Slay, Conquest, The General and Rats! are all there (my son loves Slay, btw).

Surely, you can see what a brilliant app for the iPad Firefight would be?

You're considering doing this, right? Please???

I'm not sure FF can work correctly, like we like it, on a Ipad.

Your poll unfortunately does not give me the choices I would have liked, so decided for the closest one and issue this statement:
Right now I don't believe it's worth the hassle.

It certainly would be possible for me to do a port to the iPad! I had no plans to do iPhone ports of Mother Of All Battles, Critical Mass or Firefight as the screen just isn't big enough, but with the larger screen size of the iPad I may reconsider. The problem will be if it's easy to control the game though. A mouse is really accurate, you can see what's underneath the mouse pointer (unlike a big fat finger) and you can 'hold' an object on a mouse pointer even when the button is clicked up but with a finger you just get to drag things.
