GAMEVIL has announced that Kami Retro, the 8-bit inspired puzzle platformer released back in March for the iPhone and iPod touch and given a four-star rating by 148Apps has been made available in a version optimized for the iPad, with Kami Retro HD. According to the head of GAMEVIL USA, Kyu Lee, “The unique style of KAMI RETRO HD looks, sounds and plays great on the iPad. Developer Paw Print Games perfected a top-notch experience for the device and we’re thrilled that more new fans can enjoy the game in HD.”

And the iPad version of the game should promise to be more friendly to the gameplay than the smaller iPhone/iPod touch screen was. The puzzle platformer does not give players direct control over their retro-inspired men to get to the exit; instead, players must do swiping actions to control the characters’ movement and jumping. Having more room on screen to perform these swipes should theoretically lead to improved results, especially when multiple characters are on the screen at the same time. More accurate controls should hypothetically mean improved gameplay for iPad owners over the original game.

The game also comes with the updated content that the iPhone/iPod touch version has received, including the new bear, cat, bunny, and robot skins. The game comes with the same 60 levels of the original version, including the bonus levels where the player must guide just one of the retro troops through a single room, trying to collect all the items in it before time expires. Kami Retro HD, named Apple’s iPad Game of the Week on May 26th, is available now for $2.99. Sadly, the game is not a universal app like other releases are starting to do, so multiple device owners will have to choose between which version of the game they want, although the iPhone/iPod touch version is currently available for only $0.99 as well.
