Bobby Carrot 1.1 update

Hi Together,

time for a new Bobby Carrot thread as we are launching the 1.1 update very soon (going final and uploading to iTunes today). This new update is also like a fresh start for the game as it is a major update with lots of fixes and features. It is also the last tech update so we are now starting to integrate the 7th world!

Whatīs new in 1.1:

- System popup messages (low memory check, support tip if getting stuck)
- reworked and improved both controls (2-handed, 1-handed controls)
- added virtual d-pad control for left handed and right handed
- Videotutorial
- 2-Finger tap quickmenu for quick level restart
- level selection after a world has been completed.
- optional Quickstart right after the loading screen
- update of zoom mode call function to prevent activation by accident
- fixed some other bugs

Nothing will stand in the way now to fully enjoy this game!
We are also re-enabling the lite version (then 1.1) soon as 1.05 was pulled from us after 48 hours due to the bad control feedback


cheers

Thatīs great! Thank you very much!
Itīs thanks to you and others who recommend us, that we can exist quite well with a higher priced premium title among all those cheap $0.99 apps. No need to be in the Top100 to make solid money if the demand stays solid. However it would still be great to be on a top position, of course!


all the best

Even with lots of new great games that i have bought (Sway, Zen bound, and Ancient Frog -- all absolutely AMAZING, highly recommend), bobby carrot forever has remained my favorite ipod touch/iphone game. The difficulty is perfect, challenging but not frustrating. Probably will wait until 1.2 update, as I finished the game A LONG time ago, but hopefully 1.1 will increase your sales. Best of luck to you and your game!

BTW, the virtual d-pad is available as an option
Yes itīs just an option, both other control schemes stay 100% intact.
