I am editing my review to reflect the fact that I don't seem to be able to stop playing this game. All of my complaints below are still valid, but something about the look of the interface, and the way it encourages you to use the iPad interface, and the lulling drone of the music ... all combines to turn it into a sort of zen/slot-machine experience that is very hard to put down. After playing the non-HD version, I was tempted by the claim of more planets. However, it turns out this does not mean you maneuver between a larger number of worlds - just that there's a larger database of planet names that are randomly assigned to the three worlds on your map screen. The graphics are crisper and there's music, but I really wanted four or six planets to travel between, or at least a little more variability in prices so that there would more often be a decent reason to go to the right side of the map. As the game works now, you pretty much just go back and forth between two planets on the right, mostly trading the medium-price cargo. Everything else is purely random.
