Thanks, no iCloud at the moment, but i will surely try to make it happen if more than 20 people download the game! Anyhow, it won't feel like you play the same game twice. There is also a diffrent feel to the game on iPhone versus the iPad, because of the screen size difference. Both are extremely fun to hook up to a hd-projector via hdmi mirroring though! (real hdmi support also on my to do list)

I have just submitted to the app store, but since this is my first game (with some very unconventional graphics and gui), i have no idea if i will encounter any problems in the review process. Normal time for approval is 5-7 working days i hear.

I just had such a blast making the video that i wanted to share it with you all!

Melodive has my rapt attention. When it's released I'll be mashing that 'buy' button so frickin' hard... I'm unsure if I've ever seen another iOS title LOOK like that, very impressive, indeed. I am so eager to see for myself the depth of all that sumptuousness. A sincere 'thank you' for expanding from your initial interest of an iPad-only title to a universal build.

Hey, thank you so much for your kind words! For me it's very encouraging to get this kind of feedback, as i am very unsure of the appeal of the game. It's not very traditional, and it doesnt hold your hand, so i think it will only be for a select few, but thats ok, because i made it for myself! But, of course, if other people also enjoy this, i will be very happy!
