new controls suck, because action button is above up button and it's not always handy.

i will not update as the old controls worked nicely.

Ubisoft should've just added a better instruction rather than ruining a perfectly great control. I've hit the update button and deleted the old file... ARRGH!!!

Four most influential games: Papi Jump, iDracula, Fieldrunners, Flight Control.

I updated but haven't tried the controls yet. I was always annoyed with how the old controls covered the bottom of the screen, so maybe this will prove better. Maybe it just takes some getting use to. I guess I'll find out soon enough.

On the other hand, no iOS 4 multitasking.

Ok, quick update. So far I think I really like the new controls. I just jumped into level 8 and had no problem at all with them, in fact it played great, and they no longer cover up the screen so much. I give it a thumbs up so far, except for the lack of Retina display and iOS 4 improvements.

Sorry if this has been mentioned already, but does anyone know how to get the "big" power up potion that gives additional health point in Level 5?

As I recall when I played the game long time ago you could open the door and close it as Shadow/Dark Prince appeared and stop him from taking the potion.
But on iPhone Shadow/Dark Prince goes through the closed door as if there is no door at all... Is that a bug?

Yes, Ubi does not care about their customers, they just dont give a s.

Im so mad right now, because Ive bought this and now am unable to play it. I will never purchase another Ubi Title again, this is outrageous. This is exactly why DRM sucks, folks.

There should be a list of developers who screw over their customers. If I pay for the game, I should be able to f play it, period. Pirates probably can play this title where as legit buyers can not.

Sorry for the rant, but this is my last purchase from Ubi for sure. Dont come crying about piracy when you scew people over like this.

I don't blame you for being pissed, i don't like it when devs do this but this is also the reason why we can backup the games before deleting them. DRM is not totally at fault, that just prevents you from downloading an unauthorized version.

This title appears to have made a miraculous reappearance in the app store.
