I wanted to check on the Zombox status and although this thread is quiet there's a lot of updating on zombox.net.

Fainting, hunger pains and more…
Posted in Characters, Zombox on February 15th, 2013 by Tyson Ibele
Smaller update this week because most of what I worked on was just optimizing code…

The ailment system has some new additions:

When your character is bleeding, he’ll now attract all nearby zombies
When your character is too sleep deprived, there’s a chance he could pass out. This leaves you vulnerable. Clicking your character repeatedly, however, will slap him back awake
When your character is too hungry, he’ll clench his stomach to ease the hunger pains. This prevents you from using weapons until you eat again (although you’ll still be able to attack with your fists)
When you’re suffering from one or more ailments, you’ll slowly become delirious. This will cause the screen to wobble and your character will stumble around, unable to move in straight lines

Special attacks and attack bonus upgrades are also disabled while you’re in the later stages of suffering from any one of the three main ailment types.

Also, all 900 item icons were re-rendered at double resolution to make them look crisper at higher (retina) resolutions.

I’m also thinking about adding some food/sleep/health bonuses, that will give the player extra damage/speed/defense bonuses when you get extra food/sleep/meds. That will help to balance things out so you are inclined to eat/sleep/medicate yourself more often — not just to prevent death.

Well granted the ipod touch 4 isnt that old (No way just a year, i had my ipod touch 4 for nearly two years) but thats the way it is with Apple, every year or so there'll be a new version.

I had a lot of issues on my ipod touch 4 with games crashing constantly, having to reset my device, the ipod touch 5 has been great. But yeah its frustrating having to keep upgrading.

Well yeah, but I don't like the idea to upgrade to something that's not the latest device, if you upgrade to iPhone 5 or iPad 4 you get the finest hardware out there, if you upgrade to the iPod touch 5, which we waited for 2 years for btw, you get an iPad 2, when the iPod touch 4 came out it was the same hardware than the iPhone 4 except for the RAM, it's just bs.

I've had my iPod 4g for about 2 years and 4 month. In apples world you have to upgrade every two years to keep up, it sucks but its true

Yea sorry guys,

I was under the impression a while ago that the iPod Touch 4 was essentially identical to the iPhone 4 in terms of hardware, so I assumed Zombox could support it.

Unfortunately I learned recently that the iPod Touch 4 only has half the RAM of the iPhone 4, so unless I can literally cut the ram requirements for Zombox in half....I won't be able to support the older 256mb RAM devices.
