Yes, we are working on the iPhone version, and then will add Multiplayer after that.

What the heck?! This has been out since April?!! Where have I been? I'm another huge fan from way back. I used to host a customized webserver for friends back in the 90s--we'd use it to exchange save files. Internet multiplayer!

I mainly wanted to extend my compliments to christophercotton. The game isn't as polished-looking as what we're used to, but the essential gameplay elements are there. After about 10 minutes my initial suggestions are:

- Retina-ize more than just the text.

- Make "Organize Fleets" less confusing.

- Tap and hold on a planet for context menu: build ships, organize fleets, abandon, ...

These are small things. So glad to have Ho! back in my life!

1.0.3 submitted

The 1.0.3 version has been submitted to the AppStore. Once it gets released, I'll post a full update. The big benefits are French Translation, History Graphs, name a planet when you go up in ranks, and fixing the bug when you scrap all ships and it would crash.

Now, back to finishing up the iPhone version.

Great news! I have the Beta and it is really a great step!

With the iPhone Support the game will be perfect ...

Are you going to support the iPhone 5 resolution?

We are working on improving the organize fleets and build ships dialogs, since we are redoing them for the iPhone so they will fit better. And yes, having more "tap" on the planet to help out would be great.

1.0.3 version released, French!

Hey All,

the 1.0.3 update for Spaceward Ho! just hit the AppStore. One big feature is a French translation! Here are the full comments for it.

- French translation! Yay for French! (Thanks to Jerome V. and Alan G. for the help)
- Once again, there is Hope is the Galaxy. See if you can evacuate it.
- When you win and go up in rank (display the rank screens), and you can now name a planet
- Add in the History Graphs. Now you can check your status with the other players
- Newly built ships are yellow in color to identify them as new ships
- Add completely redone "New Game" screen
- Fixed: If you never deleted games, you could crash on the "Continue" Only display the last 20 games.
- Fixed: Build ships after scrapping all fleets would crash, or any time you see the Planet(0) reported by so many people.
- Fixed: Player surrenders had duplicate $$ (reported by tjdunnigan)
- Fixed: Dip into savings a second time would give an invalid number
- Save the Best Buddies State on the new Game Screen

Thanks to all the testers and feedback. Keep it coming!

If you own the game, place go and rate the app again, since the ratings go away when you release a new version.
