Serpent --> 七寸 (qi1 cun4) --> "Seven Inches"
kill dragon
instead of rebel attack (this is one possibility) but it could also mean counter-attack.

The rest yes... Instead of bird it is a special type but close enough.
Serpent is 7 inches... Quite possible, we may be 1 inch tall...

WE ARE LEGO MINIFIGURES IN THIS GAME!!! JK.

And a Santa Armor would be really nice.
I want those reindeers too. I want them to come with Serpent's teleporting charge as well.

...except I want them as regular enemies, not bosses. And I want them bombarding the players left and right.

Yup, I see the Chinese app, too.
I always wondered about that, why I see so many Chinese-only applications...

If I remember right (I do not care much about Android, so I do not really pay attention), the maximum size of Apps in the Android store is much smaller than on iTunes (where the current 1GB limit is becoming a problem already) .
Also, HD on Android devices? How many different screen resolutions do you need to take into account there? Apple is getting ridiculous for developers already (with at least 4 different resolutions across devices), and with the Android fragmentation I assume it is even worse there.

I would've thought they could just make universal apps similarly to how iOS does it, though I suppose that probably also jacks up the filesize...

On that note, that might be why there's a separate app for Star Warfare in Chinese: while most of the inner core workings appear to be the same, they've simply changed all the text to display Chinese, minus a few exceptions (Title Screen logo, weapon names, etc).

One thing I've found quite interesting though: the core contents of the installation files aren't actually identical between the English and Chinese versions of the game. I'm swiping between the two apps on an iPad 3, and I can see some noticeable quality differences between the two apps when you pay attention to the graphics: some of the textures on the Chinese version of the app appears more pixelated and blurred, whereas the English version of the app has much sharper detail and definition of things like armour panelling and the details on some of the weapons (the Laser Cannon looks somewhat messy in the Chinese version).

I do not understand Chinese at all, so no point for me in buying a Chinese-only app. Well, the characters look a good measure of awesomeness better than Latin alphabet

The font they used here for the Chinese characters looks fairly standard: it's a bit like the Chinese equivalent of "Arial", so to speak -- nothing quite as fancy as the customised font we've got for the English version.

Arrow0x: the funny thing is, this time both products come from the same vendor. In exchange for sharper graphics, the actual text and language is slightly off in the English version, so there's sorta a trade-off either way
