New update out. No new levels - just changes for the iphone 5's larger screen. Haven't checked much, but it basically seems to show a bigger picture area. That may mean you can adjust some strategies but I'm not sure if it will make any difference until I go through all the levels I haven't maxed out on yet.

Shouldn't make any difference at all on the other iphones, etc, but I'll probably mess around with my bad levels just in case I can get some scores to improve anyway. If the other active players here do the same, it shouldn't take much time to see if there is any difference in play - but we'll all have to get slo-mo all over again since the update process kills it.

That in itself is pretty awesome, considering the lengths FTG have gone with updating this app. They continue adding levels after all this time, for an app that has only ever been $1 and often free.

Cover Orange is why I buy anything they release on day one. They've published several other great apps too, like Mahjong Elements and Tentacle Wars.

How lame...

Previous version (v2.5) crashed under iOS3. And no fix for monthes.
Now v2.5.1 is "iOS43+". So, we can't keep the previous version (it crashes) and we can't update to the latest one (it's not compatible anymore).
So, we are screwed ! Thanks FDG. Keep the money.

Because we are minority, you can screw us. Fine philosophy.

Sorry but its not our fault that new Xcode doesn't support iOS3.
We can't turn down modern devices and stay lost in the past because of that ..

- You knew v2.5 crashed with iOS3. Where's the fix ? You should have fixed it at once.
- You can still use an older SDK. Apple doesn't block that.
- You can still deal with older iDevices. Look at "Doodle Jump": they have done an arm6+arm7+arm7s executable, working from iPhone1/iOS3 to iPhone5/iOS6, without a problem. That's not that hard. You too should have tried.
- Giving an "iOS43+ only" version is not the real problem. The real problem is that the previous version (v2.5) is screwed. You should have fixed this "iOS3 compatible" version first, so at least people can keep it forever and ignore the next updates. Now people have nothing: the old version crashes and the new version is incompatible. That sucks.

You're angry because a .99 cent game doesn't work on your five and a half year old phone, and you're taking it out on FDG? If I send a dollar to your Paypal will you shut up and never come back?

Now FREE again. I can remember that I played it when it was free for the first time 2011 and that it was pretty fun. But:

Does anybody who has finished (or has almost finished) the game know something about the (later added)

Top In-App Purchases

pack of 5 helmets $0.99
pack of 15 helmets $1.99
unlimited helmets $4.99

I read the ten last pages or so in this thread but the IAPs aren't mentioned anywhere (and the tA search can't find "IAPs" in this thread). Is it because they are completely optional? Or are they needed to proceed? Is there a paywall? Is there much grinding if you don't pay? Can you restore purchases? TIA.
