Default Bridge to the Moon (by Joseph Williams)

Uh....How in the world did this get overlooked? Not even a thread for it? I only discovered it because I signed up for the Isle of Bxnes beta and this is from the same devs

Typically people want apps to be optimized for iPad; taking full advantage of the larger screen at native resolution versus an app simple running in 2x stretched mode.

Oh, I just assumed that if it said compatible with iPad, meant universal.

Yep, sorry if there was any confusion there if that was stated incorrectly on my end anywhere. I originally designed it for the iPhone 4/4s (hence any auto-letterboxing seen on the left/right), if there's any interest I can certainly update it to the 5 & newer iPhones in the next few days.

iPad might be a little tricker due to the custom HUD and camera, but I could adapt that sometime post beta release of Isle of Bxnes.

Thanks so much for the interest! If anyone has questions or anything just ask!

The art style is amazing and judging from the video, i thought this could be a very interesting gameplay as well. Yeah, could be, if there weren't the two annoying things. First, no iphone5 support (i knew that) makes the reach of the buttons not intuitive anymore, and second, for the left/right buttons you have to lift your finger, what in a 'dodge' game like this is a killer.

I put the game on hold in the hope, that both problems will get a solution.
As is right now, don't bother with it. At least the dollar went to a talented Dev and not to a big company.

Edit: Bridg...Moon under the icon is also an indicator, that the love and thoughts didn't go all the way to the end.
(But that's just my opinion)
