    At $11.99, not too bad. I'm glad it's not one of those "Freemium" games where you have to pay a boatload to get the good stuff or speed things up.

    Actually that’s cheap - look how much people spend on IAP since most so called free games are unplayable without paying real Money for virtual goods - and you have keep buying stuff to keep play.

    I am no longer downloading those since those are overpriced.

    There are no good free games and I’m happy to pay this small amount and enjoy a game without ads or artificial slowdowns that are only there to suck mu money

    I was just about to comment about it being a perfect price for a full game

    A very decent price for a full game, or maybe you like the free "pay to win" games?

    I would get it, but I don't have a device that will run it.

    I’ll probably pick this up. I like city building games and I’d rather support a company that releases a full game for a set price instead of going the route of pay to win/in-app purchases.

    Awesome! We need tons more full feature games on iPad. The mobile stuff is just not interesting to me.

    Regarding the price point, the full game is available for PC at GOG.com for under $5, often on sale for under $2. Is the value-added for the iOS port worth the premium?
