Hm, I do not see any problems with Facebook connect.
Maybe you make a second FB account or remove the rights you gave the app later.
The bigger problem is that the game is not running on an iPad 1...

To stop people downloading it on an iPad 1 and then whining when it doesn't work.

Wow Devs are getting really lazy of late with all of this 'multiplayer, network required' junk being released with no offline AI gameplay.

Hopefully it'll be a fad though, these apps will crash and burn, teach the devs they need to do a proper job and we'll see some good titles again!

Do what I did. Create a new Facebook account, all u need is another email account, and use a handle u like as your name.

Don't add any friends and just use if for iOS gaming.

But, PvP only sucks. I agree with u all there. Might still try it tho, why not.

I dislike the idea of a pvp only King's Bounty too... but this is a successful facebook app that has been around for a year and a half on facebook. Like the upcoming ultima online mmorpg, the ios platform is not the platform the developers are targeting. They are just looking to make things more convenient for some users who want to continue playing on the go.

I am just saying it to put things into perspective for some who think this(and the ultima online mmorpg) is an ios exclusive release!

Its definately not pvp only although the quests need energy bars like so many of the ios games these days,it takes 5 minutes to recharge each bar.I had to try it because i like Kings Bounty but am not the customer there looking for.

Disappointing. Would have preferred one that doesn't require online or facebook.
