Yachty Deluxe. Free!

It gives me great please to announce our latest game, Yachty Deluxe



It's a cheap game with asynchronous multiplayer, so why not give it a go and destroy your friends!

Featuring...

★ FREE ★
The game is supported by unobtrusive advertising. (Which can be permanently removed via a cheap in-app purchase.)

★ ONLINE MULTIPLAYER ★
Play and beat anyone in the world using your Game Center account. You can play multiple games at once at a pace that suits you.

★ SOLO MODE ★
A standard patience game for one player.

★ TRIPLES MODE ★
A more in-depth patience game for one player, using three scoring columns.

★ PASS & PLAY ★
A two-player game needing no internet connection - just pass the device to your friend when you've taken your turn.

★ LEADERBOARDS ★
There are several Game Center leaderboards to register your best scores on. Can you be the best?

★ ACHIEVEMENTS ★
With twenty different Game Center achievements to chase down, you will never be short of extra challenge.

★ REALISTIC DICE ★
The dice are rendered in full 3D and shaken using an advanced physics simulation. This brings an unprecedented level of realism to iOS dice gaming.

★ HOW TO PLAY ★
Rules of the game, for all gameplay variants, are included within the game.

Currently the game is for 3GS or newer, but there is a patch in with Apple right now to allow play on older devices.

Thanks and enjoy.

I'm having fun with the game. It's Yahtzee. How could you go wrong?

However, the ads annoy me, so I wanted to pay to remove them, but when I try, it keeps giving me an error saying it can't connect to the app store. I have downloaded other apps and can access the store just fine. Is this a bug, or just a temporary thing?

In a word, visibility! We think the quality is definitely there, but that doesn't mean everyone will find it even when it's free.

Regarding the ads, there was a bit of a balls up and the IAP has not yet been approved by Apple. Shouldn't be long though.

Glad you're enjoying it.

I'm in the middle of my first online game now. It works perfectly so far.

Any ETA on the IAP to remove ads? I can't stand ads. I'm paying to remove them as soon as possible.

Great to hear. There's obviously only so much testing you can do of a multiplayer game before it hits the streets.

The IAP should be tomorrow if it takes the usual amount of time.

The new version is out with a working in-app advert removal button. Along with a bunch of other fixes and tweaks.

The game now also works on ALL iOS devices. The physics is somewhat pared down on pre 3GS but is still a big leap ahead of all these "just flash some sprites" versions around!
