one setting, will be a limited challenge, but the interface is good. You can complete a game in five to ten minutes. I'd say definitely worth getting for $1 or $2.

AI is OK, I had never played the game and after one day I am only losing an occasional 5 player game if I don't go first yet it is still addicting and is a very quick game.
