Pleased to hear that We actually made great effort keeping the install size of Heroki below 400MB by using in-game assets only for cutscenes and such. Nice to know it's appreciated!

It certainly is and I absolutely love when developers go that extra mile. I believe Oceanhorn was the same and that's a testament to my words: Oceanhorn has had a permanent spot on all my devices since day one.

Absolutely loving the level 3 music. Is the soundtrack available anywhere. Must have it! Also, love how sprawling the levels are. This is the my GotY candidate so far.

One question: is Heroki (HEROki) a guy or a girl (HERoki)?

We are uploading the fix in a few hours. It wil be QA'd by tomorrow -- just to make sure this version works on all devices from 4S and up, iPad 2 and up and the Mini's. Lower devices aren't supported due to outdated hardware to run Heroki.

Once QA approves this version we will submit this version tomorrow as well. Hopfully Apple can speed up the approval time so that you can play Heroki (hopefully) tomorrow on your iPad Mini. I will update this topic once the update is live I hope I've answered all your questions regarding the fix.

Heroki is a boy, but good question though! Never thought of the wordplay her-oki before

That's definitely important. I'm glad you guys specifically focused on this because I think once games hit 700mb+ people start thinking of making room for other games since smart phones and tablets have very limited space.

Like Metal Casket said, Ocean Horn is incredible as well because of that massive game fitting in a small size.

Good news: The update will be out within an hour or so! It's currently propagating so iPad Mini owners can also enjoy the game very shortly.
