An update with universal binary would have been nice? My iTunes balance is pennies rather than pounds - I'll have to stick with the iPhone edition.

How is it possible that developers still don't understand the importance of allowing screen rotation on iPad?

Fix it, please.

New Version Submitted

Hey guys. We submitted a new update to Fara HD yesterday that supports iOS versions that are older than iOS 5. B/c of the App Store holiday lockdown, hopefully this update will be approved before the New Year.

Misguided - We are looking into supporting multiple orientations on Fara HD in an additional update.

Thanks so much for supporting the game, and feel free to ask us any questions on this forum.

You just saved yourself a bad Review on the iTunes Store since i couldn`t play the HD Version because of that Reason and didn`t even know that the Game was using any Option of the 5.0 Firmware.

Was it a Mistake or is the Game using anything from 5.0 that i did miss?

Any chance you'll either add auto-rotation or at least an option to flip the screen? I want to play this, but I keep getting stopped by the fact that's upside down relative to the smart cover. Or did you add that and I missed it?
