    "Sir, should we include the puzzles in the port?"
    "Nein, nein, nein!"

    As long as we get third game for handhelds rather then consoles I am okay with this.

    About time they released this on ios. Although I don't know how I feel about not having any puzzles. Yes the story was good but the puzzles added to it, will be interesting to see how this turns out.

    YEAH! God forbid them they want to make more money and spread their name and franchises out! How dare those fuckers! Greedy bastards! Nobody has an iPhone these days! Everybody's gone back to the Nokia days! Fuckers.

    I'd kind of like it without puzzles. I like me some visual novel every now and then.
    Android pls

    I don't think people like visual novels like that all that much.

    Also I wonder how many download this blindly, expecting to get the puzzles.

    As long as we get the third game on 3DS/Vita, I don't care where it goes!

    I really liked 999 so it's nice to see it getting more notice even though I'd rather this have been an android release.
    So it is a VN as in the decisions you make effect the outcome of the story, not just you are along for the ride with no real influence on the outcome?

    I wonder what makes developers favor iOS over Android even though Android covers about 70% of smartphones worldwide???
    Anyway, PLEASE port it to Android!

    I'm just confused as to how this is going to work on a one screen device

    256x192 per screen. Ignoring bezel that means 256x384 or 2/3

    640×960 is an iphone 4s or identical aspect ratio.

    Does not seem like an especially troubling issue.

    I'm not too sure. The original game was creepy as hell, kept me awake just because of how gruesome it was, the music and everything. Virtue's Last Reward on the other hand, would put someone to sleep.
