If they app is installed you should see Galaxoid listed here. Maybe try deleting the app from this menu, shutdown and restart your iPad and try re-downloading and installing.

This sounds more like something wonky going on with your iPad.

Let me know how that goes!

-Thanks
Thanks for the advice. So I went to usage and looked at all my apps and Galaxoid was there. Strangely though there was no title for the game. Every other app had its appropriate name except this game. So I deleted it from my device, went to the App Store and redownloaded the game and unfortunately the same issue. No icon on any of my screen pages nor when I click " OPEN" it will not launch from the App Store. This is the only app I have that has behaved this way.
By the way when I delete it from the list of my apps in usage the app is called "(null)"

Thats really odd.. Whats the exact iOS version you are on? 7.0.?

Also, I assume it works fine on your iPod?

Also, did you shutdown your iPad before you tried reinstalling?

I have an iPad 4 with iOS 7.0.4. I just deleted Galaxoid and installed from the App Store with no issues.

I wish there was a better way for me to determine whats going on. I honestly don't think that its just the game since Ive just downloaded and installed from the Appstore as you have been trying to do.

I wouldn't expect you to factory restore you iPad for my silly space shooter, but Id be willing to bet that would clear it up.

I apologize for the issues you are having and I wish I knew a better way to help!

Yes I'm running 7.0.4 on my ipad mini 2
As a test I just redownloaded two games from my purchased apps library, Flappy Bird and Zombie Volcano and both apps launch fine when I click open.
I will try Galaxoid again and see if it works.....

Good news ismyhc! I located Galaxoid in my Purchased Apps library in iTunes and downloaded it from the cloud. I pressed "OPEN" and the game launched
There's the app icon on my screen now! For some strange reason when I opened the App Store and simply searched Galaxoid and proceeded to download from the cloud some odd anomaly occurred?
Any ways thanks for your help, now I can play your wonderful game
Thanks and cheers

Oh good! Not sure what was going on before. I hope it is only an anomaly…

Keep your eyes peeled for an update fairly soon!

Thanks!

Strange problem that you had capricornman, wonder why it was only for this game. Glad you got it worked out though.

Yea it's was strange. First I clicked the link to the game from this thread which actually opened the app in iTunes rather than the App Store. That was a " null" download. I deleted it from my apps list in usage in settings. I reopened the App Store and searched Galaxoid and downloaded it. That didn't work either. I deleted it again. Finally I opened the App Store on my ipad again and went to my "Purchased" apps list. I located Galaxoid and downloaded it......it finally worked
Very strange indeed

Hey everyone. Sorry for such a long time without an update. I should be able to push out the latest updates to Galaxoid next week. I actually got a little side tracked trying to finish up and release my latest game. Pixel Crash!

Go check it out if you have a chance. Its not a game like Galaxoid, but you may get a kick out of it? Eitherway, its free.

Pixel Crash (Universal)

Ive also started work on a new shmup based around Galaxoid. This one will steer away from the Galaxian/Space Invaders type a bit and venture closer to something like Ikaruga but with retro graphics so stay tuned!

Apple Mfi support coming in the next update everyone!

Stay tuned!
