Everplay, thank you for creating a great game that people obviously care about instead of making another one of the 95% of app store offerings that serve no purpose except to make it hard to find gems like Spellsword.

Thank you for offering Spellsword at $0.99, even though to me, it is easily worth $2.99.

Thank you for continuing to provide free updates that keep the game interesting for me.

Thank you for considering creative ways to keep the project alive after its profitability waned, instead of just killing the project and moving on to the next flavor of the week.

Thank you for considering my interests in making the update by implementing IAPs as an option, rather than a requirement for experiencing all the game has to offer. I'm a grinder.

Thank you for listening to your users and participating in this forum, even though it means putting up with all kinds of unhelpful childishness.

Finally, lest readers think I'm under some kind of delusion that you've done all this just to be nice: Thank you for being smart capitalists--the kind who understand that to make money, you have to do what's best for the members of your current AND FUTURE market even though it isn't possible to please every individual.

Keep layin' down the code.
THANK YOU very much for such kind words. It is players like you that keep us going strong!

Truthfully, it was a very tough decision and one we wold make again under the circumstances, but the goal is for it to provide continual update rather than simply abandoning the game.

Thanks again!

Unfortunately, it's gamers like us at TA, who are willing to pay for a good gaming experience to enjoy an ad-free, IAP-free game, that pay the price for the developer's lack of success because we've invested in a game that now has ads and IAPs where there were none before. I really wish Apple wouldn't allow developers to do this, but then they may be limiting their own opportunity to make 30% of every sale, so that will never happen.

If it matters, I support Bool Zero's statements 100%; however, that opinion usually falls on deaf ears and the only people that respond are the fanboys. Shame, really.
Agreed. It's a dishonest practice that's becoming super common. Early adopters of Rune Raiders are the latest victims.

An update is in submission which revises the difficulty that some players have mentioned.

Default Spellgod cap?

Here's a suggestion: I don't know about other users, but I don't like having items that say "???????????" instead of telling me how to achieve the thing. I've completed all missions, I'm maxed on everything, but for the life of me I can't figure out how to get the Spellgod Cap.

Would be nice to know how.

Anyone know if this will be getting the iphone 5 update? I sure hope so because playing these games is hard to do without the widescreen support due to the buttons being closer to the middle of the screen.

It used to be free, but not anymore. We tried doing it "all free" but we got a lot of hate compared to a paid download, so we are finally switching back.

Thanks!

Once Ace of Blades comes out, we may make Spell Sword free again for a week or so.

Our next games are Rock Blocker, coming out early February followed by another much, much more hardcore arena game that will be announced Friday.
