... having said that, bought this anyway and I'm really impressed - what a lovely game - and it really doesn't matter that iPhone 5 is not currently supported.

As this seems to be what most people think is fair and would like to see happen, we will go with this. Once the iPad version is ready, the version in the AppStore right now will become universal. There will be however an update without iPhone 5 / iPad support to fix any upcoming bugs, so users with older devices can benefit from it (as of now, we didn't get any bug reports, but as @TheFrost pointed out to us, we need to rework the spanish translation). We don't want any users to be left in the cold. I hope this way everyone can enjoy the game as it is right now and revisit it when an iPad and iPhone 5 update comes out.

Me neither

Our current plan is to release the updates in the following order:

1.Fixes (no reports yet, touch wood) - This is to make sure that all devices get the bugfix update

2.iPad1/2/3/4 - This will have full retina support on the iPad3/4.

Optional 2.5 Levelpack update. We have already received the wish for more levels, so we will include either a levelupdate or a mechanism to update levels without updating the app via the store, so update number 3 doesn't prevent people from getting new levels.

3.iPhone5 - This will be the update people with older devices won't be able to install. Full support for the iPhone 4" retina screen.

This might not be 100% accurate, any suggestions welcome, just so you know what our plans are right now.

Happy puzzling and thanks for playing!

A little status update from us and ways to keep in touch:

Even though we didn't get an Apple Feature (yet, maybe ), we made it to the top three in games (german store).



Thanks so much everyone for your support!

There is a little code giveaway by Black Pants Studio, they are sharing codes via facebook and twitter.

Twitter: @blackpantsgames and @boutLoveAndHate
Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/BlackPantsGameStudio

We will continue working on our universal version of the app which will come as an update to the current version. We try to get our hands on one of those iPad Minis asap so we can test whether everything works as expected before releasing.

Cheers!

You will have to make this very, very clear for people with older devices. Apple doesn't make it easy to not install an update, nor do they make it easy to save older versions of a program so you can reinstall them should you update accidentally. Once you break your game for older devices, you will have a lot of unhappy customers. Hard to say if it'll be as many as are unhappy about no iPhone 5 support, but that's just the way it is.

This is not how it is going to work. The iPhone 5 update will not even be presented to people with older devices. You won't be able to break your install of the game. If you need further technical details, I am happy to explain.

Thank you for your interest in the game and happy puzzling!

I hope you update the game to universal support before updating iPhone 5 support.. I think alot of ppl would be annoyed if they missed out on the universal update after buying this game to play on iPad only..
I'll probably be finished the game by then and delete it so it probably won't effect me too much, but others like to keep the game on their device for longer.. Haven't played again for a while.. Last time I played was last time I posted, got up to 33. Tough level to crack. Will try to get through another big chunk today on my break and way home.
