Ace Ferrara And The Dino Menace [$2.99 -> FREE for the 1st time]







My publisher and I parted ways, so I'm re-releasing my game and self-publishing it from here on out. Unfortunately they couldn't transfer the app to my account (apps can't be transferred if they use iCloud), so I needed to release it as an entirely new app.
This means that existing players will have to repurchase it. To address this, I'm setting the game free until January 2nd.

The game is a space combat sim in the style of Wing Commander, with simplified 2D controls, so as to be playable on touchscreens, and an 80s cartoon storyline. Shaun Musgrave wrote a great review of it when it launched in late August: http://toucharcade.com/2014/08/29/ac...menace-review/

Thanks for the heads up...I bought it on release day. Would have sucked if I had to repurchase it later. I hate that Apple doesn't let you transfer...I've repurchased a couple games in the past because of this and I disliked doing that. Thanks again.

I didn't purchase the game, although it looks very interesting, I liked Wing Commander, but I appreciate your desire to try and make things all good with your customer base. I agree that the Apple model is sort of crazy about not allowing transfers. Best of luck for your game and future endeavors!

Got the reference, I used to watch Dr.Who but I'm stuck on season 8 as I haven't had a lot of spare time recently.

I submitted an update that'll fix that bug yesterday! It should hit the store in a couple of days.

In the meantime, the game auto-saves, so unless you start a new game at some point, you should be able to play it through without problems. Alternatively, the bug shouldn't occur if you log out of Game Center before going into a load/save menu.

Oh and happy new year, you guys!
