yeah, and also have to adapt as important as games with Plants vs zombies, Cut the Rope, Angry Birds, Fruit Ninja, Bad Piggies, Water?, Horn, Real Racing 2..., very badly by companies that do not fit those games, a greeting.

True.

I bought Angry Birds Space the day I got my 5th gen Touch, and couldn't believe it was not widescreen yet. Rovio, you don't make enough money to do this?

The issue isn't a simple as "don't you have enough money?", believe it or not. We're going to run an article at some point this week explaining how it all works. Cliffsnotes essentially amounts to you can either support the massive pool of legacy devices OR the new aspect ratio of the iPhone 5.

Hmm... with Angry birds they could just expand the viewing area to the left and right? Don't see how that would break the game on legacy devices??

Hmm, now that is interesting.
I'm very curious to see what kind of issues devs are coming across in relation to it.
I'm hearing various reports that don't quite match.
I'm assuming you spoke to a range of devs about it? Because I would love to hear their views on it.
I had an impression that the time consumption to change it was one of the biggest issues for busy developers.

Updates gonna come late today due to my internet having a bad couple days still. Getting it fixed tomorrow.

Couple of games of note with widescreen updates are Tripple Town and Carcassone, both rated highly by TA

Mystery of the Japanese Werewolf Ep 1 went widescreen:

Seems like a good retro platformer.
