I loved this game when I played it on my Mac many years ago. The colors look pretty atrocious, though. Was it like that originally? I don't remember it being like that, but maybe it was. In any case I might have to pick this up. Thanks for the heads up.

100% Spaceward Ho! You will not regret it!

From German to German: Kauf Dir Spaceward Ho! Ist ein Kultspiel. Vor allem die KI ist einfach genial. Die Computergegner lernen aus Deinem Verhalten von Spiel zu Spiel. Allein das ist beeindruckend. Ich spiele es seit über 15 Jahren und es ist noch heute ein Topspiel für mich ... bin sonst Civilization, GalCiv etc. Fan ...

Thank you... Das klingt gut. I wonder how I could miss that one in my AMIGA days.

I am a little bias, so I definitely say Spaceward Ho! Though I love great strategy games, so I also say buy both!

Well, looks like you beat me to it! I'm the developer of the game and we were just working on posting about it everywhere. As it is our first gaming release on iOS devices we don't have the huge publicity yet.

Glad you love it. If you have any suggestions, we are actively working on improving it. We are also at work on making it run on the smaller screens (iPhone/iPod).

And yes, those are the original colors. Only difference is the sidebar is blue instead of white. We had it white originally and it looked quite bad and too bright. But we are using the original graphics for the ships, planets and players.

Also, don't forgot to play next Sunday to see a special hat

Default Retina

I have also submitted (and hopefully it will get released this week) an update to take advantage of the retina displays. You can see the difference at http://ariton.com/post/19841883926/n...pad-aka-ipad-3

We are also working on a 1.0.2 update right now with bug fixes and more features.
