YAAAAY update is live. Downloading now. Will report back if MFi controller support has been fixed or not.

If someone could enlighten me on where and how I can find this "Zen Arena" that would be most awesome.

I've downloaded the update, but the map still looks exactly the same...

(Lvl33, all story missions completed, and currently on Tech Lvl 6)

Anyone have any info?

Thanks for that, but I was looking for the "Zen Arena" mentioned in the update, not the story-mode missions. Based on the screenshot, it looks like it's in Japan...so I can only assume one would have to unlock it...

Yep, game pad support is back and works wonderfully.

Is there any way to circumvent the timers in the story missions? I don't wanna wait 15 minutes to continue.

Second the confirmation with SteelSeries Stratus on iPad 4. No more updates for the game, what a tease!

Def one of the best handling MFI games out there. Handles really well. Worth the wait for the update!

Yep,plays great and precise with a controller but i'm not sure if i keep it on my device.I just hate to watch video ads without the ability to skip them.Absolutely no go imo.

And the difficulty ramps up quite fast.I can see a lot of grinding incoming...

Btw,Why the hell are so many f2p games offering only consumable IAPs and not a full unlock to get rid of Ads etc?It sucks.

Anyway,at least it's very good to test the controller functionality and it's way better than Dead Effect.Also the MFi support is better.And it looks quite good.

Purchased the coin doubler a couple of days ago along with the starter pack and I have not had a ad since then. My character is leveled in the mid twenties and the difficulty has been fair so far with double currency and have never felt the need to purchase anymore specialized packs and to be honest probably could have picked up enough blueprint pieces in the first couple of days of playing for both weapons in the starter pack.

I was really surprised how well this game handles besides looking really good. Most mobile FPS (and action RPG) games feel off to me, they are either too floaty in movement or to stiff, but this one feels really good.
