iPad games from Astraware

We're aiming to have a few titles at launch or shortly after.

We're hoping to have OddBlob, Astraware Sudoku, Astraware Solitaire and Astraware Casino ready. We're working on these being Universal binaries. I've seen OddBlob running on the simulator already and the clay pieces look gorgeous on the bigger screen - the bananas look so delicious, I want to reach into the screen and eat them!

Great news! I have almost every Astraware game since my Palm days.

iPhone 6 and iPad Mini iOS 8

Hi,

Great news to read, especially the news these will be universal versions.

Good luck with these.

It looks like we may have to release iPad versions separately for the initial launch and then combined universal binaries as updates to the existing iPhone versions after release.

So that means even if I've already bought OddBob for the iPhone, I'll need to repurchase it for the iPad?

I would say hold fire and we'll get a universal build update out as soon as possible. We may be able to get it out for release, but things are a little unclear at the moment. There will be a universal build though!

Okay, no rush, I might give in to the iPadmania but will try to hold off a few weeks if not more.

Please do hold off. It'll be purely down to approvals - OddBlob is one of the 3 titles we've already submitted and it's definitely our intention to have Universal builds. The clay graphics look amazing in the larger size!
