Fast app switching is a must - it is useless to me to have a wonderful game and have to wait for it to load when I might be in line and want to play but oh wait it is still loading - ok I will pop bubbles in the meantime - no, will play something else. Please fix this, I am sure it is something you can do along with syncing those achieves to GC.
Thanks for your input man, we're already working on the gamecenter thingy as well as iCloud sync(!), so you can continue playing on other devices of yours.
We'll also look at the fast switching.

Going free is a last option we will use to keep this game in charts if it doesn't hold up, but we truly believe it will do well! I can promise we won't go free with this one anytime soon.

Can't tell you anything specific about the upcoming levels, but they will have the new fun gameplay elements.

Why achievements are not in Game Center?

(ok it fast app switched if I went back to it in a few minutes but wait an hour or two and bam lost)
The thing is, New England Gamer, that Fish Heroes needs A LOT of memory. And, as you're saying, if you come back in few hours, when you played something else, this memory had to be freed. Thus is needs to relaunch. But, we'll try to fix that.

so far I have not experienced unduly long load-times. But glad Craneballs are working on memory issues that may affect other users!!

Thanks so much for addressing my concerns and laying out your future plans etc. That is one reason I respect you guys so much and your games are an instant one purchase for me - you tell it like it is and don't get defensive as some developers have been lately.

And as far as upcoming stuff goes? There is a ton there already and since I am a perfectionist going for 3 stars I can't imagine I will run out of stuff to do anytime soon!

Thanks again, this is a really great game.

Terrific game. One of the posts above reads as if the dev is working on implementing iCloud sync, but it's already there, isn't it? I don't see it in the iCloud storage section in Settings.app, but progress does appear to be syncing between my iPhone and iPad.

Anyway, again -- great game. It's rare that I breeze through an iOS game this quickly, but I've nearly finished all of the levels in this one.

Can anyone compare this to the recent Chillingo release of Catapult King?

Believe me, you just need to make great marketing with this on and 100% it will be in the top!
