Sorry I did not notice that it's a sub forum of iPhone and iTouch games, while iPACROSS is for iPad and Mac. Should I delete the post? ...

Done.

I already have it posted in both iPad and Mac forums. So I just asked to delete the post, if it's not ok to be here.

Thank you for the suggestion

THis is the rit place for all price drops on iPad, iPhone, Mac. Etc.

The sale starts when, exactly?

Friday? Saturday? Thinking of giving out any promo codes for us eager to provide detailed and helpful reviews? I noticed there are no reviews on the Canadian store

The sale will be on Apr. 16 & 17, this Sat and Sun.

Currently you might not see any reviews on the App Store because we just had an update yesterday :P It seems Apple hide all the reviews when a new update released, and will only show them again when enough people reviewed on the new version.

We really appreciate people giving our game positive reviews because of the quality, the experience, and the love. We did not offer any promo codes for a quite long time. With the planned discount, I guess the $1.99 should not be an obstacle for a player to grab the game and have dozens hours of fun

THE SALE STARTED!

*** Please double check the price in App Store. I am not sure if all the price adjustment is happening at the same time, or could be various according to the time zone. ***

It seems I should explain why we made iPACROSS iPad and Mac only...

Copied from my blog:
Quote:
We had a tough discussion about whether we should make it a universal application to run on both iPhone and iPad. And we realized that it would be impracticable to put a medium size board on iPhone screen without zoom-in. The operation would be unnatural. So we decided to give up the iPhone and concentrate on iPad only.
So, we drop the iPhone compatibility is not we were dodging making money. Instead of that, I believe in that we should (and could) make money from building up a great game and providing a perfect gaming experience. Unfortunately, for this certain kind of game, I don't know how to achieve that within the screen size limitation of iPhone. I feel really sorry for that...
