Think I might. Not solely because of the Universal issue, but that coupled with the fact that I've had 6 crashes every single time I've tried to play "Endless". I haven't requested a refund in well over 3 years, mainly because it's a hassle for a couple of measly dollars, but whatever.

hey metalcasket,

I'm the lead programmer at SMASHWORX, I'll look into the crash issue for you. What iOS device and iOS version are you running?

And sorry for the confusion, the app is not universal, retina, or iPhone 5 optimized. That review quote was from 2010 and even then it wasn't universal but it did run on the original iPad.

We didn't have the resources to do a graphic overhaul to make the game universal so we chose not to and to just fix all the problems we felt the game had--as a game--in it's original 2010 release.

Any chance of a universal update or a separate HD version ? because it really looks good.

hey shero89,

I'm the lead programmer at SMASHWORX, I wish there was an iPad version too! Unfortunately we didn't have the resources to do that for this update. The game is almost 3 years old now and it took us about that long to finally release an update that fixed all the issues we felt the game had as a game.

We improved the things that we could afford to improve including new redesigned UI, redesigned levels, rerendered movies for better quality, and a brand new soundtrack.

I'd never say never but it would be a big and costly update. The game never caught on that much in 2010 so we've been just investing money into it for the love of the game and wanting to make it right.
