Game is fully released.
They haven't updated the website to say "order" instead of "preorder"
If you buy the $15 version you get the full game. If you pay more you get extras in the game, plus the games (awesome) soundtrack
Credit Cards/Paypal/Steam are the only ways I know of

They have talked a lot about a mobile release but haven't given any form of timeline.
I doubt that if you have the pc version it will transfer over, but can't say for sure either way. That just isn't how most companies do mobile.
On the other hand I bet if you have the PC version and the Mobile version, because of how the saves are done progress can be saved between them if you use the same e-mail.
Again not 100% on any of the mobile stuff though.

1) The free-ware version is the alpha. It has not been updated in several years. The paid version (either via the webplayer or Steam) is the final release.

2) If you're paying money, you get the full version. You can buy it on Steam or through the desktopdungeons.net website. Purchasing from either will give you a Steam key and access to pay it through the webplayer.

3) Currently, I think the only way to pay directly by credit card is to purchase the game through Steam.

4) It's under development, but there has been no announced ETA.

Welcome :)

1. Yes, the game is complete. The beta is over and the full version of the game is available both at http://www.DesktopDungeons.net and Steam.

2. Both are for the full version. $15 gets you the game, $25 gets you the game plus the soundtrack DRM-free and the bonus content that was available during the beta.

3. Paypal can accept VISA cards straight without you having to set up an account with them, it's a little confusing, but there should be an option for that right on the first page you see after clicking the pay now button. Alternatively you can pick the game up on Steam with your VISA card with no hassles... Do you use Steam?

4. We're not sure when the iPad version will be released. Definitely only next year.

5. We're not sure if we can do that, but I'm not sure if I'd bet on it... You will definitely be able to play the same savegame between your iOS devices and your PC though.
