    Do you know if it's the original PC version or if it's the censored version?

    The controls take a little while to get used to, the analogue sticks are awful put the 'prey' controls work ok with a bit of practice.

    The game isn't exactly the full PC version. The strip club isn't the same its censored a little bit and the controls take getting used to.

    I looked at the screenshots. Where are the controls and how do you move around?

    You can set the transparancy of the controls in the menu so they must have hidden them.

    I actually prefer the analogue sticks, they feel more natural IMO :)

    The game says it's only compatible with the 2nd generation...

    I didn't recall seeing that ... and based on the reviews neither did many others. Even Apple Support didn't point that out.

    Also - there are several comments of those with 2nd gen Touches that it won't work for - and Apple support says that it isn't 3.0 compatible.

    It says it right under the "REQUIREMENTS" section.

    Sorry ... meant to say 'didn't recall seeing it when I checked, but did notice it later'.

    I've been happy using the digital controls. Takes a little while to get used to them and then it starts to feel natural.
    Use digital controls, tapshoot, easy aim and then turn down the movement sensitivities a little.
    It's a great port.
