Prince of Persia Classic iOS dev reply

Hey Everyone

Universal Build? We made separate builds for the iPhone (optimized for Retina) and iPad (optimized for HD). A universal build would be really huge (in size)… something we wanted to avoid.

Device Support? We extended the support to multiple iOS devices and focused on enhancing the experience on each.

Supported devices:
  • iPhone 3Gs and above
  • iPod Touch 3rd gen and above
  • iPad 1 and above

Repurchase?Those who purchased the game previously, please update! (No... you don’t need to buy the game again!)

Controls? The Game comes with customizable controls that you can place as per your comfort.

Thank you all for your support! Hope you enjoy the game!

Do give us your feedback!!

Looks great. Downloading right now. So um, what's the possibility of getting Rayman Origins on iPad? Yeah

Was the old version of the game separate iPhone and iPad versions, because I seem to have it on both my iPhone and iPad, and on the iPad it is HD. If it was universal, how is that going to work if I update on my iPad? Won't I end up with the non-HD iPhone version??? I'm scared to hit the update button....

Is this supposed to be a replacement for Prince of Persia Retro? If it is, then the update process isn't working for me on my iPad 1. The App Store sees Prince of Persia Retro and Prince of Persia Classic HD as two separate products.

It's not showing up as an update on my iPad either, but if we would have ended up with non-HD graphics, than that is just as well. Now I don't have to worry about having to manually update my apps in order to avoid getting an unwanted downgrade.
