Am I misreading this, or are you actually saying that your game will NOT support/work on older devices once you come out with an iPhone 5 update? If so, it makes no sense for me to buy this game now to play on my iPod Touch. Why get half-way through it, then have you update so it no longer runs on my device? Or did you mean something different than what you said?

No, I might have explained this wrong. You can totally download and play the game on any of your iOS3.2+ devices. No update will ever break the app. But in case we once roll out the iPhone 5 support, it is not possible to install that update on any armv6 device, including iPhone 3G and iPod touch 2nd gen. This is an Apple limitation we tried to work around by first not supporting 4" retina so all devices can play the game.

I hope this helps understand why we decided to release the game the way we did. I hope you will enjoy the game, no reason to hold back from downloading this onto your iPhone 3G or iPod touch 2nd gen, the game runs just fine, no glitches on those devices!

This thread is definitely the one thing that drives our decision on how to release the game for iPhone 5 and iPad, so yes, your vote counts here ;-)

Will buy when there's an hd version. Developers should stop being device prejudice! Only kidding. I understand the hardships of being a small dev team. Still waiting for that hd version though. :-)

So I will count this as a vote towards a seperate universal app then?

For me i would like to have this version get universal, because then I would buy it now and not wait for an hd version. And I think many people will hold back till this is decided.
Thanks
Berndt

I appreciate why you chose to do what you did - but there are probably a lot more iPhone 5 users out there now than 3GS users (if nothing else the 3GS plastic case is probably brittle and cracked by now!). 3GS and iTouch 2nd Gen owners are used to heartbreak by now - but us iPhone 5 users are still madly in love... don't break our hearts too...!
