Where has TouchArcade said that? So far I've only seen TouchArcade ask if this is iPad only.

Yo I'm the dev.

Yeah iPad only. The game doesn't really work on smaller screens.

And the ta quote is from here: [url]http://toucharcade.com/2014/04/14/miniverse-announced[/url]



also the linking system on this forum sucks. I always have issues with it. Deal with the shittly formatted link.

Well... hello to you, too ! Got up on the wrong side of the bed, did you ? Don't think I'll be bothering with this game, if you were developing with that kind of attitude going on in your head. Got enough negativity in this world, thank you very much.

haha I'm really sorry if that came off as being an asshole.

I meant it more as light negative / dark humor?

Really the only negativity is that I can't figure out how to format links in these forums. Which is more of a diss on myself.

For anyone wondering, the free aspect of the game is that it is kind of a demo with a limited number of levels initially available to play, with further levels being acquired via IAP if you decide you like the game. This kind of marketing model is honest and decent: you try it; if you like it, you can buy more of it. If you don't like it, it cost you nothing to find that out.

148apps' review sounded like it was marking the game down for using this demo + IAP model. I can't really understand how they can see it as a negative as it lets players try the game and decide if it's the kind of thing they want to spend money on. Their rationale is that the more interesting game features are in the add-on IAP levels... which sounds kind of obvious to me.

My only gripe is that the controls can be fiddly when you're against the clock, but the original feel of the game goes a long way to counter that.
