Don't forget though, we were ios devs first (which is why android version still isn't out), we all own and play tons and tons of ios games. We would never give the platform a sub par version or one that we weren't completely happy with.
Fair enough, fair enough. Still a little confused as to why android gets these extra cloth physics, but I'll take your word for it, framerate is far more important to me than some extra effects.

So you mean that cloth animations etc. will ruin the game experience on an iPad3 but it will be okay for Tegra 3 devices??????

That was what I was thinking. If anything iPad 3 should be getting extra effects, seeing as how the GPU smashed the tegra 3. We don't need full retina, in fact I don't want retina, but the gpu power going to extra effects and framerate. Gameloft hopefully learned that after NOVA 3, I wish other devs would follow suit or at least give us a toggle for it like GL (for once) so kindly did.

Hope this helps.


Its ok. Touch owners will just spend the money slotted for this game on something else.

iPad 3 has an incredibly high resolution screen which is a bit performance hit and nvidia knows physics so tegra works out of the box easily with it.

Could you consider giving us iPad 3 owners an option in a future update to run in a lower resolution but with all effects, or in higher res with disabled effects, like Gameloft did with NOVA 3? That way we would all be happy (because we're all whining about cloth physics, lol)

I know i know... This is what i was waiting when i first hear about the resolution on the new iPad... Anyway your game looks really AWESOME on my iPad... Just get little bit unhappy when i hear that i have the most powerful touch tablet and i cannot play some games at full effects etc. because of Apple decision to put such a huge resolution and give there so much horsepower.

How is the performance on the iPhone 4? And how much of a graphics reduction is here compared to the 4S?

Shame how they're limiting the market for the game. Surely they could downgrade the graphics enough to make it run.

That is a great point about nova. I will bring it up to team.
