V1.0.4

Hi guys,

V1.0.4 is out now!

If you are running iOS6 on your iPad, it only takes less than 30 secs to update

If you were unable to continue Campaign in previous versions, please select "new game“ when tapping the center map in Campaign mode, everything should be fine and you won't lose any saved progress or Intrinsic Energy.

√ Difficulty for Casual Campaign is re-balanced;
√ Leaderboards added for some challenging Campaign/Quickplay levels;
√ Improved memory consumption, sound effects and game UI (You can use two finger tap to quickly pause/resume game).

Enjoy!


You can also visit our forum for strategy guide, which supports a ton of different languages

Thanks for the update! No wonder the game updated so fast I thought there was a bug. Kept checking app store updates to see if it did update.

Yup, thanks so much for your continued support! Any chance you're working on a better English translation? If not, I'd love to volunteer... I re-did the translation for Gene Effect's mission logs... =o)

If you'd like me to, feel free to send me a PM. =oD

Yep, everything is stable now, and the game runs even better on iOS6.

Thanks for the offer man! I will PM you to discuss it.

P.S. If anyone is interested in helping us translate the game to other languages, it would be really appreciated by all of our team and other gamers too. I always think gamers have better understanding of the terminology than translation companies, so please get in touch with us to discuss it in details.



And we've just received a couple of reviews, if anyone is interested:

We are working on this right now, and we still need to optimize the performance and memory usage of the retina version since it's got a ton of graphic assests that consume huge amount of memory, so we will let you know as soon as it's submitted for approval.

As I'm looking at one of the enhanced maps right now, the richer colors made it look quite sharp and detailed without a doubt.

I think they should too


What's coming next --

We have received a couple of reviews saying the first few levels are a bit dull & tedious, well, now we are looking at the game again a month later since its release and we realize the early tutorial levels could indeed use some improvements. We have buried the cool features way too deep in the late levels.

So, in the next update we will improve the gameplay, try to strike a balance between challenge, accessibility and most importantly, FUN, and we might include some new levels too if things go smoothly.

And big thanks to all the gamers who have offered valuable suggestions, especially Erik!
