Sanuku, if you want to fix this up, I don't know how to make an NZ thread like you. Although I might be able to get some of the screenshots.

Price is $6.49 in New Zealand.

I reinstall the game again, purchase ep2 and downloaded successfully without any issues; I don't need to replay ep1 in order to start ep2, sweet!

UPDATE: but all my achievements in GC are reset...damn!

My wife had the problem with episode 2 not installing/not finishing the installation. Even after complete reinstall it would fill up the progress bar and get stuck, logo still says "Episode 1", etc. It's an iPad 2, 5 GB free, iOS 7.1 (so not entirely up to date).

I found no trace of a download anywhere in the application's data. So I'm guessing it did finish the download but failed to copy the temporary file to its final location.

I copied the 732 MB file from my iPad to hers and now it's working, title changed to not show "Episode 1" anymore, episode 2 logo is grey and says installed, new game offers a choice of starting with the tutorial, episode 1, or episode 2 as it should. Starting episode 2 works. But the progress bar is still there.

Do you know which file it was specifically? I guess I can just look for any file around that size. And do you know where it needs to go exactly. I'll try using another device and replicate what you did. Just ticks me off that it won't work right on its own after purchasing it, you know?

The ep2 in game achievements have no match to GC achievements, can you fix that?

I followed the directions listed by those in the Revolution Forum on page 3, and it worked. The download started from the beginning and finally installed fully! You have to dig into some files and search for the partial download. But once you find it, delete it, and restart the app, all should work if you're as lucky as me.

The game center is broken, maybe that's the reason : http://forums.toucharcade.com/showthread.php?t=240331
