-Survival Mode - Some stats tweaking
-Survival Mode - Monsters don't attack in real time anymore, they attack after few hands
-Tutorial Mode included (Accessible via the Help Screen)
-Speeded up the filling of the table
-Tower mode - Limited the use of colors to avoid infinite play

Have Fun
Thanks! This makes Survival far more enjoyable for an ol' slowpoke like myself!

Nice I'm glad you like it Personnally I prefer it that way too, so thanks for the suggestion! There's still a lot of stats tweaking to do through! Next build should include all the achievements and some bug correction, since a lot of the game programing is finished!

Also, do you like the tutorial I included? Is it simple and clear enough?

Thanks!

Yeah, you managed to cover the basics and get into the multipliers in just a few steps. Informative and tight.

Hi guys

I've just sent you the final build of the game If there's no major bug, this is probably the build that will be send to Apple. Of course, there won't be red sprites anymore (the ones with white text on it because of one missing license). But anyway, here's the final changes :

-New icons, thanks to my girlfriend!
-Credits screen completed with a link to our website
-The cards are now filled horizontally, avoiding big holes at the end of a challenge game
-Tutorial Mode - Added more steps to explain the different hands possible
-Options Screen - You can now reset achievements without reseting the stats
-Options Screen - Reseting stats don't bring you to Main Menu anymore
-Survival Mode - Color hands don't do damage anymore
-Survival Mode - New monsters name!
-Survival Mode - Delay before new monster info is shown, showing the score got from the killed monster
-Survival Mode - Boss system added - Slight chance of all stats doubled
-Tower Mode - No more lag when game over
-Tower Mode - An alert is now shown when a column is full
-New achievement : Cleaner - Clean the screen in Challenge mode!
-Some minor bug fix

Have fun

Hi guys!

The final build of the game is finished and ready to be uploaded to Apple! But unfortunatly, the iOS provisioning portal is currently in maintenance since 30 hours now... So I can't send it right now, because I need a distribution profile for the App Store... Hoping to send it this afternoon and, maybe, release it on Feb' 21st! Else it will be on 28th!

Have a good day and I'll inform you of any changes!
