Note for iPhone 3GS owners

It was just brought to my attention that iPhone 3GS owners are experiencing a strange display bug when fireworks explode in the game. I'm actively working on a fix for this. Thanks everyone who's played the game so far, and 3GS owners, know that a fix will be imminent.

This also means anyone who would like a photo of their city in the next version of the game will need to get it submitted as soon as possible. See the site, http://libertyboom.com for details.

New version of Liberty Boom just submitted

I've just submitted a new version of Liberty Boom to Apple for review. Hoping it hits the store in the next week or so.

A few notes:
We discovered after release that 3GS users have a pretty serious display bug that makes the game a lot harder than it should be. This is fixed in the update.

Added three new cities: Columbus, Denver, and Portland.

The fireworks look a lot cooler. And negative point explosions are now designated with a minus sign.

Also, you'll get one "Retry this level" per New Game session. That way if you bomb out in a later level you have a chance to keep going.

I'll post here and on the Liberty Boom site when the new version is approved.

Thanks everyone!

The high scores can be found on http://libertyboom.com or within the game on a Leader Board screen. You can filter to only your own scores as well, to see how you rank with everyone else.

We did consider using OpenFeint, but decided to roll our own high score server, as it gives us more flexibility in the long run. Thinking in terms of Plus+ or Cloudcell.

Hey HipHopTouch, I can appreciate your skepticism. All our beta testers and early players have told us that Liberty Boom is really fun and addictive. I might be biased, but I agree with them.

However, since your sig says you have a 3GS, I'd actually recommend waiting a bit for the updated version of Liberty Boom we just submitted to Apple for review. We found out after launch that there's a display issue on 3GS hardware, and even though it's fixed now, we have to wait for approval on the update.

Is it alright if I let you know when the new version comes out? I'm hoping it'll be next week.
