Underworlds 1.1 update is out!

Just got word from Apple that our Underworlds 1.1 update is approved! It should be showing up in the store tonight. Here's everything that made it into the update:

• Original musical score, by Voodoo Highway Music
• Dexterity now factors more heavily into the “to-hit” roll
• World-wide rankings/leaderboard system for single game and overall. Rankings include:
--Gold Collected
--Monsters Killed
--Potions Used
--Treasures Collected
--Times Completed Per Difficulty
--Fastest Time Per Difficulty
• D-pad movement controls have been substantially improved
• New character portraits
• You can now change difficulty level after a restart
• You can now restart with same character after a completed game
• Feedback system for button/control misses added
• Vibration can now be toggled on/off
• New game font for more ‘role play’ feel
• To prevent mis-taps on potions, you must now double-tap to use a potion when health/vitality is above 50%
• Treasure tables updated with unique items (purple) for lower level creatures ultra rares (gold) for higher level creatures
• Several spelling errors corrected

Um ---be safe ---buy now --- Its probably not going to drop tonight or tomorroe but can go up. Fun game for about 3 hours. If they add randomized monster, dungeons and a passive vitality and power restore the game will be worth twice what is was when it first came out.


For fans of a Diabloesque hack and slash ---you will love this. Great first shot but has limited replay due to lack of randomization. But there are various difficult settings.

"e" TENNIS ---play this and you owe me $1

We're going to hold off the price reset through the weekend, but the current plan is to move it back up on Monday.

Underworlds is a VERY nice, idevice specific game.

1.) double tap for potions =)

2.) World-wide leaderboards

3.) treasure tables updated and restart with same character after beating the game

You can't go wrong with this game guys! Thanks to Glenda and Maverick Software for such a quick and full follow-up response.

Grr, I've really been debating whether to get this game or not.

I don't want to spend money just yet as i'm busy beta testing other things and the game may sit on my device for awhile... but I think I would enjoy it quite a bit =/
