Default Will Gameloft ever fix the Backstab iOS 7 crashing problem?

As many know, Backstab has been crashing on all devices because of its failure to be compatible with iOS 7. Does anyone think Gameloft will fix the problem, or will it let people constantly waste their money on it?

I can't speak about backstab but Gameloft are known for not updating games, even very popular titles that have done well.

Because of complaints, they've apparently pulled a whole bunch of their older apps from the store, instead of updating them.

This is the problem with new IOS releases and functionality. Older games aren't going to work forever if the developer isn't fixing their games up post-IOS release. I think this really hurts IOS as a gaming platform and wish Apple would have a backward compatibility mode so we can enjoy our favorites from just a few years ago.

Modern Combat 2 has no sound on iOS 7 and Zombie Infection has a bunch of bugs now. Two good games basically unplayable now. Just an fyi.

One game they could've at least fixed for iOS 7 was MC3. It came out a little before the 5G phones/pads/pods came out, so it could've gotten widescreen and came all the way up to iOS 7 support. Lameloft is lousy.

And it's for this reason that I no longer buy any of their games.

I'm no huge Gameloft fan but on the other hand i cant expect them to keep updating their games for the rest of time when a new iOS version comes out. Same for other companies. I have some games which dont work anymore due to ios7, they're quite old though and i doubt some of the companies who made them are even publishing anymore due to no profits etc.

If this game was new i could understand. But Backstab came out nearly 3 years ago now. I'm surprised people are still playing it

I had this 3 years ago, quite enjoyed it but probably wouldnt go back to it. With iOS theres a good chance everytime theres a new iOS that some games wont work on it.
