App description: ****

WARNING: Looks like Avalanche Mode takes an unusually long time to start on iOS5. The screen will appear to go black for about 30 seconds before returning to normal. It's a strange bug. We're looking into fixes for this, we will post here when a patch is submitted!

The above link has a bunch of reviews of the game, from different sites, including the Incredibly Glowing Toucharcade Review!

First day sales are the most important, so we're doing an Early Buyer's Discount. This will be our only sale for the game, ever. Fans that get the game early (Thursday and Friday of release) also get two exclusive in-game hats. The discount price is $1.99, rising to $2.99 afterwards.

5 star ratings really help us out! We count on our Twitter/Toucharcade fans to rate us, since most people don't partake in the iTunes rating system. Written reviews help us even more.

Soon, I'll be using this first post to reveal info about what's in the next update. Stay tuned!

Anyone having problems with endless mode loading times after upgrading to iOS 5? (Both avalanche and eruption). When I start it, it sits with a black screen for about half a minute before the level loads... I PM'd Kepa, and I'm kind of hoping I'm not the only one so I don't look crazy

P.S. It feels really weird posting in a thread that's been vacant for 8 months...

Working on a wiki for Wayward Souls, so feel free to help out! Link to a list of its current pages:

Just tested and the same is happening for me.

Oh man, the terrible things i would do to get a widescreen update for this game...

Also, if any of the newer members of the forums don't have this yet, get on that now. This is one of my top 3 iOS games of all time.

Edit: I just launched this again wanting to start from scratch and couldn't find a way to reset all progress. Is this option available? It was is Hook Champ...

Now playing: Working my way through the best retro games recently re-relased including Sonic, Raiden Legacy, Blazing Star and more. Keep them coming! And revisiting all Orange Pixel titles...

I've just started playing this and it is rather good. Quite pleased that openfeint doesn't work any more so I can just beat the developers score and move on. I'll be at Wayward Souls by 2018.
