The developer claimed they found a bug and resubmitted/are resubmitting it for reapproval...

A few non developers speculate that it was because the developer saw Warhammer and Phoenix Wright and ran away EDIT from this week. It may still come eventually as Playdek has stated that they will wait to announce release after Apple has reapproved it, which would probably push release further back...

Playdek is great, but I wish they'd get over their allergic reaction to cross-platform development. I don't have an Android device, but I certainly have friends who do and I'd like to be able to play games with them. If Playdek is developing a game you can be sure that will never happen, and that's too bad.

Maybe they just do not have any Android programmers on payroll and are worried about expanding their company? That would explain why expansions for their games take so long...

Will we ever see Star Fluxx?

Have several of the Lock N Load wargames, they're great!

Useless trivia - Back before I had a life I was in good communication with Mark Walker and submitted a soundtrack for a potential Forgotten Heroes: Vietnam PC conversion. I'd have to check, but it seems like that was about 10 years ago! If I have an MP3 copy handy, I might post it on my SoundCloud...

EDIT: Not quite as old as I thought - lastest rev. was 6/13/2006
