Hello everyone,

The price was set at $0.99. But a ZERO SALE could be made for the first adopters, so don't forget to check it out on May 9th

Thank you for the question about the Campaign mode. It is included in iPhone version for all supported devices. "Mini" in the titile relates to the screen size, not to the amount of content

The Multiplayer mode could be unavailable on devices that are not capable of providing solid performance in online multiplayer mode. We kindly ask you to check the game description in iTunes Store before making the purchase, if Multiplayer is what you aim for. We thank you for understanding.

Best regards,

Thank you for kind words. We hope we managed to make the Campaign equally enjoyable experience on iPhone (squeezit is our second name now ). We look forward to hearing feedback from players - the final judgment belongs to them.

So is this a separate version than the iPad? I have the iPad version and love it. I would love to play it on the go. I don't mind doubling up. Some games have just released universal updates lately and I was just wondering about that.

Assuming this is a second version - can you play cross devices? Would love to play with my nephews on the iPad and on the iPhone!

This will be an insta-get for me.

Hi New England Gamer,

Great to hear you have our game on iPad - thank you! BTW, did you know that this Thursday the Online Multiplayer update for iPad will go live?

Answering your question - yes, Mushroom Wars Mini is a separate release. We had to adjust maps and controls to make the game playable on devices with small screen.

But the major reason why we did not go with universal is the app size. The iPhone version is smaller, so there - hopefully - will be more space for great music and cool photos on your iPhones and iPods

Direct play across devices is not included in this game, but we keep it in mind for the future updates.

Best regards,
