iOs 4 incompatibilities

Since updating to iOs 4 I cannot play both Glyder games anymore, the frame rates are choppy and tilt controls do not work properly. Hopefully both get updated.

Now playing: Unworded, Aurora Puzzle Adventure, Steamworld Heist, PinOut!, Sproggiwood, Colorcube, kubic, Mekorama, Open Bar!
Waiting for: Any Star Realms expansion, Nyheim, Onirim

As far as I can tell, Glyder had serious bugs with iOS4, and GLU fixed them by deleting the game forever. I have Glyder 2 still sitting on my iPod Touch, but the hit detection is atrocious - you often crash by flying within 20 yards of a surface, where half of the pickups live. Sometimes, Erin will simply crash first thing upon leaving her pedestal.

It's a shame, Glyder was a truly beautiful series. They did a great job capturing the freedom of flight, and the tilt controls worked better than any controller ever could.

Oh NO! The Glyder series was one of the better efforts of Glu- spare me Toyshop, Gun Bros etc.

Hmm....I'll have to remember this when (or if) they release any new games.

I'm sure their decision is purely financial. It's a sad truth, but many games are so cheap in the app store... and they have to compete with a bazillion other cheap apps. If a particular app does not do well, the publisher has to decide if it's worth their effort to pump any more $ into the project.
