I finally beat the driller level without that invisible ignitor glitch. I ended the level and pressed "Tap To Continue", and the game crashed to the springboard. I went back in, had to do the Driller fight again and this time succeeded in making it to the next level.

So that big glitch is gone, but there are still a few glitches left that crash the game. Also, the checkpoint system needs to be improved - if I beat a level, quit the game and play again later, I should resume at the beginning of the next chapter, not be forced to play the previous section all over again. In other words, checkpoints should be added to the end of levels.

For me everything was going fine at the drill... I have a save game at the key just before the drill goes out. I tried 2 times to do it but got killed at the 3rd shootnto the drill, and I had tonstop playing. So all was working good I just didn't had the time to complete that part.

But now, after the last update to the game, I'm getting the invisible green laser problem. I'm now stuck at the drill without any way to do it. Will this bug be fix soon? I don't mind paying $7 bucks for a game, but I would likemto be able to completr it and not have to redoo everything... It's frustating!

I have a 4G, 32gb, not one bug or crash. If you own a 4G I would recommend you buy it, I think their update fixed most crashes anyway.

Sad, on there twitter they reported as 20% of shadowgun copys were bought, with 80% being cracked versions.

This is the downside of building a game that targets the "core" gamer audience, as most people interested in TPS games are well-versed enough to either know how to jailbreak their devices and steal games, or know how to Google and follow the many simple tutorials on the subject. To some extent, it's the same problem that PC game developers have been facing. Gamers who know how to overclock their machines and install top-end graphics cards also are fully aware of how bittorrent works.

That $8 price point isn't doing them any favors either, sadly, as much as I'd love to see $8 prices become the norm on the App Store.
