Meteor Blitz won't go 2x on ipad


Every game I have allows me to use 2x but meteor blitz won't sow the 2x symbol. Any ideas??

Yup, it's our bad. We just got our iPad a week ago and immediately realized that.

We actually just finished putting the final touches on an update for Meteor Blitz and I'll be submitting it to Apple this afternoon.

It adds the 2x button on the iPad, and in addition:

- Stage select screen (so you don't have to restart the entire world if you run out of lives)
- Faster framerates
- Faster load times
- Bigger particle effects
- Auto gravity gun
- Gameplay balancing

Thanks so much! This was one of the first games I tried when I first got my iPad and was so disappointed that it wasn't going into 2x mode.

Can't wait!

Will there be an iPad version or does the 2x scaled up look good enough?

Yup, we're planning an iPad-specific version of Meteor Blitz.

The 2x iPhone version looks okay, but I think we can do a lot better with an iPad-only version.

Just finished submitting to Apple. Anyone know how long it takes Apple to approve apps these days?

It seems to be MUCH faster now.

App updates are getting approved in a couple days.

I have found that not everything works in iPhone emulation mode. Red Conquest for me crashes and has missing screen controls
